Arnolds Park Upgrades On Track

ARNOLDS PARK, Iowa (AP) – Officials at Arnolds Park Amusement Park say two renovation projects remain on schedule.
Renovation on The Legend, one of the oldest wooden roller coasters in the world, is set to be complete by the time the park reopens in May. The nearly $1 million project included replacing much of the structure’s tracks.  The first one third of the track was replaced last year.  There will be 700 feet of track and structure being replaced, and most of that from the ground up.
The Majestic Pavilion, once known as the Majestic Roller Rink, is under the first phase of its renovation. It includes updates to the building’s front, renovations to restrooms and work on a new kitchen. The second phase will continue next fall.
The park is closed for the season. It is scheduled to reopen on May 17.
