Amusement park opens


After a major renovation, the Starland amusement park on Route 53 reopened last week. Besides old attractions that have been refurbished – including miniature golf, go-karts, batting cages, laser tag, arcade games, and a climbing wall – additions include bumper cars and a zip line, scheduled to open this fall. Concessions will open next week.  A $16 million sports and recreation complex, opened in April, was built where the aging amusement park’s driving range once stood. “Everything is brand new, and we’re excited to be continuing 50 years of tradition,” said John Poirier, president of Starland Partners. “We’re getting great feedback from people. Many who came as kids and are now bringing their kids.”
