As New Jersey continues to reopen, my smile just gets bigger and bigger.

So keep smiling because this is another opening announcement!

The Keansburg Amusement Park is set for a partial reopening this upcoming Saturday, June 20th.

The amusement park's restaurants, food stands and boardwalk-style games will be open daily.

The park's food spots that will be open include: Pavilion, Nickerson’s, Heidelberg, Georgia's Lemonade, Glenda's Fries, Dippin' Dots, Coastal Ice cream, Barb's Burritos, Pizza V, Girardi's Kebobs, and CJ's Spot.

But you had to know that the Keansburg Amusement Park can't be as it has been in past summers because of the pandemic.

Unfortunately, the rides, arcade and Runaway Rapid waterpark will have to remain closed for now. Birth party packages are also on hold for now as well.

According to APP.com, here are the details regarding this Saturday's partial reopening:

  • Masks are recommended but not required for guests. All employees will be wearing masks, and food and beverage employees will be wearing gloves as well.
  • There will be what Mayes called “a heightened sanitation protocol,” with more frequent cleanings of bathrooms and attractions. Hand sanitizer stations will be set up throughout the park.
  • Employees will be required to complete a health check prior to each shift.
  • Outdoor dining tables, sufficiently spaced out, will be set up near the restaurants. Guests also are welcome to bring food purchased in the park onto the beach. No bar seating will be available, but in keeping with previous policy, guests are permitted to bring frozen drinks with them throughout the park.

Management of the amusement park have also hinted that they are hoping for a full reopening by 4th of July weekend but that means they need all hands on deck.

The park said that they have a dire need for new hires -- applicants must be at least 14 years old for a food/beverage position as well as games. Otherwise, the applicant must be at least 16 years old.
