Cypress Gardens to reopen March 28

From orlandosentinel.com:

Cypress Gardens, the small Winter Haven attraction built on botanical gardens and Southern Belles, has announced the new management that will reopen the shuttered park this spring.

Bill Sims, a long-time veteran of the Florida tourism industry, will manage the park, which is scheduled to open March 28.  Cypress Gardens closed in the fall, promising to reopen with a renewed focus on its historic gardens and a relatively new water park that has been popular with locals.   It is eliminating its carnival rides and roller coasters, as well as a zoo area.

He said Cypress Gardens will focus on quality and value – and will cut its ticket prices by about 40 percent.  The Park will also offer a separate, less expensive admission for people who just want to visit the gardens. 

As for the park’s furloughed workers, Sims said a portion of them will be recalled, although he could not offer a specific employment figure. Season pass holders will receive an extra four months beyond their expiration date, to make up for the months the park was closed, Sims said.
