According to a listing on Anchor Associates' retail real estate site, Mason's Beach Waterpark at 2590 Waterpark Drive is for sale. 

Yes, all 34 acres of this majestic water park are up for grabs, with the sales brochure listing highlights like the prime location at I-71 and Kings Mill Road in the "2nd fastest growing county in Ohio," its spot right across from Kings Island and also its traffic light. 

Coaster Nation ("your leading source for themed entertainment coverage") is speculating that the value is in the land, not the park, writing, "Even though the sale listing includes information and diagrams for the waterpark, the emphasis on traffic and nearby residential communities implies that this plot may be used for commercial development."

Currently owned by Adventure Landing, The Beach has been open since 1985 and was purchased by the company in 2012. They invested $6.5 million into the park (according to The Beach website) to renovate the "common areas, slides and play areas," as well as added attractions like Big Creek Beach and an arcade. 

The Beach is home to 22 water slides, live palm trees and a bunch of sand. 

The listing doesn't include a price, but Adventure Landing apparently bought the property for $3 million in 2012. 

Will it be turned into an apartment complex or McMansions? Or will it go the way of the gone-but-not-forgotten Surf Cincinnati?
