ADOPTS FAMILY NAME
Name Change, New Rides and
Season Pass Program Part of 2001 Plans
In a lasting tribute to their parents and to build brand identity with their
famous spaghetti sauce, the seven DelGrosso sons and daughters announced
today they are changing the name of their popular Tipton, PA amusement park.
Effective immediately, DelGrossos Amusement Park will replace Blands
Park. As the family gathered today to make the announcement, crews were
busy outside changing park signs to reflect the new name.
Family spokesperson, Joe DelGrosso, said
the name change was made for a variety of reasons. My mother and late
father worked for half-a-century setting the standards we strive for everyday.
They gave a large portion of their lives making sure this Park is always
safe, clean and affordable for every guest. DelGrossos Amusement Park
is their legacy and it deserves their name.
DelGrosso also announced the first of
many co-marketing projects between DelGrossos Amusement Park and DelGrosso
Spaghetti Sauce. Distribution of specially marked jars of DelGrosso
Spaghetti Sauce will carry coupons for up to $4.00 off the purchase of any
pass at DelGrossos Amusement Park. These coupons will be valid any
Tuesday through Friday all summer long.
This gives us the ability to distribute
over four million coupons in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, West Virginia
and New York. If they like our sauce, we think they will love DelGrossos
Amusement Park and everything there is to see and do here in Central Pennsylvania,
For the first time in history, a
season pass will be available for the newly named Park. Beginning on
November 10th, the public will be able to purchase a season pass that
will be good for unlimited Waterworks, Rapids and Ridesall-day,
any day the Park is open during the season.
