History[edit | edit source]
The park has been operated by the Codona family since 1969, however, rides at Aberdeen beach had existed for some time prior. The park is not the first amusements to operate in Aberdeen, a Switchback Railway operated on a separate site during the late 19th century.
The opening of the amusement park was delayed in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The park was opened on 15 July but was forced to close within a week, as the Scottish government had placed it in the same category as travelling funfairs which were not allowed to operate. Codona's stated that it had not received any guidance from the Scottish Government, which subsequently put out an apology. The park is now set to open on 29 August.
