The Cleveland-Sandusky Jellystone Park location will open its new Wibit floating obstacle course on Friday

The water features just keep getting better at Jellystone Park Camp-Resort locations in Ohio.

The Cleveland Sandusky Jellystone Park in Nova opens its new Wibit floating obstacle course on Friday, June 19.

“We can’t wait to hear the laughter and screams as kids try it out,” said Pamela McCreary, who co-owns and operates the park with her husband, Todd.

The Cleveland Sandusky Jellystone is the third Jellystone Park in Ohio to offer a Wibit. The others are located at the Jellystone Park locations in Akron and in Mt. Gilead.

“Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts have the reputation of having some of the best water zones in the campground industry and our franchisees in Ohio are continuing to build on that reputation,” said Trent Hershenson, vice president of marketing for Leisure Systems, Inc. (LSI), which franchises more than 75 Jellystone Park locations across the U.S. and Canada.

Water features at all five Jellystone Park locations in Ohio are now open for the summer camping season following the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions that were in place earlier this year, prompting a surge in business at Jellystone Park locations across the state.

“Business is booming,” said Nancy Felber, who co-owns and operates the Jellystone Park location in Mt. Gilead with her husband, Richard. “The phone has been absolutely ringing off the hook.”
