MONTICELLO, Ind. (WLFI) — Fun Spot America responded today to rumors that the company was considering buying the now closed Indiana Beach.

According to a statement posted on the company's Facebook page, Indiana Beach's purchase is not within the company's plans.

"During the past few days, for some, waiting for an answer may have seemed like an eternity. We saw a park with rich history and heritage, that has created memories for generations," the post said.  "Unfortunately purchasing Indiana Beach or any park is not in our current master plans. We are going to pray for the proper owners and operators to become visible so that Indiana Beach may continue to serve their guests and community for many more generations.

Indiana Beach has been a vacation spot for almost 100 years. Fans were surprised when the owners, Apex Parks, closed the beach suddenly last week.
