Buccaneer Bay Water Park Reopens

waterpark1 Eight years after Hurricane Katrina destroyed much of the US Gulf Coast, residents in Mississippi are getting back one of their most popular landmarks — and just in time for summer.

The Buccaneer Bay Water Park is making waves again after its re-opening this week–after a five-million dollar restoration. Mississippi’s director of state parks says the park brought in over one-million dollars a year before damage from Katrina forced it to shut down. waterpark2

Local restaurants and businesses are also hoping to get a boost from visitors to the park. The park draws visitors state-wide as well as from neighboring Alabama and Louisiana.
