Astroland Rides Come Off The Market...For Now!
Carol Hill Albert, whose family has operated Astroland since her late father-in-law, Dewey Albert, opened the park in 1962, said she still hopes to find a way to keep Astroland alive at some nearby location.
"I have been optimistic before, and things have not worked out,'' Albert said. "I guess I would say I'm an optimistic person.''
After listing 21 of Astroland's rides for sale earlier this year for about $2.4 million, she asked the dealer to pull all but the Top Spin 2.
"The seller has decided that they can't sell at this time because everything is too up in the air,'' said Tammy Nazarete, office manager at Somerville, New Jersey-based Rides-4-U Inc.
Sitt's proposed development isn't a done deal.
