Adrenaline Family Entertainment Sells Alabama Adventure Theme Park

The Birmingham News reports that the Bessemer, AL, USA theme park (formerly Visionland) has been sold to General Attractions LLC, owned by Kent LeMaster, who previously operated the park as an asset of Southland Entertainment:

“‘With over 30 years of park and attractions experience among the principal operating team of General Attractions, we are very enthusiastic about the opportunity to acquire Alabama Adventure,’ Lemasters said in a statement.

“Lemasters said ‘our affiliated ownership of the surrounding 175 acres of real estate has allowed us to create a redevelopment vision for the property.  This purchase is a natural fit.’

“Russell Kuteman, president of Adrenaline, said ‘given our decision to exit the investment in Alabama Adventure, Kent and his team are the logical and ideal buyer group.'”
