Boomers' Go-Carts, Bumper Boats Won't be Sold

The go-carts, bumper boats and arcade games that for decades made Boomers in Dania Beach a family destination will be sent off to other entertainment centers owned by Boomers' parent company.

"We are dividing all assets and sending them to other properties," said Jessica Adams, spokeswoman for Palace Entertainment, which owns other Boomers in California and New York. "There will be no auction or sale or anything."

The Boomers in Boca Raton is owned by Apex Parks Group. Palace Entertainment sold it last fall, Adams said.

Boomers in Dania Beach had its last run Jan. 25. It shut down to make way for The Landings at Dania Beach, a new development that will include a shopping center, restaurants, a hotel and apartments.

Last year, developers paid $29 million for four parcels that include part of the Boomers complex. Aventura-based Master Development, the Kimco real estate investment trust and Salzman Real Estate Advisors are buying 100 acres to build the 1.3 million-square-foot Landings development.

"We had a great turnout on Sunday," Adams said. "It was bittersweet. We had a lot of people who grew up coming to the park who brought their kids to experience it for the last time."

The Dania Beach entertainment center opened in the 1970s under a different name, Adams said. Palace Entertainment bought it in the early 2000s and renamed it Boomers, she said.

Developers also plan to tear down the defunct Dania Beach Hurricane, a hard-to-miss wooden rollercoaster that sits next to Boomers.
