The new owners of Maui Sands hope to have the indoor water park up and running within a year.
"We are going to evaluate what it is going to take to get this place into a working condition," said Kirit Parmar, president of Maryland-based MKSP LLC.
MKSP shelled out $2 million in an online auction to secure the winning bid for Maui Sands, the troubled water park at Ohio 2 and Milan Road. The company has tied up all the loose ends on the purchase, potentially opening a new era for the water park.
Parmar said his company has a number of employees who have worked in the hospitality industry, and he plans to capitalize on their skills as he sets out to reintroduce Maui Sands to Erie County tourists and residents.
