LINCOLN, NH - The Whale’s Tale Waterpark and Alpine Adventures, both in Lincoln, New Hampshire, have been acquired by Mark Bogosian and Jack Corbett through their companies New Hampshire Adventures Real Estate LLC, New Hampshire Waterpark Adventures LLC, and New Hampshire Alpine Adventures LLC.
The new owners of the two attractions have the same goals the original group had back in 1985. They want to provide an excellent adventure experience that will bring more visitors to the area and get them to stay longer and return more often. They hope to continue to deliver exceptional experiences for the Lincoln area visitors and serve as an amazing place to work for our local families. Under the new company, the new owners have worked hard to maintain the management team at both attractions. One of the new owners, Mark Bogosian, is the lead developer of the 360-acre South Peak Resort homeowner community at the base of Loon Mountain, and an owner of the Village Shops in Lincoln. This acquisition further demonstrates his commitment to making Lincoln the ultimate 4-season mountain resort. “We couldn't be more excited to continue with both Whale’s Tale Water Park and Alpine Adventure. The existing team is fantastic, and we look forward to working alongside them”, says Bogosian.
The Whale’s Tale Waterpark is one of the most award-winning waterparks in New England. It offers a variety of exhilarating rides and attractions appealing to all ages. Its sister company, Alpine Adventures, provides outdoor adventure options such as zip-lining, off-road, and side by side tours at its Main Street Lincoln location and its nearby, 300-acre Barron Mountain recreation area.
In 1985, a group of local investors, including several motel owners, purchased the Fantasy Farm attraction with the intent to grow it into a destination attraction that would bring more visitors to the area and give them a reason to stay longer and return more often. The Whale’s Tale Waterslide was built on the south end of the property in 1986, offering 4 waterslides. Two years later, the attraction became a waterpark with the addition of a wave pool, lazy river, and kiddie pool, along with changing rooms and expanded food service.
Since those early years, Fantasy Farm has closed, and the waterpark expanded with new rides, attractions, and amenities. The most recent addition of the Akua Beach Surf attraction expanded the customer base and further demonstrated that the Whale’s Tale is “New England’s Favorite Waterpark”.
The ownership group of the Whale’s Tale acquired Alpine Adventures in 2012, allowing the company to become a year-round attraction with expanded options for outdoor recreation. Alpine Adventures offers three zipline courses, an aerial adventure course, a unique off-road truck tour in 6-wheel Pinzgauer trucks, and snowshoe trekking. The newest adventure, a side-by-side guided tour allows guests to drive Teryx off-road vehicles through the company’s private 300-acre mountain sanctuary on Barron Mountain.
Under the long-term leadership of Jeb Boyd, CEO, and Matt Boyd, COO, the company has grown by adding unique, adventurous rides that appeal to a wide range of ages and abilities. According to Jeb Boyd, “I couldn’t be happier. Our former ownership team have been there for us for so many years and I am thankful for the opportunity to work with them. I think the values of the new ownership group align perfectly and as a team, we are excited to get to work with such a great new company. It’s a win, win!” The two leaders have built a team that is focused on safety, customer service, and fun, making both attractions a very desirable place to work. The Boyds and the entire management team intend to stay working at these attractions under the new ownership.
