After unexpectedly closing two weekends ago, Wild West City in Byram has reopened and asserts they'll be operating all summer. Dan Hirshberg gave NJ.com a statement on behalf of the park that read:
“Wild West City will continue the tradition of the Wild West in New Jersey. The park is now open daily for the season operating as the tri-state area’s premier western theme park. The ongoing support for the park has been nothing short of amazing and is greatly appreciated.”
Fans of Wild West City were upset when news of the parks closure spread online. The park's principal owner, Michael Stabile Jr., died seven months ago and according to the New Jersey Herald, anyone that arrived at the park on Sunday, June 9 was handed a flyer that said the estate of Michael Stabile Jr. had closed the park. It also said that there were numerous failed attempts to transfer the park into an entity that could continue to operate it and keep it in the Stabile-Benson Family.
Luckily it looks like the park's owners have sorted everything out and Wild West City will continue to bring joy to families for the foreseeable future.
