By | May 26, 2023

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Five Star Parks & Attractions, one of the leading owners and operators of family entertainment centers in the country, proudly announces its recent acquisition of two Fun Land locations in Northern Virginia. This strategic move marks an exciting milestone in Five Star Parks’ expansion into the vibrant Virginia market. This acquisition comes on the heels of Five Star Parks’ recent purchase of Scene75 Entertainment earlier this month. Fun Land expands the company’s portfolio to 27 locations in 13 states.

“The acquisition of Fun Land furthers Five Star Parks’ impressive growth in the attractions industry,” said Joseph Silvestri, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Court Square Capital Partners. “This is a great fit for us and marks new territory as we expand into Virginia.”

“We are so excited to welcome Fun Land into the Five Star Parks family,” said John Dunlap, CEO of Five Star Parks & Attractions. “Fun Land is known for delivering exceptional experiences and we are thrilled to build upon that foundation.”

Fun Land has been a staple of Fredericksburg for more than two decades, delighting generations of families. In 2020, a new location opened in Fairfax County and has quickly emerged as a local favorite. Both locations feature Tailgater’s Sports Grill restaurant offering great food, drinks, and fun to foodies of all ages.

The Five Star Parks & Attractions portfolio includes the Track Family Fun Parks, Adventure Ziplines, and Xtreme Racing in Branson, Missouri; LazerPort Fun Center, SpeedZone, and Xtreme Racing in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee; Celebration Station with locations in Florida, Louisiana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Texas; Craig’s Cruisers with three locations in Michigan; Malibu Jack’s indoor theme parks with locations in Indiana and Kentucky and Scene75 with five locations in Illinois and Ohio.
