Guests are welcomed in with new grand entrance, bars  

The Wheelhouse Bar

In addition to signing /opening 12 new tenants in 12 months such as Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips and Blake Shelton’s Ole Red, ICON Park has been busy with its own renovation projects. 

The Wheelhouse, the center of energy at ICON Park where guests board The Wheel and experience more attractions, great food and drinks, games and fun, is completely remodeled. This started with tearing down the building’s front walls to create a brand-new grand entrance that includes retractable glass panels. 

The new design provides perfect synergy between ICON Park’s open-air spaces and the complex’s central building. The minute guests walk through the large doors, their adventure begins. 

As many of you know, this past Spring I started taking care of my body.  Like really taking care of my body.  I began yoga, meditation, daily walking and acupuncture.  I also began eating a gluten-free diet based on a recommendation from my naturopathic doctor.  I have lost 13 pounds -- but more importantly, I feel better than I ever felt in my life!

I also began paying attention to what I was putting in my body in terms of organic foods and quality vitamins & supplements.  When I was presented with the opportunity to try Tru Niagen®, a unique form of vitamin B3 proven to reduce the impact of aging and daily cellular wear & tear, I did my research and jumped at the chance!

Hocus Pocus first premiered 28 years ago in the golden age of ’90s cinema, and has since achieved cult-classic fame with both children and adults as a loyal fanbase. Fans fall in love with the delightful, demonic and diva-esque Sanderson Sisters and the sleepy New England town they torment.

Now as you plan your annual viewing of the family favorite flick, you can also conjure up your own spooky treats and bewitching drinks to celebrate Halloween.
