Still fun at Rehoboth seashore
Funland has always weathered the storm, literally.
The Fasnacht family of Pennsylvania was due to purchase the former Rehoboth Beach Sports Center March 15, 1962. On March 5, the Storm of 1962, the worst nor’easter in Delaware’s recorded history, hit the area, causing extensive inland flooding and damage throughout Sussex County, including the Rehoboth Boardwalk and the Sports Center.
That didn’t deter the Fasnachts, who worked out a deal to allow for damage and went ahead with the purchase. The rest is part of Rehoboth history, as Funland grew and became the family go-to place in the resort.
