Earlier this week, we reported that the owners of Six Flags Great Escape might be interested in purchasing Hoffman’s Playland – thus saving the historic landmark. We have now learned that is not the case afterall.

Hoffman’s owner David Hoffman told NEWS 10:

We’re excited about it because they have infrastructure and expertise to run operation like ours.

Well, earlier this week David met with officials from Great Escape to talk about a possible purchase and it was announced on Thursday that a purchase would not be made.

Great Escape made the following statement:

We recognize the historical significance of Hoffman’s Playland to families in the Capital Region; however, we are not pursuing the purchase and/or operation of this property.

This still leaves the future of Hoffman’s in question with the owners saying back in June that they would close down when they retire.
