A change in indoor games of chance to skill-based redemption games sparks a declaratory action as to what is a “recognized amusement park” pursuant to N.J.A.C. 13:3-1(a).

July 1, 2018
Falls Group LLC v. Township of Mt. Laurel, 2011 N.J. Super. UnPub. LEXIS 62

While the Township of Mt. Laurel admitted that an entity known as “The Funplex” is an amusement park, it argued that a “recognized” amusement park meant an accepted one expressly declared to exist pursuant to N.J.A.C. 13:3-15 for purposes of licensing of amusement games. The court found that the “accepted” requirement is not within the definition of “recognized.” Also, there is ample basis to clearly establish that the Funplex is an amusement park and, therefore, is a “recognized” amusement park. It meets the criteria as a commercially-operated permanent business: open to the public at least 31 days consecutively, its acreage is designed and themed for participatory amusements incorporating rides or water slides, and has food and merchandise in permanent structures.
