FORT MYERS, Fla. -- WINK News has confirmed the new owners of Zoomers Amusement Park have pushed back the opening date.

The amusement park near Fort Myers Beach has been under construction for months.

Owners say fixing the elevated go-kart track would have cost more than $500,000 so they decided to tear it down.

They now say they hope to open towards the beginning of June.
