I have heard of it. But I cannot think of one clear minded person who would buy a million dollar piece of property over the internet. Makes no sense.

Sounds like it's really a piece of land with bunch of run down buildings and the remains of one or two rides. It's definately not an amusement park anymore, just the site where one was.

I visited that park when I was really young, maybe six or seven. I rode my first Toboggan there. Don't really remember much else about it, just a lot of western type buildings and such.

Well I don't think anyone will want to pay $1,000,000 for the park land everything in that park has been vacant for about 8 or so years. The only thing thats usefull is the land its on. Almost everything needs to be replaced or rebuilt. They're still a few rides left there they may be able to run if you fix it up. I went by the park over the summer and I saw it was so much in disrepair. I visited this park in 1989 its seems nice for a small park but fell victim to SDC. The campground I stayed at was shut down due to the fact the park went. All I can say is what I saw this summer was a very sad site.

This site has photos of a recent visit to the remains of the park and a link to a nice history of it. I remember seeing ads for it in the 70's when we went to Branson, but never made it down there.

I've heard of it. All I know is that it was in Arkansas and had a mad mouse which was sold to another park and a tobaggan ride.
