Bankers hope sale of Wild West World land will put the fiasco behind them

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

Local banks that wrote millions of dollars in now-delinquent loans to Wild West World have pinned their hopes on the sale of the land and buildings at the bankrupt theme park as key to getting paid. J.P. Weigand & Sons Inc. is listing the property for $8.5 million, shopping it to amusement park interests around the country. The ground includes more than 70 acres and about a dozen buildings totaling 100,000 square feet.

Have all the rides been removed from Wild West World?
Not yet. This past week they were removing the Mouse ride on the northern side of the property. I think I remember seeing a log flume and a few more rides still up.

I guess i should have rephrased my question, meaning, are all the rides "sold and awaiting removal"?

I wouldn't think much of the Flume would go anywhere as it has concrete trenches.

The banks have nobody to blame but themselves.
