41 years of fun will become mere memories for thousands of customers and employees on Sunday, Sept. 5, when Panama City Beach's Miracle Strip Amusement Park closes. It will make way for new development that is changing this Florida Panhandle beach town from a blue-collar getaway into a more upscale destination. High-rise condominiums are replacing low-end motels up and down the tourist strip from the park.

Damn Shame its closing! Who knows, by the way the article sounds, I wonder if it will possibly turn into another Belmont Part with retail and rides. That would be gravy.
I really REALLY doubt that anything will remain of MSAP save those rides that are bought and relocated. So much of that park just screams "beachside amusements"....
Jan 30, 2005, whatever's not sold will likely be demolished...:(
"Some of the 32 rides have been sold to buyers in Argentina, Mexico and Chattanooga, Tenn." Go Lake Winnie! Wonder what they bought. Starliner would turn Cannon Ball into a cool racer since their layouts are almost identical..
How do you think this weather will affect the last day on Sunday the 5th?
