Joyland could open by spring

Stanley and Margaret Nelson, the former and new owners of Joyland, say they hope to sell the park soon to a company that will restore the park to its former glory in time to open this spring. The Nelsons foreclosed on the park for $1,030,000.28.

Mamoosh's avatar Nice...I truly hope this happens. Joyland is a nice little park and Coaster is a real gem!

Excellent news. I'm hopeing to get to the park in the next year or two. I hope that with new management and park expansion, will come expanded weekday summertime hours.

Mamoosh's avatar I hope not! I'd like to see this park run by Dick Knoebels or Will Koch ;)

Mamoosh's avatar I'd suggest "Moosh's Joyland" but that already exists in Playa del Rey, CA ;)

Six Flags over Joyland? *shudders*

I'd sooner see Joyland & Wildwater Kingdom ;)

So if it was "Moosh's Joyland", then 'Coaster' would finally get a name, no?;)

kpjb's avatar The Joyland link above sends you to the site of Joyland in Texas. We're talking about the Joyland in Kansas, though, right?

Lets hope GAFP doesn't buy it. Imagine if they named it:
Wichita's Great and FAmous JoyLand!
that'd be: GAFPWGAFJ!
