MIDWAY PARK FOR SALE
Wednesday, August 25, 2004 11:45 AM
For the low-low cost of $4.2 million, you can have the 16th oldest operating amusement park in the country. Located on the North end of Chautaqua Lake in the town of Maple Springs.
It's not TOO big of a park, but it is a nice 40 acre family park... it's more of a kiddie park with a few notable attractions.
So, think anyone will purchase this, or will all the rides just be sold of in auction? Again, they're all kiddie portable rides, so nothing worth noting... but sure would be a good investment considering it's got some potential.

It's on the most desirable end of the lake and has over 1,200 feet of shoreline," said Stephen J. Blake, a broker with CB Richard Ellis."

Hello oversized, overpriced, cheaply built cookie cutter McMansions. :(

Now all the area needs is a Wal-Mart and we can rename it "Paradise".

And then we can experience such rides as "coin operated space ship," "The Shopping Cart," and "Parking Lot Bumper Cars." Not to mention the wonderfully stocked gift shop specializing in cheap plastic crap with plenty of bored surely teenagers ready to help you find that perfect particle board roll top desk.

and, you can sleep for cheap in Walmarts parking lot because it will be 24 hrs...

Hey, I have a particle board roll-top desk! I bought it from an employee making $2.45 an hour.

Was the employee forced to deliver it in his/her own car while working off the clock?
Actually, I think you can sleep for free in Sprawl*Mart's parking lot as long as you BYOMH (bring your own motor home)

If you don't have a motor-home, but have a car you just don't feel like springing for a motel... will they let you sleep in your car?

Absolutely. I've done it a couple times on long road trips when I've needed a nap.

Made me think of that episode of "Married with Children" where the Bundys camped out in the frozen food section of their local grocery store. :)

LOL! That reminds me of when I was 17 and I spent 24 hours in a Meijer's in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Good times, good times.

I remember that episode! How I miss that show! TV needs that kind of "in your face, white trash" comedy. All these reality shows are getting on my nerves. Kinda like Wal-Mart ;)
