Wild West World liquidating, Parks America not interested

A California amusement park operator, Parks America, broke off talks Friday to buy Wild West World, effectively ending the theme park’s brief run in Park City, north of Wichita. Parks America’s withdrawal kicked off the park’s liquidation. Ed Nazar, the Wichita attorney for the park, was preparing several motions for filing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court that would allow him to sell rides.

Is this the fastest demise of a park that actually got constructed? Paradise Lake lasted longer than this.

Wow, Wild West World (mid-2007 to mid-2007) thanks for the couple weeks of memories. :)

I would love to see Mark Shapiro pickup some of these rides for SFA as they are custom-tailored for the Southwest Territory.

Don't get BATWING FAN SFA drooling pre-maturely. :)

What a shame for this park. It never had a chance.
