Wichita's Joyland Amusement Park for Sale Again

By  | 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The owners of Wichita's historic Joyland Amusement Park have again put the attraction up for sale after several failed attempts to reopen the park.

Longtime owners Margaret and Stan Nelson are trying to sell the park for at least $2 million.

The theme park has been closed since 2006 as two other groups tried unsuccessfully to take over and keep it going.

The Nelsons now have control of the park again and are trying one more to sell it. This time, Margaret Nelson says, the couple wants cash _ no leasing or holding the note.

However, she says she and her husband will consider proposals to do something else with the land, such as build a corporate headquarters or another kind of park.

The park opened in 1949.
