WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The new owner of the defunct Wild West
World amusement park near Wichita says its plans for the area could
include a tribal casino.

AHG Group, a development company from Florida, bought Wild West
World Wednesday with a $2.15 million bid in U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
The deal is tentatively set to close June 30.

The Western-themed amusement park opened in May last year and closed two months later.

AHG is owned by Alan Ginsburg, who has been active in the American Indian gaming boom across the country.

The 10-acre amusement park site in Park City is close to land the Wyandotte Nation of Oklahoma owns. The Wyandotte Nation already
operates a casino in downtown Kansas City, Kan.
