Wild West World Sold Again!

Wild West World, the defunct theme park in Kansas, has been purchased in another bankruptcy auction by AHG Group, LLC. The previous owner, Amusement Holdings, failed to close on the property by May 30th so it went up for bid again.

The new owners, who are an investment company, already are planning on getting the park reopened as quickly as possible, not even ruling out reopening this summer.

The company is said to be in talks with a possible amusement operator for getting the place back open, but declined to say who the operator would be yet.

Here's hoping that the new owners actually follow through. Unlike the previous buyer these guys certainly have the cash on hand to get the place open! This is turning into another soap opera story - I just hope one with a happy ending.
