P.S.: Wichita amusement park for sale on eBay

WICHITA — The city’s oldest amusement park is being advertised for sale on eBay, although prospective buyers can’t bid on it through the online auction site.

The sale price for the 40-acre Joyland Amusement Park, its equipment and rides is listed as $1.65 million, and the advertisement tells interested buyers to contact real estate company Occidental Management.

The park was built in 1949, and the listing says it has “an exclusive collection of vintage rides,” including a wooden roller coaster made by the Philadelphia Toboggan Co.

The eBay listing has attracted interest from a man who wanted to swap a $3.4 million yacht for the park, said one of Joyland’s owners, Margaret Nelson. She doesn’t expect the deal to work out.
