McCurdy Auction - Joyland Amusement Park | Absolute | 57 ± Acres

A new chapter for the former Joyland Amusement Park will begin this year as McCurdy Auction is set to auction the Wichita landmark November 7.

The 57 acre property, which served as a popular attraction for families for over five decades, will be sold at public absolute auction regardless of price.

“This is a familiar property, just about everyone has a favorite memory of Joyland,” Braden McCurdy, CEO and auctioneer of McCurdy Auction said. “This is a rare opportunity to acquire 57 acres with such strong visibility and accessibility.”

The Nelson Family is proud they were able to provide a place for good, quality entertainment for generations of families, but it is time for the next chapter.

The property offers a tremendous redevelopment opportunity with frontage along I-135, Southeast Blvd, Hillside Ave and surrounding city streets.

Opening in 1949, Joyland was once considered the largest amusement park of the southwest. The park permanently closed in 2006. Many of the iconic rides and attractions have been relocated or deconstructed.

“We are looking forward to seeing what the new owners will transform this Wichita legacy into,” McCurdy said.

The former park will be auctioned separate and together in two parcels – 42 and 15 acres. The auction will be conducted live on-site with the ability to bid online Wednesday, November 7 at 12 NOON CST.
