Joyland: An abandoned amusement park in Kansas.

Joyland: An abandoned amusement park in Kansas.
Joyland was once the largest theme park in central Kansas but today it remains abandoned and vandalised.
It opened in 1949 and it remained in continuous operation for 55 years, until 2004 when it shut down due to economical troubles and safety concerns.
The park had more than 24 amusement rides, a 1949 roller coaster, a miniature train (built between 1905 and 1910), and a Mammoth Military Band Organ (or Wurlitzer Style 160, built around 1905).
In 2006, maintenance works took place aiming to reopen the park again but this never happened.
Today, an organization is trying to raise funds in order to restore Joyland.
