Joy Land is an amusement park in Wichita KS – or was. Truth to tell I’m not certain that the place was rebuilt. Some time in the 1980’s it was to be torn apart with a view to being rebuilt and I’d often wondered if they would find the bones of a man and his child when they did tear down the place.
The man was undergoing a divorce and the park was a popular place to take the involved kids on visitations.
Find the bones they did. The guy had taken the kid into a hill side among the bushes and shot him and then himself.
But like I said, rebuilding the joint was beyond my kin and I haven’t the interest to find out if it was rebuilt. I do remember the clown however, and as it was missing for only seven years I’ll assume the re-build was successful.
My daughter loved the go karts when we were exercising her visitation rights. Many years later she totaled her first vehicle just after receiving her driver license. Maybe I should have taken her there more than once.
Which clown, you say:
Joyland’s Louie the Clown found in sex offender’s home
