Iowa’s largest amusement park, Adventureland, caught fire this afternoon around 4:30pm. The cause was determined to be from a collapsed ceiling in the park’s toy store. The collapse sparked an electrical fire.
The park is closed for the season so no one was hurt even as the blaze spread.
Firefighters from Altoona, Pleasant Hill, Ankeny and Johnston had contained the fire within two hours.
The Des Moines airport reported being able to see black smoke billowing from the direction of Adventureland even across the great distance.
Here is what the Main Street area is supposed to look like:

This is extremely unfortunate. I know it's not going to be easy to sort out the insurance and run the park with this much destruction, especially with opening so close at hand. That look like a really well done main street for the park. I hope they're able to re-build it as well as it looked and don't put in a bunch of fake-looking steel buildings.
