Here's to looking at the future. Hope they can pull it off, I'd like to visit parks like this more often. Here in Southwestern-Ohio we only have Stricker's Grove left, and we onlt get to enjoy them 2-3 days a year.

Not profitable? I've been following the story for a while now, and now that I've seen these pics I know for sure there was a whole lot of funny business going on with kicking Bell's out of there.

I wish Robby Bell and all the others involved with the park the best of luck in re-locating.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Sorry if I maybe a wrong, but is Bell's moving to the Tula Fairgrounds, because I see the skyride that they have in the side of the last picture.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

Yeah, last I heard, that was the best bet so far, but we'll probably have to wait till they get down moving things out of the old location before we hear much about the new one.

Ah, no, that was the larger sky ride that Bell's sold to the fair ground. Bell's actually owned two sky rides: one cut through the centre of the park and the other glided down the fair midway. The latter was much larger and only operated during the fair. It was the sky ride sold for $600,000 to the fair recently.

It look pretty nice park, hopefully they DO relocate and improve the quality from what they have. Then I would probably head out that way! :-) Sadly I miss this park before it goes "KaBoom!"

Thanks for the post!

And yes... I LOVE DONKEY!

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

I think that if they relocate they should do it up, and if it does well they can rub it in the faces of the fair board!

It was doing very well where it was. And now Tulsa is going to lose a lot of money from this.

Now Sand Springs will have a good thing to do now.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Nice pictures. Looks like it wasn’t that bad of a place, it’s a shame that is closing

Ah, wow, thanks for the pictures.

I don't think I ever really appreciated how good Zingo looked before I heard that it might be demolished. Man am I glad it's going to survive.
