Tulsa Company to Buy Kansas Theme Park $2 Million

Tulsa-based Spectacular Attractions dba Murphy Brothers Exposition, has signed a $2 million contract to buy the $30 million Wild West World theme park out of bankruptcy. Spectacular Attractions plans to reopen the park later this year.
The Park City, Kansas park opened on May 5 and closed on July 9, 2007. It is located on 130 acres along Interstate 135.
Wild West World was owned, developed and operated by Thomas Etheredge dba Wild West World LLC. and Restoration Farms Inc.
Groundbreaking for the park took place on August 15, 2005. The park was billed as the only all-western theme park in the world, and the first major theme park in Kansas.
The sale is scheduled to close May 31, although other bidders will have until May 8 to top the Spectacular Attractions’ offer.
The purchase, along with $4.2 million for 35 rides to re-open the park, will be financed by industrial revenue bonds from the city of Park City.
Murphy Brothers operates several mobile carnival rides at state fairs including the Tulsa State Fair.
