Joyland Amusement Park (Texas) Closing [Update, Park Not Closing]


Recommended Posts



It's always sad to see any amusement park close. This was the park that bought Greezed Lightnin' from Astroworld but never installed it.


It is with mixed emotions for us to announce that Joyland will not be reopening.
If an interested party with a viable offer is not found by October 1, Joyland will be auctioned on Oct 27 2022.
We have been blessed with 50 years of wonderful memories, fabulous employees and amazing guests who have all touched our lives.
The threat of flooding in Mackenzie Park, struggling labor fulfillment, continued vandalism in the park and our aging bodies are all contributing factors to this decision.
We would like to thank ALL of our Team through years who have helped to keep Joyland a safe and enjoyable place to visit.
Never forget the importance of having fun…for the greatest legacies we can leave are happy memories.             The Dean Family                   1973-2022
