Joyland Amusement Park to reopen after recent flood

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Joyland Amusement Park announced today that the clean up and safety inspections have been completed and they will be reopening Thursday, July 8th at 7 p.m.

Joyland is open through the summer weekdays 7-10 p.m. and weekends 2-10 p.m. The flood caused them to close temporarily for repairs.

David Dean, whose family has owned the amusement park since the early 1970's, was very pleased with the record speed at which crews were able to restore the park to pristine condition. "We got a break with weather to allow us to clean the park ," says Dean, "all the rides are ready and we are on schedule to open tomorrow night."

A meet and greet with Marvel Comic's Iron Man this Saturday, July 10th, 2-8 p.m.
