Joyland Amusement Park Opens Saturday, Adds New Ride for 2008

This weekend, Joyland Amusement Park opens for the 2008 season, and announces a big surprise for the South Plains.

Joyland is very excited to announce they will begin construction of a brand new Super Shot Tower Drop ride that will tower over the park at a height of 140 feet. Riders will accelerate from the 140 foot height towards the ground at speeds of 50 miles per hour, insuring a thrilling experience for all.
