    There was once great joy to be had in Joyland… but no longer. Not with #21 lurking in there, holy shit

    I'm from Wichita too (and I apologize if someone said this already) but what makes it even more scary is that a maintenance worker was killed by the roller coaster. Decapitated when he was mowing or something under it; guess he looked up at the wrong time…creepy

    #1 As soon as the pictures are in black and white or sepia they look 10 times creepier!

  • Hostile

    As I live about 5 miles away from Joyland, and spent many-a-day there when I was younger what makes this place even creepier is:

    -A man was beheaded by the roller coaster while mowing the off-limits area.
    -3 unsolved arson fires
    -And the icing on the cake: the fucking animatronic clown that played the organ with it's psychotic grin and dead eyes.

    That fucking clown.

    Used to go there when I was kid. Thanks a bunch forr eminding me about that creepy organ clown. A memory I had repressed. Gonna have nightmares tonight. wasn't there a creepy sign at the top of the rollercoaster hill?

      Yeah, iirc it said something like "last warning". I remember riding in the last car and it would jump off the track every so often. That was the last time I rode that rickety thing. I remember it always looked like it needed paint and was about to fall down.

    I use to live in Wichita, KS, and I remember going to Joyland when I was little. Their haunted house use to scare the SHIT out of me all the time. Sad to hear that its gone. I would have loved to bring my son back to that place.
