Wild West World was owned, developed and operated by Thomas and Cheryl Etheredge. The announcement for the park appeared in the Wichita Eagle on December 19, 2004. Groundbreaking for the development began on August 15, 2005. It was billed as the only all-western theme park in the world, and the first major one in Kansas. On July 9, 2007, barely two months after the park opened, the owners filed for bankruptcy and closed it down. They cited lagging attendance and bad weather as the main factors for the decision, but experts also point to an inadequate business plan and a poor theming choice. [WikiPedia]

As of February, 2014, only the Johnny Western Theater and Maintenance/Warehouse buildings remain as well as the railroad station canopy and log flume ride.
