Golden, CO. – It isn’t every day you have the chance to purchase an Entire Theme Park. Well come Thursday October 25th some has the chance to do just that!

Heritage Square Amusement Park will be going up for public auction, and as the brochure says the “complete amusement park” can be all yours. There is one catch…..you have to have some extra space.  You see this auction is for ALL the contents of the park, but not the property it-self.

Times are changing

With the profitability of the park having been an increasing struggle, and the land owner calling in the lease on the property, Bader had no choice but to put the Heritage Amusement Park rides up for auction.
With Bader’s own children growing up at the park, and countless families visiting the “Gold Rush Town” themed attraction, it’s hopeful that thees rides are just moving on to the next  generations of young people.
So grab your check book (Do people still have those) and head on over to Golden Colorado, and you can have your very own theme park!
If you were able to open your own Theme Park, what would you call it?
Auction location: On site at the former Heritage Square Amusement Park at 18301 Colfax Ave. (RT 40), Golden, Colorado 80401
