Joyland Amusement Park is closing because of severe weather damage from Thursday night’s storm.
Although the park was only able to open back up last month after being closed due to COVID-19, park officials anticipate it will shut down for at least another two weeks to make repairs.
“The wind picked up around 80 to 100 miles per hour, and we took care of the people as best as we could,” Joyland owner David Dean said. “People started seeking shelter and all of that, and we were just trying our best to keep people safe by getting them off the rides.”
