GOLDEN, Colo. — All of the rides and items inside Heritage Square Amusement Park were auctioned off Thursday.
The theme park in Golden closed in June after being open since 1971. Its owners said the park struggled financially.
Hundreds of items, including the rides from the park were available at the auction. Arcade games, go-kart fleets, bumper boats, a zip line, swan paddle boats, restaurant equipment, tables and benches were also up for grabs.
A 1963 Tilt A Whirl ride, 1966 Eli Scrambler and 1977 Eli Ferris Wheel were among the items up for auction.
Most of the equipment is typically purchased by other amusement attractions at auctions, but people outside of the industry often buy smaller items as memorabilia.
Buyers can remove bought items up to 5 p.m. Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday. Buyers of larger items will be given additional time for removal.
All items must be removed by Nov. 13.
