The Roller Coaster at the Abandoned Joyland Amusement Park, Wichita, Kansas

The Roller Coaster at Joyland is a fun looking out and back coaster that follows a creek that runs through the park before making a dog leg turn out into the field that was used as Joyland's parking lot.

Art is in the eye of the beholder and I see coasters, even static ones like Joyland's Roller Coaster as a powerful work of art.

With no maintenance and no grounds keeping Joyland's Roller Coaster is slowly becoming one with the prarie.

Weeds cover the lower parts of the track while ivy uses Roller Coaster as a giant trellis.

I do enjoy taking really beautiful photos of coasters and Joyland's Roller Coaster gave me many opportunities for great photos.
