Miracle Strip Park

Tropical Storm Frances' arrival coincided with the closing of a landmark in Northwest Florida.

Prior to the storm moving in, Miracle Strip Amusement Park closed for good.

For 41-years, children of all ages enjoyed one of the largest roller coasters.

Prior to Disney World opening in the early 1970's, Miracle Strip and Six Flags over Georgia were the largest amusement parks in the Southeast.

For General Manager Buddy Wilkes, it's sad to say goodbye to the more than two hundred seasonal employees. High-rise condominiums will soon be built on the park's 20-acre site across the beach. A land value worth millions of dollars.
