Some of the parks shown in this section were not amusement parks, but part of
the surge of roadside attractions that started in the 1950's, and finally faded towards the end of the 1960's. Arkansas had
many of these little Mom & Pop operations, most were built by the owners.
The pictures of Hurrah City, Dinosaur World, and Arkla Village were taken by
Eddie Dean who traveled Arkansas from the 1940's to the late 1960's takeing pictures of everything, and anything. The pictures
are courtesy of the Arkansas Historical Commision.
The park was owned by the same people who owned Magic Springs Amusement
Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas(pre-1995). These pictures show a few of the signs still at the park in 2003. Signs are usually
overlooked as part of a parks history. Thats what caught my eye when it came to Sonic Atrophys' great pictures.
