NAPLES, Fla.- The castle has been closed for months, but everything inside King Richard's Family Fun Park is now up for grabs in Naples.
A live auction started at 10:30 am on Thursday.
The park shut its doors after 20 years in Southwest Florida. Carnival rides, go carts and even popcorn machines were among the hundreds of items up for bid. Many of the folks showing up say they have memories at the park that can't be sold to the highest bidder.
"A local nice amusement park....we don't have many of them so it's sad to see, but going to see what is going on," said Garrett Drogue, Naples resident.
"You use to visit this place as a kid," asked reporter Julie Salomone.
"Yeah, spend a lot of time in batting cages and go carts, couldn't get me off the go carts."
The owner of the park tells Fox they decided to close cause it was time to move on and their kids are all grown up. The property has been sold and a car dealership will go up in place of the park.
