CENTENNIAL, Colo. (KDVR) — A popular indoor children’s amusement park in Centennial is closing its doors for good due to COVID-19.
But before it does, it wants to give you an opportunity to own a piece of its past.
Lollipop Park has been around since 2011, but its owners Nathan and Louise Elinoff have been operating amusement parks for close to four decades.
“Our world has changed, unfortunately,” said Nathan Elinoff.
COVID-19 has made it nearly impossible for an indoor business like Lollipop Park to operate.
“It’s a big challenge for any indoor business, whether it’s an office building, restaurant, amusement park like we have – even schools,” Nathan Elinoff added.
Because of this, the Elinoffs are going to transition from having an indoor amusement park to an outdoor one.
They actually had plans already to build a new park in 2021.
“It’s just really sad to see that gone right now but we’re really looking forward to bringing it back!” Louise Elinoff said.
In the meantime, the Elinoffs said they wouldn’t need any of the rides or attractions from their indoor amusement park – so they’re planning to auction them off.
“Everything goes!” said Nathan Elinoff.
Among the items to be auctioned:
- A 26-foot Italian made balloon Ferris wheel
- Rio Grande Train Ride
- Mini-Teacup Ride
- Mall Carousel
- Swing Ride
- Kiddie Whip Ride
- Antique Funhouse Mirrors
Together, everything would be worth about $900,000, according to Nathan Elinoff.
The auction is set for Oct. 21.
A preview inspection will take place at 9 a.m., followed by the auction itself at 10:30 a.m.
