New Roller Coaster Comes to Joyland

It's out with the old, in with the new at Lubbock's beloved amusement park.

Joyland Amusement Park is ditching the Mad Mouse (some remember it as the Mousetrap) ride in favor of something that's a little more familiar to Lubbock residents.

The new Sandstorm Coaster is arriving in Lubbock, piece by piece.

I love Joyland, and have gone for many years. But I am "that many" years old and couldn't handle the quick turns of the Mad Mouse anymore. I'm looking forward to a smoother ride on the Sandstorm.
