Miracle Strip Amusement Park, Panama, FL 1963 - 2004 In 2003 it was announced that the 2004 season would be Miracle Strip's last. The owner, Billy Lark, sold the land for use in development of condos. He cited a general lack of interest in the preceding years from tourists, loss of money and increased expenses in keeping the rides running. The final season ended in September 2004. Many rides have since been moved or disappeared. Abandoned Amusement, Abandoned Haunted, Miracle Strips, Billy Lark, September 2004, 1963, Amusement Parks, Strips Amusement, 2004 Seasons
