TULSA, Oklahoma – A long-time Tulsa landmark is slated to make a comeback next month. Robby Bell announced that he will be carrying on the family tradition and will be resurrecting Bells Amusement Park.

The comeback will begin outside the Saturday Flea Market near 51st Street and 57th West Avenue in about three weeks, Bell said.

"My grandfather started with six rides in 1951 at the fairgrounds. They were all kiddie rides that he bought, and we're gonna start all over again 60 years later at Mr. Schwickerath's property," he said.

Jeff Schwickerath owns the flea market and said he's excited to bring a family-oriented experience to West Tulsa.

"I always had season passes to Bells when we were young people, and we wanted to see it stay in the Tulsa area," he said.

Bell said he has been looking for a new home ever since Bells lost its lease at the Tulsa Fairgrounds in 2006.

He said the attraction will start small with just three or four rides outside the flea market. He said he hopes to expand in the not-too-distant future.
