If you're like some of us at News On 6, you remember heading out to Bell's Amusement Park at the Tulsa County Fairgrounds for fun, food and a ride on the Zingo. 

There's a parking lot where the amusement park once stood, but owner Robby Bell has long been planning to rebuild the park in another location, and a recent social media post has a lot of people talking.

We spoke to Bell, and he said plans are definite - it's happening, but he did not have a specific location for the park. He said it will be somewhere in northeast Oklahoma, and he hopes to have an announcement next month.

On the Bell's Amusement Park Facebook page, they posted that they are excited to bring the park back. An automated reply to requests for further information states:

"Thank you for your interest in Bell's. It is because of people like you that the memory of Bell's is alive and well. We are putting plans in motion to turn the lights to start making smiles, laughter, happiness into memories."

Add your comments below if you're ready to ride the Zingo once again. In the meantime, here are a couple of stories we've done in the past on Bell's.
