Growing up in Eagle, my family and I used to visit Grand Junction quite often for things like shopping for clothes, school supplies, and occasionally just to have fun. One of the places we went to every now and then if we behaved was Fun Junction.

Centrally Located

Fun Junction was a cute little amusement park located in the area that is now occupied by Del Taco and Fun Junction liquors, right across from Walmart on North Avenue.

A Thing of the Past

Unfortunately, the popular Grand Junction amusement park was torn down and has been gone for a while. In fact, at one point a Hooters restaurant occupied some of the space once held by the amusement park and has now closed as well.

Fun to Reminisce

Although Fun Junction is no longer around, it is definitely a big part of my past and was once home to the first roller coaster I'd ever been on.

Take a virtual tour into the past and reminisce about what was once Grand Junction's own amusement park:
