Wannado City, a children’s role-play theme park, opened in 2004 at a cost of approximately $40 million. It was designed as a city for kids to play in interactive environments as police officers, reporters and doctors along with dozens of other careers.

Stampler said, “This absolute auction is unique as this is the only Wannado City that has been developed. Wannado City has chosen Stampler Auctions to maximize the return via the auction method of marketing. Don’t miss this opportunity.”

Stampler Auctions will sell all non-real property to the highest bidders on auction day. Four restaurants, a kiddie amusement park, a radio station, an operating circus inside the big top and a Spirit Airlines DC-9 fuselage will all be sold.

Lighting, sound equipment, speakers, props, costumes, lamp posts and rock climbing walls are only some of the additional assets to be put under the hammer. Servers, laptops, desktops, and hundreds of technology items will also be sold.

Stampler Auctions will conduct a sit-down theatre style auction in the Wannado City “Broadway Theater”. Inspection of the assets will be held on January 10, 2011 from 9am to 4pm and 8am to 10am on auction day.
