COLLINSVILLE, Ill. - A family attraction in Collinsville has closed it's doors for good.  Gateway Fun Park provided entertainment to the metro-east for more than 20 years.

The attraction opened in 1997 as Family Fun Tyme and was bought by the Reuther family and rebranded as Gateway Fun Park in 2000.
