SAUK COUNTY (WKOW) -- The Lake Delton amusement park where a Florida girl was badly injured in a fall from a thrill ride went to foreclosure auction in Sauk County Tuesday morning.

According to the Sauk County Sheriff's Department, the property, listed under Extreme World Inc., Anderson Amusements LLC, and Big Chief Enterprises was not sold.

The amount owed on the property is $2,742,973.  The buyer would also be responsible for back taxes, which total $85,198.50 including penalties.

Since there were no bidders, the property now goes back to the bank, which is listed as Bank of Wisconsin Dells.

Teagan Marti of Parkland, Florida was critically injured July 30 when the operator of the Terminal Velocity ride allowed her to free fall nearly 100 feet to the ground without the net in place.  Marti survived, but may never be able to walk again. 

The foreclosure proceedings were underway several months before the accident.

According to Extreme World's web site, the park is closed for the season.
