Scenes From An Abandoned Theme Park


This abandoned theme park is decidedly creepy. First, despite its emptiness and the fence barring the entrance, several lights were on throughout--who is paying the electricity bill for this place, hm? Additionally, on the day of my visit (with a couple of friends) wind kept pushing branches against various structures making the most eerie noises. Definitely not a place I would visit at night, but incredibly interesting to enjoy in daylit hours. The biggest draw is the still-intact wooden roller coaster slowly being overtaken by nature. Some of the buildings look interesting, but with collapsed floorboards and sagging roofs a bit too unstable to venture inside (spookiest was the "Inferno House"). Everything is painted in the most delightful colors though--some buildings also featuring a variety of stripes and murals and stars for a very festive feel. Definitely one of those places where I just excitedly stop and take pictures and then have to run to catch up with my friends who have advanced into other corners of the park...

Outfit details:
UO bomber (old, similar here)

The last picture is pretty creepy! But I just love this place. There's a similar abandoned theme park in Germany that I've read about. It has these huge dinosaur statues that look super creepy and even an old wooden ferris wheel! I would love to visit the park one day, but it's strictly forbidden to go inside :( Anyway, I love your outfit. That dress is awesome! x

Okay. Now I'm so glad you shared more pics from this abandoned theme park. From your other post, it seemed like there wasn't much to see or photograph there. It looks like such a cool place! I would love to sneak into an abandoned theme park.

@Jhan, it's a different theme park. There wasn't anything at the other one.
