8 eerie, abandoned amusement parks: Take a ride ... or not
I went to one called Nara Dreamland in Japan, it was very creepy
I remember when they closed playland at the beach in San Francisco. and how sad that was for so many people. It's creepy to see rides that were so much fun just left to decay Like a scene from a nightmare .
you should get the guy's from american pickers they would luv these parks and put them back together 1 way or another!!!!!!!
Another great website, which features ruins of Japan: http://www.michaeljohngrist.com/
He has some really amazing photos of ruins unlike any other.
How can the writer leave out the mother of all creepy abandoned theme parks, NARA DREAMLAND, built in Japan after Disneyland (Walt tried to sue!), closed down and now ultra creepy as seen in these pics!http://www.themeparkreview.com/japan2004/nara1.htm
another great one is holy land USA in connecticut, an abandoned 1950s religious theme park. here's a link to some great photos taken not too long ago: http://preview.tinyurl.com/3j33x78
it's a no trespassing area, but you can try to gain access permission from the order of nuns who own the property.
