This amusement park was abandoned since Katrina Hurricane struck the city in 2005. This hurricane flooded the entire amusement park, since it was located on a low lying section of New Orleans. The flood still remained for over a month, since then, the park was later closed indefinitely with no plans to reopen in the future, and creepy roller coasters are left to sit and haunts the area of New Orleans. This amusement park was the same amusement park that was used to filmed Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters
It originally opened in 1973, but closed a few years later. It didn't reopen until 1986 and ran until 1999 until it was permanently shut down. The reason for the first closure was because of a few deaths from the roller coaster accident, and the economy took a downturn and unable to complete and was left to sit. As you can see the area have been dense with trees and covered with a dense fog. There were lots of photographs of this park, but not so much of an information about the mystery of the park.
Back in the 50’s, John Baptist Greco, planned a theme park for God. So this theme park was built to a replica of Bethlehem with other holy sites mingled in. The park was closed for renovations in 1984. In 1986 Greco died before the work itself could be finished. The park was took over by a group of nuns but never again reopened to the public. This is the site that I highly recommend you not to visit because back in 2010, Holy Land was the site of a horrific crime with the murder and rape of a 16 year old girl, and it still remain as an unsafe place ever since.
This amusement park was left unfinished and so it was abandoned. It was originally planned to be the largest amusement park in Asia, but the construction was stopped in 1998. There was an attempt to restart the construction back in 2008, but it failed. Farmers have now reclaimed the area by planting crops and digging wells in the spooky shadow of the half-dreamed wonderland castle.
This park was closed and abandoned in 1999 because the duck themed rollercoaster killed a child in the late 1990s and another one in 1999. Nobody from the park’s leaders have apologized or said anything to the family of the victims and the people. The cart from which the child fell down was also left in place.
For those of you who didn't know anything about the Chernobyl disaster here's a little information for you, on April 26th 1986,the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant exploded and fire released large quantities of radioactive particles into the atmosphere. A few hours of the explosion dozens of people fell ill. After that the town was immediately evacuated, people are not allowed to bring their belongings with them, so it still remain on the abandoned apartments and remain contaminated. The park was planned to be opened on May 1st 1986, but was only open for a couple of hours on April 26th 1986 as an entertainment for those preparing to evacuate the Ukrainian city following the Chernobyl disaster that happened on April 26th. Festive decorations still linger near the haunting rides, the looming yellow ferris wheel has become an icon of the nuclear disaster, and sometimes, visitors leave stuffed animals in its cars as a memorial. this abandoned city and amusement park was featured in a 2012 horror movie "Chernobyl Diaries" where a group of teens went to the city with an extreme tour guide, and got stucked in the city, and.... well, die.
This amusement park was constructed in 1969 and was originally called Kulturpark Planterwald. It was one of the most hit amusement park in Germany and was filled with attractions and giant animals statues. In 1991 it was taken over by one Norbert Witte and renamed Spreepark, operating until 2002, when it closed in debt and Witte was found to be using ride parts to smuggle cocaine.
It operated from 1878 through 1978, after the final owner, Continental Business Enterprises closed it due to lack of attendance. After the park's closure, its rides and structures were left largely untouched and un-maintained for over 30 years and plants such as huge trees have been growing through rides like the coaster and the ferris wheel. The park closed rather secretly without any big media coverage or massive public outcry. When the park shut down, former owner Parker Beach requested to his family that he be buried there when he died, which was accepted by his family. The site where Beach's body is buried in the park is unknown. In the 2007 documentary, "Welcome Back Riders", at the very end, it said Be respectful if you try to find Parker Beach's Grave. Let him enjoy his park in peace. ...It's by the roller coaster.
