With a tip of our hat to BoingBoing from whence many of these links originated, enjoy the mysterious beauty of abandoned amusement parks from around the world…


Eerie images from the lost amusement park in New Orleans here.


The beautiful decay of River Country, Walt Disney World’s first waterpark. It opened in 1976, and closed  in 2001. All the attractions remain in place, slowly being overtaken by nature and neglect… here.


Berlin’s answer to the creepy and wonderfully abandoned amusement park here.




Gorgeous photos of an abandoned park in northern Japan, here.


And last but not least, the incredible and abandoned cheap Japanese Disney knock off – Nara Dreamland! (Here too.)
