So I thought I'd seek some out.
Deranged clowns, falling into decay. I think these guys were creepy when they were new.
This is what it looked like in 2005. These photos were found at lovethesepics.
The four photos above are from Koka Family Land in Japan. Photos by Olivier Malosse. Not the best collection of pictures I found, but I love the way nature is reclaiming this park. The overgrown rides look like something just begging to have their story told.
This is Nara Dreamland, again in Japan.
Spirited Away anyone? The clock towers on the last picture really remind me of that movie.
I thought it might be a challenge to find good pictures of abandoned theme parks when I decided to take Kimberlee's comment to heart last week. Turns out I actually had a harder time sorting through all the pictures than finding them. I could do another five posts like this one and still have more to explore.
Makes me want to travel to some of these places and check them out, though I understand the first and last ones are actively patrolled by security guards, so if you want to go on a photo safari, be stealthy.
