KYOTO | Abandonned Amusement Park

Interesting photos, but sadly no information on the location (although the right hand drive car might give some clues).

Wow, amazing pictures. I would hate to be in that place at dusk or night that would give me the creeps, it looks creepy in the daytime!

I seem to remember seeing those pictures once before... I want to say that abandoned amusement park is in Japan, but I just can't remember.

Neat stuff. I'm pretty sure this is in Japan too.

Looks like something out of Final Destination 3 or Silent Hill 3. Pretty cool.

I love this kind of stuff! Really is amazing to see it still intact to some degree. Almost as if they just didn't open and left it as is one day. I must say, the quality of the photos is quite refreshing as well. In many cases like this, the pictures are of questionable quailty. That certainly isn't the case here.

As a huge theme park fanatic, it always pains me to see coasters in such a shape. Thanks for the link, though.

And, for the record, that is a Japanese park, if I remember correctly, but I cannot think of where it is.

Crazy pictures! Why did they let all rides got rotten and not try to sell them at the time of park closure? Why has noone overtaken the park?

I think the story of this parque will be surely interesting!

Really? I'd think with the high value of land there, this would've been snapped up long ago....

I think you are correct on the park's identity. However, that website is actually for another park (View Land). This website has a shot of Castle Land. http://fushimi.star.gs/htmle/momojoue.htm

That's pretty cool. There are a lot of interesting photo collections on that website, too.

Wow, beautiful. A very apocalyptic feel.

I get dizzy just thinking about climbing that roller coaster.
