That's awesome!!! :clowny: (I am actually from NJ, but from the southern part. Used to go to Ocean City, Atlantic City, and Wildwood all the time.)


Up next is Chippewa Lake Amusement Park, in Medina, Ohio (paging Amanda Spayd, come in, Amanda). The park was built in 1924 and closed down after a fire in the late 1970s. It has since been taken back by nature and is now a crazy forest carnival.

So back in the 80's my dad took me and my brother to probably one of the most dangerous water parks in America.... Action Park, NJ aka Accident Park. So many stories on the web about people getting hurt.

These are after they redid the park safely and it became Mountain Creek.

There's an old Theme Park in the Netherlands that's abandoned too but I forgot it's name and I have no idea where it is :lol:. But I always find those kind of pictures really special. A lot of times they give me a creepy feeling and I feel like there could be an evil clown jumping out of the picture any time. But I also like them for that bit of creepyness.

These remind me of an abandoned merry-go-round I used to play on as a kid back in Maryland. And I still love them as an adult (almost said grown up, but I'm still working on that part).

Switching gears for a moment ... how 'bout an abandoned resort?

Located in San Zhi, Taiwan, the 'Pod City' was apparently intended to be a luxury vacation spot, but after a slew of tragic and fatal accidents during its construction, the project was abandoned. Locals say the area is now haunted by those who died in vain because they are not remembered ... they just linger there, unable to pass on.

It's amazing what you can find when you're not sleepy. I stumbled on this site by accident and love the design and content.

The guy who created the site (Henk van Rensbergen) has some pretty amazing pics and has even made a book.
