I spent a little time on a small island off the coast of South Korea last year and found an abandoned fun park on top of a mountain. Fun times!

Someone left a whole bunch of keys in this room:

Someone stayed here at some point:

This is the room with electricity. But it has too much electricity. So, I don't know, you might want to wear a hat.

Let's go find some rides!

You must be THIS Korean to ride!

This was the only animal I saw in the entire fun park: a little crab. On top of a mountain.

Let's go for a ride on the rollercoaster!

Right down the bottom you can see the really narrow part of the track I had to walk along to get to this section. There was a 10m drop below the track down there, and I had to fight my way through overgrowth and spiderwebs to get through.

My main goal, however, was that tall triangular thing I'd seen from back in town: the Viking.

Looking back over the town from the top.

Edit: Since this seems to be really popular I'll post this link to my original LJ post which has a few more photos.

1. You are so brave to have climbed up so many hieghts to get these pictures.
2. It always breaks my heart to see broken down fun rides - especially the carousel//horses :(
3. Did you actually climb into that Dragon to take a picture? I would have been so scared the thing would have collapsed!
4. These pictures are amazing. One of my favourite sets so far.

Yeah, I actually climbed into the Viking boat ride before climbing to the top of the gantry. Sitting in the boat was even scarier than climbing to the top.

These are all incredible--I love abandoned amusement parks--but I especially salute you for those last few shots of the coaster and the Viking. Way above and beyond the call on those, and the results are amazing.

I would SO have loved to see that pool! (Though, I never could have climbed to the top like that!!)

Awesome shots. I love amusement parks, and always hate to see them fall into disrepair.

I love the abandoned amusement park pictures the very best. Thanks so much for sharing them.

Impressive that you climbed those rides! The height shots are exhilarating, though I imagine those climbs were scary.

OMG, I can't believe you climbed to the tops of those rides! O_O You're die-hard. :D These photos are great...the pool house creeps me out, though, just a tad... But the amusement park--wow!!! No other word to describe it!
