Splendid China - Abandoned Amusement

In Kissimmee Florida there was a Chinese themed scenery park named Splendid China that used replica miniatures of famous Chinese buildings and scenes. . It opened in 1993 but due to poor tourism and public protests about there inaccurate portray of Chinese history eventually closed the park in 2003. I didn't go in due to high security and a $500.00 fine, but it has been a popular place for skateboarders who like to tear it apart.

These pictures were taken Dec. 2008 and everything is what you can see from the outside, sometimes with zoom from the camera. ;)
