Abandoned Disney Park

I haven't seen this posted here yet, but it is certainly of interest. When I visited Disney World for the first time this summer, I had no idea that, somewhere nearby in the midst of all the bright shininess, was an abandoned park.

From the site: "River Country was Walt Disney World’s first waterpark. It opened in 1976, and closed for the final time in 2001. Since 2001, the area has sat virtually undisturbed. The slides and pools remain in place."

Coal Towns

I have been a lurker for a while now, so this is my first time posting. These pictures were taken about two years ago in the mountains of Virginia at an abandoned coal mine. My best friend grew up there and knew all the cool places, though most of them are closed to the public for safety reasons. These were taken from where we were able to go.

The abandoned shower house where the miners would go to get cleaned up after being underground and digging.

Gunkanjima - Battleship Island

When I first learnt about this island a few years back, I was determined to check out the place since then. Although it was a guided tour with access restricted to only a small part of the island (hence the limited views), the fact that I could set foot on it was good enough for me. :)
