These are the Dreamlands of the past... Dreamland was an ambitious amusement park at Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York City from 1904 to 1911. It was the last, and considered the grandest, of the three original iconic large parks built on Coney Island, the other two being Steeplechase Park and Luna Park. Coney Island Dreamland

Nara Dreamland: Abandoned Theme Park - Japan after Hiroshima



Nara Dreamland is an abandoned theme park in Nara, Japan. It closed its doors in 2006, due to falling visitor numbers.

Today, visitors need to climb over two barbed wire fences and hide from the security guard if they want to avoid a fine. It's fun!

I love stuff like this. One of these days we will find something to check out. Sadly, all our theme parks are either in use or get torn down to make way for something else before they can be truly called abandoned.

The Margate Dreamland has actually started being restored after years of abandoment now! The financial future is a bit shaky though.

That would be really interesting, but it will never happen.
