Creepy Pictures of Abandoned Amusement Parks

Updated June 14, 2019 175.0k views26 items

Amusement parks are usually full of bright colors and exciting sounds. People scream on roller coasters and kids chow down on sugary treats while their parents try to keep them under control. Or at least that's how it usually works. The thing is, there are a lot of creepy abandoned amusement parks out there too.

Running a theme park isn't an easy thing to do. Thanks to the dangers and high costs of maintenance, many amusement parks become abandoned and are left for dead. The rides begin to rust and the attractions and statues start to decay. The result is hundreds of wonderfully creepy abandoned theme parks around the globe.

Many of the abandoned parks get torn down or simply forgotten over time. Luckily, there are plenty of photographers and urban explorers out there who absolutely love to photograph abandoned places. That means there are tons of creepy pictures of amusement parks we can all enjoy from the safety and comfort of our computer screens.
