How 10 Theme parks look after years of abandonment
Theme parks are where people go to spend some lovely time with their family and especially the young ones. Amusement parks have a fixed location and usually provide attractions meant to gratify to certain age groups, as well as some that are aimed towards all ages.
Some of the major theme parks in the world are Disney World, Disney land, Universal Studios, Disney World Hong Kong. But not all theme parks are as successful as the ones mentioned above. Most of the theme parks close down due to financial difficulties involving the upkeep of the park and staff payments.
Now most of the closed theme parks either sell their assets to someone else, who demolishes the park and builds something else, or some theme park remain frozen in a time capsule and are left standing to rot on their own.
Here are how 10 such abandoned theme parks look now after many years.
1 Wizard of Oz Theme Park – Beech Mountain, North Carolina
The Land of Oz is a now-closed amusement park located in Beech Mountain, North Carolina, USA. It was opened in 1970 by Grover Robbins, who had been successful with Tweetsie Railroad, and was fully operational until 1980.
The costumes of the workers were based on the book at first, but were later changed more in tune to the film. The park also had a museum which housed props and costumes in the film.
