A Park Formerly Known for Amusement

Aww, I never thought an abandoned rollercoaster could look so sad. Something very haunting about the place, don't you think? Props to the photographer. More pics here.

» Abandoned Amusement Park from iRants.com Weblog
Whoa. An abandoned amusement park? This place sure is creepy. Everything is rusted. The thing I think about when I see this is that it would make a great level in a video game.... [Read More]

This photographer did an amazing job. Some of these shots are just amazing. Abandoned rollercoaster and park. It looks like his site is getting slammed, but maybe it will be back up soon. [Read More]

Lets pool some money and move that coaster to the States. Mostly cost for dismantle and shipping, everything on net shipping is waved for purchases overe $100. Who's gonna send the firts $2???

Thats so sad... so many children have soo many memories

Elladan

Kind of reminds me of a Myst (no pun intended) game.

Trevor

Anyone know the story behind this place?

Eric

I second those props. Awesome pictures. The photographer, whoever s/he is, has a good eye.

Worldtechguy

Good luck finding a lawyer or a judge who would let you put it up for any use other than a mega-trellis.

Josh Mills

What amazing photos. Those are really compelling for some reason. Can anyone say Silent Hill?

Catback

The fog gives it that eerie feeling. That photographer has a thing for old, abandoned, perhaps even dead things.

zachary

Wow thats cool and sad

Melvin Love

LOoks like something from silent hill!

John

Can anyone make sense of this:

Sarah, you've managed to impress me yet again! Your eye for asthetic beauty is improving! Keep it up! Oh...about the rollercoaster, the fog gives it a creepy atmosphere. It's more like the rollercoaster from hell..

Phil

Did Kevin and Sarah split up?

Noticed that Sarah is not listed under "My Love" on Kevin's site...???

Brudus

I can just picture all that stuff just starting to run on its own.

CJ Hard

I saw these about a month ago on a warez site I frequent. Is that the same place you saw it Sarah? };-)

Nashvillan

Wow, great pictures, Sarah.

I don't comment much, but this link took me back to the golden days of when we used to have a theme park in town. About 7 years ago, the park folded and a megamall was built in it's place. :'(

A loyal fan created a website based on one of the rides at that park a few years ago. Sadly, that site is no longer up.

If you're interested, I can try and dig up an old article about the park we used to have which also has pictures of it's own. I also took my own pictures of a lone ride that hasn't been used since 1997. When they built the mall, the ride was waaaay off in the back corner of the parking lot, that they just decided to leave it there.

the Nashvillan misses Opryland USA.... :*(

did u and kevin break up

rocketman

my bet is kevin & sarah broke up. they dont seem to acknowledge each other as much.

Samantha

I like your new longer hair style.

I think that it shows that the Japanese still hold true to their past with really liking things that are old. Beauty can be captured anywhere, and I really like that.

Bob

Found great pics of Sarah...

The Inquisitor

Well, I guess there was lot of strain on the relationship, ever since last fall. It didn't help matters when they switched up the format. Anyway, their reasons for breaking up are personal, so let's not inquire beyond that.

ntz

does anyone know of a program that will post on a VBulletin forum automatically in like intervals of one hour?

fan of aots

wow the picture look pretty cool

Guy

It would be hella funny if they turned it on and rode it all rusted like that.

joe

Creepy. Reminds me of Silent Hill.

jim

that is the creapest thing I ever saw!

Kathy

Sarah,

I got to tell you this is one of the coolest sites. I love the pictures of the empty abandoned buildings.

Nephets

I feel bad for the man hidden and trapped inside of that Ferris Wheel.

Sarah, why cant you ever put some usefull stuff on your blog anymore, when you were with techtv, you would be putting real tech content, now, your putting crap, the only i read this now is cause it keeps me remembering old techtv, not what you have though, what you had, my suggestion is go to the old sarah, screw the movies, ebay, teh feed, bring back the geek!

sean

if you like pictures of abandoned buildings, here's a really nice site of places around St. Louis:

Sarah, how long ago did you and Kevin breakup? You two seemed great together.

Nephets

That is kind of private information... as in, their business.

Bill

Well Kevin is not playing fair. He put a little black book on his moblog. Looks like Kevin is showing his feeling in a public way...

Peter Apockotos

I didn't know any of that. You can just tell the way they act around each other on the show. And then none of them have pictures of one another on their sites recently.
