Nara Dreamland

abandoned 7

Nara Dreamland was built in 1961 near Nara, Japan. It was supposed to be almost identical to Disneyland, California and featured a train depot, Main Street USA and the Sleeping Beauty Castle. There was a Matterhorn Mountain, a monorail and a skyway running through the centre. The wooden rollercoaster was modelled on the Cyclone at Coney Island. Nara Dreamland closed for good in 2006 and security guards still patrol to make sure nobody enters.
