Abandoned but not forgotten


As children we all experienced the exciting rush of entering an amusement park; the thrill of racing around choosing which ride we’d like to try, the carnival music, the lights and buzz of a place where a childhood almost stops in time. Yet when an amusement park is abandoned, it’s an eerie unsettling place that speaks to many of us as broken dreams and, perhaps a broken promise. Still, we should look at these relics and imagine the happiness that once surrounded the parks and maybe the ghosts of some little ones who had lived and loved these once magnificent centres still roam between the roller coasters and dodgem cars. This blog pays tribute to some of these amusement parks – enjoy these captivating, often-creepy, mysterious photographs of a time that has slipped away.
