Reckless Abandon

So I came across this online, its an abandoned amusement park in Japan. Being the coaster geek I am I thought it was amazing. I would love to be able to see something like this. It's visually stunning, yet haunting at the same time.


  1. Makes one wonder why it was abandoned as it was...in other words, why wasn't it torn down or some components sold to other amusement parks. It's as if Godzilla came through and no one was left to clean up.

  2. This is such a sad sight to see a dead roller coaster rising out of a foggy woods. I'm reminded of the "Son of Beast" at Kings Island. It's the 10-year-old sequel to The Beast that has injured a number of people over the years. The park kept it closed last season, not knowing whether operating it is worth the risk of injury and lawsuits. It's not on the park maps and directories, yet it is plainly visible to the park guests. Walking by it was like a "ignore the man behind the curtain" moment. It's so sad to see a great roller coaster go to waste.

  3. these photos are very haunting
