Abandoned Theme Parks, Theaters, Schools & Pools


Abandoned places are great for letting the imagination run wild. Whether they were once used for housing or work, buildings and sites which have been forgotten and allowed to fall into disrepair are fascinating glimpses into the past. Some of the most haunting abandonments, however, are those that were once used to entertain and educate - filled with vast once-vibrant gathering and learning spaces.

Abandoned Japanese Amusement Park




Is there anything more desolate than an abandoned amusement park? These photos from a Japanese amusement park have just the right combination of beauty and creepiness. After the park was abandoned, metal began to rust and trees began to find their way into the left-behind rides.

Abandoned Splendid China Amusement Park





In 1993, a new $100 million theme park called Splendid China opened in Kissimmee, Florida. From the beginning the park was plagued with controversy and disapproval. Though a Chinese tourist company apparently owned the park, it was said by many that the Chinese government actually owned and operated the attraction. The park was the site of numerous protests and eventually closed in 2003 due to low attendance.

Abandoned Chippewa Lake Amusement Park






One of the best-known and most often photographed abandoned theme parks in the US is Chippewa Lake Park in Medina County, Ohio. From 1878 to 1978, the Chippewa Lake site grew into a popular tourist attraction in a beautiful setting. After its closure following its centennial celebration, many rides and buildings were left standing. It’s still possible to see many of the structures today, although they are dilapidated and covered in 30 years of plant growth.

Dead Amusements Series by Suzy Poling





Abandoned amusement parks aren’t just for urban explorers and curious kids. Photographer Suzy Poling has made a fine art of documenting old and forgotten amusement parks. In her “Dead Amusements” series, she depicts the desolation of old parks and their elements with grace and an impeccable eye for composition.

Abandoned Theaters in Gary Indiana and Detroit Michigan




Whether they showed the work of Shakespeare or Spielberg, theaters make for fascinating sights when they’ve been abandoned and left to nature. Their ornate details begin to crumble and fall, and the seats once filled by dazzled viewers sit empty and cold. This derelict theater in Gary, Indiana (top two images) and the Detroit United Artists Theater are spooky but enchanting sights

Abandoned Uptown Theater in Philadelphia





The Uptown Theatre in Philadelphia has been the setting for many memorable performances. First opened in 1928, it functioned as a movie theater and as a venue for national music acts. After closing its doors as a theater, the building was once used as a church. Current reports say that the building is vacant, though several attempts have been made (and subsequently fallen through) to restore it to its former glory.

Abandoned Theater in Russia




Like many locations in 21st century Russia, this theater is just a ghost of its former self. Where crowds once anticipated the raising of the curtain and the first breathless moments before a performance, there is now only dust and debris.

Abandoned High School in Ohio






For a variety of reasons, schools are abandoned quite frequently. Many of them are re-used as administrative buildings or rehabilitated into apartments or offices. But some simply stand empty - perhaps drawing vandals and becoming an eyesore, or perhaps becoming the stuff of daydreams for developers and investors. Tiffin Columbian High School in Ohio is a spectacular building, but it is sadly the frequent target of vandals.

Abandoned High School in New Orleans






When Hurricane Katrina burst into New Orleans, she didn’t just take people’s homes. She tore away entire chunks of residents’ lives. Schools were left with everything in them, only to be claimed by the rising flood waters. These photos show the heartbreaking evidence of Katrina’s effect on Jean Gordon Elementary school.

Abandoned Open-Air Swimming Pool




Traie Meanagh was once the site of a popular open-air pool on the Isle of Man. Countless happy memories were had there with the pool’s races, bathing beauty contests, and competitions. After it ceased operation as a pool in 1981, it was turned into a fish farm. Traie Meanagh ceased to operate at all in 1990.

Abandoned Swimming Pool Series by Gigi Cifali






Just like amusement parks, abandoned pools can portray a serene beauty. Gigi Cifali has captured some of the most incredible abandoned swimming pools in England. According to her website, “in the Thirties United Kingdom…baths were at the peak of their popularity. Gradually tastes have changed, resulting in a drop in attendance, leaving the pools uneconomical to run.” If there is one good thing that can be said about the closure of these pools, it is that it’s allowed us the benefit of these gorgeous photos.

It's nice! and definitely interesting! But if we were want to explore, we've to ensure we know the way there and back. Of course, need to have experienced people to guide us..

but come to think of it.. abandoned area yet got experienced people? maybe only those spirits are experienced :x

Re: Abandoned Theme Parks, Theaters, Schools & Pools

You forgot to add to your thread title, "Rusty" & "Rundown".
Actually if the parks are closed, shouldnt they remove the rides too?
Its very disturbing to leave them there, unless like some people had posted before,
they want to use it as a movie set.
Thankfully Singapore has none of it, I hope.
And great job for the photographers who took the photos !
