Designed to be Beijing’s answer to Disneyland, the Wonderland Amusement Park could become nothing more than one of the abandoned places around the world. The land prices led to the halt in construction in the year 1998. The land area is partially being used by local farmers to grow crops. There are also plans of demolishing the abandoned structures to make space for a shopping centre.
25. Dadipark, Dadizele, Belgium
Dadipark was one of the chic amusement parks in Belgium that got shut down over a decade back when a young boy lost his arm in one of the rides. Despite numerous leaks about its renovations and reopening plans, all that the park has seen so far is rust, graffiti, and underground skating parks.
26. Nara Dreamland Theme Park, Japan
Inspired by the Disneyland, the Nara Dreamland Park was opened in 1961 but was shut down by 2006. Ever since it has held one of the spooky-looking abandoned places in the world.
27. Spreepark, Berlin, Germany
Opened in the then-Soviet-ruled East Berlin in 1969, Spreepark was the only amusement park in the region back then. With the passage of time, the wall fell and bigger & better parks opened up. Subsequently, the amusement park was shut down in 2001 and has remained abandoned ever since.
28. Gulliver’s Travels Park, Kawaguchi, Japan
Opened in 1997, the Gulliver’s Travels Park in the Kawaguchi region of Japan could not last any longer than 10 years despite the financial aid from the Japanese government.
Other beautiful abandoned places in the world
29. Floating Forest, Sydney
Built in 1911, this SS Ayrfield retired in 1972 and was dumped in the ship graveyard in the Homebush Bay (west of Sydney). But the majestic mangrove trees and the greenery sprouting out of the vessel make it stand out from the rest.
30. Hotel del Salto, Columbia
Once a luxurious hotel, Tequendama Falls Hotel was built in the early 1920s in the city of San Antonio del Tequendama. But with the passage of time, the Bogota river became contaminated and the tourism declined. Eventually, the hotel was shut down and is now believed to be haunted.
