That weapon will replace your tongue. You will learn to speak through it. And your poetry will now be written with blood.

hot damn i love these pics! the closest thing i've ever experienced to this was an abandoned school/rumored insane asylum for children in upstate new york.

I think i may have mentioned it before, but my cousin and her friends called it Bailey Hall. It was legit the creepiest place i'd ever been...tiny old leather shoes everywhere

One of my favorite topics... I really love 1950s fairytale lands...

You know who is really into this subject matter as well -- is Dan Goodsell -- the artist who created Mr. Toast.

Here is a link to his entire section on these awesome amusements of yesteryear...

Juxtaposing the then & now shots really brings out the neglect ... especially that pool, yikes.

Spreepark is an abandoned communist theme Park in Berlin. It was declared insolvent in 2001 and has been rotting ever since.

Not really a creepy image. I don't remember much from my childhood...but I'll never forget the NY worlds fair [1965]...I was only 3 years old.

those are really amazing


the chernobyl one brings a sad reminder. All those people that died. They wolves roam the areas now but there is no idea how badly they are affected from radiation. I remember Ghost Hunters or one of those shows did a hunt in Chernobyl. They had to monitor radiation and their guide would only go so far

I love old theme parks too. I go to a few with my kids that are active still...

Active Fairyland parks...
The year was 1948: pre-Disneyland, pre–Disney World, pre-Nickelodeon—a truly prehistoric era for children’s entertainment. Television—not to mention children’s TV—was in its infancy. There were small “kiddielands” in communities around the United States, each with its carousel, pony ride, and cotton-candy stand. There were boardwalks with thrill rides that appealed to teenagers. But there were no attractions dedicated solely to stimulating the imaginations of young children through well-known stories.

I also love the old rides at Disneyland.
