  • Creepy Halloween Banner Ideas: Abandoned Amusement Parks

    Disneyland, Six Flags, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios, Schlitterbahn...

    Sound familiar? That's because these theme parks are still well in existence, well in pocket, and doing fine in attendance.

    But have you heard of Gulliver's Kingdom? Or Chippewa Lake Park? There's plenty more that would simply fly over your head, unless you were born many decades ago. These abandoned amusement parks are so-called due to poor attendance or natural disasters. Since then, nature has reclaimed the land, leaving behind hollow shells of rides that once were. Yes, it's kind of sad to say good bye to these beloved places of childhood fantasy, but nowadays, if you visit them, they're just downright creepy.

    If you're stumped on a banner design for Halloween this coming October, it might behoove  you to take a look at some amazingly chilly abandoned amusement park images. This would be especially appropriate if you're planning some sort of Haunted Trail or Haunted Hay Ride. All the rust, the overgrown ivy and foliage, and twisting trees...gives me the willies just thinking about.

    This is from a FunFair near Pyongyang, the capitol of North Korea. It has long been abandoned since the state could no longer fund it.

    From Chernobyl. 'Nuff said. I mean, I don't even want to know what that is...

    Now that we've all been significantly chilled (and had some of our childhood memories dashed), swing on over to Top Design Mag and read this article on more abandoned amusement parks.
