  • [Pictures] Nara Dreamland - Abandoned DL rip-off Theme Park

    Neatorama made a post today linking to a set of pictures at BrandKnewMe, showing the current state of Nara Dreamland. Nara Dreamland opened in Nara, Japan in 1961, and is a very clear "rip-off" of a certain American park we all know. The theme park closed in 2006, but a group of explorers found their way into the park and took some great pictures, as you can see here.



    Neatorama, in the past, has also linked to this famous trip report by the great folks at Theme Park Review, who visited the park while it was still operating in 2004.

    wow. Those are great pictures! The colors on everything are still so vibrant.

    The pic of the carousel was really heartbreaking. To think they just left it whole like that.....sad.

      Wow, creepy and cool. The animatronic man with out a face was pretty sad.

      It sort of reminds me of the opening scenes of Spirited Away, but more run down.

        If I am not mistaken isn't there still another rip-off park around?

          Yes, of course. Beijing Shijingshan Amusement Park is known to have some Disneyland qualities, (and I think they got in trouble for using the characters once or twice.) And around the world there are parks that clearly use some of Disney's concepts.

            Unbelievable! What great photos. I could get lost in a place like that and enjoy every spooky minute of it.

              How creepy. I was in Nara in April, but we just stayed in the touristy area.

                I just took a look at the photos. Wow! The History Channel should get over there and do an episode of Life After People.
