When not lucky, it does not carry it all at once, and it looks like the amusement park "Kingdom of Gulliver" has drawn all 33 misfortunes!
It would seem that the location for the construction was chosen just perfect - just two hours drive from Tokyo and before the eyes of the picturesque surroundings of Mount Fuji.
But then, as luck would have it,The headquarters of the sect "Aum Shinrikyo", which took in the victim almost 7 thousand people, and a little later earned a plant for the production of nerve gas sarin.
Should I then mention the neighboring "Suicide Forest"?
Alas, "Gulliver's Kingdom" worked only 4 years and was closed ... because of the unfortunate location!

Because of low attendance and large losses, the city authorities decided to close it, and on August 31, 2006, the park's employees forever drowned the engines of all the attractions and closed the gates to the key.

3. "Wonderland" Chenzhuang, China (1998)
It was assumed that the "Wonderland" or "Wonderland", built 30 kilometers from Beijing will not only be an analogue of the American Disneyland, but a worthy alternative to it in Asia!
But, alas, you still have not heard about such a banal collapse of a children's dream - it turns out that the authorities and farmers have long argued about the price of land, and they decided that "neither yours nor ours."
Now the abandoned territory is "decorated" with unfinished objects and farmer's gardens.
4. Okpo Land, Okpo-Dong, South Korea (1999)
Another terrible story, from which the blood runs cold ... Okpo Land Park was built in order to give children a smile, but instead began to take their lives away!
The last accident was too eloquent to allow the park to continue working ...
It turns out that during riding one of the ducks on the carousel turned over, throwing down a little girl.
A couple of years ago all the attractions were dismantled for details, and the land was put up for sale. But do you think there are people willing to buy it?

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina was wiped from the face of the earthMost of New Orleans, and with it, and all that made the city unique and special. The amusement park "Six flags" was one of the favorite places for family holidays.
He was still remembered under the stylish musicalThe name "Jazzland", but after purchasing in 2002 the corporation "Six Flags Entertainment" gave him not only a new name, but a new life.

8. "LunEur", Rome, Italy (1953-2008)
Luna-park "LunEur" was one of those thatCertainly fall into the frame of romantic films. By the way, it was opened by chance - in the framework of the agricultural fair in 1953, but so liked the residents of the city and tourists, which became the most favorite entertainment place.
It's a pity that even the title "historical" did not save him from lawsuits from the "Union of Workers' Organization," and in 2008 the biggest and oldest amusement park of Italy had to be closed.
Although, if you have an extra 16 million euros, the engines of carousels can earn again!
9. Dadipark, Dadizel, Belgium (1950-2002)
Almost 70 years ago, the pastor of the Belgian town of Dadizel helped open a small playground for the local residents.

The last and most sad happened to the boy, who on the water slide Nautic Jet tore off his hand.
15 years ago, "Dadipark" was closed, and all the buildings and attractions went under demolition.
10. "Spreepark", Berlin, Germany (1969-2002)
It seems that the amusement park in East Berlin "Kulturpark Plänterwald" was the only one who was not happy to unite the GDR and the FRG in 1990.
After this historic event, he receivedA new boss and a new name - "Spreepark". But contrary to expectations, it is now double the number of visitors from 1.5 million to 3, it has halved!
Alas, the owners did not cope with debts and "Spreepark" forever remained only a memory from childhood ...
