    I love UrbEx but that was crap. 5 years is nothing, hence most of it still looks relatively normal, brightly painted etc.

    There`s some great abandoned theme parks out there where they`ve been abandoned for longer and look SERIOUSLY creepy!

    Where`s the mad scientist or super villain? Aren`t they required by law to move one into abandoned amusement parks after the places start to look creepy?
    I think they are supposed to work like moth balls in an old box of clothes.

    The photography techniques really added a lot to it... The best ones were the almost sepia-toned photos like 1, 6, and 31.

    Reminds me of Zombieland. I think that`s mostly because I read "Witchita" though

    I`m from Wichita, KS. I miss Joyland :[ I drive by it every now and then, and I just wanna pull in and walk around. Too bad the gates are locked.
