Lake Shawnee Amusement Park and Disney's River Country

Sunday, I saw on the Huffington Post that a hiker ran across a town that was abandoned supposedly 100 years ago.  At the bottom of that story, there was a link to a story about the Lake Shawnee Amusement Park that shut down and abandoned in the mid 60's.


Robert Hogue has an album on Flickr which includes the theme park.

It might sound like an episode of Scooby Doo, but this amusement park was built on an ancient Native American burial ground and after several accidents it was closed.  Check out the article from roadtrippers.com for some creepy photos of this abandoned theme park.

After seeing this story, I searched for other abandoned theme parks, and I learned about Disney's River Country. It was shutdown and abandoned about a decade ago.

Adamthewoo on YouTube posted a video back in 2010 of he and a friend sneaking into the abandoned park which still has music playing.
