There is something both sad and creepy about an abandoned amusement park. Perhaps it's because a place that was once packed with fun seekers has become slowly choked with weeds. Or maybe it's because the sound of children's excited laughter has been replaced with the quiet creaking of rusted rides. When the only visitors are the spirits of those who died there long ago, an amusement park can be a very scary place to visit. Within the 11 amusement parks in this book, you will discover a roller coaster left to rot after nearly killing its passengers, deserted rides that are now home to alligators and snakes, and the ghost of a man who is still trying to ride a Ferris wheel that stopped working years ago.
