Hanna's Spree Park and Other Haunted Amusement Parks
Posted March 24, 2011 to photo album "Hanna's Spree Park and Other Haunted Amusement Parks"
Germany’s surreal Spree Park gets a cameo in Hanna. But it’s just one of dozens abandoned amusement parks that people still visit.
Katoli World (Taichung, Taiwan)
In the mid 80s, Katoli World opened its gates in the Dakeng scenic area just outside of Taichung, Taiwan. The park was an immediate hit, famous for its scream-inducing roller coasters. But on Sept 21, 1999, an earthquake hit the area, killing thousands. Since the park was closed at the time of the earthquake, its only real fatality was itself. Katoli World was forced to shut its gate, abandoning the fun and rides to the overgrown grass and trees. The haunted after park has been fully chronicled at the Katoli World section of the Abandoned But Not Forgotten site.
