Creepy Tourism

Hey now...with Halloween just around the corner I thought, what can I do this year to scare the crap out of myself?  Normally I just tune in to world affairs to do that but I thought I'd combine my love of travel with a novel money-making scheme.

Theme'd tours are all the rage and I love to travel and with Halloween here, how about a creep-you-out world tour of abandoned amusement parks.  Seriously...these places are just creepy and you'd be surprised how many failed ones there are.  Take a virtual tour...


Go ahead...venture on in to "Paul's" mouth...
Yeah...the ghosts don't drive very well...

Not what I want to run into on a cold dreary day just at dusk...
This is where I let you venture on...all-by-yourself...
Go ahead...have a LOT of Fun in this funhouse...
No telling what you're gonna find as you head up the hill...
Palace or last resting place?  Go on in and see...
I could hire people to hide in these and scare you but the ghosts probably handle that fine
After you...
This is where I leave you blindfolded and alone counting to 100...
I'd say "Fool" Zone would be more appropriate now
Sit on down...we'll put on "The Shining" or "The Ring" and you can watch by yourself as it gets dark
Everbody loves abandoned abused over-sized clown heads
Dare you to sit down and see if the ride starts up on it's own...
Any fortune told from here can't be good...
Go right on in, order up...
Hey, if you wait awhile, the ghost coaster will arrive...
Hide and seek time...come find me...
Okay, and if you enjoyed that one, I'll be working on another world tour of creepy abandoned hospitals and insane asylums... 

Take a soak and relax...
Rumor has it Hitler was treated at this facility during WWI...bonus...
And finally, if that just isn't enough scare for you...you'll get invited to a special location.  The mysterious island of creepy hanging dolls that nobody seems to know who put them there or why but rumor has it the eyes follow you.

I'll have to admit it; that creepy doll place is kinda freaky. I'll stick to exploring just abandoned houses for now ;)

I remember seeing that clown train at the Butler County Fair when I was little. Even painted up it creeped me out.

It was also the subject of my first blog post over seven years ago.
