10 Chilling Photos Of Abandoned Amusement Parks

Ohio’s Geauga Lake was once an amusement park full of life. It was open for decades before shutting its doors in 2007. Now it’s in the list of Abandoned Amusement Parks. This is just one of many abandoned amusement parks that can be found around the world. Sitting in a shadow full of history. Urbex photographer Seph Lawless decided to showcase some of these defunct theme parks in his book Bizarro: The World’s Most Hauntingly Beautiful Abandoned Theme Parks. Seph Lawless also shoots photos during a thunderstorm making the scenario more horrifying.

“It was entirely unorthodox as a photographer to do that, but I never really considered myself one anyways. I’m merely an artist that tries to offer different creative perspectives,” he says

These theme parks don’t have ghost tales attached to them, but the photos are just as eerie and speak to a bigger issue.
