Whether people like zombies or not, there’s just something hypnotizing about the depiction of grim visages of the apocalypse, showing a place where humans no longer reside. Typically you’ll find these stray images all over the web (hell, I even have a gallery of them) but the good news is that you don’t have to travel far if you want to see the real thing.
Case and point … this is an article I found over at digg.com today which depicts eight different amusement parks that still exist in their rotted abandoned form today. Yes, that’s right. Just think … if you live near one of these rusting hulks, you will not have to pay for a ticket to ride the rollercoaster. You can ride it for as many times as you want without waiting in line and if you’re lucky, the coaster won’t fall apart underneath you.
Granted, we all can’t be lucky like the folks in Zombieland who managed to discover a pristine amusement park that operates with the flicking of a master breaker, but some of these parks don’t look half bad. Just make sure you have a GPS tracker on you and a working cell phone. And well, from the looks of some of these parks, bring a working twelve gauge with you as well. Just saying.
