Theme parks are the best destination for rides, games, and a day full of fun.
However, some of these parks don’t last forever.
When a German-inspired theme park named Glück Kingdom first opened its doors in 1989, the creators and operators hoped the attractions would bring more tourism to the island of Hokkaido, Japan.
One day, the theme park had to completely shut down. For a while, its existence was forgotten — until today.
Ten years after the theme park closed, a brave man stepped inside to explore the remains of the once-populated land.
In the video below, posted on June 16, 2017, a man walks toward the eerie, empty theme park as a friend films him from behind. He is ready to investigate the ruins of the theme park, interested to see what he’ll find inside.
Once he gets inside, he is overwhelmed by the enormous presence the park still has. Although it’s been 10 years, the rides still have a little color and character to them.
He approaches the huge, rusted Ferris wheel and a roller coaster frozen in time. As he observes his surroundings, he and his cameraman keep moving and stumble upon several rides that have been taken over by nature within the last decade.
