Anonymous asked: I miss seeing posts from this blog! Hope you guys get up and running again soon.
I’m sorry I haven’t been posting very much lately, but thanks so much for the message. I’ve been so busy with college this semester, so I don’t know when things’ll start up again, but I’ll try to make sure to post something whenever ever I can ;A;
Hello! I went to see “The Wolverine” this weekend, and while I wouldn’t recommend it (at all), it did feature a famous haikyo (abandoned place) in Japan: The Nakagin Capsule Towers.
While, in the movie, it serves as the facade of a Love Hotel, in reality, the Nakagin Capsule Tower is a mostly abandoned structure built in the 70’s. Each apartment is a separate unit added to the main structure (kind of like legos). It’s impervious to Earthquakes, and has withstood many other disasters, however it’s falling into disrepair, and its fate is unknown at this time.

Abandoned (Haunted) Hotel in Colombia
The Hotel del Salto is located near Tequendama Falls on the Bogotá River in Colombia. It was opened in 1924 and shut its doors in the 1990′s. The hotel’s Gothic design is perfectly enhanced by a river and waterfall. Some say the hotel is haunted and no one wanted to stay there. Others state that the adjoining river was extremely polluted and they had to close. For whatever reason, the hotel stands as a beautifully macabre landmark for lovers of classic architecture, urban exploration, and maybe a few ghosts.
Someone was asking bout California,. Here you go~
"Takakanonuma Greenland" (by CreepPasta)
Someone mentioned that the spree park ferris wheel reminded them of Takakanonuma Greenland, so I found this creepy pasta. It falls into fiction about halfway through (I’ve never heard anything about that picture of the little girl at the gate), but the park honestly doesn’t need any embellishment to be scary.
What’s spookier than a theme park that closed in 1999 having no existence on video or film? It’s easy to find clips of Nara Dreamland’s glory days, but, for some reason, this one slipped beneath the radar.
Also, if the park is still standing, it’s in the fallout zone from Japan’s recent nuclear disaster.—
The Abandoned Ferris Wheel Spins Anyway
The thing that weirds me out most is that the squeaking really sounds like kids screaming on rides, like roller coasters.
GET THE SALT
This is the famous Spree Park ferris wheel! Last I heard, efforts were being made to restore it, but it’s too impatient to wait that long.
outlaw-gentleman asked: I'm getting amped up for my first-ever urban exploration. I'm excited but nervous, hoping to hell I don't get hurt or arrested. But I just discovered this blog. And I love it. <3 Which brings me to this: FLORIDA. You have ONE post set in Florida. Florida has a ton of abandoned places in Disney, North Florida and down U.S. 192. Check 'em out! :D
Awesome! If you send me the pictures, I’ll totally put them up on the blog. :) Just make sure to take a buddy if you can, as well as a flashlight, and a cellphone, and be careful! I wish you the best of luck.
As for Florida, I’ve written about a couple of Florida locations (though I know I haven’t even come close to hitting a lot of them), like Africa U.S.A, River Country, the abandoned Disney hotel, Xanadu, house of the future, and Splendid China (my tagging is a bit dodgy, I apologize).
But yes! Florida does have a lot of really great abandoned places, especially with all the tourism in the area. I’ll definitely have to look into it further.
