What exactly happens to a theme park when there’s no longer crowds of crazed children and tired parents surging through it, music playing from every possible direction and a bunch of disgruntled workers walking around in terrible uncomfortable costumes? Well, it turns into something far more creepy, eery and still.
Disney’s River Country water park in Bay Lake, Florida was Disney’s very first water park back in 1976. Unfortunately, it was forced to close down back in 2001 after a young boy passed away from an infection he actually contracted at the park.
The wildly talented photographer Seph Lawless recently got inside the now abandoned theme park and managed to snap a beautiful collection of creepy but strangely beautiful photos.
The photographer said that one of is main motivations was to show how much rubbish and waste Disney left behind in this part of Florida.
Check out the creepy hat left behind on this rotten path. Spooky…
It’s crazy to think that this was once one of the most sophisticated and innovative water parks in the world.
We wouldn’t advise having a go on the slide anymore…
This particular photo makes the swampy area actually look kind of inviting. Kind of…
Once again, we really don’t think that this particular slide will be passing any safety tests. Proceed with extreme caution.
Seph has reportedly been banned from all Disney establishments for the rest of his life. Now, that seems a little bit harsh.
