Come play with me.

Nara Dreamland was a theme park near Nara, Japan which was built in 1961 and inspired by Disneyland in California. On August 29, 2006, Nara Dreamland closed permanently because of low visitor numbers, possibly due to the popularity of Universal Studios Japan, which opened in nearby Osaka in 2001. The park has been abandoned ever since.

The park contained several rides prior to closing, including:

  1. Aska, a wooden roller coaster based on The Cyclone at Coney Island
  2. Screw Coaster, an Arrow Development designed double corkscrew steel roller coaster
  3. Bobsleigh, a steel roller coaster modeled after the Matterhorn Bobsleds
  4. Fantasy Coaster
  5. Kid’s Coaster
  6. Figure-8 monorail

Other rides included a carousel, a small powered coaster, a Jungle Cruise styled ride, and a log flume.

Photographer Victor Habchy amazingly captures this abandoned theme park . Have a look at these pictures which will make you go nostalgic.

This is it. It felt like this journey was just some kind of surreal dream now.
