Hue abandoned theme park among world’s 10 most bewitching
CNN has listed dragon-themed Thuy Tien Water Park on the outskirts of Hue in central Vietnam among the world’s 10 fascinating theme parks that have closed forever.
The amusement park opened in 2004 and closed down just a few months later due to financial problems.
It has since remained abandoned, but its creepy and desolate image is a cause for curiosity for many foreign tourists.
Due to its severe deterioration, local authorities prevent people from entering it on safety grounds.
“Nowadays it’s an unofficial tourist attraction, the decaying dragon, water slides and other features looking more like ruins from a thousand years ago rather than a 21st-century attraction,” CNN said.
Recently authorities have been considering renovating the park at a cost of VND20 billion ($860,000) and turning it into a public tourist attraction.
Other names in the list are Yongma Land in South Korea, Nara Dreamland in Japan, Mimaland in Malaysia, and Berliner Spreepark in Germany.
