Abandoned Japanese theme park Nara Dreamland by Chris Luckhardt

Abandoned Japanese theme park Nara Dreamland by Chris Luckhardt

We are a big fan of the Canadian photographer Chris Luckhardt and we got our hands on a new awesome Urban Exploring serie by Chris. Nara Dreamland is an abandoned theme park near Nara, Japan. It was built in 1961 as a carbon copy of Disneyland in California. The theme park was permanently close on August 31, 2006.
Japan has become the home of several abandoned theme parks due to the popularity of Tokyo Disneyland and Universal Studios in Osaka.
This set of photos were taken during an early April morning (between 4:30-8:30am) in extremely foggy and damp conditions.
Entering and theme park is risky because local residents keep an eye on the area. Exiting the them park before 9:00am is imperative due to the arrival of day time security.
Imagining the playful laughter of children who once occupied the now silent, misty theme park was a haunting experience.

The wood roller coaster’s name is Aska. Shots from the top are on that coaster. It was based on The Cyclone coaster at Coney Island. The looping roller coaster’s name is Screw Coaster.

Chris Luckhardt is a Canadian photographer who specializes in photographing abandoned places around the world. See more of his photography on Facebook and Instagram.
