Horror Island Amusement Park

by Drac Von Stoller, Horror Island Amusement Park Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Horror Island Amusement Park book, What was once in every child's dream is now just an echo in the wind of a past gone by. Horror Island Amusement Park had the largest Ferrous Wheel, biggest roller coaster, and a beautiful view of the ocean. As many years, weather, lack of funding and dwindling attendance, the amusement park was shut down and boarded up. But that wasn't the only reason for the decrease in attendance and the closing of the park. Reports of poor maintenance on the rides were the cause of many deaths and the major cause of shutting down the amusement park. Thirty years later, there were reports of strange things going on at the abandoned amusement park. At night the rides started up on their own and the funny thing was, is that the park has been out of operation for over thirty years without any power. The police were called out to the park many times to investigate, but when they located the power supply all the wires were ripped out of the fuse boxes. The police also reported hearing laughter and voices as though the amusement park was still in full operation. A sign was put on the front gate of the amusement park which read "No trespassing! Any violators will be prosecuted." A local ghost hunting group decided they would try and solve the strange goings on at the Horror Island Amusement Park. They called themselves "The Ghost Detectors Society." The Ghost Detectors Society consisted of Darren, Karen and Steve. They all thought solving the strange happenings would bring them fame, but they should have just stuck to doing the small stuff. Darren picked an overcast day to set the mood of the investigation. The fame struck ghost hunters met up at the amusement park at the stroke of midnight. Everything was just as perfect as any ghost hunter would have wanted it to be, overcast and windy. Everyone had all their ghost hunting equipment, in their briefcases ready for the big event to unfold. As they approached the gate, Darren said, "Everyone check your equipment to make sure everything is operating properly. Karen chimed in, "Darren, do you think we're going to really find any proof, or is this just a bunch of made up stuff to bring curious ghost hunters like us to make fools out of us." Darren exclaimed, "If we don't find any evidence we can at least say we believe in what we are doing as ghost hunters is worth the effort. Not every ghost hunter finds evidence, but when they do, it gives other ghost hunters like ourselves, hope that there is unexplainable things that makes it worth looking into. I don't care what anybody thinks of what we are doing is just a waste of time, if we didn't believe, we all would be at home playing video games and there would never be such things as ghost hunters. Thank goodness there are believers like us willing to take the risk in tapping into the unknown. I don't think any one of us would rather be at home playing video games. Let’s just be happy. Our ghost hunting dreams has brought us closer together as friends. I believe we were brought here for a reason and that reason is to find ghosts. Steve, is your equipment ready? "Yes, all my batteries are at full charge." "What about you Karen? Is your equipment good to go?" "Yes, everything is fine. I sure hope we get some good video footage." These young ghost hunters are about to stir up some ghost activity that should have stayed buried in the abandoned amusement park forever.

Abandoned

by Seph Lawless, Abandoned Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Abandoned book, Huffington Post called him “a master of the abandoned”—and for good reason. The “artivist” known only as Seph Lawless has spent the last ten years photo-documenting the America that was left behind in the throes of economic instability and overall decline—decrepit shopping malls, houses, factories, even amusement parks. Through nearly two hundred gorgeous and elegiac photographs, Abandoned details Lawless’s journey into what was once the very heart of American entertainment: the amusement park. Lawless visits deserted parks across the country, capturing in stark detail their dilapidated state, natural overgrowth, and obvious duality of sad and playful symbolism. Previously self-published as Bizarro, this updated edition of Lawless’s photographic tribute to decaying American amusement parks contains new content and a new foreword. For the first time, the famed photojournalist Seph Lawless makes his moving work available in a stunning trade edition.

Frontier Town Abandoned Theme Park Then And Now

by Jennifer Renee ST.Pierre, Frontier Town Abandoned Theme Park Then And Now Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Frontier Town Abandoned Theme Park Then And Now book, Frontier Town Abandoned Theme Park Then and Now is a coffee table style book that documents the conception, life, and closing of the beloved Adirondack Mountain's historically based theme park called "Frontier Town." With America being romanced by Western movies on the big screen and television, the country was ready for a western themed amusement park. Arthur Bensen, Edward Ovensen and Magnus Anderson, three Long Island Norwegian-American friends came together to open America's first western themed amusement park located in North Hudson, NY yet it was set to the traditions of the 1800's old west while offering local trade crafts and wares. The first year it drew over 40,000 visitors with little advertising. Over the next 45 years the park continued to host millions of visitors, and averaged over 300 employees and volunteers per season. The park included a collection of genuine log buildings which formed a traditional frontier town, a professional rodeo arena, a historical industrial section that included a grist mill, saw mill, forge, and ice house. It also included a traditional Native American village, animals, stage coach rides, and a fort with a full cavalry. This book documents the history of Frontier Town through professional photography as well as visitor's snapshots that are combined with historical storytelling that give the reader a feel of what Frontier Town was all about! Tammy Whitty-Brown's gift of gab and historical connections combined with her storytelling abilities and Jennifer Renee ST.Pierre's equestrian background and photography are showcased with their love of Adirondack history

Download Frontier Town Abandoned Theme Park Then And Now book, Soft cover, second edition version. Frontier Town was the original theme park in the Adirondack mountains. This book tells some of the history from the perspective of the owners, former staff, staff's families, volunteers and visitors. Originally this was going to be a photography book but as more people contributed photos they talked about the stories that in time would have been lost. The theme park was the inspiration for Disney replica built in his western theme park in California. Frontier Town in North Hudson NY gave generations of families employment as well as giving students summer jobs to prepare for college. The trades taught at Frontier Town inspired visitors to take on crafting and trades. The atmosphere of Frontier Town inspired a family friendly workplace with three owners that worked as a team to build a business that would effect anyone that visited. During transitions in management style, the theme park retained a culture that included real cowboys, Native Americans and a living museum set in a Frontier Town. Now abandoned due to taxes its future is being left up to the courts as the buildings return to nature. Its beauty remains even in its ghost state. Photography of this beautiful town has brought it back to life as it remains in the hearts of anyone that has seen it. Co-Author and Nature Photographer Jennifer ST.Pierre and former employee Tammy Whitty-Brown collaborated with over 150 people to finish this project.
