    During my college days I actually spent a couple weeks working on a cleanup crew that was trying to keep Holy Land USA from falling into complete disrepair. Although it was officially closed to visitors, the gate was never locked and people used to stop by quite often. The “religious order” that ran the site consisted of just two nuns, only one of whom would on occasion come around (in two weeks of working there full time I saw her maybe twice). Even though the city had no official responsibility for Holy Land it sent in the cleanup crew on which I worked, mainly out of fears that it would be liable if people became injured while wandering around the site.

      I don’t think I’ve ever seen an abandoned amusement park. I find the concept of them fascinating. This is probably related to how frequently they are used as a backdrop in superhero stories.
