China’s Abandoned Fake Disneyland

CHINA/Just outside of Beijing lies a skeletal shell of paradise…sometimes I feel as if we’re all living in an abandoned fake Disneyland. Via Architizer:

Construction on “Wonderland” began in 1998 with the intention of building the largest amusement park in Asia…The project was scrapped. A strange landscape of half-built structures amid corn fields and cracked pavement. The park is strewn with fragments of anachronistic landmarks, anchored by an unfinished fairytale castle whose inchoate construction dissolves into the smog.

    I would like to thank industrial paternalism for creating this abandoned site for sweet memories of keg parties and incredible tripping. http://www.abandonedok.com/united-kansas-portland-cement-company/

    This may not have panned out, but I heard they have a theme park that doubles as a midget reserve. All the Little People are encouraged to dress as fantasy characters. I shit you not.
