From the eerie to the downright terrifying, nothing says creepy like an abandoned amusement park. The juxtaposition of a former fun-for-the-whole-family attraction and the remnants of what's left behind give "haunting" a whole new meaning.

Ruins that are overtaken by nature are like decaying memories of what used to be, and amusement parks without patrons are nightmare-inducing. You can find a startling number of abandoned parks around the world, and some are creepier than others simply because of how they met their demise.
