The Remnants Of This Dinosaur-Themed Amusement Park In Michigan Are Terribly Creepy

If you venture into a forest in Irish Hills, you will come across a long-forgotten roadside attraction with the most unusual features. As if ripped from a Jurassic Park sequel, you’ll encounter gigantic sculptures of dinosaurs, now severely weathered by years of abandonment.

Yes, this is the Prehistoric Forest. First opened in the early 1960s, this strange place closed in 1999. Take a glimpse of what this place once was and the aging monsters that remain.

We even see adventurous types shooting video of their discoveries… Brave souls, for sure.

Pretty bizarre, huh? Tell us – what are some of the long-lost roadside attractions or amusement parks in Michigan that made you feel just a little bit weirded out? Let us know!
