Time Stands Still At This Abandoned Arkansas Amusement Park
The Sunset Drive-In and Roller Rink in Hamburg was once a favorite date night spot. Although the forest has taken over the attractions, the memories still linger at the Sunset. Let’s take a tour of what’s left of this nostalgic spot.
This tour is brought to us by our friends over at AbandonedAR. They travel to forgotten locations all over the state to preserve these places through historic documentation.
The Sunset is on private property so please, no trespassing.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
