The Remnants Of This Abandoned Theme Park In Cleveland Are Hauntingly Beautiful

In a city like Cleveland, there is no shortage of abandoned buildings. In fact, it’s estimated that around 11% of the properties in Cleveland are unoccupied. But there is something especially eerie and beautiful about this historic, ambitious, now-abandoned amusement park in Aurora, OH. The skeleton of this once-impressive theme park is a nostalgic walk through childhood summers, but also a sobering reminder of what we leave behind.
