The Abandoned Water Park In Texas That Won’t Be Seeing Any Visitors This Summer

When we think of water parks, we often imagine children frolicking around with smiles on their faces, long lines for every ride, and laughter everywhere we go. We don’t usually think of desolation and pure creepiness, but the now-abandoned Water Wonderland between Midland and Odessa is exactly that. The rides are still fully intact, adding to the spookiness because you can almost picture people actively enjoying their day before disappearing right in their tracks. Wondering if there’s a such thing as abandoned waterparks in Texas? The answer is yes – there is – and they’re creepy. 

Take a look at this video of Water Wonderland as it stands today and imagine yourself amidst the eeriness:
