II. Gulliver’s Kingdom, JAPAN

Gulliver’s Kingdom Theme Park, built in the shadow of Japan‘s Mount Fuji with oodles of government stimulus money, was a sprawling white elephant that existed for only 10 years. Today there’s little if any trace of the abandoned theme park, its ruins, or Gulliver himself but the eerie and unsettling images captured by a legion of intrepid “haikyo” explorers.

III. Heritage, USA

Heritage USA was an American Christian theme park, water park, and residential complex built in Fort Mill, South Carolina by PTL Club (short for “Praise The Lord”) founders televangelist Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker. Much of the park, the area of which once comprised 2,300 acres (9.3 km2; 3.6 sq mi), was built by noted church builder Roe Messner, who later married Tammy Faye Bakker. Pictures of the park, including the water park Heritage Island, remain accessible online. Since its closure in 1989, projects have been constructed on the grounds of the former theme park with varying success, and portions of the property have been sold to several companies. (Wikipedia)

IV. Holy Land USA

Holy Land USA is an 18-acre (7.3 ha) theme park in Waterbury, Connecticut, inspired by selected passages from theBible. It consists of a chapel, stations of the cross, and replicas of catacombs and Israelite villages constructed from cinder blocks, bathtubs, and other discards. The park closed to the public in 1984. Over its period of closure, the land and monuments faced the effects of vandalism. On September 14, 2014, the site officially reopened to the public for the first time in 30 years with an inaugural mass and access to the grounds. (Wikipedia)

Art - The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in avisual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. Art is what the eyes of each one like to enjoy. We do not intend to show trivialities but only share our experiences. What we like, is what we exhibit. Strange, Bizarre, Burlesque, Death, Night, Dark, Mythology, Myth and Folklore is what will be shown here. "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science." -Albert Einstein
