Gaya Land: Not Quite the Happiest Place on Earth

This weekend, I hiked across town to visit our local amusement park, Gaya Land. The park is hanging on by a thread. The grounds are unkempt. The rides are rusting away. The water park has been drained. Not surprisingly, the crowd is quite small. The W1,500 (US$1) admission fee is worth it just to see the spectacle of a dead amusement park. Most of the rides do seem to be working, and with absolutely no lines at all.

I think that's suppose to be Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

The roller coaster, which actually runs when people want to ride it
