Berlin's Creepiest Abandoned Theme Park Burned Down Over the Weekend

By Alissa Walker on at

Sorry, fans of ruin porn, creators of would-be Saw-sequels, and demented Walt Disney wannabes: the famous abandoned theme park in Berlin named Spreepark was destroyed by two separate fires over the weekend. Arson is suspected.

Over a decade after it was closed, the dilapidated park was put up for sale this spring and then taken over by the city, with many hoping it would be restored to its former glory. No word on how much of the park can be salvaged, if at all, but today, we can look back at this collection of images, and read a wonderful story over at Quartz remembering the park's brighter days (which were actually still quite dark). Auf Wiedersehen, Spreepark. [Quartz]
