    Welcome to Wonderland
    [HR][/HR]


    [HR][/HR]
    Well hello all, today I finally got round to visiting one of Beijing's odd anomalies, that being Wonderland. Wonderland was going to be Asia's biggest theme park with construction starting in 1998. However disputes with local farmers put the project on hold and still today unfinished. Now I am soon heading back to the UK for university and it would have been a shame not to visit Wonderland. So without further ado here's what we saw.

    [HR][/HR]
    First up the colourful tacky buildings can be seen from afar just pasting by along the highway. Yet it's fake charm makes it only the more eerie



    Outside, the flowers are oddly kept watered and cut.



    Heading inside and we find an empty shell to what could have been an arcade or some sort of amusement









    Some views from the roof of the building







    More of the inside









    Local farmers making use of the buildings. This in particular being a chicken coop



    After this we proceeded into the wall as seen in the first image. The wall is hollow with many rooms throughout. Here's the entrance



    First found a ton of these boxes, what could it be?



    Floor Distribution systems?



    Opened one up and found this, no idea what it does





    Heading through the wall, at each turret there were spiral staircases going up.



    Not really...



    Old Electric Mahjong table





    Creepy Corridor













    Heading back outside to other building





    Somebody practicing their English with themselves



    We didn't get this either...





    Turns out someone sleeps here...



    They don't own much









    Now to the tower



    Or not..





    This translates to "This place has dead people"



    Onward to the tower, the bare metal frame before it









    The tower



    Almost there



    Hello





    The way up to the ground floor



    Time to climb up..



    Inside now



    Up the stairs



    Oh shit...



    Second floor



    Up on the second highest tower











    We then headed up the second tower, however there was no opening. So instead I left a mark.



    Heading back down and home, on the way back saw the same chickens.



    So I hope you enjoyed that. I know I did, except for the fiberglass embedded in my arm...

    Was in OP Wonderland was going to be Asia's biggest theme park with construction starting in 1998. However disputes with local farmers put the project on hold and still today unfinished.

    This was pure luck. It rained the night before leaving the skies blue. Usually it's a grey sky covered with pollution.

    What it usually looks like:

    That whole thing is damn scary. "WONDERLAND IS DEAD" "FOLLOW THE WHITE RABBIT". Seems like some kind of creepypasta, and I actually got vertigo when you looked down the stairwell. Abandoned amusement parks are weird by default, but the whole fake charm and forced happiness (along with somebody LIVING there) just made this perfect. You took some good pictures.

    Gotta admit, If you were homeless it would be a pretty neat place to house yourself.

    Just wake up, go onto the balcony, have an amazing view of everything near you.

    And a cool thing would be that you could just watch the world go by.

    The idea of exploring a place like this scares me when I think that some Chinese gang could be housed in there and you're just wondering about taking photos

    Before I saw your comment I could have sworn this was like something out of a Miyazaki Movie. Now I know where he got it from!
