That would work when it was open:

Warning: While this review is okay, some of Theme Park Review's other articals are Not Safe For Work.  Bluesad

(Actually security is supposed to be pretty tight; it might be funny to see a family chased around an abandoned park by an angry security guard.  Perhaps they were looking for Tokyo Disneyland, requested directions for a Japanese Disneyland, and wound up here.)

I'm thinking one of those frat party movies...

Ocean View Park was a real place, until somebody made a movie about it...

They should allow the homeless to live in abandoned theme parks.

It had a sister park: Yokohama Dreamland

That park was closed in 2003(?).  They tore it down....to build a prison.   Smile

Pics here: http://www.rcdb.com/5000.htm

Edit: After further research, I'm not sure what they built there.  They might have built a used car auction site and a school.  A prison sounds funnier though, so it sticks out.

Something about the idea of a run down abandoned theme park just screams "horror movie" to me.

Here's a movie idea:
Ghosts of the people who died in this park come back and start a zombie like feeding frenzy on the inmates of the new prison.
G.A. Romero should direct it!

It could be a location for a post apocolyptic film? Those pictures made me want to look up abonded houses. Facinating! :)

If you want the survivors to stumble on Disneyland/World, it would work.

Here's a park which looks like the Apocalypse already happened:

Well, this is a bit sad; Nara Dreamland sold last year, & is being torn down: https://abandonedkansai.com/2016/11/08/nara-dreamland-demolition/

I don't know how up to date this info is, but it looks like the Yokohama College of Pharmacy took it over as a college campus. Building an academic library, classrooms, and labs there. Later adding other structures, amenities, and green spaces.

Though a prison sounds like more fun. And with "It's a Small World (After All)" playing on a continuous loop, it'd be the Prison from Hell. Where even the toughest prisoners fear to go.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
