first_img6. Gulliver’s Kingdom, Kamikushiki, JapanJapan has more than its fair share of abandoned attractions. This particular example, which was based on Jonathan Swift’s classic novel, is possibly one of the creepiest Japanese theme parks. In its heyday, the park had all you could want in a Lilliputian-themed tourist attraction, except for one thing – visitors. One of the strangest sights is the 45-metre version of Lemuel Gulliver, tied to the ground at the foot of Mount Fuji. Perhaps the park’s failure could be blamed on its location; Aokigahara, also known as the Suicide Forest, backs on to this abandoned attraction. Either way, we reckon it definitely ranks as one of the world’s scariest attractions. Credit: Old Creeper Fancy upping the fear factor?

Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, USWe’ve got the perfect solution for wannabe ghost hunters wondering where to go on Halloween. Eastern State Penitentiary was once one of America’s biggest prisons, and it housed some of the world’s most dangerous criminals between 1829 and 1971. Conditions were tough and escape attempts were common. During renovations carried out in the 1930s, 30 incomplete tunnels were discovered. Today it’s possible to tour the prison, although large parts are off limits for safety reasons; years of neglect have filled many of the cells with crumbling walls and other debris. Unsurprisingly, the prison is said to be one of America’s most haunted places, with distorted, gurning faces being some of the most commonly reported sightings.

Craco, ItalyMany moons ago, Craco, in Italy’s southern province of Matera, wasn’t just a bustling town but a major tourist attraction, too. People came from far and wide to wander its winding streets and to pay their respects at Saint Nicola’s Church. Amazingly, the town dates back to 1060, when the surrounding area was owned by a local archbishop. A university had been established by the thirteenth century and by 1815 Craco was large enough to be divided into two districts: Torrevecchia and Quarter della Chiesa Madre. In the late nineteenth century poor agricultural conditions prompted many residents to leave, and in 1963, the majority of the remaining residents were evacuated due to a landslide. A handful clung on, but the town became completely abandoned after an earthquake in 1980. It’s doubled as a backdrop for several films, including The Passion of the Christ, starring Mel Gibson. Today, it’s also a popular stop-off for photographers, and was recently added to the World Monuments Fund’s watch list. One part of Italy which certainly hasn’t been abandoned is its spectacular coastline.
