    Default Southport Pleasureland

    I had a late-night creep around to see what was still there. Dismantling of the park is well underway, with the Traumatizer long gone. The Cyclone is still standing (what are the plans for it?) and the Ghost Train made for some interesting exploring, not least of all when I turned a corner and pointed my torch at a mirror and scared the crap out of myself!

    A shame it's closed down, but I suppose it just wasn't making enough money. Never did get round to visiting it when open - anyone know what the plans for the site are now? A sad end to what always appeared to be a popular (and historic) seaside attraction - lets just hope this isn't repeated in Blackpool and Brighton...

    Snappel, many thanks. I missed this thread I don't know why, but there u go . The pics are fantastic especially the one sitting on top of the Cyclone. You have probably achieved everythin I wanted to do as a curious spooked kid. There's nowt more eiry (spelling?) than walking through a disused theme park at night, scary stuff and well done

    I am shaking my head in complete amazement , the ghost train . Are there any stories about the attractions being genuinely haunted?
