Walt Disney’s World Rivery Country in Florida. This now abandoned waterpark opened in 1976 and closed in 2001, due to stronger state regulations involving water parks and pools and low numbers of visitors. Since then slides and other attractions are left in this wilderness. It was the first waterpark opened on the famous Walt Disney World Resort site in Orlando.
L'Aquatic Sitges, Spain - Just half-an-hour’s drive from Barcelona is a water park that’s probably more famous in its derelict state than it ever was while still in use.

According to one rumor, the wave machine sucked a child under! We shudder to think!
