Libertyland status in August of 2007

Since there’s been some news lately about Zippin Pippin I figured I’d drive out to Libertlyland and see what’s left… I hadn’t been in over a year so I figured things would be different, and they were, a little bit.

As I drove up, it was obvious that the park was really beginning to get that “abandoned” park feel.

[image]
Even the Creative Arts building was looking worse that it usually does.

[image]
You can see here where they’re using the park’s entrance plaza as a storage area for the fair’s ticket booths.

[image]
At least the welcome sign is still up…

[image]
Same as last year, the Libertyland signage is still barely visible.

[image]
Windows are busted out all over the place… it looks pretty pathetic.

[image]
The former spot of Rebellion, now at Ghost Town in the Sky…

[image]
Yeah thanks for the up-keep…

[image]
The entrance building is skinnier than I thought…

[image]
It was pretty hot outside.

The entrance plaza is also being used as table city until the fair.

[image]
Yeah, ticket booths out the frame…

[image]
We’re not….

Top of the train station.

More of the crappy fairgrounds.

Zippin Pippin, all that’s really left.

Still in near-operating condition.

This hill produced some nice airtime.

The turnaround.

[image]
Scoop’s had ice cream and stuff like that.

[image]
The turnaround after the lift… It’s taller in person.

[image]
Everything’s so overgrown it looks like the ride is in a forest.

[image]
Third turnaround from across the parking lot.

[image]
Yeah I wonder what they’re using that for…

[image]
More airtime hills….

[image]
Lesson for the younger folks: don’t drive and take pictures…

[image]
I hate this privacy mesh crap that they’ve put up… they even took my sign down!

[image]
It even had a protective covering, haha.

[image]
All that’s left of Revolution…
