    Default Marvels Amusement Park ? Scarborough (pic heavy)


    Took these 30-08-2009 Not really my thing but I remembered going there when it was open so I thought why not :)Only history I found was
    " Until its closure in 2000, Marvels Amusement Park sat on the hill behind Atlantis and could be reached by one of two cable cars (the pylons for these are still standing). It is now derelict with the rollercoaster and other rides having been relocated to other parks"

    Some of it has been redeveloped since these were took

    Impressive before and after! I didn't realise the open air theatre development had come so far. We used to go there for It's a Knockout shows when I was a kid.
