    The people who paint offensive graffiti are just such scum. What makes them do it?

    Itís normally just children that donít know what else to draw... much prefer if they gave something a go, I get a bit bored of cocks scribbled on walls.

    This place is still accesible if you look around as we visited a few weeks ago however security is really tight. I would advise anyone travelling there to avoid going near the knightmare rollercoaster as security is pretty tight around this area but rest of area is accessible.

    We had a game of chase with security but they never ended up finding us its just a case of hiding until they have gone and then carrying on with your journey.

    Great pictures shame noone will buy the land and make it into the glory it once was.

    I'm gutted I never made it here 5 yrs ago as pics from around that time have so much to see. But hey you made it in there and got to capture what's still there so that's all that counts!
    I agree with Krela, you can politely say no without seeming like an arse, it's actually classed as criminal damage to force someone to delete there pics unwillingly, I've been asked to on a number of occasions, just recently too, I'm always polite when I say no as at the end of the day I'm in the wrong...getting nicked for a section 5 can be such a boreCamelot Theme Park / Chorley / 08/2017

    I desperately wanted to do Six Flags when I was in New Orleans last year but holy moly is it hard to get to. Went past it a few times when we were tripping up to Slidell. Next time I go might reach out to some locals.

    Great pictures! I visited here quite a while ago now and looks really empty now :( was the ghost ride still there or has it been taken apart?

    Go and stand in the naughty corner snailsford! Hahaha this made me laugh...getting caught after 3 minutes, you did bloody well mate I think security must have been told they are guarding plutonium rods, seems a rather extreme reaction Great to see an update of this place even though it's lookin very sad.

    I went here as a kid when I was living in the area - as well as Frontier Land in Morecambe.

    Regarding photo taking and being asked to delete them. Do you guys never use a smart-phone to take photos? (the quality of photos on my current smart-phone is actually better than my camera). Basically these days if you allow your settings to do so, nothing can be deleted as they get saved instantly somewhere in cyberspace. . . . . .

    I was asked to delete a photo of the Dragon in Brighton Pavilion last year . . . but I said it's impossible as it's already 'up there on the cloud'

    Basically once you've clicked that's it.

    Largely redundant point as there is no legal basis for anyone to make you delete your photos, not even the police can make you do it. Also if you can upload it to the cloud you can delete it from the cloud, it's only one extra step. Hardly an infallible fallback.
