    Default Camelot Theme Park / Chorley / 08/2017


    Hey guys and girls,

    Seen a few posts about this place on here, and decided to go and have a little snoop! Sometimes I'm up this way with work, so when I was due to go up there, I had it all planned and researched, but the first time I went in a nice gentleman tapped me on the shoulder as I was taking a pictures, safe to say he **** me up! I was caught in about 3 minutes so only took a few snaps, and was told to delete all the pictures I had took of the place, and got cautioned and told if I was seen again the police would be called.

    Fast forward a month and I'm going back there for work again. This time I'm prepared.

    Manage to sneak in around the back and decided as soon as I get in, take pictures of absolutely EVERYTHING. I decide to even go into the places that scare the **** out of me, and start running around in the dark buildings, taking pictures of smashed toilets and the lot!

    I tried to get down to the lower end of the park but ended up getting caught again, but decided to have a little game of chase with the security, and made it back out without getting told off...

    Anyway, heres a few snaps that I took of the place!

    If someone could put this post in Leisure Sites, as I appear to have been slightly blind when posting originally

    Every time someone posts this I get a little sad. Went here all the time as a wee one being from 20 miles away. Its going to the dogs now isn't it. My inner child is crying.

    I have fond memories of this place as a child, when I visited a while back it was a weird feeling to see it as it is now :(

    It seems to be that security mainly stays around the Knightmare ride as that is where most of us want to get to and they know it :D

    just for reference, no one can make you delete pics not even the police without a court order. did you ask to see his warrant card when he cautioned you? impersonating a police office is a criminal offence......

    No I didn't ask them for their warrant card or anything... I don't really want to be that type of person, if they catch me, I'll be as cooperative as possible within reason, they're only doing their job at the end of the day! If I was in their shoes I wouldn't want a mouthy little twerp shouting his rights at me Camelot Theme Park / Chorley / 08/2017

    There's a difference between being a mouthy twerp, and standing up for yourself. They're not "just doing their job" if they're trying to make you do things they have no right to make you do.

    I'm surprised that Camelot is still standing given the mania to build yet more houses on any spare land. Never went too it when open but interesting to see the decay and fast becoming the ' Six Flags ' ( an abandoned amusement park at New Orleans, U.S.A) of the UK.
