nara_dreamland_01

Nara Dreamland (奈良ドリームランド or Nara dorīmurando) is a well known shut down theme park located on Nara-ken, Nara-shi, Hōrensahoyama, 2丁目1−1in Japan.

Nara Dreamland opened in 1961, inspired by Disneyland in California. For 45 years its central fantasy castle, massive wooden rollercoaster Aska, and corkscrewing Screwcoaster pulled in the big crowds. By then though it was outdated, and dying a slow death as Universal Studios Japan (built 2001) in nearby Osaka sucked all the oxygen out of the business.
It closed its doors permanently in 2006.
