Abandoned Spreepark, Berlin. From 1969 to 1989, Cultural Park Plänterwald was East Germany's premiere amusement park. Later rechristened "Spreepark," it eventually closed in 2002, after the park's operator picked up and left for Peru . He and his son were later arrested for trying to smuggle 167 kilograms of cocaine back to Germany inside the "Flying Carpet" carousel. Recently released from prison, the owner is thought to live somewhere within the park's mysterious grounds.
