    The 38 Most Haunting Abandoned Places On Earth

    Christy Kenneally describes some of the abandoned sites on the list of the 37 Most Abandoned places on earth:

    Pripyat (and Chernobyl) are the ones most people will have heard something about; the city was abandoned in 1986 at the time of the nuclear accident.   Interesting to watch it go back to nature like the Mayan pyramids I saw in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico- the whole economy relied on water and the water disappeared – at one time this was one of the most advanced civilisations in the world.

    Gulliver's Travels lasted only ten years in Kawaguchi!! Despite the fact that it was at the foot of Mt Fuji and in a prime location with the massive tourist run off from the holy mountain.

    Six Flags New Orleans Jazzland Theme Park is still abandoned and looks like something out of a Steven King horror movie. The theme park was damaged and closed after Hurricane Katrina
