The other night my friends and i went to Splendid China, an abandon theme park in kissimmee, Florida. The park which was open from 1993-2003 was owned by the Chinese government. The park was not able to keep up with the other theme parks of the area and shut down. The local news station on may 15th 2013 announced that the park would be demolished within the month, so my friends and i decided to explore. The park is gated up and to get in one go through the woods and over one of the side gates. We got there about 7:30 when the sun was setting.
It was 8 of us, 4 boys , 4 girls. After climbing under the gate we started to walk towards the park. It quickly got dark and i can speak for myself when i say it was terrifying. All the buildings were overgrown with wines and tagged up. There were sounds of all sorts of animals. we had one small flashlight on a Darth Vader Lego key chain ( we didn’t think about flashlights oops!) . It was fascinating. At night is was very hard to see. We did not take many photos, i was afraid that the flash might alert someone we were in the park, or worse something.
We ran out of the park, jumped over a fence, and got as far away as possible, when we looked back and saw someone with a flashlight pointed at us from afar. We weren’t sure if it was the police which sometimes patrol the area, if it was a squatter that lived in one of the abandon buildings which reside the park, a drug dealer, or just another person looking to explore this wonder before it was torn down. BUT WE WEREN’T FINDING OUT.
When i got home we uploaded the pictures and this one stood out in particular. You can see eyes are peaking through.Now i don’t know what it was. All i know is that, anything is possible.
