In 1989 the Oakwood Amusement park was built. It started out as a small family owned park with a mainstreet, and a ferris wheel. The family had to sell the park due to money troubles. A buyer was found not to long after. He wanted to expand the park with a major attraction, A Schwarzkopf looping roller coaster named Century. Century was a big hit although it was a major investment. The park fell into again money troubles. Oakwood was put up for sale for the second time in its life. A buyer was never found and 15 years later this is what has become of it.
Looking out above the trees, some large structures can be seen.
This is Oakwood Amusement Park. The entrance, and Market Street's buildings have faded. It's not very secure. So I ventured inside.
The old bell tower. It has lost most of its exterior stucco, and the wood framing is all that is left.
Looking over to the left of Market Street is Century the roller coaster that tossed this park into abandonment.
It was a thrilling ride, Century was originally red and white. It is now faded and rusting.
The coaster looms over the trashed pathway below.
One of Century's trains. Stuck on the final brake run, left to rust.
Well whats this? Someone else is exploring the park, but what for?
