The reason why it is a Japan's unofficial Disneyland is because it was supposed to be a official Disney park: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nara_Dreamland#History it because the deal fell through, but similarities remain.

Indeed, & I'm glad the English version of Wikipedia finally reflects that.

Japanese news article. Nara Dreamland's owners & the City of Nara try to figure out what to do with the park. Nice footage of the park when running & some visitor statistics.

week or so ago I looked up Photoplay music on YouTube, & found this:

For some reason it made my day. It's a wonderful mix of emotions; joy, serenity, sadness, relief, peace, all at once. Sort of an audio version of returning home.

88 Train, a loop/corkscrew coaster built by Meisho Amusements for Childern's Grand Park in Korea. The coaster's been removed since this video was taken.

Announcement of a public auction. The government of Nara, Japan was having trouble selling off Nara Dreamland after they took it for back taxes. The land had been rezoned, so it could only be use for "schools & welfare facilities."

Rather plain video, with sad footage of the abandoned, vandalized park. From Nara TV, apparently this is their official channel.

The closing show Nara Dreamland put on the last day the park was open. I wish I knew what they were saying, but Google thinks their speaking Portuguese, so the translation function won't work.
