Why would someone abandon this little gem?  Maybe it was a love affair gone bad and it turned out not to be the "Love Bug" they thought it was.  Or maybe the owner just took a notion, on a dare, to drive it out onto the beach and got stuck in the sand.  No, actually, it's neither -- if you look at the background, you can see fire or is it a volcano?  They must have had to run for their lives so they abandoned the bug because they panicked and got stuck in the sand.

Abandoned Rollercoaster, Nara Dreamland, Japan

This is just one of the roller coasters in this abandoned theme park in Japan.  This last abandoned theme park was supposed to have been demolished but yet it still stands as you can see from this old coaster luminously in the horizon.  Named the Screw Coaster, which is very befitting considering its appearance, this roller coaster has become quite rusty.  Nara Dreamland was a copy of the original Disneyland except due to money issues, they did not use the same characters but instead used less interesting characters. Another abandoned roller coaster at Nara Dreamland is the wooden roller coaster, Aska.  From the top of it, you can get a great view of the park.
