What's more magical than an amusement park? Easy. A defunct amusement park. Which is what this site has to offer. In a sort of defunct way. Better, at least for us because of our Florida roots and because we like actual information, is this page: Florida's Lost Tourist Attractions, which has tons of information about such wonderful former attractions as Splendid China, Xanadu, and, a personal childhood favorite, Miami's Planet Ocean, an attraction so seemingly obscure that we'd swear it existed only in our mind if not for the photo below (it's ice, by the way, and, yes, we touched it, yo.)...

Oh, and here are myriad more related links, in case you're really into this crap.
