The locals call it

Silent Hill. It is an abandoned amusement park in on the top of a hill in Rome, Italy called LunEur or Luna Park. Built in 1953 it was closed in 2008. I cannot find many pictures of the park now, and after finding the few I did, I would really love to see more.

This first one is of what I am guessing is a haunted ride (from reading about the park, it appears they had several of them.) Very creepy entrance.

The next one is of the Ferris wheel to give you a look at the slight amount of decay that is happening.

I still cannot get over the fact that there were several haunted, if a park even has one I am thrilled.

The pictures are from this site and there are several other shots worth looking at.


  1. geez, I love this...wish I could replicate it and put it at the front of a little haunted house at halloween. hell, I wouldn't mind having it year-round!

  2. There's been some amazing Italian horror movies over the years. I wonder if this was meant to reflect that.
