Beijing Amusement Park based around the Floating Dragon Lake used to be the premier theme park in Beijing attracting 2.4 million visitors a year.
It was famous for its roller coasters, 4D cinema, and the biggest Ferris Wheel in the capital.
Now all that remains is the Ferris Wheel which dominates the landscape, and the ruined remains of the aquarium which has lots of graffiti.
The site is sealed off from the public, but a quick hop, leap and jump make it pretty easy to enter.
The site is connected by a series of bridges between each of the islands, and while most of them are padlocked, you can just jump into the dried out lake bed and run to the islands.
The aquarium and the horror house are easy to get into, but not much remains, but the Ferris Wheel is safely contained behind a metal fence. It slowly turns creaking in the wind.
The central island is assessable by a Disneyesque bridge with turrets and a huge gate.
Once you are past the gate, you have free rein over the park, the security guards are far too lazy to chase you this far.
Beyond the bridge is the aquarium and the horror house. Pedlo boats line the empty basin of the lake also the lakeside.
This is a perfect Scooby-Doo location as you poke around the horror house and listen to the creaking of the Ferris Wheel. The site is a little bare now, which is why Burbex is giving Floating Dragon Amusement Park a B+ grade.
