My family went to Disney when I was 9 or 10 years old.  River Country was, by far, my favorite part of the trip.  I always wondered what happened to it.  Thanks for posting!

It's not Traction Park, that's for sure
"I thought it over and have decided to say: Your comment is quite possibly one of the stupidest comments I have ever read on Slowtwitch, which is kind of like saying, “this might just be the worst 3-bean salad I’ve ever had at Sizzler.“

This whole thread is a metaphor for the open pub, you see. Wasn't that clever?

Abandoned theme parks and ski areas evoke strong nostalgia in me.

One that never was. Abandoned is an interesting series, they cover everything from the decline of Blockbuster to various malls and department stores that went under.

I stayed up until 2:30am watching all of the Abandoned videos.  Crazy...but good.
