Sadly, the water park has closed its doors forever and has long lain deserted. There’s something eerie about abandoned places in general, but defunct and dried up water parks seem especially creepy.

Yet, despite all this, the ten aqua parks we have found exude a strange fascination that puts one under their spell.
