Footage of an abandoned Wonderland has been released as nightmare fuel
RIP The Beastie.
It feels like forever but it's actually been 14-odd years since Sydney's Wonderland was a thing.
Yup! The theme park (billed colloquially as Movie World's povo cousin) closed in 2004 - to the dismay of everyone not currently living on the Goldie - with owners citing everything from the bird flu to September 11 for its closure.
Which is a damn shame 'cause Wonderland was Good Bloody Stuff and worth a trip when your cousins were in town or as a reward for being on your best behaviour - Hanna-Barbera Land in particular really hit the spot.
While most of us have forgotten Wonderland - and were too young to ever really know its location/cost/adult pain point #3, so it kind of faded away - it seems a few people, including YouTube Channel Abandoned Oz, still have the site on their radar.
