Been there for a short walk. It's run down and so sorry that they let it go this way. Give it a new fresh paint.

This is a run down free theme park with over 1000+ sculptures. It feels very 1980's. Some images are disturbing and not recommended for kids. Some sculptures are very "dark". I am glad I saw it, but came out a little confused on what I...More
