Abandoned amusement park: Taman Festival

Abandoned amusement park: Taman FestivalTaman Festival is a large amusement park in Sanur that was never completed.


Since the park – and its crocodile pit – was abandoned 14 years ago, it has literally crumbled, a sad reminder of an abandoned potential that was never realised.

Now, with shaky buildings threatening to fall at any moment, missing roofs and treacherous steps, locals refer to the old park as a “ghost town”.


But it’s not just about the possible wandering spirits that will leave your hair standing in fear.


Rumour has it that the crocodiles left in the park eventually resorted to cannibalism, so if you ever visit, do take special care to avoid the old crocodile pit and pools filled with polluted, black water.
