summer getaway: (abandoned) waterfall action park.

on our way south to hatteras through rodanthe, we passed a dilapidated, deserted amusement park on the side of highway 12.  i made matt vow to stop on our way back so that i could take some photographs, and he made good on that promise (though admittedly, i initially came down with a case of cold feet when we returned — this place is cree-py).

some extensive googling informed us that this was a family-owned and much loved park until very recently, and once the familial patriarch passed away, his widow was unable to care for it and his children wanted nothing to do with it.  strangely enough, it is still listed as an active tourist attraction on many outer banks travel sites.
