    Default Camelot Theme Park, Chorley, June 2013

    Visited with CloakedUp and Nickynackynoo.

    After recceing Oswaldtwistle Palladium nearby and finding the access to high up and being put off by a foreboding set of pikeys n the park next door, we decided to have a look at this. Welcome to Crapalot, a rather grim and depressing place. This was a nice little gander for the company if nothing else, but throughout the whole time I was there it just felt so superficial and dingy; a vague attempt at making this an attractive place for family days out. Obviously it has been derelict for a few months now, but I couldn't help but think 'what a crap place this is!' Don't get me wrong, I don't mind theme parks in general but this just failed to tickle my fancy; beats me why people are so keen on doing this now, but hey ho let's go along with it anyway. On the other hand, seeing a mass of droids dumped up in one corner of the park was shall we say, interesting?

    Having heard very mixed rumours about security, I was somewhat sceptical about how easy this place would be; active guards and more IR cameras than you can shake a tripod at (yes it's a rubbish pun) were mentioned. One of these was true, but we came to the conclusion that the latter were not observed. As for security, we saw and heard no-one but it's quite an open area so it's difficult to tell whether there were any present or not.

    That's about all I have to say so far, so here's what I have.

    The murder scene

    Pirate Galleon

    The dragon

    Bluebell bottom

    The showground

    The Haunted House

    Give it time and it'll be impossible to tell what's graffiti and what it used to be like.

    Own up, who did the hate!

    The rollercoaster

    Be under no illusion, I'm not afraid of heights but if it's windy and I feel like I'm gonna fall I get absolutely terrified! Still, I just about managed to get up here, gripping the rail ever tightly.

    On a final note, apologies for being cynical about this place, but it's difficult to know what else to make of this place.

    Yours as always,

    TBM x

    Still looks worth a visit, the haunted house and rides seem in pretty good condition. The mannequin murder scene is a bit dodgy though!

    Looks fantastic! The whole mannequin bit puts me off a little though, freak the living hell outta me!
    Great report, kudos for braving the wind on top the coaster.
