Berlin wants to bring back amusement park abandoned for 13 years

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

Abandoned in 2001, the grounds of Spreepark amusement park in Berlin, Germany are littered with decaying dinosaurs, crumbling rides and overgrown roller coaster tracks.

Earlier this year, the city of Berlin purchased the lease for the land the bankrupt amusement park sits on, according to Smithsonian Magazine.

They're owned by NBCUniversal, so I'm sure it's just content sharing for page views.

Has anyone seen the movie Hanna? (with Saoirse Ronan). There was a long scene filmed inside an abandoned amusement park, and these photos look a lot like the scenes in the movie. Could this be the park used in the filming??

Yeah it's true! Just checked the wikipedia page for Hanna (film). It does say Spreepark was used as a filming location. Those were very cool scenes filmed at that park; it really created a unique atmosphere, which contrasted what was going on in the movie. Highly recommend that movie!
