Abandoned amusement park

These are the chilling images of an abandoned amusement park that shut down after a boy lost his arm on a ride. Dadipark amusement park, Dadizele, Belgium, closed its doors more than a decade ago after a young boy had his arm ripped off on the Nautic Jet water ride.

Kris Van de Sande, 28, captured the eerie pictures at the fairground, where rides were left to rust and covered in graffiti. The freelance photographer, from Hasselt, Belgium, said the whole park had been invaded by nature after being left untouched since closing 12 years ago. (Caters News)
