Gulliver's Kingdom, Japan

The park opened in 1997 but it was open for barely four years. Imagine an amusement park with no major rides; no wonder people weren’t going. Another factor that contributed to its eventual demise was the fact that the theme park was built next to a so called “Suicide Forest,” which was the place with the highest number of suicides in the country. Also, the park was close to the infamous Kamikuishiki village, known for being the location of the Aum Shinrikyo doomsday cult’s headquarters and nerve gas production facility.
