1. 大家对于迪士尼乐园的印象,通常都是笑声不断、充满欢乐回忆的地方,但是接下来这一组照片可能会让你改观!

River Country was Disney World's first water park. It opened in Orlando, Florida, in 1976 and officially closed its doors in 2005. #RIP.

 

2. River Country是迪士尼第一座水上游乐园,1976年于佛罗里达州奥兰多市开幕。营业了29年后,迪士尼在2005年的时候宣布永久关闭。

At its peak, River Country boasted four water slides, a sand-bottom lake, an white water rapids, and a tubing river.
 
目前奥兰多市的另两座水上乐园 Typhoon Lagoon和Blizzard Beach仍持续营业。 

 

3. 造景仿马克吐温时期的特色的River Country,在营运高峰的时候,园内有四座滑水道、一座人造湖和人造河,每年都有许多游客前往度假。直到1980年,River Country发生了一件骇人事件,一名11岁的男孩在湖中嬉水时感染阿米巴虫(俗称食脑变形虫)而死亡。

The park was not without its problems: In 1980, an 11-year-old died from a bacterial disease he picked up while swimming in the park's lake.
 
事实上,当时佛罗里达州的水源便一直存有阿米巴病毒的问题,这种阿米巴虫喜欢寄生于温暖的脏水中。因此,经过死亡事件后,这座水上乐园的人气逐渐下滑,游客不再到访,最后走向停业的结局。

4. 不过11年后,也就是River Country成立的40周年,一名摄影师Seph Lawless取得入园摄影资格,以镜头带领观众,一窥这座曾经繁华的世外桃源风貌。

River County was left to languish and deteriorate naturally for the last 11 years, and photographer  was able to gain access and shoot some creepy but mega compelling photos of the park's lost grandeur.

 

5. 从照片上可见,这座被世人遗弃11年的水上乐园,慢慢地回到大自然的样态。

Next month marks the park's 40th anniversary, and Lawless wanted to chronicle the once great park's slow return to nature.

 

6. 这里仿佛是一个自史前遗留下来的怪诞沼泽。

The images evoke an eerie, swampy, almost prehistoric vibe.

 

7. 摄影师Lawless表示,「进到园内后感觉好像经历了一趟诡异的迪士尼冒险旅程,但这里却是如此超现实、美丽的。」

"Being inside the abandoned park felt like a creepy real-life Disney ride," Lawless told BuzzFeed of his visit to the abandoned park. "It was surreal and really beautiful."

8. 废弃的滑水道模样:

9. 而Lawless似乎对滑水道情有独钟:「它们被藤蔓、花木整个覆蓋住,这绝对是我这辈子拍摄过最美丽的东西之一。」

The waterslides were especially moving for Lawless. "They were completely covered in vines and flowers. I think it was just about the most beautiful thing I've ever witnessed on any project I've done."

 

10. 人造瀑布:

An faux waterfall stands empty now.

11. 荒废的桥上还留着过去乘客的帽子。

Somebody left a top hat in the middle of one of the park's rope bridges.

 

12. 过去的泳池也成了水藻生态池。

The Upstream Plunge Pool is covered with algae now.

 

13. 不过,以前游客跳水嬉戏的木造设施却没什么改变。

And now the park's diving bridges and platforms are still.

 

14. 看着照片实在很难想像,过去这个地方曾经挤满了上千名游客。

It's hard to believe that at one time, this place was teeming with thousands of tourists.

15. Lawless 分享,「迪士尼乐园某方便象征了美国的资本主义,所以有些人应该对这个逐渐没落、回归自然的世界很感兴趣。」

"I think Disney World symbolizes an ugly side of capitalism in America, and I think because of that some people would enjoy seeing it crumble to the ground," Lawless told BuzzFeed.

 

16. Lawless 分享,「所以与其看到这里没落,我更希望人们看见它的美。」

"I think that's why I want people to see the beauty in these images above all else."

觉得摄影师说的也很有道理,用不同的角度看待没落的水上乐园回归大自然,也许反而能给人更多省思呢!
