A Creepy, Abandoned Westworld-Like Amusement Park In Japan

These are the shots of the now abandoned Western Village Old West Amusement Park taken by Tokyo Times photographer Lee Chapman. The park, which is a few hours north of Tokyo, opened in the 70's but closed in 2006, presumably because the hosts didn't live up to consumer expectations. You should have gotten Dr. Ford and Arnold on that shit! These are all Westworld references, by the way. I'm only on episode six though so don't ruin anything for me. "The people that populate the park are actually very realistic robots." What?! *smashes DVR* I knew there was something weird about them! "You learn that in the first minute of the show. People who haven't even watched the show already know that." Listen: I'm not very perceptive if that's what you're asking.

Keep going for a handful more shots.

Thanks to Joseph A, who visited Westworld and didn't do anything but sleep for three days. Hey, everybody vacations differently.
