Video: Beijing's abandoned Wonderland theme park

Take a video tour around the unfinished and dilapidated Chinese park

Beijing may have managed to pull off a marvellous Olympic Games event in 2008, but it's failed to finish an amusement park on its outskirts.

The Wonderland theme park now looks like a Disney wasteland, with abadoned castle and other attractions that are maintained mostly for show. The castle walls are crumbling, doors are falling off their hinges and, while the gardens are kept nice, it seems the efforts are mostly for keeping up appearances.

The land the park sits on has been returned to farmland, and is also used as a dump.
