Photos of an abandoned Six Flags in New Orleans were a very popular internet thing earlier this year, and why not? Creepy, poignant, mesmerizing, it's all there. Everyone loves some good decay porn.

Which is why we liked this shot of Geauga Lake (circa 2010), which closed in September 2007. Via Reddit, this is how the the midway looks now. Sad. (The complete album of Geauga Lake shots is here.)
