Another one from Burbex, here’s a rather depressing snapshot of the long abandoned Emperor’s View Hotspring and Ski Slope, which has neither hot springs nor ski slopes, just a bunch of sad animal statues and “various marine-themed slides and chutes” emptying out into empty swimming pools (kind of a sub–theme for us this week).
The weirdest thing about this park is its location inside Jing Jin New Town, a satellite town between Beijing and the nearby port city of Tianjin meant to absorb residential overflow and create a three-way mega-megacity the government is calling Jingjingji. They built 3,000 villas in Jing Jin New Town, but nobody came.
Well, at least all the ghosts in that town have a fun theme park to haunt.
