Didn't go onto actual park but needed the "big pineapple" photo. Lots of parking and other tourists willing to take a pic for you.

I can't believe what's happened there, it looks like it's from a scene of a horror movie. Tired, worn out and derelict. This was the place to visit as a kid, now with a kid of my own I'm shocked to see it this way.
