Deserted Marineland Video

 This video of the deserted Marineland was recently posted to YouTube.  It provides a ton of detail on the abandoned theme park.  The best part is that the Sky Tower is still there.  It's very difficult to find photos or video of the Tower.


The video will not display on this site, but trust me, it's great!
