I'd give it a glowing review on Yelp.

I'd ask what kind of moron dragged my ass to a theme park in a pandemic and get the fark away.

/and then leave a radiant review of it on Trip Advisor

before opening the hotels inubiannd the theme park in 2001.

Those are some old hotels.

You would have to be unstable to go critical on this
 
2020-10-17 11:51:32 PM  
I thought the theme park was going to open to the public for real, but apparently it's only in beta release.
 
2020-10-17 11:55:27 PM  
I'd say "not great, not terrible" to the idea of building an amusement park there.

cretinbob: Sounds like farking fun


In all seriousness, as long as it's never been used and there's no radiation present, it sounds fun as hell. You could do a helluva lot with this as your jumping off point.

There's one in Washington (Satsop) that was never completed and partially turned into offices.

I think I've got a few photos from when I cycled through there. I'll check, post them later, I'm on mobile now.

They might as well utilize the space, I mean, it's just waiting for something to be put there. The biggest advantage is that it was never functional so no Radioactive ghost floating about.
 
2020-10-18 12:41:22 AM  
If it was never used, then it's no different than any other abandoned construction site.
 
2020-10-18 12:54:56 AM  
I'd say Washington state finally got it right

*checks article*

God damnit.

There's an interesting documentary about a German reactor that was fully built, they may have even done dry runs, and blammo- the government switched the switch off.  Billions pissed down the hole.

If they did not light up the park at night with softly glowing green lights then I would be extremely disappointed.

Well to be fair, that 'blammo' was the Chernoboyl meltdown occurring.

Nuke plants have beautiful grounds. The ones I worked at had stocked fishing ponds for employees to use.

Welcome to Homerland.. The underacheiving brat at the entrance should have told you that the park is closed.

This one.

"Wunderland Kalkar, located near the Dutch border, was built at the former nuclear power plant SNR-300 in 1985, costing an estimated $5bn.
It never opened for its original purpose nuclear power plant as one year later, the Chernobyl disaster happened, which led to a number of protests."

Ah, thought you were referring to the German Government shiatting down all nuclear power plants after Fukushima.

Oh ouch yah, so they mothball this one in the 80s due to nuclear energy fears, then later on built even more of them and then never use those ones either?  I'd be a pretty sour kraut too if that much money got spent, twice, on plants that've never been used.

Why the hell did Fark filter that? I checked the article expecting something like that word for stingy or numbers that could resemble the n word but it was just a number.  Maybe Drew hates the Year of the Consulship of Dexter and Messalla

It was never used. What's the issue? Unless you find radiation at the site, it's no different than any other.

Now that is a fun farking bike ride! It looks like there's likely some really great hiking there as well.  Add that to the list of reasons I need to get out to Washington......

Thanks for posting them!
