Okpo Land

Okpo Land is one of many closed amusement parks in Asia that has a tragic past related to one ride in particular. The duck-themed roller coaster ride, one of the main attractions to the park, is known to have caused one fatality in the 90s for which no apology or compensation were given, and the ride continued to operate.

In 1999, the ride claimed its second life. A young girl was thrown to the ground when a cart derailed and capsized at speed. Following this incident, the park’s owner disappeared overnight, again leaving a family no apology or compensation. The park was deemed unsafe and was shuttered the same year. The capsized cart from which the child plummeted to her death was left in place, along with all the other rides, hanging over the edge of the ride’s tracks.
