River Country was Disney World’s very first waterpark, that operated in the Orlando area between 1976 and 2005. Since shutting its doors about 10 years ago, it’s been left to decay, transforming into what looks like a lost jungle civilization.
Photographer Seph Lawless gained access to the park recently and offers us a view into this abandoned monument to late 20th-century mass-market leisure. Slides sit consumed by moss and vines, and the whole site appears to have transformed into a swamp.
Afterwards, check out Laurent Kronental’s eerily dystopian scenes of brutalist Parisian tower blocks.
