    Link Theme Park Map Site

    Here's another cool link from BOING BOING, a site that has pics of various Theme Park maps (from 1931 to 2009).

    Great link. I've always wanted to try my hand at an amusement park type map.

    Wow. THESE. ARE. AWESOME.


    It's like every happy memory of childhood all rolled up in a bunch of maps. I always loved the maps of the themeparks when we used to go as kids...

    I'm really partial to the 1931 Belle Vue map. I wonder if this poster of the 1939 World's fair would count.

    Cool - the Great Adventure maps from the 70s brought back a lot of memories.

    Cool! 'Cept there is no map for Playland (the local amusement area here in Vancouver):

    Lotte World in Seoul South Korea (menus are in Korean, but the map is pretty cool!) http://www.lotteworld.com/03_map/worldmap.asp?mn=3100

    But the Best Amusement park I have been to in Korea was Seoul Land, but sadly I cannot find a map for it
