Long Description:
Besides all the traditional attractions of an amusement park, it also featured a theater and plenty of restaurants and bars. It was part of the city, until the City Hall ordered it's closure due to lack of security and plans to change its area. Since then, the place got wiped out. Every single structure was removed and the park remains with its doors closed. There's no official info of the move to somewhere else.

On this site, there's the confirmation of it being defunct: (visit link)
