Holy Land USA
Holy Land USA was once an 18 acre Bible-themed park located in Waterbury, Connecticut. The park had about 40,000 visitors a year until it closed in 1984 for renovations. Holy Land USA never opened back up again due to the death of owner John Greco in 1986. It has been abandoned ever since. The abandoned acres of the theme park have been watched over by groups of nuns for decades, but the place keeps getting more and more creepy as the park continues to deteriorate.
On top of the vandalism and eeriness the park gives off, a teenager was murdered on these abandoned grounds in 2010. Since then police records have shown that the amount of trespassers have been decreasing which just means abandoned Holy Land USA is as creepy and deserted as ever.

When the house was first built in the 1980s, there was over 400 feet of sand separating it from the Atlantic, with piles set in concrete 14 feet deep. Over the years, extreme coastal erosion from hurricanes and ocean wash had condemned the Inn to the fate of a watery grave in the Atlantic Ocean. Update someone has purchased the old inn and moved it here.
