Like a dodgy acid trip or a Oompa Loompa village, this broken down theme park in New Jersey is enough to give you the shivers. Modelled on a Germanic Village, the candy coloured houses look like something out of a Grimm Fairytale. Fairytale Forest was built built by German Immigrant Paul Woehle in 1957 in Oakridge, NJ.
Woehle handmade each of the structures and they were appreciated by generations of kids. Until he died in the 1994 at the age of 96. His legacy was largely abandoned as the park was sold to a storage company and most of the vibrantly coloured buildings removed from the park.
