(Newser) – Abandoned theme parks are always creepy, but there's something extra, super creepy about Holy Land USA, a decaying biblical-themed park in Connecticut which shuttered 30 years ago and is now being sold for the bargain basement price of $350,000. The park was once a hot-spot in the 1960s and '70s, but fell into disrepair after the owner passed away in 1986. To complete the horror movie cliche, it was the site of an actual murder in 2010, the Daily Mail reports.

But hey—$350,000 for 9,472 square feet! In addition to a "single family home," the lucky buyer will inherit crumbling "replicas" of Bethlehem, Jerusalem, and the Garden of Eden, and huge displays of bible verses.

we have a bunch of wackos here in northern KY (Petersburg, KY) who have a theme park. "answers in genesis" it is called. the park has gone gangbusters since it opened drawing 3 times their expected/predicted attendance. they believe the earth is only 6000 years old. the bible has an answer and explaination for everything and man co-existed with dinosaurs. all employees must sign a pledge acknowledging that they believ in all this and discard anything we know today as science. for halloween i want to get a group together with dinosaur cutouts and have a "Raptors of the Rapture rodeo" outside their main gates. down near lexington, KY they are working on a noah's ark theme park. the concept of god was invented by humans as a way to control others and also to support the lie that no matter what an A$$hole you were in this life that all can be forgiven wiped away clean and your good to go in the next life.
