Trinity Loop Amusement Park

Railway themed amusement park incorporating an actual, by then defunct Newfoundland Railway train loop. Was heavily damaged by a hurricane and flooding in the 1990's and nearly completely wiped out by Hurricane Igor. Due to increasing vandalism it will probably be dismantled soon for the sake of safety. Up in the woods in the middle of nowhere near Trinity, Newfoundland, Canada.

Re: Trinity Loop Amusement Park

When used properly and responsibly, drones can provide some wonderfully beautiful shots that wouldn't have been previously possible without a helicopter. But even then, drones can get closer to the subject matter than a helicopter can.

This is a pretty place, even with the decaying buildings. It's a shame that it can't be restored, but I hope they at least reclaim it back to a more-natural state once it is all removed.

Precisely.

I just hope they restore it to a natural state. The drone shots really demonstrated how beautiful that place is. If you can't revive it, restore it.
