Nice to know the Sunny Fields Resort offered alternate recreational options when the weather wasn’t so sunny. Whether or not the weather played a role in the closure and abandonment of the place is unknown – we only have Flickr user Boris Baden0v‘s haunting images to show its dusty status circa May of 2014.
PanAm Air Lanes
The old bowling alley in Fort Gulick, Panama Canal Zone, was renamed “Bolos Espinar” when the Army turned Fort Gulick over to the government of Panama in late 1984. Evidently the locals weren’t big “bolos” fans as in 2015, the place still sits abandoned, growing ever more sun-bleached with the passage of time.
Spores & Recreation
Shuttered during the great wave of Catskills resort closings decades ago, Homowack Lodge briefly reopened as a religious girls’ summer camp before closing for good in 2009 after state Department of Health inspectors documented a host of safety violations including extensive toxic mold.
If you think this pin is big, you oughta see the ball! Kudos to Instagram user Shane Thoms for these slightly creepy images of an abandoned bowling alley in Japan.
