Last ride

Metroland Gateshead

Metroland to close

The New Metroland is an indoor funfair at Gateshead’s Metrocentre, packed full with all of the usual rides, such as this roller coaster. Unfortunately it’s time to grab those last rides before the Metroland finally closes on the 20th. of this month to make way for a new multi-screen cinema.

I’ll show one more picture from Metroland tomorrow before returning to South Shields pictures.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 55mm lens, 1/250 second, f4.5, iso 400

  1. Our amusement park at Seattle Center, which began in 1962 for the World’s Fair that year is being closed soon, too. On the one hand it’s sad to see it go, but at the same time it’s also sad seeing the rides and midway quite empty much of the time. I suspect video games and the internet have changed the demographics somewhat.
