“Lawless found it relatively easy to sneak into most of the abandoned parks, but some proved more challenging. He had to climb up Beech Mountain in North Carolina to capture images of a creepy Wizard of Oz–themed park, complete with its own yellow brick road. There were occasional legal problems: Disney threatened to sue him for copyright infringement after he posted images online of the company’s old River Country park in Florida. (Skyhorse Publishing included them in the book anyway.) To make the decaying parks look even more ominous, he shot most of them either right before or after a rainstorm.”
