Birds Eye Bando 3

In the 80's and 90's Skinners Wet 'n Wild Water Park saw a lot of action. The water slides were a popular summer attraction for families around the area. The slides have been closed for over a decade now, but it's still a popular attraction today... Photographers, graffiti artists and general riff-raff flock here to explore the dilapidated remains of this old summer hot spot. Each day the structure slips a little bit closer to only existing in our memories. Here you'll get a different perspective of the the expired water park, hopefully sparking some memories of summers past. Hope you enjoy.

BONUS: Here is a video I found on Youtube of a Skinners Wet 'n Wild commercial from when the park was operational. Potential nostalgia warning!

Birds Eye Bando

My drone came in the mail about a month ago. I've had a bit of play time with it. I've used it in a couple stories I've done for Global News, but it's usually only a shot or two. I was trying to think of something I could do exclusively with the drone and this is what I came up with: BIRDS EYE BANDO. I love checking out these abandoned places but sometimes these locations can be unsafe to explore. This is where the drone comes in! It is much easier to explore these sites safely with the drone. It also offers up a unique perspective of these structures, angles not often seen, which will hopefully breath some life into these neglected locations.

For the first BIRDS EYE BANDO I explore Bergen Cut-Off Bridge.
