Arkansas makes list for creepy abandoned theme parks

Posted: Updated:

(KATV) Dogpatch USA was once a thriving theme park right here in Arkansas. But years of lawsuits and legal battles forced it to close in 1993 after 25 years.

Now, Dogpatch has been given the dubious distinction of being one of the "creepiest abandoned theme parks" by the Weather Channel.

The Marble Falls Park featured rides and attractions that were based on the comic strip "li'l abner".    

Dogpatch has been in a state of disrepair since its closing. The Weather Channel gave it a "creepy factor" of seven.
