Long lost Miami tourist attractions


I am from Miami Beach originally and one of my biggest regrets was missing out on riding the steeplechase ride at the lost amusement park, Pirates World.


I knew a lot of other oddball attractions such as the still existing Monkey Jungle and Coral Castle. I was able get down and visit the circa 1930s attraction Parrot Jungle before and "moved" and became the toned down "Jungle Island".

Today I learned something fascinating with the discovery of LOST CAVERNS. I have an affinity for caverns where I can ride in boats and have done so at places like the Lost Sea Adventure. Considering that Miami is at zero feet above sea level, the idea that a "lost cavern" existed is quite mindblowing. Apparently, it was essentially a sinkhole, and they had some "trained wild ducks" which flow around peoples heads like pigeons. You can see some photos here and here.

This led to a few other discoveries. As I mentioned earlier, there is/was the well known parrot jungle, but there was also the Rare Bird Farm. Completely forgotten during my lifetime, even though only a few years before I was born they had supplied the monkey that went into space. Info here and here. The latter is long document with pictures a few pages down.

Winkel & Balktick Present...
STRANDED III: THE FORBIDDEN CITY
Saturday, September 4, 2010, 10pm-sunrise

= THE STORY =
It was a late midsummer night. Winkel & Balktick searched block after block for the nocturnal paradise of their dreams. With each passing hour, the hope that the bottle service swindles would give way to dens of pleasure and imagination faded.
As they were about to concede defeat, they noticed faint emanations of celestial sound and light from a nearby waterfront street. As they drew near, the sensations of synesthesia grew stronger. Finally, with heads full of kaleidoscopic colors and tones, a man in a red silk robe greeted them with a mischievous grin. “We’ve been expecting you.”
The robed gatekeeper threw open an imperial steel gate. What they beheld next brought tears of joy to their eyes: A clandestine metropolis of dynastic grandeur and libertine attractions. Scantily-clad citizens and eccentric shopkeepers kept them fed with the forbidden fruit of their creative revelry till broad daylight.
On Saturday, September 4th, Winkel & Balktick will share their discovery with a select group of brave urban explorers. Dare you enter the Forbidden City and risk leaving the mundane world behind for good?
= PARTICIPATE =
