Mr. Marvels: A forgotten Theme Park

Updated: Nov 22, 2020

Mr. Marvels also known as Scarborough Fair opened in 1984 shortly after the closure of Zoo & Marineland. The doors closed for good in 2002. During the period between 1993-2000 I supplied several images of the site for use in the Tourist Guide.

Since 2007 I have been recording the gradual disintegration of this once popular attraction. There have been various rumours of development, but to date non have materialized.

Much of the site became a dumping ground for the earth removed to make the new swimming pool, Alpamare.

Any last remnants underneath, are now resigned to become tomorrows archaeology.
