Downtown’s Indoor Amusement Park


One of the shortest-lived amusement parks in history, the $58 million World of Sid and Marty Krofft was open for just six months in 1976.

The world’s first indoor theme park was created by the brothers, successful puppeteers and producers of popular children’s television shows. The multi-level park was housed inside today’s CNN Center and featured a floating crystal carousel, costumed performers and a giant pinball machine ride.

Due to expensive tickets, technical problems and downtown Atlanta’s unpopularity, it closed by November. All that remains is the long escalator that took visitors up to the Kroffts’ psychedelic world.
