This 30 Year Old Abandoned Floating McDonald’s Restaurant Is Completely Sinister

Adandoned Floating McDonald's


30 years ago, McDonald’s decided to invest $8million into the first ever floating McDonald’s restaurant off the coast of Vancouver. Initially it was a huge success as crowds of families flocked for a riverboat trip whilst they were eating their chicken nuggets and Big Macs.

However, the novelty soon ran out, and the McBarge (or Friendship 500) was abandoned and left to drift off the coast of Canada, where it still resides today. Here are some pictures from it – charting its opening to its current state of disrepair – and there’s a video at the end of the post of some guys breaking onto it to eat a McDonald’s burger too.

Eww. To be honest, they probably could have just used one of the burgers that was probably left on the boat, as we all know that McDonald’s burgers literally don’t decompose after about five years. Gross.
