There’s A Creepy Floating McDonald’s That Has Been Abandoned For Nearly 30 Years

I bet you never knew that McDonald’s actually had a floating restaurant back in 1986… oh yeah it’s true. It was featured at the popular Vancouver Expo in Canada, and was actually a really great success for a little bit. Sadly though, the restaurant closed after the crowds left, and the “McBarge” (yes… that’s what they called it) now sits unused and neglected in the waters of Burrard Inlet.

It was dubbed the worlds first floating McDonald’s
