A Lapland-style theme park criticised by visitors as "hell" and a "scam" has closed down permanently.
Lapland New Forest opened on Friday on the Hampshire-Dorset border but was criticised by hundreds of visitors.
The firm running the park said it had closed the attraction because of "intentional organised crowd manipulation and event sabotage".
Trading standards earlier said it was investigating complaints from visitors but did not have the power to shut it.
A big sign put up outside the park on Thursday morning said: "Lapland New Forest closed - for more information contact the website".
In the afternoon, a statement from Victor Mears, director of Lapland New Forest, was published on the website.
It read: "With my deepest regret and sincerest apology I am left with no option but to announce that I am forced to close the children's entertainment theme park Lapland New Forest for 2008.
Mr Mears said it was due to: "Intentional organised crowd manipulation and event sabotage during and since our first trading weekend.

He also blamed "unscrupulous and inaccurate negative bias media broadcasts of both local and national press and television companies that contributed significantly to fuelling widespread public concern, frenzy and distraction".
He also said all the company's funds had been "illegally" withdrawn "without notice from the Lapland New Forest Ltd bank account leaving us completely unable to trade".
Mr Mears added: "For all people wishing to claim financial reimbursement I can only advise that you return to our website for further information on this important matter."
Dorset Police said officers were called to the site in the morning after allegations contractors had not been paid.
One contractor had feared a breach of the peace but no arrests were made, they said.
One of the organisers, Henry Mears, told the BBC on Monday that he blamed "professional troublemakers" for bad reports about the site. He has since been unavailable for comment.
More than 2,000 people who paid £25-£30 for tickets to the park near Ringwood have officially complained about it.
Hundreds of people have been calling for the closure of the attraction and demanding refunds, complaining it does not resemble marketing images on its website.
