What would a theme park control room look like?

Okay, my story contains biker vampires (yes, I was inspired by The Lost Boys, how did you guess?), and their "lair" is in the control room of an abandoned theme park. I know it is, because that's what is has to be--- I just had the narrator walk down a whole hell of a lot of stairs to get there.

My problem is... What does the control room of a themepark look like? Of what, as specifically as can be, would it consist? How big would you want it to be? Is having it so far removed from the rest of the park (it doesn't have to be as far as I've got it) a bad idea?

A lot of the answers to the questions might not matter in the end, as the park's been abandoned for a good twenty years and the vampires have probably completely destroyed the room, but knowing what it would have looked like will help me figure out how it looks now.

Additional questions:

  • I haven't been to many themeparks (exactly one, in fact), so this question will probably seem stupid, but what kind of themed attractions are there at a themepark besides roller coster rides and theatre shows?
  • Out of what do they usually make the on-surface scenery in a themepark? What would be practical? Would it be difficult to destroy such scenery, or otherwise negatively interact with it (i.e. pulling down the themepark's fake doric columns)?
  • What would happen if the themepark's owner lost a ton of money on the themepark and closed it down, but couldn't find anybody to buy it from him? Where would all of the stuff go? Would they cart away the cars on the rollercoasters and the aforementioned doric columns?
