  • Movie and TV sets can be extremely elaborate — if they're done right, they can transport viewers to an entirely new world.
  • Some sets are so elaborate that they are deemed too expensive to deconstruct once filming has wrapped.
  • When this happens, the structures are abandoned and left to rot, whether it's an American-style gas station off a highway in Morocco, or the remains of a faux bus/train crash in the Smoky Mountains.
  • Some have been turned into tourist attractions.

Everything you see on a screen, whether it's fantastical new planet or a dystopian future on our very own Earth, has roots that exist in the real world.

But what happens to these specially constructed sets once filming wraps? Sometimes, they're torn down as soon as cameras stop rolling — but other times, they're simply left to their own devices while the cast and crew move on.

From "Star Wars" to "The Hills Have Eyes," here are seven iconic sets that were abandoned as soon as the cameras stopped rolling.
