The Mental Floss portal has given to its readers the list of the most fantastic amusement parks in the world. Among the participants of the rating are a merry-go-round made of excavators and the Danish "candy land."
There is an artificial ocean - Ocean Dome situated in Japanese Miyazaki. This is the biggest aqua park in the world. Its pool is decorated with marble plates with the total weight of 600 tons. The space capacity of this park is 10 thousand people and its main decoration is a giant sliding roof, which allows the holiday-makers to tan in sunny days. In bad weather and in the evenings the roof shuts, and in the park turns on a unique illumination system with ultraviolet rays.
Inside the Japanese aqua park there is an artificial rainforest and a mini-volcano which erupts every hour. But the funniest thing is that this giant "artificial ocean" is situated 300 meters apart from the real ocean with wonderful beaches.
The Lithuanian Grutas Park joins entertainment and the dark monuments of the Soviet epoch. The giant sculptures of Joseph Stalin and Soviet liberator soldiers are neighboring here with the zoo and a playground. The park is surrounded with a ditch and watchtowers, turning it into a wicked illusion of a camp for the exiled ones.
The Nintendo amusement park is not connected with the Nintendo corporation which produces famous game consoles and games for them. It bears a little resemblance to a park. It is an embodiment in reality of "Super Mario" video game. In this park the guests are offered to go the way of the virtual Italian plumbers Mario Mario and Luigi Mario.
It is a perfect possibility to find out what could the characters of video games feel, if the scene of the game happened in the real life. Yet the park exists as s prototype, and its creators try to find money for its development and negotiate with Nintendo and Disney for the possible partnership.
The Danish "candy" amusement park BonBon-Land resembles the similar confectionery Hershey park in Pennsylvania. Though, in the Danish variation of this park all the characters like ferris wheel rides are made quite frivolously, which is of small wonder in the most liberated European country. The lustful caramel cows with giant breasts, licentious turtles, erotic horses and other humanlike creatures attract the attention of adults and children. And a ride on a merry-go-round around a giant chocolate pile of dog poo (accompanied by the specific noises) elates the public.
The visitors of English Diggerland are given a ride on everything that can dig. The merry-go-rounds here are giant excavators, tractors and other construction equipment. The public screams with fright and delight, wiggling in the dipper of giant vehicles.
The Buddhist amusement park Suoi Tien is situated in Vietnam. Its interior appearance, including the giant statue of Buddha sensitizes you to the sad mood, but once the visitors ride the water go-rounds or peep into the amazing cave with bats, the mood immediately changes. The park is famous for its crocodile farm, the inhabitants of which put tourists in fear, and for the trip through the 12 "gates of hell" on the "Pirates of the Caribbean" amusement ride.
The entertainment industry doesn't leave unmentioned the Romanian earl Vlad Tepes, known also as Dracula. Alas, the Romanian authorities still renounce the idea of building a theme park in Transylvania, at the historical home of the legendary vampire. It is considered that the construction and mass tourist flow will harm the local forest, where grow 400 years old oaks. There is a rumor that the construction still will have place, but it will only be moved closer to Bucharest.
