Top 5 Theme Parks You Won’t Believe Exist!

It was announced this week that Margate in Kent’s theme park, Dreamland, is set to reopen its doors after having been fixed up and revamped for a new generation to enjoy. With this in mind we set about compiling a list of 5 of the strangest theme parks across the globe!

1- Patriot Park

The first on our list is a new military theme park that is set to open in Russia. If you visit Patriot Park for the day you can play with grenade launchers, test heavy weapons such as the T-90 tank or an attack helicopter, take part in extreme sports and even enjoy army rations for lunch. Dubbed Russia’s military Disneyland this park is defiantly something different, that’s for sure!

2- Kingdom Of The Little People

This theme park’s popularity grew when it was featured on an episode of the TV show An Idiot Abroad. The park is located in Kunming, Yunnan in China and features performances from people with dwarfism. To work at the park you must not exceed 120cm and all the employees live in nearby houses designed for their height. Although this park is a very popular attraction many have criticised it for making fun of the dwarfism condition.

3- Hacienda Napoles (Naples Estate)

Pablo Escobar’s estate was converted into a theme park by the Columbian government in an attempt to cash in on his black market earnings. This park built on the drug smuggler’s estate includes a zoo, a bullfighting ring and a classic car collection amongst other strange artefacts.

4- Shijingshan Amusement Park

This park located in Beijing, which has been dubbed ‘fake Disneyland’, has a castle at its centre that looks very similar to Disney’s. The park is full of weird and wonderful rides including an American safari where you go round and try to shoot at plastic animals! Many of the park’s characters which people have said look very similar to well known cartoon characters include a grey talking bunny, a mermaid, flying elephants and a large blue caterpillar! The owners, however, have clearly stated that everything is based on Grimm’s Fairy Tales…

5- The Republic Of The Children

Said to have inspired Walt Disney in the creation of Disneyland, The Republic Of The Children is a giant city proportionally sized down for kids, which is located in Argentina. It has everything you would expect to find in a city including an airport, restaurants, hotels, a church and even a courthouse!
