We have all heard of Disneyland, Universal Studios and Six Flags, but what about the more obscure theme parks out there? Why not take the kids to Diggerland this summer? Or have romantic gateway with your significant other to South Korea's Love Land? Here are our favorite unusual theme parks.
It's not all Disney World and Legoland
Summer is almost here which means so is a well-deserved holiday. But what should you to with all the free time? We suggest spending at least one day at a theme park, but not Disney World or LEGOLAND. This year why not discover some of the more weird and wonderful amusement parks out there. With that in mind here are our favorites.
Ferrari World - UAE
Whether you are F1 fanatic, a lover of elegant Italian supercars or just like a good rollercoaster Ferrari World has it all. Opened in 2010 it remains the largest indoor amusement park in the world. Its other claim to fame is the Formula Rosa - traveling at whooping 149MPH it is the world's fastest rollercoaster.
Angry Birds Land - Finland
Who hasn't played or at the very least heard of Angry Birds? The smartphone game was such a hit that it spawned its own film, Lego sets and not one but several theme parks. The one we are talking about today can be found by the gorgeous lakeside of Tempere in the Sarkanniemi Amusement Park.
Diggerland - England
Who doesn't love a digger? Apparently not a lot of people as there are four amusement parks in the UK alone dedicated to diggers and JCBs. Diggerlands can be found in Devon, Kent, Yorkshire and Durham. Each park has digger themed rides, as well as digger racing and stunts.
Darwing Crocodile Park - Australia
If you find yourself in Darwin Australia, and are looking for something to do why not take a trip to Darwin's Crocodile Park and enjoy its main attraction - "The Cage of Death". The aforementioned cage allows those brave enough to enter the water with a huge saltwater crocodile. If that does not sound like something you would enjoy check out the park's aquarium, which is home to turtles, crocodiles and sawfish.
