If traditional theme parks have become too much of a bore, then perhaps its time to check out some of these awesome and offbeat amusement parks. Today's theme park doesn't just consist of stuffed animals and children-focused rides. Modern theme parks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and occasionally controversial.

Ferrari World in the United Arab Emirates is just one example of the sophistication of modern-day theme parks. A prime example of a controversial theme park would be the slavery theme park dreamed up by Marlon Jackson for Nigeria.

Both of those offbeat amusement parks in addition to others can be found simply by clicking through this cluster. If you still find yourself unconvinced about the awesomeness of these offbeat amusement parks I have four words for you: drug lord theme park.
