Theme parks are usually centered around movie franchises or popular rides, but the 'Spamusement Park Project' set to be built in Beppu, Japan, is a very different type of theme park. The project, which was suggested and later approved by the city's mayor, will build a massive spa-themed amusement park in the town.

Though such a concept might seem bizarre, Beppu is the perfect city to host a spa-themed amusement park. The town has the world's highest yield of natural hot spring water. Using that natural resource, Beppu will build an entire park that combines the relaxation of a hot spring retreat with the fun and games of a carnival theme park.

The idea became a reality after the town council released a video depicting the concept that has since gone viral.
