This Children's Park Was Designed to Look Like a Roller Coaster

The Oosterpark in Amsterdam was built in 1891 and in recent years there have been several additions to it -- including the 'Play Garland Oosterpark," which is essentially a roller coaster-themed playground.

The Play Garland Oosterpark is circular in shape and features the dips and hills that can be seen on all roller coasters. The play area was designed by the architecture firm 'carve' and even features twists as some roller coasters do -- although these do not go upside down. The unique roller coaster-themed playground is essentially a long path that has slides and swings placed in random points, making it appear as more of an adventure for children rather than regular playtime.

The large path has multicolored rails that cohesively fade into one another and this creative playground shows that something as classic as a children's play area still has room for distinct transformations.
