38 Experimental Theme Parks

From Underworld Amusement Parks to Surreal Designs

— April 10, 2014 — World
For those that remember jumping on a roller coaster as a kid and loving life, these theme parks could bring back that adrenalin-filled nostalgia. However, theme parks aren't quite what they used to be, with many companies going beyond their traditional sectors and expanding to unknown territories.

Ferrari, for example, us currently building a theme park in Barcelona. The luxury car manufacturer is experimenting with this new sector, and building everything from roller coasters to a luxury resort for visitors. For anyone who loves Ferraris and had kids too, this could be a dream come true.

Other theme parks go with a slightly surreal feel, while some are completely the opposite with a trucking motif. Whatever the type of amusement park, visitors are guaranteed to have a fair bit of fun.
