THE BEST Theme Parks

High Wheel

High Wheel

While we wish there really were an theme park ride with cars which float in the sky, the High Wheel is just a clever video trick, accomplished using chroma-key to remove (most of) the ferris wheel.

Nuclear Wunderland

Nuclear Wunderland

Located in Kalkar, Germany, Wunderland theme park is built on the site of an abandoned nuclear power plant. The highlight of the visit – besides glowing – the swing inside the cooling tower.

Abandoned Japanese Theme Park

Abandoned Japanese Theme Park

The abandoned Nara Dreamland theme park in Japan may be slightly creepier than the Six Flags New Orleans tour, though we’re not quite sure why. Either way, there’s haunting photography here.

House of Air Trampoline Park

House of Air Trampoline Park

The House of Air, an indoor trampoline park at Building 926 in the Presidio is “giving flight to the flightless” with dodgeball, open jump time and aerial training. Opens 9/15/10. (Thanks Carter!)
