But who says theme parks are all just clean fun? Not all parks are created alike — and some of them are not rated PG.
Human Catapult, UK
Some park rides are, well, bad ideas. One example is the Human Catapult Ride at Middlemoor Water Park in UK. For 40 GBP, riders can go on a massive medieval style catapult and get flung through the air at 60mph, before you get caught in a net 75 ft. away.
Since the ride opened it had caused several injuries and accidents. The ride proved deathly when in 2002, a 19-year-old student from Oxford took the ride, missed the landing net and was ultimately killed.
Chambers of Horror – Atlanta
Atlanta’s Chambers of Horror is an extremely disturbing and horrifying haunted house, which is bound to give you nightmares for years. The house is the brainchild of talented artists Luke Godfrey & Rene Arriagada, who both worked in Hollywood on shows such as The Walking Dead.
Museums are all about education and learning, but Amora is nothing like the museums you’ve been to in school. Amora is known as the ‘Academy of Sex’, and much like an erotica museum.
Most of their exhibits are interactive and… with a lack of word for it… ‘hands on’. You can learn more about sex, talk to a sex therapist, and even have a spank-o-meter! This place will help you find the erogenous zones via interactive sculptures, improve your kissing ability, learn to play erotic games and more. Amora ran for more than a year in 2007 and was located in Piccadilly Circus, London. Too bad it’s no longer running!
Jeju Loveland, South Korea
South Korea boasts an erotic mark just 10 minutes away from Korea’s Jeju International Airport. Here, you can find 140 different works of art, all on sex. The park was founded in 2004 by a group of local art students in Seoul who designed the sculptures in order to ‘highlight natural beauty of sexuality’.
Guinness Book of World Records
Last 2010 dozens of nudists took part in the effort to break the Guinness World Record to raise money for charity. They broke the world record with 102 people, who rode the Green Scream Rollercoaster at Adventure Island, Essex, United Kingdom. The effort raised 22,000 GBP for Southend Hospital Foundation’s Keyhole Cancer Appeal.
Penis Park, Korea
This is Haeshindang Park and popularly known as “Penis Park” in Sinnam, South Korea. The legend goes that the park was dedicated for a young virgin girl whose fisherman boyfriend left her on a rock while he caught fish at sea. A storm came and she died. After her death, villagers are now unable to catch fish, hence they tried to please the virgin by creating giant wooden penises to appease her spirit–and apparently, this strategy worked.
Now the parks has dozens of phallic statues, with various sexual icons and art from various cultures, shaman rituals as well as history of the local fishing community.
Brazil is set to open the first ever adult-only sex theme park–dubbing itself as the ‘erotic Disneyland’ which features erotic attractions such as cinemas with seats that vibrate, train of pleasure featuring go-go boys and girls, nudist pool, sexy playground bumper car rides that look like genitalia, and more kinky stuff. Erotikaland is set to open in Sao Paolo in 2018.
Dig This, Las Vegas
Dig This is a construction-themed park which basically features a massive sandbox full of obstacle courses, challenges and activities as you make your way through as you operate bulldozers, excavators and other heavy equipment. All activities are for adults only.
BH Mallorca, Spain
There is a brand new water park that is adult’s only–and it’s friggin’ awesome. The new BH Mallorca had just opened in 2015, and is an off-shoot from their Ibiza resort. BH Mallorca features 656 suites, adrenaline-rush water slides, a 360-degree human roller coaster, and twice-a-week sets by famous international DJ’s! It’s so awesome that Sunday Times’ 100 Best Holidays 2015 proclaimed: “the genius who came up with the concept of the first adults-only waterpark deserves a knighthood.”
La Cité du Vin, France
Do you know there’s a theme park free from screaming kids & filled with alcohol? Sounds like paradise for most adults! The place is known as Cité du Vin with literally means ‘City of Wine’, in Bordeaux, France.
The place features 20 wine-themed exhibits and sections all about wine–history, culture, and then more. There aren’t any rides, except for one simulated boat ride featuring a wine merchant sailing around the world.
