We recently found out that Disney is planning on opening a theme park based on their Cars franchise — never mind that Cars and Cars 2 are probably the worst Pixar movies ever made. Starting June 15th, you will be able to visit Cars Land in Anaheim, and take a ride on Luigi’s Flying Tires or visit Flo’s V8 Café. Though we think this is a totally bizarre idea for a theme park, apparently Cars merchandise sells so well that it must make sense to someone. Regardless, the news got us to thinking about the other theme parks based on really weird concepts — from Napoleonland to Dickens World to Diggerland — that we just can’t get our heads around. Click through to read our roundup of the most absurd theme parks in the world, and let us know which you’d most like to go to — ironically, of course — in the comments.
Ah, a theme park based on operating heavy machinery, why didn’t we think of that? Diggerland — which has four locations in the UK — advertises itself as “UK’s most unique attraction where children and adults have the chance to ride and drive REAL full size construction machinery, under the guidance of our trained staff – No driving licence required!” There are also full-on rides and Dumper Truck Racing, should you feel the urge.
