10 Theme Parks to Visit If You Love Disney World


Summer’s coming, and that means that it’s vacation-planking time! If you love theme parks but have been to Disney World one too many times, there are still plenty of fun theme parks around the world for you to visit. Check out these 10 theme parks that are a whole lot of fun:  

1. Hersheypark

Located in Hershey, Pennsylvania, Hersheypark is  the place to be if you’re a chocolate connoisseur. Say goodbye to seeing the same old Hershey flavors at your local grocery store when you  visit Hersheypark’s gift shop. You’ll also find a variety of candy-themed rides, like the Jolly Rancher Remix and the Cocoa Cruiser. The park also features multiple resorts, and they’re all chocolate-themed.

2. BonBon-Land

Denmark’s BonBon-Land may sound sweet, but it’s one of the strangest and funniest theme parks. The theme park started off as a factory that produced candies with eccentric names, such as “Ear Wax” and “Hundeprutter” (“Dog Fart”). 

If you’re into South Park-type humor, BonBon-Land is the right place for you. The park mascot is a farting dog, and there are plenty of funny side characters to meet, too. This theme park is truly an adult’s dreamland.
