So long as the investment is there, the only limits to a theme park are imagination, space and structural stability.

JCBs, diggers and construction vehicles are a common sight whilst a theme park is being constructed, but Diggerland makes the construction vehicles the attraction.

The Holy Land Experience
In the United States, there is an entire secondary market for Bible-themed music, toys, games and even a biblical theme park.

It recently closed in 2021, but over its two decades of existence was a unique and rather controversial theme park setting.
The world’s largest indoor theme park, Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi is a theme park that is designed purely around one idea: speed.
Along with seeing an exhibition of Ferrari’s famous fast cars, they also have several huge rollercoasters, including the world’s largest loop and the world’s fastest rollercoaster, with speeds reaching up to 130mph.
