The Guardian has a neat list of theme parks from around the world that run the gamut, from giraffe-infested storybook worlds, to Swedish Wild West towns, to Soviet-era statues stashed in the woods.

Our favourite, judging only by the pictures, is the treehouse-festooned Tripsdrill in Germany.


"Tripsdrill." It's probably lost in translation, but isn't that kind of like naming your theme park "Slipwoodchipper"?

As dangerous as it sounds, we wager none of these places can hold a candle to Action Park.
