In the summer, one of the most fun excursions is a trip to an amusement park. Contrary to what some may believe, amusement parks are most definitely not just for kids! Whether it’s thrilling rides, tasty food, or a much needed break from work that you seek, it’s likely that you can find something for you at an amusement park, especially those on this list. Read on to see five of the best amusement parks around the world that are sure to please the business interpreter and thrill seeker alike!
1) PortAventura, Spain
Starting off this list is PortAventura in Spain. This amusement park is centered around five different civilizations: the Mediterranean, the Far West, Mexico, China and Polynesia. With rides and attractions in each civilization-themed section, the sights are impressive in and of themselves. Additionally, one of the tallest rides in the world, the Hurakan Condor, is located in this park. Riders are strapped in as they ascend to the top of a tower to prepare for a drop of almost 300 feet!
2) Walt Disney World Resort, United States
Located in Orlando, Florida, this list would not be complete without mentioning Walt Disney World. Consistently coming in as the most visited theme park in the world, Walt Disney World boasts an impressive crowd virtually year round. Not only does the plethora of rides appeal to all levels of thrill seeking ranging from scenic, relaxing rides all the way to intense roller coasters, but the park also is home to delicious food at great restaurants, some of which need to be reserved months in advance!
3) Ferrari World, Abu Dhabi
At Ferrari World, speed is the name of the game. At least it is for Formula Rossa, the fastest roller coaster in the world located in this park. Running at just under 150 miles per hour, Formula Rossa certainly fits in at Ferrari World! If speed and intense coasters aren’t for you, Ferrari World also offers impressive scenery mimicking Italian streets. So, whether you’re there to experience the world’s fastest roller coaster or just to enjoy the experience of the park, Ferrari World is a great place to visit!
4) Universal Studios, Japan
At the Universal Studios park in Japan, you can find a range of attractions. Not only are there Hollywood, San Francisco, and New York zones to the part that may make U.S. visitors feel as if they were transported back home, but there is an entire section of the park which is dedicated to Hello Kitty, the Japanese cartoon character! There are rides and other attractions in this section of the park that are unique to the Japanese Universal Studios park making them a must see while visiting!
5) Tivoli Gardens, Denmark
One of the oldest operating theme parks in the world is Tivoli Gardens in Denmark. This is one of the most visited seasonal parks in the world and it’s clear to see why. Not only are the sights and attractions a big draw for visitors, but you can also ride on one of the oldest, still operational, wooden roller coasters in the world, the Rutschebanen. Additionally, Tivoli Gardens is home to the Star Flyer on which riders sit in a swing high above Denmark providing them with stunning views of the ground below as the swings spin around the top of the tower.
All of these amazing locations are definitely bucket list material for both the business interpreter and thrill seeker alike!
