Wunderland Kalkar: Germany, Weekend admission packages start at € 135 (approximately $171 USD)

A benchmark of German ingenuity and foresight at its not-so-finest, plans for this nuclear power plant were abandoned after it had already been built. A Dutch investor bought the land and in 1991 converted it into an amusement park—keeping the nuclear reactor intact. Today, it boasts 40 attractions and rides, including a 58-meter-high vertical swing located inside the cooling tower. We’re American, so obviously we don’t know how the metric system works, but we’re guessing 58 meters is pretty tall.
