You work hard and when it comes to time to catch a break, you play hard as well. You want to make the best of your vacation and your relaxation time. Maybe spend some quality time with the family. The truth is in today’s fast-paced working environment quality leisure time, either with your family or alone, is hard to come by. We need to make the little we have count. We need a fun, memorable location that we can reminisce on blissfully in more stressful times, sort of like a place of refuge. One of the best places to get this relief is a theme park. Here’s a list of seven of the most memorable theme parks in the world.
1. Europa Park
Like its name might hint on, this aptly-named park combines all the features of various European countries and cultures in just one place. Any traveler who would like to learn a bit about history, architecture and European culture would find this park to be an intriguing prospect.

3. Buffalo Bill Resort and Casino
This is one of the most oddly situated theme parks or recreational facilities you’ll ever come across anywhere. Why is it unique? It’s located smack dab in the middle of the Nevada desert. Right after the border crossing between California and the state of Nevada. Imagine driving down the highway and coming right up to a massive coaster in the middle of the desert. Did I also mention that the ride is awesome?
31900 Las Vegas Blvd. S., Primm, Nevada
4. Tokyo Disneysea
This theme park is exceptional because of its theme. The rides are based on the imagination and writings of 19th-century bestselling author, Jules Verne. Verne had an exceptional vision of what the future would resemble and even though it all didn’t turn out exactly that way in reality, it’s all been recreated here. Trust the Japanese to do an incredible job.

What would a list of the most exciting and memorable theme parks be without Disneyland? Nothing at all, such a list would be irrelevant. Disneyland is the model to follow for theme parks around the world. The sheer size and financial resources expended to create such a masterpiece is staggering. Even though it is one of the oldest theme parks, it’s still arguably the best with the most original and innovative themes, characters and rides. The fun factor of this park is in a class of its own.
