Holme-Olstrup, Sjælland, Denmark
About 100km from Copenhagen lies the 34-acre BonBon-Land, one of the strangest and wackiest amusement parks in the world. The park's creation stems from Danish candy maker Michael Spangsberg who make funny candies with names like Mågeklatter, Store Babser, Tisse-bleer, Øre-voks, and Hundeprutter. (Those names translate to Seagull Droppings, Big Boobs, Diapers, Ear Wax, and Dog Farts!) After the candy became popular with kids, people started wanting tours of the candy factory, but this was not possible due to strict hygiene requirements. Instead, Spangsberg opened a small theme park in 1992. BonBon-Land has exapnded a few times since then. In 2007, the Spanish company Parques Reunidos, which owns over five dozen theme parks, purchased BonBon-Land.
Presently the park has over 60 attractions, water rides, a few playgrounds, and a large number of strange and unusual statues and lots of examples of humours architecture.
