    A tour of the World's Worst Theme Parks

    My favorites:

    Grutas Park: "Step back into the halcyon days of Stalinism, experience the joys of Gulag life, immerse yourself in the warm embrace of totalitarianism -- and when you get a bit peckish, enjoy a tasty meal of "Nostalgija" borscht, "Deer's Eye" cocktail, and "Reminiscence" starch jelly in the cafe. "

    Loveland: "To get nervous couples in the mood for procreation, the park invites visitors to "appreciate the natural beauty of love," with attractions such as Breast Mountains, Giant Stone Penis, and the masturbation bike. "

    Dickens World: I think the best part of this would be the chance to experience the squalor of a 1800's public restroom.

    But my absolutely definite favorite is:

    La Caminita Nocturna: "For well-heeled denizens of Mexico City and a few foreign tourists, it's a chance to see how the other half lives. Border Patrol agents emerge out of the darkness in pickup trucks, sirens blaring, firing guns loaded with blanks -- while visitors run for cover, ducking behind cacti, and scrambling under fences. "

    And let's not forget the Vermonster health spa. Their weight-loss program involves slathering you in bacon grease and running you past a bear cave. (Larry, Darryl, and Darryl, prop.)

    Obviously none of you have ever been to an English seaside resort - Stalin world, luxury!

    Good thing. UFO parking is a real bugger.

    People's Park at Berkeley! Although it isn't technically a "theme park", it's certainly a park with a theme.
