German Nuclearwater Wonderland theme park offers “fun for the whole family”

What you see above may look like your everyday fast breeder nuclear reactor plant (and it once was), but in reality, it is the German “Kalkar Wunderland” theme park. The power plant became the biggest waste of German tax payer money in history when the state government decided to cancel the project after 23 years and 4 billion Dollars.

The reactor components were removed, and the whole thing was put up for auction – selling for a mere 3 million Dollars in 1995. Its new owner, Dutch entrepreneur Hennie van der Most renamed it “Kernwasser Wunderland“, which translates to “nuclearwater wonderland”.

With five hotels, a cooling tower climbing wall and a variety of other attractions, this is the only nuclear power plant theme park in the world.
