Wunderland Kalkar, located near the Dutch border, was built at the former nuclear power plant SNR-300 in 1985, costing an estimated $5bn.
It never opened for its original purpose nuclear power plant as one year later, the Chernobyl disaster happened, which led to a number of protests.
It was then bought by a Dutch investor Hennie van der Most in 1991 before opening the hotels in 196 and the theme park in 2001.
The most popular ride at the park is the Vertical Swing ride, a 58m high swing ride built into the power station’s cooling tower.
