This Crazy-Cool Amusement Park Is Nearly 400-Feet Underground

The other day I was talking to a friend, I knew his grandmother was in ill health so I said to him “How’s you’re Nan, Charlie?” he looked at me and said “She’s six feet under, mate.” I naively assumed she was dead and consoled him… turns out she was just a 60th of the way to Salina Turda Durgău amusement park. 

Yes that’s right, in Romania there’s an amusement park 368-feet underground. Back in the 17th century it was just a lowly salt mine where it’s main attraction was copious amounts of salt, presumably. But in 2009 it got renovated into the wicked-cool tourist attraction that it is today…

As you make your way down to the park, you get to see the beauty of the mine. With its walls of salt and it’s floors of salt and, let’s not forget, its ceilings of salt. Steak sandwich a bit dry? Just rub it on the closest surface and enjoy the salty goodness (don’t).

Perhaps the best thing about it, though (other than it’s features that include a huge ferris wheel, mini golf course, amphitheater and sports arena), is the price to get in – £3.50!!

The answer to the question on your lips is, yes, the temperature does remain at a steady 10ºC and the humidity is around 80%…

Have a look at the virtual tour with it’s ever so slightly intrusive euro-pop anthem-style dubbing and BE AMAZED!

It looks really cool but it makes you wonder, you goes that far underground just to have a game of pool? Also is it as easy to breathe down there as you’d hope? Burning questions that need answering…
