The Happiest Place in North Korea (27 pics)

Mangyongdae funfair is the closest thing North Korea has to Disneyland.

 

Can’t wait to see one of the most “thriving” centers of amusement? Welcome to North Korea. Local Mangyongdae funfair sends chills down the spine as soon as you mention its name. This place is nearly always empty, as ordinary North Koreans, for some reason, avoid it.

No wonder they do. The park’s rides are so ramshackle that locals are recruited to test the rides for safety before foreign visitors are invited to come here.

And after we finish at the fun park, we will go down and watch the army gun down innocent people and go out for rice cake.

Creepy. Is it too expensive place to go or are visitors labeled as "different from norm" and taken to death camps in the middle of the night?
