Fancy chilling out at an old nuclear power station? Well, if you think that this is a particularly unique location to bring your kids (or grandchildren) while offering them a little history lesson on nuclear power, then the Wunderland Kalkar amusement park is right up your alley. This disused nuclear power station located in Germany has been converted into the Wunderland Kalkar amusement park, which at least puts the land to good use so soon after the government decided to abandon all nuclear energy plants.
It is admirable to say that a certain level of creativity is required when it comes to creating an amusement park like Wunderland Kalkar, so that makes perfect sense against the backdrop of a disused nuclear power plant. We do expect to see many other creative conversions in due time, where another 15 or so power plants are tipped to be be completely abandoned by the time 2022 rolls around.
Just what other uses do you think can a disused power plant be converted into? I am thinking of some sort of boutique hotel or a museum.
