BonBon Land amusement park in Denmark is something you must have never imagined would really exist. This place is gross, and by gross I literally mean disgusting. It is full of urinating rats and vomiting rats. Well apparently, these are the animal attractions you will find here.

If you want to overcome your fear of crocodiles, this theme park in Australia is where you can do it. The Crocosaurus Cove lets you have a personal contact with the crocodiles by letting you hold a baby crocodile, a tour to the 200000 liter aquarium, walking through the reptile enclosure, watch their feeding times and fishing for the crocodiles. If you are more confident about yourself, you can later try the Cage of Death experience where you are lowered down to the barrier to see them very close to you. And if you need a partner to have this experience with you too, you can also take a friend in a cage that holds two.
