We’ve just returned from a week long trip in northeast Italy. One of the highlights of the trip was a restaurant/amusement park called Ai Pioppi. Ai Pioppi is an amusement park built in the woods by a man who runs an outdoor restaurant. Nothing is electric – it’s all run by kinetic energy. There are rollercoasters and slides that go above the trees! It’s kind of scary but exciting. Don’t worry – all rides meet “Italian Safety Standards”! Which means you may come out covered in bruises like our son did, but it’s totally worth it!
Here’s an article about the place. It would never be allowed with all the lawsuits in the U.S., but I’m glad it’s in Italy because it’s awesome!- http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2013/10/ai-pioppi-kinetic-carnival/
