Sad news for all kids today, the Amusement Park (Vidámpark) in Budapest will close its gates permanently as of November 6th 2012 as I just read on Caboodle. The park is close to bankruptcy and the renovation would cost around 1bn HUF. City leaders are pro amusement park in Budapest but would prefer an entirely new park together with a private investor.
In case you would like to visit the park once more you need to hurry up, it’s only a bit more than a month left until permanent closure. For many Budapesters this will be a nostalgic moment as it was part of their childhood and youth and it has ever been around.
One of the main attractions is the “nagy hullámvasút”, have a look at the ride.
