A theme park is a type of amusement park that bases its structures and attractions around a central theme, often featuring multiple areas with different themes.
Unlike temporary and mobile funfairs and carnivals, amusement parks are stationary and built for long-lasting operation.
They are more elaborate than city parks and playgrounds, usually providing attractions that cater to a variety of age groups.
While amusement parks often contain themed areas, theme parks place a heavier focus with more intricately-designed themes that revolve around a particular subject or group of subjects. Amusement parks evolved from European fairs, pleasure gardens, and large picnic areas, which were created for people’s recreation.
