    Wunderland Kalkar, near the German-Dutch border, is a family amusement park... inside a nuclear power plant that was never turned on.
    Thanks to all the team at the park! Their web site is at www.wunderlandkalkar.eu/en

This video was originally scheduled for late November, but as Wunderland Kalkar only has a couple of weeks left in its season, I thought I'd rush this out before they close for winter. (And yes, their Covid-precautions were thorough.) Thanks to everyone there, including the ride attendant on the Vertical Swing: I had to ride quite a few times to get all the shots I needed...!

People are so stupid. Nuclear power is the safest form of energy production per MW. It is even safer than renewables after accounting for installation and maintenance deaths. Granted, the waste storage problem is a huge deal, but that's not why most people object.

When i was a kid i took the tour in the reactor building with my dad. I had no clue what the guide was saying because i didnt spoke German at that time. I wish i could take the tour again. I will probably have to go somewhere else.

The real problem hear is how stupid the German politicians are for shutting down and stop construction of all of their nuclear powerplants and instead build more coal powerplants. That's what there should really be public outcry about, instead of unfounded fear of nuclear powerplants and their waste, which is far less dangerous than the self-righteous environmentalists and other seemingly uneducated people think it is.

this is so stupid, not the amusement park ofc tho but when people, and historians, look back at us, they will laugh and/or facepalm hard. building a reactor to just return to coal.... it's like using radioactive cancer treatment materials as fun glow in the dark paint, and showing it to all the people with cancer.... we could have tried to cure your situation but nah, lets party until we drown

I went there once as a child and I still think it's a bit of an odd place but cool nonetheless. They had really good fries there. Half the people there were German and the other half were Dutch, it seemed. It feels very unpolished if you've ever been to a bigger amusement park but it has its own charm. Good to see it still exists.

Thing is, this isn't the only amusement park at a nuclear power plant, in Meppen, Germany there is Funpark Meppen, a theme park dedicated to motorsports (as it is located next to Racepark Meppen) in the shadows of a huge nuclear tower which unlike Wunderland Kalkar, has its tower still in use.

"public protest and political problems" is a very polite formulation. It's an euphemism. No, it's a shame that we have buried this technology here in Germany due to ideological narrow-mindedness. However, as a substitute, some children now have an oversized playground.

Fun fact: There's a gigantic coal mine in Germany which was created relatively recently to fuel coal power plants. Why? Because environmental activists shut down all the nuclear power plants, forcing energy companies to switch to more environmentally unfriendly coal power. Thanks, environmental activists.

Ironic how Germany wanted to reduce carbon emissions, but cancelled nuclear in favour of wind, which caused them more emissions than if they went fully nuclear.
