  • Located in Romania around 400 feet below the town's surface is the Salina Turda, an underground theme park inside one of the oldest salt mines in the world.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Salina Turda is believed to be nearly 2,000 years old.

  • During its time as a salt mine, it is estimated that over three billion tons of salt was excavated from the walls before mining stopped in 1932.

  • This underground hub has had various uses in the past from a cheese storage center to a World War II bomb shelter but its current usage is perhaps its most unique.

  • In the early 1990s, Salina Turda was carefully converted into a subterranean theme park and museum.

  • This active park includes a 180-seat amphitheater, an underground lake with paddle and row boats, mini golf course, ping pong tables and of course, a Ferris Wheel.

  • Over 2 million people have visited since its opening.

  • The dizzying effect of the place will leave you feeling like you've left reality in this subterranean wonderland.
