You know what Disneyland has always needed more of? Tanks. Lots and lots of tanks. At least, that's the thinking behind Russia's newest theme park: Patriot Park.
Patriot Park had its soft open last week with President Vladimir Putin in attendance.
According to CNN, the grounds of the park are massive and will someday include "live demonstrations. Re-enactments of key Russian and Soviet battles are expected to be a regular part of the Patriot Park experience."
But Patriot Park isn't just an amusement park — it's also an exposition center, playing host to the Ministry of Defense's "Army 2015" conference last week.
As part of the festivities, Putin announced that Russia would be receiving 40 brand-new shiny intercontinental ballistic missiles to add to its nuclear arsenal.
And play they did! Why look at how much fun little Timmy here is having inspecting this giant gun. Be careful, Timmy!
People got to explore the rows and rows of tanks and armored vehicles on display and ate dollops of porridge that members of the army get for lunch!
And they got to check out equipment like the Buk-1M system, a variant of the surface-to-air missile system that allegedly took down Malaysian Flight 17 over Ukraine last year.
And...whatever this is happened.
When fully operational, estimated to be in 2017, Patriot Park will be able to host tens of thousands of visitors daily, who will be able to "able to ride tanks, shoot guns and play extreme sports." How fun and not at all bizarre!
