A theme park can be found within a salt mine – deep underground.
Salina Turda, in Romania, is found 120 metres below ground in one of the oldest salt mines in the world.
With the salt mines dating back as far as 1271, the theme park opened back in 2010.
It now welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors a year, with both locals and tourists.
Inside is a huge 20m panoramic wheel which is the "only one in the world that works underground".
There are also games including bowling, mini-golf for both kids and adults, as well as table tennis and billiards.
