An amusement park in a western country usually contains exciting rides such as the roller coaster (which many students will already be familiar with). Going to an amusement park is a reasonably common day trip event for a western family. These days, theme parks may be more common than amusement parks. These are basically the same thing, except that they have a theme. For example, Disneyland is a theme park, because the theme of the park is Disney and Disney characters. The "theme" of a theme park can really be about almost anything. Some examples of themes are movies (e. g. Universal Studios Theme Park in Hollywood), famous cartoon characters (Park Asterix in France), or popular toys (Legoland in Denmark), etc.
