Greek Mythology Theme Park Rides and Attractions that sound Super

Zeus

Here you will find the most amazing theme park rides and attractions in the world paying tribute to Greek mythology and the Olympian Gods, that I know about.

This proves that Greek mythology can be awesome fun! All you have to do is think about Pegasus, the famous flying horse from ancient times, to realise that the Greek Gods love an awesome ride.

These modern theme park rides and attractions based on Greek mythology would thrill kids, teenagers, great parents, the young of heart, and possibly even the Greek Gods and Goddesses themselves. Yeah, they like to have some fun too.

Before visiting any of these amusement park rides and attractions, make sure they still exist, because even if they do, they could easily disappear from the face of the earth, similar to how the Greek Gods and Goddesses vanished long ago.

Another thing, watch the movie National Lampoon’s Vacation (1983) one more time and try and learn all you can from the Griswold family. Make sure the place is open before you go and don’t be a Wally.
