This wine theme park in France is way better than Disneyland

The real ‘happiest place on Earth’.

In France’s most famous wine-making region of Bordeaux, there’s a theme park that, despite not having any rollercoasters, will make you feel dizzy.

Called La Cité du Vin, or ‘The City of Wine, the theme park features 20 areas that cover the history and culture of vino.

Some of the attractions include a 250-seat auditorium for workshops and wine-tasting sessions, various exhibits, and a simulated boat ride that “shows what it was like to be a sea merchant sailing across the globe, selling wine,” High Snobiety reported.

Move over, Pirates of the Caribbean.

There are also two on-site restaurants, with one offering dishes made with local ingredients, and the other having over 800 bottles of wine from around the world (now THAT’S an attraction I’d wait an hour in line for).
