• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Action Park reopens

Theme Parks are, to simply put, amusement parks based upon a theme of some kind. They can range from campy mom-and-pop affairs, such as those tucked in among the lovely glacial ravines of New Hampshire's White Mountains, to high-tech vacation destinations run by big corporations, like the Six Flags parks and Universal Studios. And, of course, the Disney Theme Parks. For a whacking load of pictures and videos from many parks all over the world, go to Theme Park Review. Yes, it's Exactly What It Says on the Tin.

Outside just themed environments, theme parks often try to tell stories through their attractions. It's mostly the larger theme parks that put this much effort into this, using incredibly detailed sets, animatronics and special effects to really push visitors into the setting.

Speaking of, Disneyland is certainly the Trope Maker here. See also Souvenir Land. A related trope is The Theme Park Version, used to describe something that has been simplified and sanitized for mass consumption.

For the video game, look at Theme Park.
