"Land van Ooit"
When I was a little girl, my parents toke me to this theme-park: "Land van Ooit". A theme-park specially made for little kids.
You can find this place in Drunen, The Netherlands (see google maps). Since 2007 this theme-park is bankrupt and it's now abandoned.
This theme-park was based on a knights theme with much emphasis on theater. There were many actors who played a character.
This park spoke about himself if it were a real country, with inhabitants (Ooiters), other nationals (niet-Ooiers), knights (visitors) and their lackeys (parents). Children are the boss in this park, not their parents, that's the rule!
Heusden, a town in The Netherlands, bought this place and is responsible for the nature reserve and the pink castle.
The new name of this place called: Poort van Heusden and is now a park to walk and it has a free entrance.
The pink castle is the only remaining real estate of the former "Land van Ooit".
