Defined as the largest
uninterrupted indoor space, Tropical Islands Resort in Bradenburg, Germany is
the biggest waterpark in the world. While that's notable in its own right,
there's another suprising twist in this plot: The entire amusement park exists
inside of an old German airfield. The original structure was built in the
early 2000s, intended to house a giant airship carrier that was never actually
constructed since the company behind the endeavor went bankrupt. The total
cost to build the dome was $85,449,390. The massive, empty space grabbed
the attention of investors and much to waterpark enthusiasts' delight, a
new landmark was born. The park features tented rooms available to rent
overnight, tethered balloon rides that'll take you and five others up into the
building's rafters, indoor greenery that's actually alive and growing thanks
to the transparent ceiling panels, and more.  The video host puts the
size to scale perfectly: the entire domed structure is b igger than NASA's
vehicle assembly building—he also mentions that you can fit the entire House
of Parliament in the park twice with extra room left over . Check out the
