'Spamusement' Park to become a reality

If your city is famous for its hot springs, you might as well capitalize on it! Beppu, a city in Japan, has decided to go a step further than a typical spa.

They are going to build the world's first spa-musement park.

A video showcasing all that a spa-musement park could be was created to promote the idea of a thrilling day spa and shared on Mayor Nagano's Facebook page.
