If your idea of a fun filled family vacation is tetanus and possible decapitation, have we got the getaway for you!  It's Mangyongdae Funfair in North Korea!  Situated ten miles outside of the capital city of Pyongyang, Mangyongdae is regarded as little more than a rusting rarely visited ghost town so much so that even the locals avoid it.

When VIPs visit the park, local farmers are "volunteered" to test the rides before them for safety as often maintenance on them is only done on as-needed basis.  Frequently, this maintenance is little more than riveting a bolt back into place while the ride is in operation.  Often when these VIPs are visiting, locals and families of soldiers are brought to the park to give it the illusion that it is full.  Often, these people are told to just stand in line so that the VIPs can be placed in front of them.

We don't know how many people have actually been hurt or killed at Mangyongdae which means either the visitors have had colossal luck, or it's been covered up.  Needless to say, this takes the title as the "Most Death Trappy Place on Earth!"
