How do you fill the void when your most important celebrity is no more? If you're Abbottabad, Pakistan, former retirement home of Osama bin Laden, you build an amusement park.
A wildlife zoo, an adventure club, paragliding, restaurants and waterfalls – it’s all part of a $30 million project the Pakistani government is undertaking to improve the image of Abbottabad after Osama bin Laden was killed in the town in 2011.
A brand-new amusement park in the small town will reportedly be finished in eight years. Once fully complete, the 50-acre riverside entertainment park will include restaurants, a heritage center, artificial waterfalls, a wildlife zoo and running tracks.
