HISTORY:
The oldest amusement park of the world (opened 1583) is Bakken, at Klampenborg, north of Copenhagen, Denmark. In 1895, the first permanent amusement park in North America opened: Sea Lion Park at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. In 1897, it was joined by Steeplechase Park in Brooklyn, New York. The introduction of the world-famous Cyclone roller coaster at Steeplechase Park in 1927 marked the beginning of the roller coaster as one of the most popular attractions for amusement parks as well as the later modern theme parks of today.

AMUSEMENT PARK: Amusement park is the generic term for a collection of rides and other entertainment attractions assembled for the purpose of entertaining a fairly large group of people. An amusement park is more elaborate than a simple city park or playground, as an amusement park is meant to cater to adults, teenagers, and small children.

THEME PARK:
Theme parks form a more narrowly defined category of an amusement park. They are permanent facilities that use architecture, signage, landscaping to help convey the feeling that people are in a different place or time. Often a theme park will have various sections of park land devoted to telling a particular story.
