The amusement park in Abbottabad will have a zoo, water park, restaurants, mini golf and a ski ramp.
The Daily Mail reported:

The town where Osama Bin Laden was killed by US Navy SEALs is to become the new home of a £19million ($30 million) ‘amusement city’ complete with a zoo, water sports and mini-golf, Pakistan’s government has announced.

The 20-hectare riverside development on the edge of Abbottabad will also house a string of restaurants, a ski ramp and even a snake pit for tourists’ amusement.

However, government officials were quick to distance the project from the city’s most famous former resident, insisting it is simply a drive to boost tourism to the region.

Bin Laden died in a hail of bullets as American Special Forces stormed his secret lair on the outskirts of Abbottabad on May 2 2011.

‘The amusement city will be built on 50 acres in the first phase but later will be extended to 500 acres,’ Syed Aqil Shah, the provincial minister for tourism and sports, told AFP.

‘It will have a heritage park, wildlife zoo, food street, adventure and paragliding clubs, waterfalls and jogging tracks.’

Work is due to begin in late February or early March, he said, and will take eight years to complete.

    Will there be a stoning booth? A one-way suicide rollercoaster? Costumed characters of favorite terrorists who will give autographs and IEDs to the kids?

    Those Pakis sure know how to make lemonade from lemons.

    #2, Think of the other “rides” and amusements. Forcing infidels to lie across the tracks of the roller coaster, or for lesser offenses just tying their fingers across the rails. Or water boarding, except revival is not an option.

    Lets see what other GP posters can come up with,

    Muslim sense of “amusement” is going to be at great variance from Western concepts.

    How dare Pakistanis do something that sounds normal.

    Amusement park concept casts a sharp contrast with the monumental wet blanket thrown by the Ayatollah Khomeini:

    “Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.”

    Now I see why it is so easy to convince islamists to slip into an explosive vest.
