Rollercoasters in Bangladesh

Bangladesh gets its first theme park.
Located on a greenfield site more than an hour's drive from Dhaka, the Disney-style theme park sits a little incongruously alongside paddy fields and villages that have no running water or electricity.

The sponsors expect 5,000 visitors a day

On offer is everything the fun-lover would expect to find in a western theme park, right down to the hamburger bars, popcorn stalls and a large amusement arcade.

Critics argue the park itself is incongruous in a country where around half the population of 130m lives below the poverty line.
