Tianjin is home to many theme parks, but one theme that is probably in a league of its own is the Binhai Aircraft Carrier Theme Park. This park is a military theme park, the center of attention of which is – you guessed it – an actual aircraft carrier! Giving its visitors hands on experience of what it is like to be in an aircraft carrier and displaying other military themed attractions, the Binhai Aircraft Carrier Theme Park is definitely one of Tianjin’s attractions that is well worth a visit.
The park is set in a small bay, where a now decommissioned Soviet Kiev-class aircraft carrier is made open to the public. Some of the highlights of this theme park including being able to explore the Command Room of the aircraft carrier, which is preserved in its original state, as well as the Intelligence Room. You can also get a peak at the science, technology and man-power that make these enormous vessels sail and attack with absolute precision. Out of the deck you can take a walk on the runway for the carrier, on the sides of which are parked different fighter jets which have been decommissioned. You can even head down to the lower decks which have the Engine Rooms and torpedo room, with actual 20ft long torpedoes. These, along with many other attractions make the Binhai Aircraft Carrier Theme Park a treat for anyone who is fascinated with military ships and aircraft.
