12

 Water parks have begun to open their doors in Iran and their popularity is skyrocketing.

Iranians have long complained about a lack of recreational opportunities, and the advent of the water parks — including a sprawling, open-air facility run by the municipal government — suggests that public officials and private sector investors now see opportunity in offering citizens new ways to have fun.

The parks have brought welcome relief to young people suffering through the hottest Iranian summers in nearly a half-century.

    Question: Where can you open an amusement park that can be opened throughout the year, operated any day of the year, attracts tourism 365, and never has a very cold day( never below 6-8C)? Big money brings lots of return and jobs. There are lots of Arabs from Arabian peninsula, lots of people from eastern and western side of Iran and beyond that love to see such a park open 365 rather traveling to any western or Chinese destinations. Money is within the region, all you need to do is to build it. There is a fraise in American culture that says; ” you build it -they will come).

    Nothing better than enjoying a water park with all dudes only. Nothing strange at all about every single person being the same sex while at a water park.

    Since there is a gender discrimination and its going to be all sausage party in these parks it will be good for gays. Perhaps Iran can become a hub for Gay tourists!
