Shijingshan Amusement Park

Beijing, China
TEL: 86 10 6886-2547

At this trademark-skirting park in western Beijing—where a banner over the entrance proclaims: "Disneyland is too far"—there's a replica of Sleeping Beauty's castle (with less sparkle and more Communist-brick realism); live character doppelgangers of Shrek, Donald Duck, and Minnie Mouse; and even a copy of Epcot's dimpled globe. Opened in 1986, the park caught Disney's attention for its infringements only in 2007.

Best of the Strange: The copycatting is not limited to Disney icons; Hello Kitty knockoffs often mingle with Loony Tunes's Bugs Bunny.
