Which theme park had the best April Fool's Day joke?

April 1, 2018, 12:03 PM · April Fool's Day falling on Easter Sunday this year probably held back some parks from going all-out with the gags this year, but several parks did play along by creating fake press releases and video announcements.

Here are three that I found myself chuckling at, including Efteling revealing the real reason why it retracked its Python roller coaster, Busch Gardens Tampa's announcement about its newest animal habitat, and a Walt Disney World food announcement that I actually would have believed for a moment had it come from California's Disneyland instead.

Efteling's Baby Seats on Python:

Busch Gardens Tampa's Squirrel Habitat:

Walt Disney World's Kale Churros:

Which one was your favorite? Please share any other parks' April Fool's gags in the comments.

Efteling's Baby Seats on Python - a great deal of effort was put into this to make it look convincing. Great job!!!

Efteling's Baby Seats on Python wins top honors to me! Everyone was perfectly serious talking about this innovation - I was crying with laughter! I can't wait to show it to my husband and daughters! Hysterical!

Efteling and the baby seats. It was the ludicrous sitting right next to the yeah-maybe with the perfectly scientific delivery. That was masterful!

Efteling, It had me thinking it might be possible... and since it was closed for refurb & only just re-opened.... absolute gold

The efling baby seat ride was the best they really went all out. If the idea wasn't so ludicrous it is really believable.
