Could this be The World's MOST BIZARRE Theme Park?

Popeye movie set turned theme park, the Popeye Village on Malta is a fun for the whole family unique experience that takes inspiration from the original Popeye comic strip, the classic Popeye cartoons, and the 1980 live action Popeye movie starring Robin Williams and Shelley Duvall. In this episode of The Wild & Beyond, my friend Yannis and I had a unique opportunity to explore and experience the Popeye Village theme park nearly all to ourselves during the COVID-19 pandemic in this quarantine time modification of the park. **************************************** WANT TO HELP SUPPORT OUR CHANNEL?
