5. Open your own theme park.

And if all else fails, you could always open your own theme park! I mean look at the success of Diggerland! Who would have thought people would enjoy pretending to be a tradesperson for the day. The rest of us can’t wait to finish. Suppose operating machinery must be the most exciting part!
