I found a link to the Viral Nova article through another user on the RPGBA, and I liked the content of the original article so much, I tracked down Wikipedia articles (and one Slate article) linking to more information about each.

Edit: Thanks to The Troll Dens for pointing this out.

Credit goes to Viral Nova for compiling the original list — this is just for my reference, including handy links to more information about each location. Incidentally, it seems that the “Wonderland” in China was demolished earlier this year, and I couldn’t find a decent source for the Kabayan Mummy Caves.

Here’s a link to the original post on Viral Nova:
