What reminds you of theme park magic that isn't a theme park?

For me it's a lot of classical music.

Hearing a machine clicking away rhythmically on a construction site or something

I haven't had a meal from McDonald's since I was a teenager (over 5 years ago). My association of the smell outside of any McDonald's is Chessington WOA, from when they had McDonald's served in Transylvania. 
Sometimes walking around National Trust gardens remind me of not only The Gardens but some other wooded areas of Alton Towers. 
Also, hearing the noise of people in an indoor swimming pool, even at leisure centres, give me a similar vibe to hearing the noise from the riders on rides at a park. 
Interesting conversation topic btw

You've sparked some more now  :lol

- Any of the reggae songs that used to be played in the waterpark
- The smell of chlorine and sweat (like the corridors of Splash on a hot summer's afternoon). Should be horrible but it isn't when you have good memories associated with it  :lol
- Any old cottage/house in a wooded area, especially with a dark, spikey fence and an abundance of ivy
- Hearing a distant airborne roar
