Why not amusement?

Sana said: (Aug 30, 2016)  
There are always numerous means of every word when we considered (different parts of speech in terms of a noun, verb, adj, adverb).

When we considered in terms of a noun, Diversion comes from two words divert and diversion means to turn aside, to deviate from the path.

But amusement : an activity that diverts the mind from tedious or serious concerns; a recreation or pastime. It is a closed meaning but not the exact one, it is an expression of diversion.

So the more pertinent meaning is a deviation.
