I Hope Rick Riordan Is Checking into This for The Lightning Thief

As for me, I'm designing the Sheriff Dan Rhodes theme park. (Thanks to Brent McKee for the link.)

Harry Potter - the theme park - Entertainment - smh.com.au: "Universal Studios, which runs a string of theme parks, is rumoured to be planning one on a Harry Potter theme.

Harry Potter World will be in the US theme-park capital, Orlando, Florida, according to a report by Bang! Showbiz. It will feature rides based on events in the blockbuster children's' series by British author JK Rowling.

Neither the official Harry Potter website, hosted by Warner Bros, or the rumour section of JK Rowling's personal website so far contain any reference to the plan.

The final book in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, is due in July, and the film's lead characters are already signed up for the movie version."

Hmm. SDR theme park? I can see the Riding Lawn Mower Race Track, and the Wild Emu Safari. Prairie Chicken Petting Zoo, or is that a different series?

The Prairie Chicken is a different series, but who'd know? Except maybe me and you.

Come on, Bill--just add a few side attractions (like Six Flags), Carl Burns World, Sally Good Town, Tru Smith Ville. These would be great add-ons to the SDR theme park.

I need to hire you guys to design and manage the park. I'll just rake in the dough.

I'm not sure a ride where you're attacked by feral hogs is going to be that popular . . . but I could be wrong.

Bill Crider said...

Hey, you'd be armed.

Don't forget the mud wrestling arena, Bill.

Lonnie/still laughing over that scene

Bill Crider said...

That might be the best attraction of all.

You're forgetting the best attraction, the Bigfoot sideshow and oddity museum.

See? This could work.
