TEN MOVIE THEME PARKS THAT WOULD BE BETTER THAN A HUNGER GAMES PARK
THIS POST. So honestly, just go back and stare at that map...because I don't even think I need to make a case. Star Tours barely taps the unlimited potential that a Star Wars theme park could have. Flight simulators are fine and all, but really....there are SO much more possibilities here. Aside from rides, there are restaurants, shops and even whole lands based on the worlds seen in the film that could exist in a whole park dedicated to Star Wars. There are rumblings that this could indeed be a possibility in the future, I can only hope and pray that this is true...especially THIS ARTICLE. Seriously I could cry.
LORD OF THE RINGS - People travel all the way to New Zealand to get a glimpse of where the Lord of the Rings films were shot (and sometimes life conspires against them being able to see the hobbit holes, but I digress...) Why not localize these worlds into their own parks? Some of the rides here might not be as obvious as Harry Potter or Star Wars, but I'm sure some creative minds could come up with something worthy of the series. There's always baddies to escape whether it's Gollum, ringwraiths, or a giant spider. Plenty of potential here.
INDIANA JONES - Okay this probably doesn't need a full park to itself, but still....a whole Indiana Jones park or even land would trump a Hunger Games one. The current ride at Disneyland is definitely one of the best ones the park has to offer and is constantly busy every time I've been. And Indy has some pretty thrilling adventures to inspire even more rides, restaurants, and attractions.
INCEPTION - Yes this is the most unlikely and probably implausible entry on my list, but really....this is a movie world I can see many people wanting to enter. Why? Because the possibilities are endless, and it's unlike anything humanly possible in our world. To enter a theme park version of it....would just be pretty fun. Rides could be as absolutely trippy as possible, AND without gravity. Let's just say, it'd be a pretty cool place to visit.
PIXAR - Here's another one where versions of this idea already exist. At Euro-Disney, you have a whole land devoted to Pixar with rides and attractions in this theme. I visited this and found it to be utterly adorable. It's easy to see the possibilities of a whole park in this theme because some of the most obvious ideas weren't really even there (Monster's Inc and the door rides! Come on!)
BACK TO THE FUTURE: For shame Universal! How dare you get rid of all traces of the greatness of Back to the Future in your parks. There's so much you can do with the concept of time travel! The ride back in the day was fun, but mostly because it was Back to the Future related. There are a lot more adventures you can have with the DeLorean than purely simulated ones (though...technically all rides are just simulations...but i digress)!
BONUS: AVATAR. Yes. Even Avatar. Even this movie I despise I would rather get its own park than the Hunger Games. Since when did I start hating The Hunger Games? Well I don't....I just know theme park potential when I see it, and Hunger Games makes zero sense....and I must admit though I hate Avatar with all my heart, THIS image of an Avatar attraction really blew me away. I would absolutely go on this ride....And ETA: CHECK THIS OUT
Now if only all of these could just exist in one place...that would be the ticket. So what do you think? Are you excited for
