55-Story Tall Rollercoaster to Scare the Crap out of Floridians

55-Story Tall Rollercoaster to Scare the Crap out of Floridians
I like rollercoasters well enough, but mostly I think I will die any second when I am riding them. Rollercoasters always remind me of being in a car wreck, at least that’s how I feel after riding some of the coasters at Six Flags here in Texas.

Z World Zombie Theme Park Could Make Abandoned Detroit a Cool Place to Visit
I’m sure most of us have watched zombie shows such as The Walking Dead and wondered if we would be able to survive a zombie apocalypse. An entrepreneur named Mark Siwak has a seriously awesome idea for a theme park that would let you find out how you would fare if zombies were to attack.

Theme Park Lets You Drive Your Own Tank!

Theme Park Lets You Drive Your Own Tank!
I don’t know about you, but ever since I saw the 1984 movie called Tank with James Garner, I’ve had a desire to drive a tank for myself. I think it would be awesome to drive the tank and if they let me shoot its gigantic gun, I might have a nerdgasm.

Star Wars Land Coming to Disneyland Paris?

Star Wars Land Coming to Disneyland Paris?
Rumor has it that Star Wars Land is coming to Disneyland Paris (and I will likely never get a chance to see it.) I had an incident there once involving beating a mime with a baguette.

Angry Birds Land Theme Park Opening in Finland: Wonder if They’ll Serve Eggs at the Concession Stands
So you still can’t get enough Angry Birds in your life, huh? Then I suppose it is time to visit an Angry Birds theme park and ride the rides. You will soon be able to do just that as the birds and pigs are set to invade a Finnish theme park, with the creation of the new Angry Birds Land.

Star Trek Theme Park to Open in Jordan

Star Trek Theme Park to Open in Jordan
One of the things that I always regretted not seeing on the trips I made to CES over the years was Star Trek: The Experience and the Star Trek bar at the Las Vegas Hilton. That bar is now closed down so I have missed my chance.

LEGOLAND Star Wars Drops New Model Pics
A couple of weeks back, we told you about the new Star Wars Miniland coming to LEGOLAND, but didn’t have many pictures to share. Well, the guys at Lucasfilm just gave permission to release a bunch of new photos of the LEGO creations on their way to the theme park, and they look great.

Giant Robot Taekwon V Statue Will be Six Times as Large as Giant Gundam Statue

Giant Robot Taekwon V Statue Will be Six Times as Large as Giant Gundam Statue
I haven’t heard of Robot Taekwon V up until now, but I think he’s about to become a lot more famous because of South Korea’s soon-to-be-built robot-themed amusement park, Robot Land. The park will have a statue of the 70s cartoon hero (who was known as Voltar the Invincible in the US).

Pac-Man Land Theme Park: Blast From the Past

Pac-Man Land Theme Park: Blast From the Past
I found this great time capsule image over on Flickr earlier today… I’m not sure where Flickr contributor Rotin managed to dig up this postcard image, but I can’t believe there was actually a Pac-Man Land attraction at the Six Flags Over Texas theme park back in the 1980s, and I never got to go.
