How would you feel about a Lotr theme park? Can't Post

So would you be happy about this? And would your reaction determine whether you would still go for the sake of it?

I voted indifferent [In reply to] Can't Post

because it could be amazing if done right, and really awful if done wrong.

I voted yes [In reply to] Can't Post

but it would have to be the theme park to end all theme parks - a total Middle Earth immersion, and not sure if that's possible.

Sounds great! Those are great ideas! [In reply to] Can't Post

Personally I am with you on this one, I would like theme park if done in a way that is respectful of Tolkien's stories.

I'd just like [In reply to] Can't Post

to be able to visit Rivendell and Minas Tirith. I despair of anyone ever making a theme park for bookish folks someday, consisting mostly of libraries described in books.

"Boromir's Big Drop" would be pretty exciting, though.

It would depend on the execution.

Not if it is a 'regular' theme park... [In reply to] Can't Post

...with a Tolkien theme.

So no free falls, roller coasters, etc.

But, if it is a Tolkien-themed mixture of French theme park 'Puy du Fou' and Dutch theme park under construction 'Wildlands', then I would love to see it happen!

A bit rough for the Dwarves and Hobbits though. [In reply to] Can't Post

"You must be above this height for this ride" would preclude most of them...

Ah, true but thinking of the entrance fee [In reply to] Can't Post

we mustn’t forget this is a LOTR-themed park. Would not most or many of the rides be amenable to the hobbits & dwarves (especially if the Dwarves knew the secret entrance words – “Barak Khazad!”? thus gaining free entrance?) WinkWinkWink
