During the Olympics, they keep showing commercials for a new Harry Potter themed attraction in Orlando and this week I got flyers from Six Flags in the mail saying that they've started selling Season Passes for 2010, so I've had Amusement Parks on the brain. And I've totally decided that there could be a Supernatural theme park (forget Orlando. I'm thinking Salem or Kansas or atmospheric Savannah).
The food would all be tacky diner style (which, have you BEEN to a theme park lately? Nothing tackier than an eight-dollar grease burger). There would definitely be a funhouse of mirrors (patrons are advised not to utter Bloody Mary, however, or security will escort you from the premises.) There would be stunt shows and limited karaoke (selections from AC/DC, Metallica, and Def Leppard). Definitely no clowns, though--dude, they kill.
For the kiddies, there's the mild ride of driving mini black Impalas around a closed course. For the more adventurous, there's the Trickster Coaster, where parts of the roller coaster are in the dark and you're not sure where you're going and sometimes the coaster suddenly changes direction and zooms backward, with the track ahead being nothing more than an illusion. Don't even get me started on the haunted house.
Gift shops would sell small bags of salt, Latin dictionaries, plastic bugs and replicas of Dean's pendant. The midway challenges would include throwing a ball to see how many Reapers you can knock down and the arcade would feature a virtual reality "Demon Hunting with Bobby" game.
It could work, don't you think? All I need are a couple hundred Sam and Dean lookalikes to staff the place and we are in business!
