  1. A Geeky Travel Guide to Six Flags’ New DC-Themed Rides

    Wimps need not apply.

    If you’re like me, you haven’t been to a Six Flags theme park in roughly a decade, but that might just need to change come 2015. Most (if not all) of the 18 or so Six Flags parks around North America have had a DC Universe or Gotham City area since the 1990s, but now, with Batman v Superman in production, Six Flags has announced some brand new DC-themed rides for four of their parks.

  6. Lionsgate in Talks for Hunger Games Theme Park, the Hungriest Place on Earth

    Real Or Not Real?

    Wasn't I just talking about misguided attempts at marketing The Hunger Games? I suppose this was inevitable when we made an action blockbuster franchise out of a dystopian future setting where the enemy isn't robots or aliens or disease or a natural disaster or dragons... it's just other people.

  9. Be Our Guest! Magic Kingdom To Start Serving Wine and Beer

    Highly Successful Marketing Strategies

    (EDITORIAL CORRECTION: Though our original source said Disneyland, we did a bit of confused post-pub checking, and it turns out the expansion is coming to DisneyWorld, not Disneyland. Sorry, California.) Fantasyland is about to get wilder…in the most mild of ways. When Disneyland sees an expansion in the Fantasyland section of their park this fall, a new Beauty & The Beast-themed restaurant (titled, what else, Be Our Guest) will have beer and wine offered on their dinner menu. The licensing of the restaurant will be a big break with longstanding tradition upheld by the late Walt Disney himself. Broken long ago elsewhere in the park, the Magic Kingdom area has been a holdout that harks back to a time when Walt moved his DisneyWorld plans from St. Louis to Orlando because the city insisted on serving beer. According to the Disney blog, there's a concern that opening a new section of the park to alcohol could result in cases of obvious drunkenness, and lead to bad word of mouth due to the presence of "drunken louts". Hey! As a lout, I take offense to that!

  10. Northeasterners Rejoice: DreamWorks To Open Theme Park In New Jersey

    Cautiously Optimistic

    For those of us in the Northeast, our fandom-based pleasures are often woefully far away -- Comic-Con is in San Diego, Disney is based in both California and smack dab in the middle of Florida, with Universal's Marvel Island right along side it. But now, with any luck, DreamWorks animation may answer our prayers for a closer source of franchise-based amusement  with their plans to build a new theme park in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Who's ready for a Puss In Boots ride?
