Jurassic World opened in theaters on June 12th! Although it hasn't been in theaters for very long, it's been widely successful, and has even made fans wish for a dinosaur theme park! FloridaTix, a UK-based online website that sells tickets to theme parks in Florida, asked 2,000 people in the UK which movie or TV-based theme park they would like the visit the most. The results were quite interesting...
- Jurassic World (30%)
- Game of Thrones (18%)
- Star Wars (17%)
- Hunger Games (13%)
- Lord of the Rings (12%)
- Doctor Who (10%)
- Futurama (0.3%)
- Adventure Time (0.2%)
- Family Guy (0.2%)
Breaking Bad (0.1%)
The top vote was for Jurassic World. Is it because it's recent, hyped, and on people's minds? Or do people just really want to visit their own Jurassic Park? I'll let you be the judge of that. Personally, I wouldn't mind going to a theme park to see "living" dinosaurs! Though I am a bit skeptical on how well that would turn out. You understand, right?
Simon Applebaum, Consumer Marketing Director at FloridaTix commented:
“Florida is renowned as the home of some of the best theme parks in the world and a place where your imagination can be taken to the next level. It was interesting to see Jurassic World ranking as the most popular theme park concept considering the storyline of the film series!
Suggestions of a James Bond and Avatar inspired theme parks were also put forward by members of the public, but our heart is with the nation and perhaps we’ll be selling tickets to Jurassic World in the near future!”
There are already quite a few awesome theme parks located in Florida, with more on the way, such as Frozen Ever After, and Skull Island: Reign of Kong. That said, I'll always accept new theme parks with open arms! Here's a few I'd love to see...
The Hunger Games
Okay, so maybe being in The Hunger Games' arena is a little extreme, but there are safer alternatives! We could travel between the Capitol and various Districts and Victors' Villages by train! And it would also be pretty awesome to go to the training center to train for the games! I'd probably train for archery, and edible plants.
Game of Thrones
I know that this is another dangerous world due to the White Walkers and all, but I'm a sucker for fantasy worlds! Imagine having "dancing lessons" (sword-fighting lessons) with Syrio Forel! Heck, I'd go to the theme park just to see The Wall, and sit on the Iron Throne! I probably wouldn't talk to anyone, though. I can't trust anyone from that universe anymore.
I have to say, I'd definitely fit in with the other 30% that voted for Jurassic World! I just can't pass up the opportunity to see all of these prehistoric creatures, no matter how life threatening it might be! I'd just be crossing my fingers that nothing bad would happen while I'm there. After-all, you can't just suppress 65 million years of gut instinct.
