A Creation Museum Theme Park Contest

PZ Myers must have been the inspiration for the Creation Museum’s new idea:

The Creation Museum is planning a big announcement later this month about an expansion to its religious-themed attraction.

Few details have been revealed, but Boone County residents said they’ve heard the Petersburg attraction plans to build a theme park that promotes the same biblical worldview.

Or more like Ken Ham‘s people saw the success of the Holy Land Experience theme park in Florida and wanted to take away some of their clientele.

Here’s what I want to know:

What attractions will the Creation Museum Theme Park have?

The most amusing/entertaining/hilarious answer gets a $40 shopping spree to Atheist Tees (which has all sorts of merchandise)! Just insert the word “Taco” at the end of your entry to be considered for the prize.

(The contest is open to everybody, not just US residents. I’ll pick the winner next week and that person will be notified via email. Thanks!)

    Every hour on the hour, you can watch a magic show in which a man is created whole from nothing, then has a rib ripped out which turns into a woman. On display in line for this show, there is be a jar of peanut butter which constantly falsifies evolution by not spontaneously producing modern life forms.

    The “Fall from Grace” ride. It will be a freefall tower ride shaped like an apple tree. Riders will be taken to the top, shown a video a woman eating an apple and then dropped back down to earth. It teaches people why god is mad at us, and shows that women are to blame for it.

    “Banana Boat”: One of those swinging pirate-ship things in the shape of a banana

    “The Leap of Faith”: A malfunctioning parachute ride that drops patrons at the top. Those of great enough faith will be saved from falling by God.

    Like DisneyWorld’s Tower of Terror, it will have a Tower of Babel ride. But this is MUCH scarier than the Tower of Terror. Instead of visions of ghosts and stuff, you’ll see Biblical people suddenly speak bizarre, hard-to-hear languages like Esperanto, Welsh, and Hippie. And the drop sequence involves dropping Bibles into your laps. Those waiting in line can help themselves to the Create-Your-Own-Sunday-Worship bar.

    Taco.

  • Mariela

    A roller coaster simulating paradise and original sin. At the beginning it’s really fun, and you are weaving through a beautiful forest full of happy animals and flowers and nice smells. Then you go by the snake and the evil, evil woman who is eating an apple. Suddenly there’s loud thunder and lightning. After that it’s the most terrifying roller coaster ride of your life. It throws you side to side in the dark, really fast, ending in a fiery “crash” (fast and long vertical drop into a dark hole, surrounded by real fire) simulating hell. It smells of sulfur, too. You come out of the free fall into a glowing room full of clouds and singing angels where a big voice tells you that you’ll go to hell if you don’t follow Jeeeesus (who is a giant animatronic waving at you from above, with glowing eyes). Your heart at this point is pumping so fast and you are so full of adrenaline that, of course, you totally agree with them.

    The ride takes pictures near the bottom of the free fall, and you can buy them once you come out of the ride. They should serve as a reminder of why you should always follow Jesus – you never want to be that terrified again.

    Actually, I can see them building this. It could be highly effective if you believe that crap (and utterly hilarious if you don’t).

    taco! yum!

    “The Siege of Jericho” ride. Think like one of those special-effects blowing up around you type rides. Complete with marching around the city blowing on horns to knock over the walls, and burning the city down will all inhabitants still inside.

    How about a Bible themed arcade?

    Angel’s Arcade: Play the Avenging Angel video game, where you play Michael and smite down those that offend God with your Sword of Fire. Noah’s Raging Rapids: Help Noah navigate the Ark past mountain tops and dinosaur carcasses as he weathers out the Great Flood.

    Jesus and the Lepers: how many disease and sin riddled zombies can you save before Satan comes to collect their rotten souls? Sodom’s Sorrow: can you escape the city of Sodom before God destroys it?

    Sin City: Garden of Eden–You are Adam. Ruler of the Garden of Eden. B*$ch slap your woman, Eve, as she tries to talk you into eating the Fruit of Forbidden Knowledge. Kill snakes when you see them. Have sex anytime and run around in naked bliss. Fight to protect your innocence, before you end up bringing Original Sin into the world.

  • JohnJay

    Its not really in line with creation science (which tries to explain the world we see using biblical rationalizations)… so no taco here… but it would be neat to go really big and really fundie:

    Ya know that Epcott Ball? (Spaceship Eath). Build something like that, but have it be a model of the biblical cosmos. It can be called… 7th Heaven. You take slow elevators (or Jacob’s ladder) up through the seven heavens till you reach god’s throne. They can pattern what’s in each heaven using the books of Enoch. (While not part of the bible, they describe the prevailing view around 100BCE.) Maybe instead, call it “Enoch’s Wild Ride”. Here is some concept art already done:

    LeviticusLand – a section of the theme park where you can live under the laws of Leviticus!

    – Keep a satchel full of rocks at your side in case you come across any of those pesky homosexuals. You know what to do…
    – Properly prepare your burnt offering to the lord and yourself in our self-service cafeteria.

    – Play a game of Cooties with menstruating women; they’re unclean after all.

  • Keyla

    Noah’s Flood Water Adventure: The largest indoor attraction of the theme park! Experience Noah’s flood from the perspective of the heathens. Watch as a replica of the arc floats away amongst a realistically looking rainstorm, and get readdy to get wet! Make sure to bring a wholesome bathing suit. Pets and babies are welcome. ;)

    A theme park can’t exist without food stands. Forget about turket legs and funnel cakes. Sample menu:

    $10/glass Jesus “wine” (water. Just add faith to turn into wine)

    unicorn on a stick

    Special barley cakes

    dinosaur TACO!

  • http://mrvorhias.deviantart.com MrVorhias

    Instead of a fun house they’d have a “Faith House.” (Because enjoying yourself too much strays from the path of Godliness.)

    It doesn’t have any actual mirrors in it, but those of true faith will be able to see themselves next to God in the empty frames…everyone else will just see a wall.

  • Reginald Selkirk

    Or more like Ken Ham‘s people saw the success of the Holy Land Experience theme park in Florida and wanted to take away some of their clientele.

    Kent Hovind had a theme park in Florida, Dinosaur Adventure Land, which has fallen on hard times since “Dr. Dino” got sent to prison for tax evasion. Maybe AiG is trying to fill that market niche.

  • Digitus Impudicus

    Noah’s Log Ride: Guests ride miniature ark replicas down a log flume that is 40 days and nights of fun. 9 out of 10 riders are drowned when the ride starts.

    Noah’s Petting Zoo: Cram all the animals you can find into a full-scale ark, along with the guests, and watch the fecal hilarity ensue.

    Balaam’s Donkey Ride: A cash-strapped Eddie Murphy lends his voice to this animal-themed race track ride. (With apologies to Mike Myers).

    Elijah’s Vomit Comet: Guests are strapped into whirlwind-shaped seats and spun violently as they zoom up and down the Prayer-tech ™ certified tracks.

    Substitutionary Atonement Ferris Wheel: Watch Ken Ham scream loudly about the ridiculously high price of this ride, and then offer to go talk with himself about a discount. Riding is only half-the fun!

    No Evidence Needed Arcade: The games all seem irreducibly complex, but all you need to do is plug your ears and shout “LA LA LA!” to win!

    Talking Reptile House: This feature is on hiatus pending the results of a lawsuit from J.K Rowling.

  • Tim

    Forget the rides…the real attraction will be in the bathrooms.

    Each urinal/toilet will be painted with the face of a different atheist/humanist/skeptic/etc., and the Christians will be encouraged to “baptize” the unbelievers with their “holy water.”

    Now, I won’t delve into fecal metaphors, but the toilet paper will be printed with The Origin of Species, The God Delusion, and Harry Potter.

    Above the sinks will be charming signs reading: “Jesus may have washed your soul clean of sin, but please wash your hands!”

  • Aberforth

    The success of the Holy Land Experience? I was under the impression a couple of years ago that they were on the verge of bankruptcy. A Christian broadcasting company took over the facility to try to keep it alive and use the area for filming (which was NOT pleasant for those of us who lived in the apartment complex across the street, though it was kind of amusing to say “DAMN IT!” and hear a heavenly choir immediately afterwards.)

  • Ubi Dubium

    The Holy Roller Coaster. It’s straight and narrow, and really really boring. (see this sign at the “museum”). But everybody who rides it tells everybody else what a great ride it is, and they ride it over and over and over, convincing themselves that it’s the best ride ever, and that everybody who won’t ride it is “evil”.

    Well, I’m more concerned with the snacks, which at some theme parks qualify as an attraction unto themselves… so I’m predicting

    Angels Wings cotton candy – 100% hand spun from the wings of angels

    Hellzapoppin’ Popcorn – popped over fires just like those which await nonbelievers in hell! hahahaha! (sigh)

    Cross-shaped Popsicles – because the regular ones are way too phallic for this theme park.

    And “Dino Kabobs” – big chunks of (alligator) meat on a stick, just like our ancestors would’ve eaten when they were, you know, co-existing with those vegetarian dinos.

    Taco. (which I’m having trouble coming up with a theme for. ahem.)

    The Hellicoaster: It terrifies the riders by plunging down towards hell. Only by reaffirming to give your life to Jesus will it curve back up towards heaven. There will, of course, be the obligatory sign at the beginning that states that if you don’t really reaffirm your faith while on the ride, Jesus will know it and you will suffer the consequences later on.

    A quiz-show styled game where you are asked if a number of people deserve to go to hell… the answer is yes except for zombie dude
    “the persecutor” a ride that tortures you either until you denounce Jesus (at which point you lose and are taken for further “education”) or you die (if you die without denouncing Jesus your going to heaven, so killing you is good, right)

    At disney, they have a “raiders of the lost ark” ride where you get to see a flood come at you. I imagine they would have a Noah’s Ark ride where you get to see flood waters purge all the sinful animals, and plant life from the planet.

    Or maybe “Rapture passes” where you get pulled out of line and get to go straight to the ride.

    Darnit, Keyla, you took the idea I was going to use. Except I was going to add ‘Scuba tanks available at an additional charge.’

    Therefore, the backup idea:
    The JeriCoaster! A simple coaster, with no hills or dips, that circles around a model city. It closes every seven days because some unknown vandal keeps knocking down the wall around the city.

    Or, for the more discriminating (and old-enough) guests, there’ll be:
    The Garden! A casual hangout, to live like we did before the fall: naked and carefree! To avoid any temptation by walking serpents, no women will be allowed in. Actually, to avoid any temptation at all, no men will be allowed in, either. We’ll be told it’s a very nice place, though.

    And finally, for the younger crowds, who want more interactive exhibits, there’s:
    The Re-risen! The heathens Lazarus was buried with have stolen Jesus’s gift! Return those zombies to the grave using these divine shotguns, because only Lazarus is allowed to return from the dead! (Well, him and Jesus.) Be careful not to shoot any of the mourners – and if you hit Jesus himself, you’re immediately escorted off the premises.

  • Green Dragoon

    The Disney ride “It’s a Small World” is just as nauseating as the Creation Museum, and it also seems to brainwash our youth. So why not a ride called “It’s a Young World?”

    The outer façade of the building can have a stylized cutout reminiscent of the Tower of Babylon in construction, complete with little figurines representing the builders…

    The doors open to reveal boats, which travel on holy water. They take riders through a tunnel into the show building, which is much larger than the façade. This portion of the ride features singing animatronic dolls in really stereotypical costumes. Riders visit different rooms, which represent the following:

    • The Garden of Eden, which greets guests to the attraction, and shows God and a recently revived Adam. The latter has a scar on his side. Twined around a far-off tree, a Snake gives Eve an apple. All four sing “It’s a Young World After All!”

    • The Wilderness, with Cain singing while he clubs Abel to death. Pterodactyls fly by.

    • On the Ark, with Noah and his animals singing in unison while everyone else drowns. Dead bodies float by, along with a few dinosaur carcasses and a dead, pink, translucent unicorn…

    • Jerusalem, with a bloody, crucified Jesus singing “I Will Love You, After All!” in Aramaic. Witnesses to the crucifixion sing a modified version.

    From this point, the lyrics in the different rooms change to:
    “Jesus Loves You, After All!
    Jesus Loves You, After All!
    It’s a Young, Young World!”

    • South America, with the song sung in Spanish. The surviving indigenous people are shown at a church, complete with smallpox scars and crucifix necklaces. They are cheerful, but in a forced way, as they bury their dead and ring the church bell. The missionaries are drinking the sacramental wine a little too much…

    • England, with Emma Wedgwood singing with a Cockney accent to her husband, Charles Darwin. He hangs his head in shame…

    • Africa, with the rhythm of the song marked with drums and then sung in English by missionaries. In the background, Christian “archaeologists” uncover the remains of a triceratops and an ancient saddle. (never mind that triceratops never lived in Africa)

    • The Finale Room, with representatives from all the cultures of the world dressed in white versions of their native costumes and singing in English in unison. A resplendent Jesus is also there, along with the repentant Richard Dawkins, PZ Myers, and Hemant Mehta, who have just become born-again Christians. PZ spears a squid to show allegiance to his new zombie overlord. Meanwhile, animatronic dolls walk into the holy water river for baptism.
    • As you leave the ride, Ken Ham hands you a complementary Bible.

    This ride emphasizes the theme that the world is young and small, and sneaks in the point that we need Jesus’s love to stay interconnected.

    Yuck!

    Either a Vegas like casino called Sodom and Gomorah or a “You missed the Ark” water ride.

    At every attraction would be a St. Augustine animated statue that would wave a finger at you and warn you not to have any fun, because pleasure outside of God himself is tantamount to fornication.

    All of these rides are great, but everyone is going to need a little place to sit down, and refuel…

    So come on down to The Messiah’s All You Can Eat Seafood Buffet!

    Located at the Sermon on the Mound Food Court, this first class restaurant features unlimited refills of fish and bread, and even has a water-to-wine happy hour! So bring your friends, bring the family, and don’t forget to tithe to your host.

    Tonight’s special: fish…

    New for the first time: The Crucifixion Challenge! Step up and test your meddle against the Almighty Himself. Can you endure 40 lashings, a crown of thorns, a spear in the ribs, and hanging from the very same (replica) nails that Jesus endured? Make sure to forgive your oppressors or you’ll be disqualified!! Medics will be on site to help you “rise again” if you cant live up to our Savior. A sponge soaked in wine will be offered as a consolation prize to those not holy enough to survive!

    While I love Baptism Rapids and the Defenders of Faith Shooting Gallery (now we know why they took PZ’s picture), here are my entries.

    Tunnel of Unconditional Love – using child like characters as in Disney’s Small World after a brief tour of godly and goodless life in a 1950ish America we plunge first into a viewer friendly but theologically correct depiction of hell (taken that Dawkins and your claims of child abuse). Then we are washed into a depiction of heaven complete with gold streeted villages, endless family picnics, and finally a rousing round of cheribic and in tune childrens’ choirs.

    The Mark of the Beast Rollercoaster with 666 loops.

    Reformation the Ride – after your Bible shaped buggy enters through Wittenburg’s church door encounter Luther, Zwingli, Calvin, Wycliffe, and all the other greats.

    Try your luck at the 1 Samuel 18:27 game! Just like the Whack-A-Mole game, you can be David, where you will have the opportunity to lop the foreskins off of Philistines popping up randomly from the board! Collect 200 foreskins and move on to the next phase…Moses’ Run! The enormous pool parts at random times! Run away from the Yul Brynner look-alike without getting wet as the waves come crashing back! Exit through the gift shop, where you can buy a freshly cooked bag of fried calamari “foreskin” rings for a snack and make a tithe for jesus (tax-deductible, of course)!

    Sin-a-max theater ride through heresy. Showing: From Galileo to Dawkins: Thinking is a bad idea. TACO

  • David F

    A game where you are the angel of death and kill all the first born, but skip those houses with lambs blood on their door.
    I was thinking a shooting game to keep the carnival feeling, but this is a theme park, so I think they can invest in making a mock miniature village to complete the serial killer/genocide experience.

  • Ubi Dubius

    The Mad Tea Party ride. It makes a lot of spin; people are screaming; you’re going nowhere; and you might get in hot water. TACO

    The Rollercoaster to Damascus. So scary, it’s guaranteed to scare the bejebus into any Godless infidel! (moneyback guarantee)

  • Brian C Posey

    I don’t know if I’d trust a theme park built by people who believes things are “just theories”.

    Roller Coasters … gravitational theory — just a theory

    Food preparation … germ theory — just a theory

    The most popular attraction will the the “Be Fruitful and Multiply Adult Bouncer” A park employee will play God and randomly pick two ticket holders for a private five minute “bounce” after which they will be given an apple and get kicked out of the park.

  • Tony

    Two ideas here: Firstly it would be important to introduce visitors to the most virtuous man in the twin cities of Sodom and Gomorrah so the visitors get to dress up as Lot’s daughters and get their “daddy” drunk enough to have it off with them so that they can have his babies and, um, repopulate the earth…

    Second idea is to show God’s game side and run a book allowing visitors to bet on how much torment you have to subject Job to in order to make him question God. Visitors can buy their betting tokens in the shape of the Almighty or in the shape of the Infernal Fallen One depending on which way they are betting!

    You will give them $50 for a ticket for what they claim is the greatest roller coaster ever. You stand in line next to a line of people waiting for a roller coaster ride at a theme park next door. During which you are allowed to mock the people in the other line for not having tickets to the most awesomest roller coast in all of creation. After standing in line for several hours, you pass through a door leading to the roller coaster. However, once past the door, you find that there is no roller coaster. You ask the attendant where is the roller coaster. His reply is that your faith in the roller coaster wasn’t strong enough, but if you give them $50 more and stand in line again, you’ll be guaranteed the most awesome ride ever, as long as you have enough faith.

    Harris/Dawkins 2012? In their mercandise. Really? Um, they are aware that non-citizens can’t be elected, right? Even naturualized citizens can’t run for president. I know they’re trying to be funny but that just makes them look as stupid as Palin.

    Hope no one used this yet:

    “House Abraham”, just like House of the future from the 50s, but more of a Flinstone look. Dinosaurs for animal labour etc.

    A boat ride through a tunnel of love . . . the boats seat only one person, and the tunnel is of love for Jesus.

  • Clyde

    Or you can play a game of “Heave Offerings,” similar to horse shoes except using chunks of charred flesh.

  • Clyde

    Oops, Taco

  • Mark

    One attraction will be called “Dig for Jesus” which will be comprised of a large dirt field with dinosaur bones buried in it. Kids and adults alike can forage for the bones. The lucky believer who finds one has to explain how it got there.

    Those who answer “God put them there to test my faith” will win a prize. The prizes will consist of life size stuffed animals that they can choose from a life size Noah’s ark.

    All other answers will result in being buried up to their neck in the hole they just dug, whereupon other spectators will throw stones at the exposed head until their faith is restored.

    Everyone wins when you Dig for Jesus!

    Or, perhaps, an exciting game of “Pin Mary on the Donkey.”

    Good ideas. Let’s hope it ends up just like Jim Bakker’s Heritage USA:http://illicitohio.com/SBNO/heritage/heritage01.html

  • Natalie

    Have you ever played Monkey Island? There’s a roller coaster that dunks the riders in lava, killing them, and creating more undead minions for the park operators.

    I predict that the creation museum will have a similar roller-coaster-into-a-pit-of-fire, but instead of literally turning the riders into new skeletal minions, it’ll merely scare the living hell out of them to create new tithers.

    Too likely to be true?

    “The Dance of Salome” A ride similar to the whirling teacups ride at Disneyland where the riders spin around before a larger than life animatronic Herod and are then given a stuffed-animal replica of the head of John the Baptist as a souvenir.

    “Stone the Heathen” is an obvious carnival style game using beanbag stones. (At least `til the evangelical revolution makes using real stones against real heathens legal)

    “Christians and Lions” Sort of a bumper car style ride where riders try to get away from automated lions; they get to ride as long as they can avoid the lions which deactivate the riders individual cars. The cars can be made to look like chariots to extend the Roman theme.

    “Moses on the Nile” A relaxing gentle boat ride in gondolas made up like wicker baskets

    Using the picture as inspiration, I suspect an attraction may be a mechanical dinosaur in which patrons can ride, similar in fashion to the mechanical bulls that frequent country western establishments.

    @muggle,

    “Harris/Dawkins 2012? In their mercandise(sic). Really? Um, they are aware that non-citizens can’t be elected, right? Even naturualized(sic) citizens can’t run for president. I know they’re trying to be funny but that just makes them look as stupid as Palin.”

    I’m stupid? That design is my second strongest seller.
    Thanks for the marketing advice, but I’ll keep my own counsel in that area. I’ll consult with you when I’m looking for advice on humor, kindness, sentence structure or spelling.

  • ScottWe

    From a friend:
    This magical place will be called “Adventure World”. A promised paradise (for a minor entrance fee), where kids are taught to believe that there is no other theme park and if they behave and don’t eat from the exorbitantly high priced kiosk, They may one day get to not only queue for 4 hours, but also ride the heavenly Go-Karts!

    From me:
    Tending to the theme “creation”, there will be hundreds of chemical soup bowls, crystal making kits, computers where you can create your own “perfect” animals – all where you can play “god” and create.
    No, wait… doesn’t that sound too much like science?

    :-)
