Wallyworld gets some competition in “Holyland”

A businesswoman in Britain wants to start a biblical theme park. Andrea Webster is asking for £144 each from a million Christians so she can build it.

If you can’t afford to donate, she only asks that you pray for success. If you attend “Holyland”, and if not enough people donated, then pray like crazy that God instructed the underpaid, overworked, disgruntled park staff to secure the bolts on the rails of the “Corkscrew to Heaven” before you’re strapped in.

I’m not sure about the marketing possibilities here. Even a staunch Christian will probably cringe at the idea of a place where everything is a “win-win” situation. For example, an exhilarating rollercoaster ride brought to a successful completion is a “rush”, and the same ride falling off the tracks and plunging four stories is viewed as assisting two dozen lucky patrons in achieving their glorious “eternal reward.”
