Here's one for the creepy file. A group of German investors have the go-ahead to build a "horror theme park" in Transylvania themed around Dracula. No word yet on if admission will be in money or blood.

It's funny, my buddy and I were talking about two weeks ago that it would be a cool idea to have an amusement park based on horror movies...though it may not be a family park.

I also hear that the park will only be open after dark ;).

If you read the article then you know it won't be anything big. They said 15.2 million would go to the park and another 19 million will go to improve building infastructures around the park and city. At the best they might get a small cci or a Gci.

This sounds like a real cool idea! Too bad its so far I dont think the average American could afford to go,but If they do it right Im sure local counties would go

JORDON says: The day simulators replace rollercoasters will be the day I check myself into a mental hospital - I agree totally. As for this park, sounds more like a "frightfest" kinda thing with walk-thru spookhouses, etc., not too much for rides, since the finances are so slim.

This new amusement park kind of reminds of the Dreamcast game, "Illbleed", in which the main character must save her friends(I think) from an amusement park. The park is designed to scare people so much that it kills them, though! I don't think this park will be as bad! Nice to see someone working off of the Halloween sides of parks.

I'm wondering if they are going to build a giga or hyper coaster with horror themes surrounding the coaster named Dracula?

I don't think that Halloween is normally celebrated in Germany, but this park could be extremely cool anyway and it would be great if it was open only after dark, from dusk 'til dawn, not likely, but that would be great.

Since Halloween is my favorite holiday, I'd love to see it more celebrated in Germany, but its traditions are Celtic and Irish, so places like Ireland, Great Britain, and France tend to celebrate it more. Maybe this park could help spread the holiday's influence.

Actually...I was doing some research on this...thinking that I would like to go there since I plan to go to Europe next year and I heard that they were planning to put at least 60 mil into the park...most going to coasters...I think this park could be a huge hit, even though it is so far away.
