Michael Jackson's Amusement Park

Tuesday, August 26, 2003 3:59 PM
I just heard on MTV news that Michael Jackson is going to open up his amusement park and zoo to the public for an open house on November 1st. The price they said was $5000 a person I think. So who's all going. Not me thats for sure and who would even want to pay that much to go to that guys house?

$5000 to ride a Zipper? That sounds about on par with your average carnival.

When was the last time one of his albums sold well? No, I'm just kidding.

I think $5,000 is a little much so I wouldn't expect too many people coming to the park. I mean, if you are going to open the park, open it to folks who may not be able to afford a good time, not just kids.

He has such one of a kind rides such as a ferris wheel, zipper, pharoahs fury, tilt a whirl, and I believe a prototype "kiddie" Dragon Coaster

He also has the Steam Train that ran at Carowinds from 1973-'75. (For any Railfans out there!)

Imagine how sweet it would be to own your own amusemant park. I would go if I had the money, especially if he put in something awesome like a texas twister like ride at SFWoA. It would be worth it unless you actualy had something to do with your money.

When I make my first billion, I'll make an amusemant park and let people in for free. Well at least for a few years.

The irony of it is that he does need the money. After Invincible (or whatever that album was called) flopped, he had some obscene amount of money he owe Sony for studio time, producing, marketing, etc. In the end, he ows them (not kidding) around fifty million. Add to the fact that he was already in debt, sold half his main asset (Beatles catalogue), and is weirder than hell and you've got a broke man.

Anyway, I can't stand his music and I don't believe you could pay me $5000 to visit "Neverland".

*shudder*

Yeah, Jackson does need the money. But parents better keep the kiddies away! ;). Seriously, Jacko is trying to help himself, and charity. There is nothing wrong with that.

i guess but not by exploiting ppl for a visit to his backyard thats like me charging $20 bucks for ppl to play croquet in my backyard so i can buy wacky worlds if he needs the money he should make a cd like thriller or go on tour he would make millions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but im sure some ppl would pay $50000 just to ride a new coaster so w/e i say wait till hes bankrupt and opens the park for a resionable amusment park price

Actually, the Neverland estate is up for sale, lock stock and amusement rides. I seem to recall a link on the Parktrains site about this.
