I don't know how many of you watch the show Monster House, but tonight at 8PM EST they are having the show themed "theme park house".
I don't know what all this house will consist of but it may be interesting to see what they would put into a house. The show airs on the Discovery Channel.

Those links are for the amusement house this I believe is a new episode a Theme park house.
Amusement park was episode 25 Theme park house is episode #55.
Army Rangers lead the way

Seemed funny to me that for the beginning of the Fall season that Discovery would have re-runs on already.
Redman, your links refer to the "Amusement Park" house, which aired last season, and was geared towards very small children and was pretty lame: http://dsc.discovery.com/fansites/monsterhouse/houses/amusementpark/amusementpark.html
Tonight's episode is "Theme Park" house and is brand new. Hopefully it will better: http://dsc.discovery.com/fansites/monsterhouse/houses/themepark/themepark.html .

Turn the front porch into a Qbot rental booth, pave the living room, install some overflowing trash cans, and hire some surly people to hang out and generally ignore you, and you have The Six Flags House.
Oh yeah, put a For Sale sign on the front lawn.
That should get the old pot stirred up...

Oops, My bad. But you can understand the confusion...This will be the first (somewhat) similar theme they have done. :)

But then again, how many times has the debate come up on this site that there is a huge difference between an amusement park and a theme park :) Let's see if Monster House
gets it right.

So who watched it and what did you think?
Seemed better than the first 'Amusement Park House', but still nothing great.
I guess maybe what I have in my mind is "Thrill Ride House"

^Thrill ride house is what we need, complete with a working (or not so working!) rocket coaster, drop ride, hypercoaster, b&m, and a roller coaster simulator. That would be worth watching. I hated the show though, more for kids.

I was so unimpressed overall. It was nice seeing actual coaster footage, so I thought there might be something more exciting than what they actually did in the build. I thought that the candy room for the parents, and the odd cabinets just did not fit in. I agree that if they were doing "theme park" the feet and hands were appropriate, but perhaps the "theme" should have been carried throughout the house.
I'm with you Gonch on the "Thrill Ride House". But would they get that right?
Hmmm, how about the "Hyper-Coaster House" :)

It seemed more like they were calling it the "Cartoon House".
Tuesday, September 27, 2005 4:47 PM
if you did watch it then by the end of the episode you noticed that steve kept calling it a cartoon house totally not acknowledging the amusement park house

You guys are right, he was calling it "Cartoon House" by the end of the show.

Did you notice the amusement park they kept showing on the show was kennywood? They kept showing the pittsburg Plunge. The funny part about that was it was filmed from the Kennywood years ago. They showed a further away shot of the plunge, and it had the "old" Steel Phantom on there when it still had loops and the corkscrew. Makes me wonder when this show was really taped.

Perhaps they were just able to secure the rights to that ride footage more easily and cheaper than others. Perhaps they ran into problems getting a hold of Six Flags management (no way ;) ) or Cedar Fair to get different (more local and recent) footage.
