Planned Transylvanian Dracula theme park hits snag

Posted Thursday, October 25, 2001 6:15 AM | Contributed by Taipan

Here's one for the "not in my backyard" file. A group of residents in Romania are protesting the construction of a Dracula themed park because, they say, it will attract satan worshipers.

Same thing with heavy metal...It's all the devil. This is taking it just a wee bit too far.

I'm kind of with the residents. An amusement park dedicated to Dracula would be over doing it. The Wizard of Oz, on the other hand...:)

I think its a good idea, if more jobs are created. It would really help out the city a lot. And if someone wanted to build a park by my town, let them go do it! I wont complain. even if its based on evil

I can see why it is being protested, but I bet that once the park is built half of those portesters will go there anyway.

It most likley will attract satan worshipers. But themed parks aren't the only thing satan worshipers like. You can basically find them anywhere. So it really wouln't help to protest.
