Ramen Noodle-Theme Park in Japan

Monday, December 13, 2004 4:34 PM
WTF! Yea thats what I thought too.

Sure the band Destroy! made a song called "Ode to Ramen" but do we really need much more than that for noodles?

Namco (yes the gaming company) is planning a theme park around the history of Ramen Noodles. I got a laugh out of this. Just imangine the themed rides. Not to mention everyones favorite Ramen on a Stick!

Here's The Link to the theme park story.

Like Ramen Noodles need any more advertising! They're already the staple of the college student diet, what are they trying to become the number one family dinner product too? ;)

There'd have to a haunted house with people dropping blocks of noodles and scattering them all over the kitchen, only to be discovered ten months later ... that's some scary stuff.

I heard about the ramen noodle museum a while back...but a theme park? I guess it would make for one heck of a coaster! ;)

Just when you think you have heard it all. ;-)

I think it's a strange, but interesting idea. I mean, we have a park revolved around chocolate, why not create a park celebrating Ramen Noodles? :-D

Do I see a Mac&Cheese, Patio Burrito, or a Budget Gourmet-themed park in the works? ;-)

Taco Bell Land would be cool. ;)

With Meximelt: The Ride? :-P

Not to mention Spam World and Velveetaville.

Velvetaville...sounds cheesy...the name sure does ;)

What about Burger Kingdom? Krispy Kremarium? Six Flags over Piggly Wiggly?

Or going beyond food we could have the world's cleanest amusement park.

Spic and Span Land

Yes but would they tile all the midways so you can slide across them in your socks? Now that would be a kick-ass attraction ...

I still want my Rock and Metal theme park. After all their is already Judas Priest: The Ride :) \m/ >..< \m/

I can only imangine how great Motley Crue the ride would be as a Vekoma booster bike themed to Girls, Girls, Girls.

Not to mention the Cannibal Corpse dark ride.

Just think how great the entertainment would be.

My God, what a funny/adsurd idea.

Metallica theme park named Metalli-Land: a dark ride themed to Enter Sandman (think Revenge of the Mummy) ...beverage stand named Whiskey In The Jar ...a steeplechase dueling ride entitled The Four Horsemen ...a Vekoma "hang n' bang" called The Memory Remains (but you all know it won't after one of those rides) ...a prize game called Hit The Lights ...a Dragster-themed Intamin launch coaster called Fuel ...a video game in the arcade called Kill 'Em All ...and of course, a looper called Lightning...of course so you can have t-shirts that say Ride The Lightning.

Can you tell I love Metallica? ;)

Oh by the way...in a conjoined effort with Ozzy F'n Osbourne Theme Parks, Inc., Metalli-Land will also offer a restaurant where they fry, batter, baste, and serve raw bat!

I don't know why, but your post made me think of this:

If Metallica bought the country to the north of the US, and turned the entire country into a themepark, they could call it... Metallicanada

(yeah, that's one of my worst puns in my life)

Tuesday, December 14, 2004 2:14 AM
What about Metallicaracas? Metallicarson City? Metallikabul? Or my personal favorite...

Metallikingda Ka? ;)

You win.

This round. :)

But the horrible-pun battle has just begun ;)

The gift shops can sell Metallicrap. :)

I like the older Metallica stuff but can't stand anything from Load on. If their was a metal themed park Metallica would have to have it's own area though.

Iron Maiden can have some pretty bad ass rides too, not to mention Eddie their mascot is cool too.
Aces High: an Arrow suspended coaster
Flight Of Icarus: a B&M Flyer
Powerslave: Floorless with an Egypitan theme
Rhyme Of The Ancient Mariner: Swing Ship

I think ther greatest ride ever would be a Dive Machine themed to Dio's- Holy Diver. :)

I still cringe at the thought of Slayer's- Dead Skin Mask gift shop.

I'm still waiting on hearing on what good old Gonch has to say since I know he is still a metalhead at heart!

To keep this somewhat on topic I can just imangine everyones park favorite:
Ram 'N' Dots: with Beef, Chicken, Pork, and Oriential flavors. I just wonder if they hand out small packets for flavor!

Dan, that's just gross, but I like your thinking! :-D

Since we are sorta talking about cheap foods, how about Ravioli Land? ;-)


Tuesday, December 14, 2004 7:09 AM
LOL Tina, I just had ravioli for lunch ten minutes ago :)

So would Ravioli Land have a Pasta Blaster water coaster?
