    Default Charles Dickens theme park set to open

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070418/.../dickens_world


    "CHATHAM, England - In Dickens World, rat catchers hunt vermin on London's cobbled streets, pickpockets roam the alleys ? and visitors line up for a fun-tastic water ride.

    A new theme park inspired by the work of Charles Dickens aims to transform a 70,000-square-foot warehouse near London into a teeming ? and family-friendly ? corner of Victorian England."


    The Artful Dodger hands on pickpocket experience?

    The Tale of Two Cities guillotine ride?

    What about the Apple Cider exhibit..... you know, there's always something good about Dickens' brand of Apple Cider.

    Say it again.

    Should they have two parks? If you go to one, you'll have the best of times, but watch out for the other one, I heard it's not so great. Or something like that.
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    The pounding elephants (factory) from Hard Times? Trolling the river for dead bodies from A Mutual Friend? The boys schools from Nicholas Nickleby?

    Theme parks weren't around in Dickens' time, but I bet he would have some less-than-flattering things to say about them.
