I have been doodling one when I should be studying. I need more creative names for stuff. There's a shop called Mathoms in the Shire section, of course restaurants called Green Dragon, Floating Log, and Prancing Pony. There would have to be some guy walking around selling pickles called Tom Bombadil pickles. There would be lots of places to buy armor and clothes. More ideas or is this just stupid?

who wants to invest?!

No, this is not stupid. My first reaction to seeing the title of the thread was "oh, are they going to make one?" lol. They should.

If this a theme park, you're going to need some rides.. or lands to visit - that'd be easy :rolleyes:. You basically need a whole Middle Earth set.

Anyway... lets think. You could have Rodeo Rohan. :confused: Maybe a Mines of Moria Maze. A Shoot The Orc stall. OH! A tree top walk through the Lothlorien woods.

EDIT: A Dwarf tossing contest!! (LLLLLMMMMAAAOO!!!) *wanders out of the thread giggling*

you could have a super-man coaster ride.... named the bridge of Kazza-Du`m, or however you spell it.

I thought you were serious, because to me it seems to be the obvious thing to do with the sets in New Zealand. They made a resort out of the film set for Shaka Zulu (or whatever his name was) in South Africa. So you could make apartments out of the hobbit holes, or the tree-dwellings in Lothlorien. Does anyone know what (will) happen(ed) to the set in NZ?

I had thought of having an Old Forest maze, a roller coaster in Moria where it's like your in mining car things, probably one of those water rides for that river, there would have to be a Gollum restaurant where it would just be seafood. :D Bill, I know nothing of the real world. sorry. :rolleyes:

Thank you, I thought that this was just another one of my ignored threads! :rolleyes: I tried to think of a place that had snowy mountains, some woods, rolling hills, and whatever other geographic features in LOTR, but I don't think there is such a place. I wanted to have a place where you could ski like Legolas probably could on the mountain. even though elves are evil.

And after all that you could go for a pint in the Prancing Pony Bar and grill and look around the Bag End gift shop, where you can purchase mugs, hats and t-shirts saying "I went to Middle Earth and was given a good Tolkien to!"
There will also be the Pippin Rock Emporium and the Gaffer Gamgee Garden's picnic area.

You've forgotten Meriadoc's Herb & Weed Garden! Complete with guided tours and classes such as "learn how to make smoke rings", "the importance of Old Toby" and much more.

(... was give a good Tolkien too! - LLMMAAOO!! Do they make those tshirts for real? Someone should. That's hysterical!)

there would be two places I would love to see:

Smaug's Treasure Mountain (where you get to poke around on a pile of treasure, and then woops Smaug comes back!:))

You Fight the Balrog! (you stand on a thin bridge with a harness on, clash swords with a 30 ft. tall Balrog of fire, then the bridge breaks and you bungee jump into the abyss with the Balrog!)

cool :cool:

And for the kids, you can answer riddles with Gollum gollum:D
