I don't remember Mr. House sending me to this location. It'd probably be full of Fiends, anyway.
Rodents of Unusual Size
I watched about ten minutes of this before submitting and then discovered it myself.
I keep thinking maybe the ruins DIDN'T WANT US TO SEE THEM
This is wonderful. I have a serious non-sexual fetish for urban exploration and "modern archaeology".
Uncommonly good graffiti. 'Round here it's mostly just huge dicks.
Only in the middle of no where between LA and Las Vegas would you find unreadable gang tags, delusional warnings of whatever and the genius comedy of bored frat boys. (By their quality I'm gonna say the swastikas are the frat boys' too, comedy gold)
I always find these abandoned theme park videos kind of sad, and scary, for whatever reason. Yet at the same time I find myself drawn to, and completely fascinated by them.
Like many abandoned theme parks, this one's history is a trainwreck riddled with legal troubles and poor business decisions.
And just think, this whole thing started as a family affair.
After the Battleship movie was announced, I desperately tried to come up with a good concept for another movie based on a kids game. I ended up drunkenly writing the Hungry Hungry Hippos movie made gritty for today's Hot Pocket feedbag audience. The plot was a private company built a desert resort in the middle of the Sahara desert and turned it into a beautiful oasis full of water and extremely exclusive and were trying to gain rights to be their own nation. The owner of the resort was a mad man hell bent on doing something real bad and was using the resort to make more money and was really expensive. Vin Diesel, The Rock and Channing Tatum are part of an elite recon team that were sent to report what plot the CEO had. Everything was going fine until their chopper was shot down by an unknown assailant and they were left to fight their way out of 300 square miles of jungle. Along their way they find out what the CEO is actually planning. They are attacked by genetically modified hippos that are faster and stronger than normal hippos and, as a result of the modification, they are brightly colored and always hungry... for blood! The team fights their way through the jungle while facing man and hippo alike. At the end they crash a luxurious banquet where the CEO unveils his plot for world destruction; the hippos. Everyone claps because they are all evil terrorists from the middle east! But our heroes befriend the hippos and use them to destroy the rich peoples' good time, kill the evil CEO and get back home in time for supper
Not too long ago the waterslides were still up, much spookier
it's amazing how the desert preserves stuff like this. on the east coast, all the buildings would have collapsed long ago.
