Draw a logo and I'd buy the shirt
What ties the entire brilliant thing together is the guy on the right in the fourth panel. He's considering it! He is actively thinking the hell out of something Scott said.
Reminds me of "the old abandoned old abandoned amusement park" http://phineasandferb.wikia.com/wiki/Isabella_and_the_Temple_of_Sap (hey, I watch with my kids, don't judge me, anyway it's an awesome show)
In Blackpool, england we used to go on a ride called "The Wild Mouse" which was purposely rickety to make it scarier. At least, I assume that was why it was rickety. http://www.s104638357.websitehome.co.uk/html/wildmouse_main.htm
Oh yeah, and Panel 4 is the story of my life too
I believe I've been to this park - the Army Stadium park in Peshawar Pakistan fits the description quite well...
I have to agree with Moose; Jazzland Six Flags New Orleans would be a great place to turn into AbandonedLand. Hey, mabey that place would finally be successful.
That one was simply amazing! I love it!
I love the John McLaughlin-esque "Wrong!" in panel 1.
I just noticed something that makes Panel 1 my favorite: The orientation of the word bubble makes it clear that Scott streamrolls whatever was being suggested after "runaway..."
Classic! By the way, this concept reminds me a bit of AstroWorld in Houston before they closed it in 2005. The park wasn't doing well, so maintenance appeared to be deferred, and towards the end rival gangs started to appear in packs to claim territory and/or get into beefs. In the end, the park was shut down and Six Flags spent $20 million demolishing it before unloading the now vacant land. Your approach would have made for a much more spectacular ending.
This one is indeed very great Scott! Very LOL!
i would go. i would love it.
Yeah... and you could give all the employees Juggalo like names on their cards like Krazy Thugnutzz. That would be endearing. lol.
Pretty soon you will be able to get a slightly used starter park in Kentunky with a huge boat and throngs of stupid people that will give you tax money to waste.
Agreed on Phineas & Ferb. It is high-larious!
I've actually been on one of these rollercoasters. It was kind of terrifying. I kept thinking I was going to fly off the track and die.
Huh, and I thought I was the only person to have that idea
I would so go to Abandoned Land.
