Go Jonah GoMaybe Jonah wouldn’t think so, but my kids sure would. Can you imagine a modern day ‘Ride to Tarshish‘? You get in a boat (a la the log ride) and traverse the seven seas until a big whale swallows you up… and spits you out to safety. Sweet. Well, that may just happen.

Have you seen this story from Murfreesboro, Tenn.? That’s right amusement park fans, it’s BIBLE PARK USA.

Of course, the Body of Christ is anxiously awaiting the ACLU backing up their dump truck of legal writ as to why this park shouldn’t happen, but until then, let’s brainstorm some attractions:

  1. It’s not a ‘season pass’, it will be a ‘rapture card’ (as in “good until the rapture”)
  2. The Burning Bush transformed into a fully-interactive pyrotechnics show featuring Val Kilmer’s voice as Moses (note the link)
  3. The parting of the Red Sea can be a huge 10-foot walled aquarium
  4. Welcome to the Noah’s Ark petting zoo and the Four Horsemen stallion trick show (come on, you had to see those coming)
  5. A ‘Garden of Eden‘ arboretum (yeah, again, saw it coming)
  6. The Fiery Furnace‘ – a roller coaster that will make ask to be saved
  7. Solomon’s Temple‘ – a married couple’s hotel retreat.. woo-woo.
  8. The ‘In the Beginning‘ Planetarium – watch the universe unfold, well, actually, fold?
  9. In the Lion’s Den‘ big kitty-kat show: Ode to Siegfried and Roy
  10. And of course, ‘Walk on the Water‘ – one false step, kids and glub, glub, glub

Well, whenever it opens, here’s more information. See you there! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
