The IronMan attraction was just about laundry and a guy yelling at you about how much starch you wanted.
/Hard Pass.

Al-Minārat al-Malwiyyah, Samarra, Iraq has a spiral railing.  China apparently has no liability insurance litigation and stuff.

It's like they hired the production designer from Star Wars. Not one rail in the whole original trilogy.

Snow White and the Six Dwarves?

The Lyin' King?

What other knock-offs do they have?

Is there a point to this thread besides making fun of Chinese people? Have you ever seen the tacky-ass attractions that Honkey-Americans visit?

You know...

If I were Bob Iger, I'd hire some hackers on the sly to insert malware into pre-release digital copies of films, then 'leak' them to China. Hit the pirates with a broadside.

The pirates would look at it, sneer, and mutter "Amateur hour WTF?" and rewrite them so they siphoned even more shiat that wasn't supposed to be released

Once in a while a game developer will do this.  I think one of the most infamous was a batman game where early on you'd have to jump between roof tops but the poisoned pirate copy would make you fall, so you'd see people coming into their forums asking for help with that part and outing themselves as pirates.

The most ironic example was a Game Development Tycoon game that put out a poison pill version that would make it unwinnable by ratcheting up financial losses due to piracy.

To be fair, a Chinese theme park full of cheap knock offs is very on brand.

I wonder if the author honed his edge in the last twelve years.

I've been there...had an evening to kill after a work trip before heading home and did that as part of my wander day. I think admission worked out to 20 bucks if you went at night. There were metal detectors but like everywhere on the mainland they just waved me through when they went off. There was a reasonable number of people, but all the shops and concessions seemed closed anyway.

The weird part were some areas were totally unlit at night but nothing was blocked off, which was kinda surreal walking around what suddenly felt like an abandoned park.
