Paramount launches theme park
South Korea, get ready! In 2011 Paramount Pictures is set to open a theme park based on its movies in Incheon, about an hour from Seoul. The film company's top earners include Mission: Impossible and Laura Croft: Tomb Raider.
The park is set to have over 30 attractions and expects to get over 5 million in attendance its first year. I have no idea how that compares to either of the Disneys (my childhood love Disney World or Disney Land) but it sounds small.
One thing that has been confirmed, and that sounds great, is that Asian pop culture and entertainment will be woven into the park's theme. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Universal are also interested in opening parks in South Korea as well. Apparently, SK is THE hopping new place. My question: Will they get a Six Flags???
