Moon World

Pay once at launch pad, all rides free.

Space tourism would seem to be the next use for extra planetary travel, Its likely that this sector will expand over the next century, as we have more money, and less original things to do with it.

Its not to hard to concieve that we might eventually have some permanent station on the moon, except that the first question asked when this is proposed is 'whats the point?'

Well how about a great big theme park on the moon. I imagine all sorts of new and unusual rides could be created in the low gravity conditions. and it would draw money in to the region, and provide employment.

Forsaken on the Moon, How Will We Breathe? http://www.everythi...20048&lastnode_id=0
"We are the moon bees, the souls of unborn children". Film review of lunar movie made by 1920s nuns. Nothing to do with the idea or my annotation. NB: This girl also invents saints. [pottedstu]

Futurama Episode Two: The Series Has Landed http://www.tvtome.c...owid-249/epid-1535/
Matt Groening already thought of it. That was a pretty funny episode. No one seems to remember the song the animatronic robots sang: "We're whalers on the moon. We carry our harpoons, but there ain't no whales so we tell tall tales and sing this whaling tune." [pottedstu, Feb 07 2002, last modified Oct 21 2004]

A solution... [NickTheGreat, Aug 04 2002, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       You sir, are a profiteer!

       I thought the point of going to the moon was to defeat the armies of Selenites and enslave them in gigantic cheese mines running hundreds of miles into the lunar surface. Only after the cheese mines are exhausted, would we turn them into cheese mine visitor centres, with old Selenites who used to work down the pit guiding parties of schoolchildren on educational visits.

       When I first began reading this idea, I had visions of row upon row of naked posteriors. I guess I was cracking up....   

       Moon World has no zip, no pizzazz. How about The Lunar Bin. Or The Full Moon-ty. Moon Over Miami. In honour of the 1/2b: Half Moon World.

       As with almost everything, I see no reason why row apon row of naked posteriors shouldn't be involved in some way. Possibly as landing guidance markers for shuttle craft. Of course some new form of see through space suit that still blocks out the harmfull effect of the suns rays will have to be designed.   

       Oooo! new idea - fasion space suits! for the sophisticated, discerning extra-vehicular traveller. I can see it now 'Zircon Designs' - offices in London, New york and the Sea of Tranquility.   

       Oh yeah, and how about Disney-Moon (they have a world already might as well have something to provide it with tides...)
Zircon, Feb 08 2002

       zircon - is your real name Matt Groening? (slight hint of bakedness) also guaranteed to happen in real life doesnt mean it wont be really cool   

       designer spacsuits would be brilliant though, croissant for the space suits

       Could be a great hit, jumping cows, caves of the "Man in the moon", candy Moon dust and Moon shine drinks, crater "whack 'o' tack".......

       Zircon, see Ryan O'Neal in "So Fine", 1981.

       Stay away from the moon. Leave us alone. Who sent for you?
samqpellus, Feb 09 2002

       You want the Moon on a stick, you do... the Moon on a stick!   

       <grinch>Sorry though, mate; I have to fishbone this on the Theme-Parks-Are-Evil principle. It'd just lead to Disneyfication of the Moon... or a huge roller-coaster across the lunar landscape that spelled out the Coca-Cola logo... or other such aesthetic atrocities.</grinch>

       Dollywood on the moon. Low gravity=bigger busts.
pottedstu, Feb 10 2002

       Is that a good thing, pottedstu?
bristolz, Feb 10 2002

       There was one good idea I seem to remember that provided a solution to the 'living on the moon' problem... see link
NickTheGreat, Aug 04 2002

       Funny. But you need a good means of transportation. After all, the tickets are no good until you arrive.
empty89, Jan 07 2004

       Don't let them nick you. Zircon. What you propose will be done. Perhaps even in your lifetime. Cash in.
MauiChuck, May 27 2005

       Leave it be and sell it as a place that you can get away from everything, and we mean EVERYTHING!
