    You just have to imagine "Terminator", "Titanic", "Aliens" and "Avatar" in the same park.

    Alfred Hitchcock

    The "Strangers on a Train" merry-go-round alone would be a scream. But maybe Hitchcockland would have a major body odor problem, no one would want to take a shower at their motel before going in!

    Stanley Kubrick

    Now, that's a good one, have a good read:

    "Dr. Strangelove" World : you could ride an atomic bomb, play around on the DRM 114 in various models of the plane, take part of a war room brawl and try your skills at throwing pies on the commies (based on a deleted scene of the movie).

    In "2001: A Space Odyssey" World, you could test your bravery by touching a monolith. Take a ride taking you through the history of the world/solar system, from the dawn of man, through space stations, ultimately leading to the birth of the star baby. You could try a zero gravity toilet, play chess with HAL, take a virtual ride in a space bug and try to argue with HAL to let you back onto the spaceship.

    It would perhaps be a bit daring to make rides/attractions based on movies like "Paths of Glory", "Lolita" and "A Clockwork Orange". However, the maze from "The Shining" could be a good way to waste some time. You could visit room 114, if you dared. The souvenir store could have copies of Jack Torrance's brilliant new bestseller, "All Work and No Play Makes Jack a Dull Boy". One of the theme park's restaurant could be made to look like the milk bar from "A Clockwork Orange".

    You could join a short shooting course with Gunnery Sergeant Hartman ("Full Metal Jacket"). You could even make an "A.I. - Artificial Intelligence" based world, since he wrote the concept for it.

    And for the adults, who are so inclined, perhaps an orgy at the club from "Eyes Wide" Shut to round off the day..

    Gore Verbinski

    "Pirates of the Caribbean" was already a famous theme park ride, also "The Ring", "Rango", and "The Lone Ranger" (although not the hit that people might've expected, it would still make a fun ride)
