The Newest Theme Park Featuring Rides Based On Blockbuster Film Franchises Just Opened, In China

When I think of the best place to build a theme park featuring rides based of some of the most popular movie franchises from the last two decades, my first thought isn’t Hengqin Island in Zhuhai, China.

Now the name sounded interesting but I didn’t know if I’d have the time to visit. When I saw that the weather would be bad, I read more about the museum right before my trip. I almost fainted as it looked like I found Geek Nirvana. Continue reading “The Most Fun I’ve Ever Had At A Museum”
