France's Yves Jego and some of his countrymen are getting set to cash in on past casualties of war and terror.
Napoleonland, a forthcoming theme park, won't feature a cute mouse called Mickey, an adorable elephant called Dumbo, or rides through Space Mountain. Instead, Napoleonland's customers will be entertained by riding through various famous battles or the blood-soaked streets of Paris during the Reign of Terror; their experience will be enhanced with scenes of dying or dead bodies.
To know the future, I've always maintained that it was important to study the past. However, I wonder if people vacationing here learn anything of real import. I might be very wrong, but this new theme park sounds like a real killjoy. Am I wrong?
