    You know I'm a budding journalist here, so I'll write all the reviews of the park and put them in the national papers! Its a great idea but I think JK would probably cringe at it!

    hey I could write a daily prophet for the visitors to tell them the latest news!

    Instead of those flying dumbo elephants for little kids, we could have flying hippogrofs. Or for older people, a spider like bumpy ride.

    You could write the updates ad stuff on the website as well!
    I've always wanted to invent a ride, or a new type of rollercoaster!

    I'm not too sure she would actually cringe at the idea. Thought there is the inherrent risk of letting someone like Warner Bros. get too carried away with the entire merchandising idea. I feel that if she has the ability to swing some considerable weight in how things are done, then we have a winner here. Leave me to it people. I'll draft something in early July (If you can wait that long) and send a PM to those with a genuine interest. Both to let people know and get advice/input from all. Then send it off. Who knows, getting paid for a few years just to do something that interests us. Could certainly do a lot worse

    Sounds like it's worth a try. What have we to lose? Are you going to try and contact J K Rowling?

    I think that you were 2nd highest before you left. It's quite scary actually to know how many posts I have in this thread. The theme park idea alone has added a number of posts to my total.

    Actually I think I will try contacting her directly. I hear that she makes a point of reading all her fan mail, so sending something to her would certainly seem like a good idea. Just give me time and we'll see.

    It's not incredibly catchy is it?

    Potter's portkey to magic!

    Try and send it ASAP, as it might take a while to get an answer back.
    Hmmm, slogan....
    Welcome muggles to a place where you can let your imaginations run wild!
    Ok, I'm a bit stuck now (not v. good with slogans!)

    Yeah, I'd certainly give it a shot. Off the top of my head, you could issue everyone entering with wands and have a bit of a laser tag kind of duel. You know that thing where you get an electronic backpack, a special gun and then proceed to hunt your friends in a big arena. With a bit of holographic expertise, and someone rigging up sensors in the right place, I reckon you'd have a kick arse experience on hand. Just imagine it. Get together with a group of friends, get given a wand, piece of parchment with certain spells so you can voice activate your spells, and a map to journey through a maze taking on all your favourite Harry Potter villains/creatures on the way to duelling with Voldemort himself. Throw in a few extra lives and a decent array of actors voices echoing through the corridors and I think you'd have something.

    Hows about it? I've got half a mind to see the bank for a loan now, and that only took me two minutes to think of. (Direct copy of some original ideas of course, but hey) Any thoughts people?

    P.S. - That is the Cub Scout Leader in me showing through.
    That would be soooo! cool. That could be the whole themepark. Go in strores and stuff and randomly encounter other people and enemies.
