Lord Of The Rings Theme Park On Its Way?

| Filed under: DisneyOrlando Bloom

There’s going to be a lot of pressure for the actor playing Orlando Bloom’s character to make him look good.

After the success of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, it appears that Universal is looking into the possibility of creating a Lord of the Rings themed amusement park.

Here’s the post, which is rumored to be from Universal, that’s been making its way around competitor Disney's forums:

Imagine if you will a world unlike any you've ever visited before: it's Middle Earth, the ancient and beautiful land forged by J.R.R. Tolkien as the backdrop for his two most well known creations, Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Walk as a human among dwarves, elves, orcs and hobbits — all faithfully recreated and portrayed in the spirit of the original characters as they appeared in both the books and the movies. In this land you'll experience one-of-a-kind rides and attractions that bring to life some of the most memorable experiences of Tolkien's world including Bilbo's hobbit hole, the fortress at Isengard (before it was destroyed) and even the dark world of Mordor — including the terrifying volcanic Mount Doom.

Would U like to see a Lord Of The Rings themed amusement park?

    Yes! A Lord Of The Rings themepark would be awesome. But we're still waiting for a Star Wars one. That should have been done years ago.

    Well, I'm living in the Midlands in England, which is sort of Middle earth, giving the fact that J.R.R. Tolkien used to live here and was inspired by its cave houses.
    Haven't seen any hobbits here, though.

    Don't let Disney have anything to do with it, they'll just fuck it up royally.

    Just go to England. That's what Tolkien based Midddle Earth on. Plenty of real castles n stuff and there's always Alton Towers for the rides :) . Why do US moneygrabbers have to cheapen this mans work. Hopefully his family will block it.

    No thank you, the trilogy has already been cheapened by Hollywood as it is.

    Re: M.t. Dickinson – Really? Funny, since these were some of the finest films I have ever seen, and by far the best adaptations of a master work ever produced. I'll be there if this ever happens.
