Upside-Down Amusement Park to open in Myrtle Beach, FL

Sorry, but it's not an amusement park. Not anymore than a children's museum could be considered an amusement park. It's a building, first of all. And, hello? It's full of interesting exhibits, but no rides.

It's not an amusement park, so stop saying it's one. The article I read goes on to say it's an "amusement park for the mind." Well then, maybe I should open my office as one, where people can interact with my Barbie collection (which I'll have suspended upside-down from the ceiling), stand on their heads while playing with my vintage Knip Knops and then attempt to use my Etch-a-Sketch while spinning in my office chair.

It's a roadside attraction. Remember those? All it is is a souped-up Mystery House or Mystery Spot (visit to learn more)where visitors would be stunned and amazed by all manner of things defying physics, like water running from a faucet at an angle or a ball rolling up the wall. I respect a roadside attraction that actually admits that's what they are. More power to 'em!
