    A great idea!

    Q: What to do for a new land that will be popular but won't cost a billion dollars?

    A: Geriatric Land.

    Just put in plenty of benches, some big band orchestras, a couple ODV carts selling blankets, and voila, "the land that rests".

    No kids allowed, especially teenagers with that loud music, and no cell phones!
    ECV carts reduced to half price and defibrillators on demand.

    Can you think of any other amenities?

    No offense but I think this thread is in very poor taste (and I'm not even in that age bracket).

    I don't know.

    Matlock Mountain.

    Hey, being an ancient guy myself, the "Geriatric Land" sounds to me to be a bit clinical. How 'bout something more upbeat & playful? "Yesterland" is taken, so maybe "Curmudgeon Country"? "Geezerland"?

    Risky thread to post in the Forums, anymore. This place doesn't have much of a sense of (black) humor anymore, my friend.

    Speaking for myself, slow versions of the rides that now give me motion sickness. "Senior Mountain" "Star Tours; the Journey Slows Down", and "California Mildly-yelling". And put in all the rides we boomers remember; Inner Space, People Mover, the Original subs, et al.

    Oh, and a bar, with lots of hard liquor.

    I am in that age bracket and see nothing wrong with expressing a new idea!

    You got to admit it's better than "What is your favorite ride" thread.

    Credibility is to be sought for. Credulity is not. Sadly the latter is our normal human state.

    We'll need some sort of track system to keep our ECV's headed the right way.

    Some sponsors could be:
    1...Depends
    2...Hearing aids are Us
    3...The walker shop
    4...Naps Unlimited

    Wasn't this basically what The Plaza Gardens were? haha

    (I think there were even defibrillators in that area)

    Re: A great idea!

    Would this land have imagineered lawns for the participants of the land to stand on and yell at people on the other side of the boundary line?
    There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.
