InSanity lurks Inside Rumor Alert- Parques Reunidos may buy Miami Seaquarium

Oh God, IT'S A TRAP!
Honestly, you people believe Seaworld is bad? Miami Seaquarium is far, far worse and now they just might be purchased by the Spanish Company Parques Renunidos and their US company arm- Palace Entertainment.

 Finding Nemo Submarine Ride Gets Extended Refurbishment. Alright, this makes me a little uncomfortible because of Disney's track record with their 'submarine' rides. Remember, this is what was going to happen at Disney World...

InSanity lurks Inside Gasparich Strikes Again- Banbury Cross WILL be Re-themed in 2014

Yes, you heard me correctly. The entrance area of Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Banbury Cross, is being re-themed. Re-themed to match Gasparichs' newest pet project- London Rocks. The area will now take on a 1960's 'psychedelic' feel to match the era in London proper.

...I don't even know what to think right now.

InSanity lurks Inside Rumor Alert- The Hunger Games.. In a Theme Park?!

W. T. F.
Seriously, Hunger Games? As a Themed Land or Attraction? How is this a good idea! Although apparently someone out there believes it is as LionsGate has stated they are in 'talks' about developing a theme park presence for the franchise.

Welcome to Insanity Lurks Inside!

This is the public profile for the theme park blog Insanity Lurks Inside. Updates and Info in regard to US theme and amusement parks, news, opening attractions and other such goodies will be posted for your viewing pleasure.

An escapee from Orlando, Florida attempting to find her way back. Fascinated with all things amusement and theme park! Not just another blog about Disney, even if they are fun to spy on since they build constantly!  Happy to report on the smaller, more local parks that so many often over look for the big name parks.

Currently residing someplace in banishment outside of Pittsburgh, PA which really just makes it more convient to see those lovely local parks!

If you spot news about a park local to you, please feel free to tag me in the post! I'll happily re-share since I can't stop everything if I don't know about it!
