#MicroblogMondays 47: Treasure Island
Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
Mental Floss had an article about Disney’s abandoned Discovery Island. I don’t have strong feelings about the space like I do about the abandoned River Country (I loved that place!), but I was totally intrigued by an idea floated in the article:
Soon after the island closed, Disney met with Robyn and Rand Miller, the creators of the hugely popular computer games Myst and Riven, hoping to recreate a real-life version of the adventure game. A certain number of guests would be admitted to the island each morning and would have a set number of hours to explore, unlocking secrets and finding hidden passages in the process. No two experiences would ever be the same.
I clicked around and read more about the abandoned project.
What? I want to go to the Myst-themed amusement park. I want my own real-life adventure.
We have something similar-ish sounding here in DC (and I know it’s in a lot of other towns). You get locked in a room and have to solve a mystery and get out.
What do you think: sounds fun or not your cup of tea?
