Hey golfers, arrive early and bid on a big, strong caddy at the clubhouse dais before your round.
The theme park will include their own version of Disney's "Pirates of the Carribean" ride by offering tours through a lifesize replica of a slave ship. During the time of the slave trade, merchants were interested only in maximizing their profits and therefore crammed as many people as possible on board these ships for each journey. Chained together with no room to move, many died on the journey from an assortment of horrific diseases. I'm sure that Marlon is hoping this attraction really "packs them in!"
Shucks! Look at the line honey. Let's get Fast Passes for us and the kids and come back after we do the water slides and roller coasters.
Here's the creepiest part - The corner stone of Slavery World will be a Jackson Five museum.
"The Jackson family had been looking for a place to site their memorabilia collection," explained Gary Loster, chief executive of the Motherland Group, to the BBC. "We visited the site of the slave port in Badagry and Marlon turned to me and said: 'Let's put it here, this is right.'"Cool! Nothing honors the sacrificed lives in the horror that was slavery and pays tribute to the influence of African culture and tradition found in our music today than the young Michael Jackson dancing and singing these hits (when he was a black male, before he became a white woman). Agreed?
The development will cater to the country's growing tourism industry, particularly African-American tourists who wish to trace their Nigerian roots. Visitors will be able to explore the site of the former transatlantic slave trade, honour the hundreds of thousands who died in what were horrific human rights abuses, and then head off for a round of golf or a massage, before gawping at animatronic versions of the siblings who sang ABC and I Want You Back.
Maybe the only creepier theme park ever conceived is Michael Jackson's own defunct Pedophile World, or what he referred to as Neverland. I understand the concession stands there were horrible. What if I want something other than milk and cookies?
