It still baffles me to this day how successful Madagascar is! I did not enjoy those films within an inch of my life. The best park of the entire trilogy was the lemurs dancing and it was recycled in the sequel.

But if it's a decent show then I can accept it. I've been amazed before with a theme park turning a tired movie into something nice. So Move It, Move It Busch Gardens!

Not sure if Manny is referring to another Busch Gardens, but Gwazi is open. The show is in the Stanleyville Theater.

Madagascar was licensed to many companies that it's almost impossible to keep up. Sands, the gambling company, bought Shrek and Madagascar rights for its Macau property.

Frankly, I think Dreamworks is making a mistake by diluting their franchise. Achieving consistent quality control will be difficult to manage.

This is no different with Snoopy that at least two theme park chains have licensing rights.

While Disney have the most characters, they don't use them enough. They seem to license new characters first. It is weird that they are going with Avatar when Star Wars is staring at their faces. Do a Star Wars Land. Get a hint.
