What do you think theme parks will be like in another thousand years? Do you still think Disney will still be the master of theme parks? Will be even enjoy theme parks anymore? How high tech will they be? Any ideas?

I am sure at the time they will purely seem modern and our parks will seem ancient. I hope they will still have theme parks then, but if not, at least it will be after my lifetime!

Well after the War with the Machines ends in 2950 me might be able to put the pieces back together and create some type of theme park but I doubt it.

I like to think that after the great theme park merger in the mid 28th century that the newly formed conglomerate of Disney, Sea World, Universal, and Six flags will turn the whole world into a theme park.

The whole world as a theme park....... Ah. Sounds wonderful. I just hope it has a Fast or Express pass available....

All I can imagine are very long lines with the population being massive by that time. I guess we would have to assume we colonize on different planets and disney would move to it's very own planet with just the resorts and parks. It would really be Disney WORLD!

I think there will still be people waiting in line to ride Peter Pan's Flight, except now the time will be measured in months instead of minutes.

I just love Mark Migliaccio's comments. I hope to live in a world where you are never more than 10 minutes from a theme park, no matter where you live in the world and where it doesn't take the British 9 hours to travel to the US!

Mark,

I guess you're thinking Cedar Fair will be a non-entity by then.

Angela, ok...9 hours. But you've got Blackpool, which I might not quite KILL to visit, but...

Anyhow, next month I will, for the first time in my life, visit an amusement park beyond the U.S. border...

You really think we'll all still be here in 3010 ?

People living off-world will be planning visits back to Earth for their holidays. Each continent will be a " land" with central Africa as the main hub in a gigantic wheel designed Park.

There'll be a super coaster that climbs the real Everest before plummeting 1000's of yards and making numerous loops , twists , turns, climbs and drops over a 3,000 mile track. Riders will be fitted in climate and environment control suits ( probably made from aluminum foil ) and a real Yeti will still be in B-Mode.
The ride will last 9 hours and the waiting lines will occupy half of Nepal and have wait times of around 6-8 weeks. The inline entertainment will consist of other diversions such as an extended Kali River Rapids which will take you on a 12 hour journey and Space Mountain Extra for those guests who want to experience what space travel might have been like before the days of suspended animation.

Historians will laugh endlessly at stories of Harry Potter World and tell of times when we didn't have proper jet propulsion broomsticks and wands that didn't actually dispense spells.

The Hall of Presidents will now be a show lasting approx 13 weeks.
Guests over the age of 150 yrs will get front of line priority.

Shrek 9D and Terminator 8D will still be popular.

The Jungle Cruise will remain unchanged.

Rob, you forgot about Spaceship Earth where people can laugh at how we created our possible future. And maybe people will learn how to draw at the Animation building after computers took over our ways to draw things. They might have a museum where you float around disneyland that they wanted to preserve. Would roller coasters really have a height since they might be able to go in space?
there are millions of possibilities. People in 3010 will probably laugh at our thoughts of future theme parks.

Theme parks in 3010 will probably be in space...or underwater....or on another planet.
