I heart you Sid & Marty
Was reading this morn that they are doing a remake of "land of the lost". Could be cool ... could suck. At least its not digital in keeping with the campiness. While my love for all things 70's is fairly substantial, I think I'll wait for this one to hit the $1.50 theater. HOWEVER, in doing some snooping, I found out that Sid and Marty Krofft actually made an amusement park in the 70's. It only lasted 6 months and it sounds so psychedelically amazing. It was massive and all indoors and you can see it at the beginning of the Krofft Supershow.
It had things like a giant carousel adorned with magic crystals, the world's longest freestanding escalator, freaks, carnies and dwarfs everywhere, and multiple levels of giant puppets that had all the characters from the shows.

After the park closed (possibly due to not enough people taking mushrooms), Teddy Turner bought it and turned it into CNN headquarters.
