Titanic Adventure Slide

Tragedy + time = comedy. "This incredible slide captures the heart of both young and old with its beautiful design and fast dual slide lanes."

Some bloated blow-up dolls wearing life-preservers, scattered randomly about the lawn would help create a more realistic feel.

Or musical deck chairs to rearrange.

And what about the recorded screaming?

Ah! They've been setting up something like this (just a boat sinking, no iceberg, but still called "Titanic") at the annual festival in my hometown for years. I always thought it was a bit wrong. Glad to see I'm not the only one.

I don't know, it happened a long time ago, isn't it about time someone started making some money off the tragedy?

If they brought this to a party, I'd get drunk and play on it.

Sure, its mildly ghoulish but its still pretty neat.

Will it be 92 years before we see the 9/11 drop slide?

What biffa said. I want to see a World Trade Centre bungee jump, a Hindenburg bouncy castle and a Great Johnstown Flood lazy river!

This old thread covers the tragedy that I'd most like to see turned into a party game. Maybe combined with the Titanic slide in some sort of DoubleDare type obstacle course?

.kobayashi., I never saw that thread -- that's amazing! I agree, it would make a great DoubleDare game. But with girls in bikinis.

party games I'd like to see:
Andrea Yates SplashMobile
Manson Family Pin-The-Knife-In-The-Pregnant-Actress
Jackie O's Brain-Spattered Limo Ride

Oh my god, I can't go on

Jackie O's Brain-Spattered Limo Ride

I've often thought that the Sixth Floor Museum could use a video-game style recreation. It would be awesome - you'd have a rifle stand set up in the window, with a sign - "Can you make the shot?"

Winners would get a little pin saying "I shot JFK."

It's be a lot more thrilling if it were to scale. And if at the bottom of the slide, there was very deep, ice-cold, oil slicked water to plunge into. Hilarity would ensue.

OMG. That is so sick, Jart, it's brilliant. You should see about getting a government grant to implement it!

They had one of these at the TN State Fair this year. I had the same thought as The Card Cheat about a WTC bungee jump. Or maybe a Chechen Rebel Shootout?
