Having apparently decided to challenge Micky Mouse’s cultural sovereignty, the French are supposedly planning an amusement park themed on a little imperialism of their own.
“Napoleonland” (artist’s rendition pictured above) is being championed by French M.P. Yves Jego. Some of the attractions being considered are:
– A ride based on the Egyptian expedition;
– A giant aquarium where visitors will be able to watch a re-enactment of the battle of Trafalgar from below;
– A dry-ski slope that is a re-enactment of the retreat from Russia (!), where patrons would pass by “frozen corpses of soldiers and horses”.
