Why is there no Nintendo World Themepark?

Nintendo could put Disney world out of business (well , certainly not , but they could be a serious competitor).

seriously , who cares about Mickey mouse or Donald duck ? nowadays it's all about Mario , Luigi , Peach , link , princess Zelda , Donkey kong and the countless of Nintendo characters, imagine a theme park modeled after the Mushroom Kingdom , or another after the Hyrule kingdom with the Hyrule castle standing in the middle piercing the sky. wouldn't that be wonderful ?

with the billions they are making now , Nintendo can totally afford it , they could just hire a contractor to do the work for them .

Disney characters are so yesterday, they are not relevant anymore with the newer generation .most kids in past years grew up playing Mario and Zelda games which makes them more popular than Mickey & co

so , Nintendo , here's another cash cow , and it's right before your eyes.

because nintendo is not really thinking straight right now. well maybe because Nintendo isnt good in that area of business. and they probably want to stick with what they know. but they do seemed to be a little messed up right now.

I dunno, it could be pretty cool. For the most part it would just be standard rides with Nintendo themes, but you could also have things like "Warp Tube" a ride that shows what it is like for Mario going through warp tubes. Strapped in, and sent flying through a series of dark tubes.It couldn't compete at all with most major parks, but it would probably still be quite successful.

The OP is totally wrong though. Kids still love Disney, because they had parents who passed on that love to them. That's what Disney World and the whole Disney franchise is. It's not a kids franchise, it's a family one.

Sega tried making a "SegaWorld", which wasn't nearly to the scale of DisneyWorld, but was pretty large. They had a sort of large entertainment center in London, and a larger theme park in Sydney, both went belly up.

I remember a youtube video with some kid in a college class making a concept for advertising a "Nintendo Land"

Yes, that's the voice of the late LaFontaine.

As things stand right now, Nintendo makes the cash they need off video games. They don't need to make a theme park- those cost money, and they don't really have a reputation beyond their fanbase that would go there.

And it's just... I don't know, kind of stupid.

Hyrule, I forgot about that world. I guess Pokemon, and Hyrule would be great for a theme park. Who wouldn't want a picture trying to pull Excalibur, I mean the "Master Sword" from the stone?

Horse rides, white water rafting, archery, target shooting, bomchu bowling, Cucco Parasailing, Treasure Hunting, Goron Roller Coasters in the Mines. Hyrule is a theme park.
