Aw. Before its abrupt bankruptcy, Suicide Park also featured the Overdose House of Mirrors and the Slittin’ on the Wrists dance hall.
Been lovin the slightly darker humor you’ve had lately. Keep it up, montrer. ;)
Incredible idea…. not very marketable, though…
the noose is loose :D
So wait, he uses a gun rather than riding one of his own rides? No wonder he went under; Even he wont support his own business!
I wanted to ride “The Jumper”, the park’s award winning roller coaster.
Maybe if he had tried to market it!
“Suicide Park — You’ll have a KILLER time!”
“Suicide Park — Fun to DIE for!”
“Suicide Park — It ain’t your therapist’s office!”
“Suicide Park — The ride of your LIFE (ending)!”
Well, I know Futurama’s Bender would approve of this Theme Park, anyway. One would hope that there’s a Suicide Booth in the park somewhere, though.
how ’bout the tag ‘Someone’s gonna die’?
@Ryan: Thanks, buddy! Channelate has quite possibly been an influence for the darker stuff, actually. :D
@Yacine: Definitely! I thought about using either “It’s to die for!” or “You’ll die laughing!” as a tagline below the sign in panel one, but figured it would get a bit too text-heavy. Oh, and “It ain’t your therapist’s office!” is absolutely my favorite. :D
@Trevory: Hah, was thinking about that as well. I’ve used the ‘someone dies’ tag on a couple other strips earlier where the actual death is only implied, but on this particular strip I figured it would perhaps be slightly funnier in a backwards ironic way if I omitted it.
It looks grim for the smartly dressed theme park proprietor, but don’t count him out yet.
That’s probably a novelty “Pseudocide Gun” from one of his many fully stocked gift shops. When he pulls the trigger it’ll splatter his head with tomato sauce.
Then he’ll remember that he pawned his real gun to pay for the suit.
the problem here was clearly the lack of return customers
Reminds me of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euthanasia_Coaster.
It reminds of a New Jersey amusement park I loved as a teenager called Action Park – on Staten Island we actually called it Suicide Park. It had basically no safety regulations or protocols, like it was designed and built by drunken college kids. That’s wasn’t true, of course – it was only operated by drunken college kids.
It was the source of so many injuries they had to buy the Mount Vernon hospital extra ambulances!
Ah, those were the good old days…
