“Justice League” ride to open up at Australia theme park

Posted by on

Warner Bros. might be reviving the Justice League for a new movie, but it sounds like DC’s ensemble of superheroes is going to be headed to Australia’s Warner Bros. Movie World first.

The official website for the theme park has posted new information about the ride, which they’re calling “Justice League: Alien Invasion 3D.” The shooting dark ride (similar in style to the “Buzz Lightyear” one at Disneyland) will feature familiar characters like The Flash, Supergirl, Superman and Cyborg. It also is some pretty major proof that Warner Bros. wants “Justice League” to be a major franchise for them. Who knows, maybe some of the characters we see in the ride will be included in the movie as well.

Entertainment Designer has some information about how the story will be laid out. Riders will enter the queue, only to find out via newscast that the Justice League is being assembled to fend off a group of alien invaders. Cyborg recruits the batch of visitors, and teaches them how to use the “guns” attached to their “custom tactical assault vehicle” to fight the “alien spores” infesting the world. It’s then up to the rider to defend Gotham City from the invaders, hoping to rack up as many points as possible by the end of the adventure. The ride ends with a big showdown between Superman and an as-yet-unnamed evil villain.

The ride seems pretty cool, and it will be interesting to see if the quality level of the 3D screens and animatronic figures that Warner Bros. Movie World is putting together for this attraction are on par with some of the big rides that recently opened up in the United States, like “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey” and “Transformers: The Ride.” We don’t really have an equivalent of Movie World stateside, but maybe WB can make a deal to bring it to Disney or Universal or something. Fingers crossed for this, and an impending official movie announcement. “Justice League: Alien Invasion 3D” is set to open in September.

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
