    The Logical Next Step for Ben Hur

    First there was a book, then a stageshow and a film, then a courtcase, a film and another film. Now, all of a sudden there's a mini-series, an arena show, a radio play, a video game. Where else has Lew Wallace's Ben Hur to go? Why a theme park of course.

    According to IMDB this is already on the way.

    Whilst I imagine the sea battle ride and the chariot ride will be great fun, I can't imagine the queues will be too long for the weeks-long trek across the desert, and the crucifixion ride might attract the odd complaint. I imagine that attendance will cost a little more than a cold cup of water though.
