C'mon kids, let's go to Army World!

Tuesday, August 8, 2006; Posted: 9:52 a.m. EDT (13:52 GMT)

FORT BELVOIR, Virginia (AP) -- The Army is considering a proposal to allow a private developer to build a military-themed park that would include Cobra Gunship rides and bars including a "1st Division Lounge."

Military officials said a massive entertainment and hotel complex built next to a national Army museum could draw more than 1 million people a year. But authorities in Fairfax County are objecting because of already traffic-clogged roads surrounding the proposed site.

Great idea. Lets have a British Army world. I sugest we use the site of my mums pub. Every kid gets thier own pair of "dessie wellies" & maroon T-shirt on entrance (drain pipe jeans & fleece cost extra). They are then force fed several gallons of beer before fighting with one another, then lapsing into one big bezzering session. Where they can offer thier sisters hand in marrige to thier new chums. Before telling them they,ll rip thier fcukin liver out if they fcuk her about. Its a roller coaster ride kids !!!!!!

Once you have finished your day in "British Army world" you are kicked out on the street without a care in the world & told to be a good boy/girl.
Do come back again !!!

Sounds very much like the kids' tour at the RA Firepower Museum, Woolwich.

will they have a form of the Ol' style photography where their head is digtised onto that of someone doing a HALO? Or a ride where they are the first through the window of the embassy? with a small nominal charge to have the certificate to prove this. Or you could have a part where the people who are in get to sweep gradges while they see the people outside picked out of the line and taken straigh to the big rides? :D

Will this be an opportunity for the Septics to do yet another re-write of history to enable them to show that the Good ole US of A did not win every war since mankind began on their own!

I wonder if you can queue up for pictures & get autographs of all the characters...

'Mommy, I want a Patton, NOW!!!!!!'

'So who was that guy's picture we got?'
'Think it was Dan Daly'
'What film was he in'
 
#12
If Patton were to be there he'd just have to be in the medical centre, accusing the kids of cowardice and slapping them about a bit before sending them back out to break the other leg.
 
#13
I wonder if Pte Golden has applied for a job there yet??

Let's face it, America will always build everything bigger and better than we ever could. They will probably have investors queing up to chuck money their way, they are so patriotic. Our 'Army World' would be one very old landrover being driven round a car park with several unimpressed looking kids!

I think you're onto something there, maybe ARRSE could do a mail order service, just think of all the old pictures we have from around the world and from various events, this could be a real money spinner. "Have yourself pictured next to the Queen as a a member of the Lifeguards!" or "Apache pilot" the list is never ending, hell I bet we could do a roaring trade in Telic and Herrick photos for all the walts.

"Want to impress the girls down the pub, watch them drop their nickers when you produce a picture of you fighting the Teleban in the 'stan thanks to the new ARRSE photowalts (c) TM service only from ARRSE. Your face on a Para uniform 'giving it some'..click here to buy"

I can see the money rolling in...kerchinggggg..£££££ :D

I think it's an excellent idea!!! Will you be able to get 'just seen off for JPA actuals' photos, or 'leave cancelled, pack your bergan' pics? :) :) :oops:
