It’s taken 18 years, but Titanic fans will finally be able to experience the thrill of the movie in real life…in 3 more years.

20th Century Fox has just announced that in 2018, they’ll be opening a themed amusement park and resort called 20th Century Fox World in Dubai. In addition to Titanic, the park will feature attractions and sections dedicated to beloved franchises like Ice AgeAlien, Rio, Planet of the ApesPredator and The Simpsons. The massive project is expected to cost roughly $850 million, Variety reports.

According to the press release, the park will offer “a broad attraction mix, ranging from media-based dark rides to thrill rides that will tell new stories based on Fox film and television brands.” There will also be shops and dining options based off of the various shows and movies.

“We are working on creating an immersive experience that includes motion theater simulators and will allow you to experience what it was like to be on the Titanic in an exciting way,” President of Fox Consumer Products Jeffrey Godsick told Variety.

Beyond that, we have no idea what to expect — will there be Titanic-themed food in the Titanic section? What is Titanic-themed food? — as it looks like specific details are still under wraps.

What we do know is that if there isn’t a Jack and Rose “I’m flying” ride, we’re going to throw a temper tantrum.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
