This is obviously to compete with Orlando Studios which owns the rights to the Harry Potter theme park which has been pulling a large amount of business away from Disney.
Though being able to enter the Death Star and roam the halls of the Jedi Order would be some of the best experiences known to man. It would allow for Disney to once again reign supreme in the theme park industry. These theme parks are said to begin production in the upcoming weeks with Disney hoping to open them up to the general public by the time of the release of the new Star Wars Film.

The National Corvette Museum located in Kentucky was unfortunately devastated by a sinkhole which took away some of the most classic Corvette’s known to history in February. Obviously being an unknown phenomenon which could be extremely dangerous, officials wanted to make this sinkhole an attraction which would bring more visitors to their museum and thus by allow for the museum to earn more money. Those who witnessed this event said that the Corvette’s that fell into the sinkhole looked like Matchbox Cars by the time they had stopped falling to their demise.
“We really wanted to preserve a portion of the hole so that guests for years to come could see a little bit of what it was like, but after receiving more detailed pricing, the cost outweighs the benefit. It would put the museum in a position where we wouldn’t be able to turn a profit for another decade, that profit being estimated by the maximum number of tickets being sold per day. This along with the mass amount of safety hazards that could come with making this sinkhole an attraction lead us to not making the sinkhole an attraction” Wendell Strode, the museum’s executive director, told AP.
None the less the sinkhole has yet to be completely filled up as of right now in the National Corvette Museum. This means that visitors can still see the sinkhole until it is completely filled up with dirt, concrete and various supporting devices such as rhubarb wire.
