Napoleonland. Really?

Really?  France is building a theme park around Napoleon? I’m not sure having the Emperor come off as second fiddle to some parks featuring a cartoon mouse is going to do much for the national pride.

Can’t wait to get on the ‘Retreat from Moscow’ coaster or the ‘Battle of Trafalgar’ log ride.

They may need to rethink the marketing campaign a bit:

Other curious potential attractions include a ski run through a battlefield "surrounded by the frozen bodies of soldiers and horses" and a recreation of Louis XVI being guillotined during the revolution – the precursor to Napoleon’s rise to power.

"It’s going to be fun for the family,” he Mr Jégo told the Times.

Yes, because the guillotine is always good family fun.
