The Yoda Riglet Park's Star Wars theme will probably appeal to the rad dads more than the 3- to 6-year-olds it's aimed at, but the fact that Burton have buddied up with Sierra-at-Tahoe to create a kid-oriented park is frickin' awesome whichever way you look at it.


While nothing will ever redeem George Lucas for taking a Death Star-sized dump on one of our favourite childhood movies with his horrendous prequels, this is at least pretty cool. All the features are geared towards guiding ├╝bergroms through their first attempts at freestyle in a zone of their own under the watchful eye of Master Yoda with kid-friendly features and a bunch of sculptures of characters from the films. We can't imagine it'll be long before the Jar Jar Binks one is decapitated, though...
