    The End

    The End

    We finally wrap up season 10 and say goodbye, for now(?), to Opposite Attractions by taking a rather long quiz and adding up all the finishing touches to Party Town and JimCity 2.000. We also discuss a little bit of theme park news from the past two weeks, and remind everyone that we will still be doing FAQueue monthly for our Patreon family.


    After 175 total episodes, it's been a hell of a run. Please watch your hands, arms, feet, and legs as you exit and have a magical day.

    Bonus: FAQueue - Disney Springs

    Bonus: FAQueue - Disney Springs

    Jim really wanted to end with a feed of exactly 175 episodes, so we're adding in this Patreon FAQueue about Disney Springs to square everything up. Learn about some of the history of the Marketplace/Island/West Side/Springs and some goofy stories of our experiences hanging out and, in Scottye's case, working there.

    Fight Boyz vs Fun Fiction

    This week, on our penultimate episode, we look back not at ten seasons of this podcast, but at what we could do to make attractions based on all of Scottye's other podcasts. Isn't it just a shame Universal already beat us to most of them?


    Next week we will be sharing another old episode from our Patreon show FAQueue, which we will still be trying to do monthly even after OppAtt goes on its much needed hiatus. We will then come back the following week with our big ole finale.

    The Rock vs Roman Mars

    The Rock vs Roman Mars

    This week, we start things off by discussing Universal's new Velocicoaster, featuring five inversions and not much theming, before moving on to building some attractions with a lil help from celebrities. First up, Scottye invites guests to experience the, well, experience that is Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Presents Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw Presents Dueling Dragons Sponsored By Various Forms Of Alcohol: The Movie: The Ride or whatever. Choose your action star and strap in for this wild coaster also featuring Idris Elba! Meanwhile, Jim has looked at the world a little differently and implores his guests to ride an omnimover around the edge of an indoor coaster for Roman Mars's Most Interesting Coaster Ever attraction, which might also be a TED Talk.


    Can you tell we are getting close to wrapping this up, people?

    Parks And Recs vs Drugs and Rex

    Parks And Recs vs Drugs and Rex

    This week, it's all about those ding-dang dinosaurs once again as we add them into Party Town and JimCity...just where they belong! Up first, Jim holds a meeting over the issues that plagued the original dino themed entertainment complex as he brings to the world Jurassic Parks And Recreation Town Hall Meeting, featuring a strange meat-eating stegosaurus. Then, Scottye wants everyone who visits Party Town to know what is and is NOT a good drug, and has hired Theodore Rex to help him showcase just what will happen if you go down the bad path of illicit substances. We then spend way too long discussing what exactly the title character of that 1996 buddy cop adventure actually looks like.

    Nick vs Sick

    This week, Scottye faces the existensial crisis that is learning about the Disney Parks reservation system in real time for your enjoyment, we do some quizzes about the past, and then get nostalgic for our attractions. First up, Scottye uses a bit of his Tower of Power to rebuild the old Nickelodeon Hotel from just off Route 536, complete with all the horrors it was known for. Then, Jim sends guests on a trip through time (and little hard drive space) as they tackle The Oregon Trail (sponsored without asking by the Minnesota Educational Computing Consortium) by fording rivers, shooting wildlife, and hopefully not dying of dysentery. It's fun for the whole family.

Hold on to your hats!!

Very funny show with two hosts who really love theme parks.

Proof that...

... there’s a podcast about EVERYTHING. These guys create a new theme park every season, coming up with two rides every episode. Some of their ideas are life-threatening but that’s part of the fun of just letting your imagination run, isn’t it?

I just love that there are people who are as nerdy about theme parks as I am about movies.
