Constitution Land

Via Randy Barnett, a brilliant idea from the Harlan Institute:
Constitution Land, a planned theme park from the Harlan Institute, will immerse “we the people” in the Constitution of the United States. Through virtual reality simulators, thrill rides, and entertaining shows, visitors will be able to experience our Constitution, and the Supreme Court, unlike ever before.

“Constitution Land will be a one-of-a-kind experience,” said Josh Blackman, President of the Harlan Institute. “Only the Harlan Institute, and its innovative approach to civic education could create a theme park to inspire students of all ages to learn more our great Charter.”
They list a number of the anticipated attractions, but if I may be so bold I would like to suggest a few more:

The Wickard v Filburn Café, in which none of the food offerings are made from locally grown ingredients.

For those who need childcare, the Korematsu play center - be confident that your kids won't be going anywhere while you enjoy the park.

And when you're ready to leave, before you get in your car you can confirm your sobriety by taking one of an array of complicated and often confusing balancing tests, while between four and five judges from a nine judge panel pepper you with questions that suggest that "you're doing it wrong" and the others argue about the degree to which its appropriate to scrutinize your actions.
