Plans for Disney’s California Adventure’s remake clearly show that Maliboomer is going to be replaced — probably with shade trees, benches, and an interactive fountain. The Save Maliboomer organization has arisen to protest the destruction of one of DCA’s most visible attractions.
“We don’t want Maliboomer to end up like Mr. Lincoln, mothballed, forgotten, and rented out to frat parties for petty change,” said Save Maliboomer founder, Larry “Boomer” Lawrence. “They can retheme the attraction if they like, by giving it a new soundtrack or adding cool stickers to the barf shields or something. But close it down? No way!”
Lawrence, whose organization’s members number in the low single digits (if you include his girlfriend), plans to have a Web page up as soon as he has a chance, what with him having been moved to the night shift at Costco and all. The site will have up-to-the-week information and an online petition that Lawrence is pretty sure will be legally binding on Disney.
