Beetlejuice finally gets the Minecraft roller-coaster tribute it always deserved

By Matt Kodner • May 8, 2013

It’s not often that fans pay tribute to their favorite films by building terrifying virtual roller coasters in their likeness. In fact, that almost never happens. However, two Minecraft players, Rivergrl21 and Nuropsych1, have done just that. Working in the Creative Mode of the world-building game Minecraft, the two constructed an amazing five-minute long Beetlejuice thrill ride that renders Tim Burton’s iconic imagery in e-block form. While this thing is actually kind of spooky, the coaster—the result of two months’ hard work—is marred a bit by the fact that its soundtrack is an already-dated dubstep remix. Because the whole thing feels so au courant otherwise… [via Uproxx]

    WOW!  That is absolutely brilliant!  The sandworm sections especially are really well done, and the whole finale with the wedding.

    I very briefly fiddled with the idea of a themed rollercoaster in PC Minecraft.  I don’t have the patience for it though.

      “I don’t have the patience” pretty well sums up my attitude toward Minecraft in general. It’s a great thing, and people love it for good reason, but holy hell am I not ready for that.

      The activities in Minecraft bear enough relation to real work that it not only starts to feel like a dull slog, but it reminds me that I probably do have things to do in real space.

      My friend’s 7-yr-old daughter has a bottomless appetite for the game, though.  If she is not playing it, she is watching videos of it or talking about her next project.  If she were an adult, she might very well be the subject of a segment on TLC’s My Strange Addiction.
