In 2002, Scooby-Doo and the rest of the gang came to the big screen in the popular film, Scooby-Doo. If you aren’t familiar with the plot, check it out here:

Zoinks! Two years after a clash of egos forced Mystery Inc. to close its doors, Scooby-Doo and his clever crime-solving cohorts Fred (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Shaggy (Matthew Lillard) and Velma (Linda Cardellini) are individually summoned to Spooky Island to investigate a series of paranormal incidents at the ultra-hip Spring Break hot spot.

This is one of my all-time favorite films and as a huge horror fan, I have always dreamt of visiting a real-life Spooky Island one day. But clearly, I am not the only one — In fact, there are a couple of different petitions started by various fans for Universal to build a real-life Spooky Island! Check them out below.

The description of the first petition reads:

Petition for an actually Spooky Island theme park from the Scooby Doo movie because it would be one hell of an attraction with the cast cutting the ribbon on opening day!

The description of the second petition, though doesn’t call to Universal specifically, still demands a Spooky Island be built. It reads:

As a long time admirer of Scooby-Doo, I feel a replica of the theme park in our city would bring in vast amounts of tourism as well as a source of interactive entertainment in Albuquerque. The rides, characters, foods, and experience would also entirely capture a more diverse audience. One consisting of children, families, and horror/cartoon fans from all over.

Other Recent Petitions

Fans have been petitioning for changes in the theme parks for years now, but recently, they’ve been floating around the Internet more and more. Check out some of our recent coverage on petitions:
