Inframundo de Athan is an entertaining journey to the underworld

first_imgRelated posts:Here’s why you shouldn’t miss Costa Rica’s International Book Fair Social travel show looks for San José’s hidden gems A tattoo convention, Russian ballet and other happenings around Costa Rica After three-year hiatus, Blues Festival plays in Guanacaste After 10 months in Costa Rica, I had somehow never heard of the amusement park on the edge of San José. Originally established as the Parque Nacional de Diversiones in 1981, the place was built to help fund the National Children’s Hospital. The idea is that the colones spent on roller coasters and Ferris-wheel rides end up helping sick kids. It’s like a healthcare system designed by Willy Wonka.“Would you like the regular pass or the special pass?” asked the woman in the ticket booth.“I’m mostly interested in seeing… um…” My Spanish interaction stalled, because I couldn’t remember the word “Inframundo.” It translates as “underworld,” so I kept thinking it was called “Debajotierra” or something. Finally I gave up and said, “One special pass, please.” A mural near the entrance sets the colorful tone of Parque Diversiones. Robert Isenberg/The Tico TimesAt first I didn’t mind that no friends had time to accompany me. That’s cool, I thought. I’ll just go alone. I hadn’t considered what that meant: I was a poorly shaven 34-year-old male Gringo wandering alone in an amusement park full of Tico kindergartners. With my red beard and bleached skin, I tend to stick out already in the streets of San José, but in Parque Diversiones I might as well have been a rhesus monkey. Costa Rica has enough creepy foreigners to worry about without a goofy journalist raising red flags.I weaved my way through the park, following the spidery paths past rides and kiosks. Parque Diversiones is a fairly standard theme park, with its looping coasters and carnival atmosphere. The park’s mascot is Tío Conejo, or Uncle Rabbit, a floppy-eared lagomorph so youthful-looking he should really be called Nephew Rabbit. In the center stands the Pueblo Antiguo, which mimics a traditional Costa Rican town.But Inframundo de Athan is something completely different. The structure is painted black and gray, and in order to reach the entrance, you have to pass an enormous sculpture of a horned demon with bulging eyes and outstretched claws. Performers roamed the walkway outside, but unlike the park’s usual bunch of magicians and clowns, these guys were imposing and satanic. One guy wore gothic eyeliner and a cape, and a makeup artist had drawn fake abdominal muscles on his naked torso. Just your friendly neighborhood demon surveying his domain. Robert Isenberg/The Tico Times“Are you alone?” asked one of the park employees.“Yes.”“Okay, just wait right here.”It took me a second to realize we were speaking in English. The young man in the polo shirt uniform stood near me, looking increasingly excited to use his English skills. He finally asked where I’m from, stressing each syllable like an ESL teacher. We chatted for a bit, and then he herded me into a group of seven strangers.“Have…” he exclaimed, almost bursting with enthusiasm. “Fun!”“Thanks, I will,” I called back, although I had no idea whether I could keep that promise.“Inframundo” takes groups of eight at a time. My group included two preteen boys, a preteen girl, three skinny little kids, and a stoic-looking father. We stood in a long line that snaked around metal barriers. Of the hundred or so people waiting, the mean age was probably 13. Above us, two TV screens played music videos, which made me feel even older, because the only pop star I recognized was Shakira.Every few minutes, the music stopped and a gravelly voice explained the concept of “Inframundo.” The story is remarkably complicated: Apparently there was once a warrior named Athan, and he journeyed into the Underworld of a distant planet to retrieve a relic called the Quartz Pyramid, but Athan failed in his mission. Somehow, this caused a mystical rift in the fabric of reality. Paranormal activity is spilling into our world, and we – daring middle-schoolers and 34-year-old Gringos – must journey into a labyrinth of terror.This answered my question: “Inframundo” is basically just a haunted house. Why a haunted house in July, when Halloween is still four months away? Because the attraction’s two weeks coincide with Costa Rica’s mid-year school vacation, when kids need to fill their afternoons by cavorting with demons from another dimension.“Excuse me,” said one of the 12-year-old boys. “Do you speak Spanish?”“A little,” I said, erring conservatively.“Okay. Um…” He looked at my iPhone, which I was using to take pictures. “You know that this is a water ride, right?”“A water ride?”“Yes. You’re going to get completely wet.”Just then I heard screaming. At the far end of the “Inframundo” building, there was a large glass box reinforced with iron bars. It looked like an ATM booth designed by Tim Burton. The box was filled with people, whose bodies were pressed against the glass. I watched in horror as torrents of water fell from the ceiling, drenching their clothes. T-shirts stuck to bodies. Jeans changed color from light blue to navy. Hair clung to faces like seaweed. Shrieking children are subsumed in water. Because nothing says fun like a freezing group shower inside a cage. Robert Isenberg/The Tico Times“So… it might be bad for your iPhone,” the kid said helpfully.I had missed this tidbit, among the warnings to pregnant women and people with heart conditions, that “Inframundo” involved water. Torrents of water. Monsoons of water. Water enough to wreck my phone and all the paper in my pockets.But I had already waited for 20 minutes, listening to One Direction videos and playing a crummy knockoff of Tetris, and I hadn’t come all this way for nothing. So I stuffed the phone deep into my pocket, hoping that bending over a little or covering the fabric with my hand would keep the downpour from my wrecking my poor 4S.At last a park employee ushered us toward the entrance. But before we could step inside, we were asked to enter information into a computer screen. One of the kids punched his name into a digital form and picked an “avatar.” I hoped that I wouldn’t be asked to do the same, because I had no idea what the point of this was. As it turned out, the kid’s data-entry sufficed, and we proceeded. The door opened, and we ventured inside.Even for a haunted house, “Inframundo” is incredibly dark. It’s so dimly lit that I found myself feeling around with outstretched arms to even find the walls. This felt cheap. Why wouldn’t eight strangers feel tense after they’ve been sealed inside a narrow, pitch-black corridor? We hobbled up some steps and slid through the maze, bumping into walls and each other. I kept hearing breathing and gargling, presumably from the Underworld demons, although the stoic Tico father may have had a cold.In one small chamber, one of the demons appeared and demanded that we line up against the wall. Then he leaned into me and growled something incomprehensible.“Él no habla español!” shrieked one of the 12-year-old boys.Great, I thought. Thanks, kid. Like this isn’t awkward enough.“Engleesh?” snarled the demon.“Sí,” I said. “I mean, yes.”“Seet down on the floor!”This can’t be good, I thought.But I sat down, then the others did as well.“On the count of three, run for the exeet!” commanded the demon, and then he repeated the instructions in Spanish.He counted, but the kids started running at “uno.” The demon sounded annoyed as he repeated the count in English, but I was already rounding the invisible black corner, trying to keep up with my group.The truth is, I love haunted houses, and as we acclimatized to the claustrophobic maze, I found myself enjoying it more and more. When we stumbled into another computer screen, one of the little kids took command: The screen asked a question and offered multiple-choice answers. Before I could translate it, the kid had already picked the right answer and we were again plunging through the dark. For a moment, we stepped into sunlight, passing a swampy little pool with monstrous heads poking out. The moment we passed them, the heads spat jets of real fire. I was delighted to feel infernal heat on my back. Nice touch, I thought.At one point, we found ourselves locked into a cage and spritzed with water. Our platform shifted over a primordial lagoon, and I thought nostalgically of “Johnny Quest” cartoons.When we finally reached the exit, I prepared myself for a thorough soak, but the glass box was empty. On the other side, the door hung ajar. The stoic Tico father and I made a beeline for the door and slipped into fresh air. It hadn’t occurred to me that the “Inframundo” designers would allow their visitors a chance to escape before raining cold water on their heads. We were free, only slightly moist, and my phone was safe. We had escaped the Underworld unscathed.I couldn’t help but smile as I walked away from “Inframundo.” Someone had put a lot of thought into this little attraction, and even if it wasn’t a spectacular haunted house, even if its plot was overzealous, and even if it was dark enough to get completely lost, it was still a good time. Granted, the commercials seemed completely off base. (Where was the scary undead girl?) But the spot had motivated me to go, and that’s what commercials are for. A busker dons 18th century fashion. Like the creepy girl in the ‘Inframundo’ commercials, his purpose is unclear. Robert Isenberg/The Tico TimesLater I discovered that “Inframundo” is also an online videogame, and if you rack up 5,000 points, you may win a Playstation PS4 or 10 annual passes to the park. So aside from the fate of the universe, there is a lot at stake here. And again, proceeds benefit sick kids.The only thing on my schedule that afternoon was to survive a trip to the underworld, and now I had plans to meet friends for dinner. But I couldn’t leave Parque Diversiones without riding El Búmeran. In the spirit of a boomerang, the rollercoaster twirls in one direction, stops, and then rides the same course backward. I hadn’t ridden a rollercoaster for half a decade, so when the park employees locked me into my seat and the cars started to back up the incline, I was thrilled.“Have you done this before?” I asked the crew-cut grade schooler next to me.“Oh, yeah,” he said. “Lots of times. After we stop, you count to five, and that’s when they let us go.”“Really?”“Yeah, watch.” The rollercoaster stopped moving. We were held fast, at a 45-degree angle, and we were high enough to see all the way to Escazú. As we stared down the curving track, the kid counted. “Uno… dos… tres… cuatro…” Then he shouted: “CINCO!At that moment, the locking mechanism released us, and we dropped perilously downward. And I remembered, in that moment, as my stomach surged toward my throat, exactly what it’s like to be 10 years old.“El Inframundo de Athan” continues through July 13 at Parque Diversiones, San José. Daily, 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. ₡1,700-3,100 ($3.50 – $6). Info: Parque Diversiones website. Facebook Comments “For whom is the funhouse fun?”                                   – John Barth, “Lost in the Funhouse”When I first watched the commercial for “Inframundo de Athan,” I knew I had to see it for myself. In the TV spot, a little girl is crouched over a bed. At first she looks innocent and frightened, but the way the camera jiggles and zooms shows us that the girl is actually evil, and we should fear her. When I saw the ad, I stared at our TV set, astonished. I hadn’t seen a commercial that creepy for a long time. What was “Inframundo”? What was the Parque Diversiones, for that matter? I had to find out.last_img read more

Royal Jordanian undergoes digital transformation with Amadeus

first_imgThe airline signs for a full suite of Amadeus IT solutions, and renews its distribution agreement with Amadeus, to improve the traveller experienceRoyal Jordanian has signed for the full Amadeus Altéa suite, through the process by which all its critical systems including reservation, inventory and departure control will be moving onto Altéa technology, as well as renewing its distribution agreement with Amadeus.The new agreement supports Royal Jordanian’s efforts to enhance the customers’ experience from the moment they plan to book until they board the aircraft. The innovative solutions give passengers more options, like paying for services at the airport or paying a small fee for locking a fare at a particular price when they book online.Stefan Pichler, President, Royal Jordanian said, “One of the key success pillars in our turnaround plan is the continuous enhancement of passenger services across all touch points. In line with Royal Jordanian’s technology strategy, and in an effort to anticipate the evolution of our traveller experience, we are delighted to expand our core systems portfolio in the passengers’ service with Amadeus.”Passengers will benefit from improved RJ call centre and sales teams who will be better able to offer Royal Jordanian products to customers, allowing for a more flexible offering and personalised packages that suit passenger needs. In addition, through Amadeus’ Altéa technology, Royal Jordanian will have access to the latest NDC capabilities.This move sees Royal Jordanian’s transition away from the current technology environment, in which its processes were handled across multiple vendors and different systems, to a single integrated platform that will allow the airline to better serve passengers and benefit from streamlined internal processes. Furthermore, during disruption times, passengers will be able to rebook themselves onto flights easily and use self-service tools.The full suite of Amadeus IT solutions will also support Royal Jordanian’s strategy aimed at increasing revenues by upselling ancillary services through multiple channels, improving RJ’s competitiveness and business performance and helping it better measure its key performance indicators.last_img read more

How Can the Next President Make Housing Great Again

first_imgHow Can the Next President Make Housing Great Again? Share In the wake of national presidential conventions and debates conducted over controversial topics to better inform voters as these candidates move closer to the election in November, one of the topics hardly touched in these discussions has been the housing market and its reform. Chief Economist for Redfin, Nela Richardson, believes that there are four things these candidates need to keep in mind to “make the housing market great again.”Ignore Mortgage Finance ReformRichardson says that reform of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and other such insurers has been controversial for “longer than millennials have been alive” but despite the agreement that government involvement should be reduced, Richardson says that there is nothing to replace them with as of right now. She suggests that whomever wins the presidency should focus on figuring out a solution for how private capital can be placed back into the mortgage market in order to have viable alternatives to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.Connect Affordability to Mobility“Too often a person’s zip code determines their economic mobility,” says Richardson. She states that almost half of the totality of renters are cost burdened and a quarter of those are classified as being “severely” cost burdened. In her report, Richardson says only one in four people who qualify for federal subsidies actually receives them. She feels that the next president can help better the market by increasing subsidies to households who need them and helping them move to better thriving communities near jobs and functional schools.Increase BuildingRichardson says that increasing building is important to the betterment of the market, but included in this equation must be more transit and infrastructure spending in order to make sure neighborhoods don’t suffer due to isolation or neglect. “Political dysfunction in Congress has prevented the federal government from making the infrastructure investment needed in America’s cities,” says Richardson. “Our families pay the price.”Remembering the “Rust Belt”This final point is shared as something personal to Richardson, who says that some towns facing decay do to foreclosure never came from the housing market boom or bust. Instead, she says they are due to something far more long lasting i.e. job loss and population decline. “It’s an open question whether foreclosure-choked neighborhoods will ever be a good investment for a new generation of homebuyers,” says Richardson. The answer she sees for these communities comes from jobs and reinvestment into local economies before “homeownership can become a great investment again.” in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Newscenter_img Housing Market Redfin 2016-07-25 Seth Welborn July 25, 2016 484 Views last_img read more

such an enterprise ever ask “Why not remake a great movie” Maybe it’s smarter to think of movie remakes as cover songs works that test the power of the original without necessarily dissolving it “One of the ways songs survive is that they mutate” cultural critic Greil Marcus has written “Pop songs are always talked about as ‘the soundtrack to our lives’ when all that means is that pop songs are no

TrailermoviesNew Toy ‘Forky’ Causes Total Chaos in First Toy Story 4 TrailerIvan Reitman’s 1984 Ghostbusters has become a fetishized talisman a picture viewed and reviewed for years by children who are now ostensibly adults Some of those fans don’t believe it deserves the chance to mutate as director Paul Feig learned when via Twitter in October 2014 he announced that he was remaking the film with “hilarious women” Immediately a small but vocal group of disgruntled Ghostbusters purists responded by trying to zap the idea with their proton packs The braying intensified in January 2015 when Feig announced that Melissa McCarthy Kristen Wiig Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones would play the roles originally filled by Bill Murray Dan Aykroyd Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson Some tweets were bracingly direct: “Lazy Hollywood film making ‘let’s make a ghostbusters remake but with women’ Only soccer moms and feminist bimbos will watch that trash” Others may have required creative parsing of grammar but still registered as clear expressions of dude anger: “And by the cast as ‘all female’ & ‘reboot’ also must makes it seem like just a weak gender pandering than actual effort”On July 15 audiences will get to see the new Ghostbusters for themselves but the trail of tantrums its director and stars have had to navigate is a long and winding story on its own There were more trolling tweets when Sony released the first trailer for the movie in March At about the same time Feig’s casting choices met with a different sort of criticism: some observers felt that Jones’ role as a New York City MTA worker was a racial stereotype Jones defended her role asking “Why can’t a regular person be a Ghostbuster” but still found herself fending off attacks on TwitterIn the early days of the outburst Feig refused the bait But in late September he lost it responding to individual examples of rampant Twitter jackassery first with measured language—“God you’re tiresome dude”—and later with the outrage of a reasonable guy driven to madness by idiocy: “You’re an ass Oops did I say that #drunkentweet #notreally #sickofthehaters #enough #freedom #onvacation”Feig has since apologized to members of the “geek community” acknowledging that not all fanboys are raging misogynist goons It’s a measure of the weird world we live in that Feig would have to state the obvious and then apologize anyway But it would be a mistake to think of his retaliatory strike as a lapse in judgment when it really amounts to a mini cultural victory We’re living in pissed-off times Two of our three potential presidential candidates are running on the fumes of American anger Bernie Sanders hasn’t weighed in on Ghostbusters but in a short video posted in January Donald Trump made his confusion explicit: “And now they’re making Ghostbusters with only women What’s going on” One of the charges often leveled at Hillary Clinton is her lack of warmth which makes the rules here doubly confusing: a woman can’t be a Ghostbuster and if she’s lacking certain requisite feminine qualities she can’t be President eitherIt’s a grim landscape That’s why Feig’s fiery defense of both his project and his actors—he also came out in Jones’ defense when the criticism of her Ghostbusters character became nasty and personal—means more than it would in any other year And maybe just maybe it marks the beginning of the end of the tyranny of fanboy culture If we accept that social media represents not the taste of the masses but that of an angry and extremely vocal minority then there’s no need to allow that minority any stake in what movies get made or in how those movies get made Even so studios care deeply about how moviegoers respond on social media to a film Feig’s lashing out may have seemed intemperate to some but it was really the best thing he could have done If part of a filmmaker’s job is to fold in the face of bullying we’re truly lost Movies are made by directors not mobs You could also argue that all Feig did was express a version of the resentment that simmers inside most of us perennially and not just when we’re talking about moviemaking: Why should idiots ever be

by Bethesda until launch with the following explainer: DOOM is comprised of a single-player campaign online multiplayer and SnapMap We believe all three elements are important parts of the complete DOOM experience and are meant to be experienced as part of a complete package As DOOMs SnapMap and multiplayer modes both require access to a server that wont be live prior to launch all review copies will arrive on launch day It’s true a game like Doom has such a noteworthy multiplayer component that barring special press multiplayer sessions (which is how most companies do business these days) all anyone would’ve been able to scribble about beforehand is the solo experience Granted id Software has talked up the single-player element as the centerpiece here–not multiplayer But fair enough

to minimise the conflicts that arise from competition and most of all end the exploitation that is often their fate Our rules regulations and laws must serve the impoverished first" he said He cited the ambitious Sagarmala project launchedin last November in India that focuses on port modernisation connectivity and coastal community development involving more than 400 projects over the next two decades He informed the global summit thatIndia continues to expand its development partnership especially with Small Island Developing States (SIDS) India has committed a sum of 500 million dollars as grant-in-aid and a billion dollars in soft loans for its SIDS partners over the next three years "India also believes that there cannot be sustainable development without sustainable engagement among blue nations The framework for such sustainable engagement needs to be reinforced" he said Written by Charmy Harikrishnan | Published: May 18 2012 3:18 am Related News The cartoon controversy shows the enthusiasm of our political class to create a quiescentquestion-less environment The year was 1967 Vaikkom Muhammad Basheer had published a story in Malayalamof course called Oru Bhagavad Gitayum Kure Mulakalum (A Bhagavad Gita and a Few Breasts) This Muslim was having good funwriting about getting hold of a new edition of the Gita and watching a procession of half-naked nubile Nair girls Dont ask what possible connection could be between the two incidents This is Basheer And he is the master of meanderings and benign mockery In 2012Basheer would have had to look for another title;

imported from China dealers said “We are not defaulting There is a ban on production but not on the sale of these e-rickshaws Hence we are not doing anything wrong by selling the product We only

manufacture cycle-rickshaws but when the government sanctioned the sale of e-rickshaws we all switched trade It soon became a profitable venture There are very few producers of cycle-rickshaws in Delhi now But after we switched trade the government is now attempting to clamp down on the production of e-rickshaws” Importing of parts is seen as a more viable option for many traders due to its cost effectiveness “If the entire production of e-rickshaw is done in India than the price of an e-rickshaw would be around Rs 85000-95000 At present these e-rickshaws are sold starting at Rs 55000

said In addition manufacturers also highlight the constant evolution of technology and parts manufactured in China which are used in these vehicles as a reason to import rather than produce them domestically “Even if we manufacture here the parts we make will be obsolete within a few months as Chinese manufacturers are constantly innovating new techniques of production It makes more sense to

intrigued by what drives success and how some of the greatest world beaters dealt with failure In the current Indian context "Failure" is a dreaded concept; to fail is shameful and painful This attitude makes its way in the mindsets of young sportspersons However occurrence of “failure” in sport as well as in life is fairly common How one approaches success and failure has a huge influence on how you feel your confidence and your motivation Mahatma Gandhi Getty Images On Gandhi Jayanthi it seems like a good idea to to examine the life of Mahatma Gandhi to see if it has any examples that can help us deal more calmly with failure Like all of us Gandhi was also plagued by his insecurities and failures Most people talk speak about Gandhi’s hits but very few talk about his misses It is these misses I want to talk about While the lessons can be applied to many contexts I will focus on their direct application to the world of sports Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi born on October 2 1869 in Porbander India had a mediocre beginning – nothing extraordinary to suggest the immortality he would achieve in the future His childhood and youth were marked by insecurities including a suicide attempt He had limited professional success as a lawyer in India Looking at his life one realizes the truism in Alexander Coward’s statement “Sometimes [early] failures and adversity are better preparations for long term success than effortless progress” There are three key events from Gandhi’s life that I would like to talk about Gandhi was unable to resist peer pressure: During his childhood Gandhi experimented with smoking with his older brother They used to collect the stubs after their uncle had extinguished his cigarette remove the tobacco from them and then roll cigarettes for themselves He also experimented with meat-eating A friend convinced Gandhi that the only reason the English were so tall and powerful and able to rule over India was because they ate meat As Gandhi’s family was strictly vegetarian meat-eating became a clandestine affair which entailed lies deception and even stealing Gandhi started stealing to pay for the meat and he made excuses for not eating at home-which meant lying and deception Gandhi soon realized his mistakes and consumed by self guilt he confessed to his father That parallel I draw is with the great number of athletes who admit to the use of performance-enhancing drugs due to peer pressure This pressure can be exercised directly by friends teammates and coaches Peer pressure can also come in indirect ways When athletes are criticized by peers they might feel like their only hope for improvement is doping Being tempted is human but Gandhi had the courage to realise his mistake and come clean despite any potential consequences If athletes were stand up and voluntarily come clean on doping it would send a powerful message to the next generation Gandhi failed as lawyer Gandhi trained and qualified as a Barrister at the insistence of his parents the law practice he set up in Bombay on his return from England failed At 24 Gandhi moved to South Africa and realized that he was more interested in using his knowledge of the law for social activism on behalf of South Africa’s disadvantaged Indian minorities That is how he came to his true calling – the unification of all Indians of all religions and all castes and their eventual liberation from foreign domination It wasn’t law that was the problem it was how Gandhi used it Passion is the key Another great example is Sachin Tendulkar who early in his career wanted to become a fast bowler However Dennis Lillee the great Australia fast bowler who was the director of the MRF pace academy at the time advised the young Tendulkar to focus on his batting The rest as the cliche goes is history Gandhi’s failed self help experiment at Shantiniketan Gandhi was on a four-day visit to Shantiniketan (Feb 1915) During this visit he conducted a self-help experiment with all the students and teachers He suggested to the teachers that if they and the boys dispensed with the services of paid cooks and cooked their food themselves it would enable the
