I can’t say I’m particularly enthused about this idea but the latest talk about the dilapidated Big Brother house on the Gold Coast is that it will become a paintball and laser tag venue.
News.com.au reports Australian Robert Kusch, his silent partner, and Chicago-based Tony Odinson, expect to make a deal soon with owners Queensland Investment Corporation for an “action-based venue for role-playing sports” such as laser tag, C-tag, aero tag, and paintball.
I hate to think what sort of money it would require to turn it into a working tourist site. I find it hard to believe it is commercially viable. But I guess laser tag is a better game to stage than turkey-slapping.
Footage of the house in disrepair went viral last month when it was uploaded to YouTube, now at over 1.15m views.
QIC said it was “currently considering a range of future options” for the site.
