Why So Serious!?

Of all his clever jokes, THE JOKER’s most famous words are still “Ha Ha!” You’ll find them carved into the side of his very own ocean liner, an all-green ship that will swing you to new heights. We’re not sure why anyone would trust THE JOKER when booking a cruise. You know he’s got some secret plan to make this a vacation you’ll never forget.

Don’t be fooled by the calm skies. Where’s that laughter coming from? Once you take your seat on this jokester’s boat, you’ll set sail on waves of excitement.

As the ship starts to rock swiftly up and back to dizzying heights, it feels like the whole boat is getting tossed around on the surf. You’ll swing higher and higher until the vessel is practically vertical. As the ship arcs 180 degrees into the sky, you’ll know the Joker’s tossed you into some serious waves. At a full 66 feet high, you can check out the view of the Studio Backlot, THE JOKER’s home away from home.

But then hold onto your belly laughs because you’re about to experience sheer weightlessness. You’ll hang in the air for a moment, before slamming back down and swinging up the next wave with stomach-tightening momentum — in reverse! You’ll feel the wind race by as you soar even higher. Remember, THE JOKER wants you to laugh, not scream!

This unstoppable velocity would make even the funniest comedian skip the punchline.
