View Full Version : Oil Rig Hotel

Here's a novel idea for decommissioned oil platforms...a luxury spa offshore.

I'd recommend they keep the same Cajun chefs that work the GOM today. But I'm not sure if they should keep the big old tool pusher named Boudreaux as the hotel manager.

Yes...you could have the Tripping In and Tripping Out bars. The Mud Pool health spa. The Rotary gambling tables. The Moon Pool restaurant,and the Blow Out Preventer nightclub.

Ahem. Before enthusing about this idea, may I suggest that you read Christopher Brookmyre's "One Fine Day in the Middle of the Night"?

Website synopsis:
The occasion: high school reunion.
The place: an oil rig converted into a tourist resort.
The outcome: carnage.

Great fun. :E

Do I recall a movie where a prison was on an old oil rig?:confused:

Face off maybe...
