LIP-WRAPPED BEER

Grupo Cerveza Alhambra is launching its new beer can design that features a peel-back foil “lip wrapper.” Though they’re not in the U.S. yet, they have been seen mainly in Granada, Spain, where Alhambra beer is brewed. This new lip wrapper will keep the can lip clean so that you can not only enjoy good alcohol, but also good health.

REALITY ROLLERCOASTER

Paramount’s Great America in Santa Clara, Calif., will be the first theme park to include a reality rollercoaster. The ride is based on the hit CBS series Survivor and features a journey surrounded by tribal music, jungle drums, fiery 40-foot-tall torches, and tropical landscaping. Brave ride-seekers can even participate In an immunity challenge. Now everyone can enjoy being in a Survivor tribe without being left on an island and being forced to eat bugs.
