Is Wakanda Really In Wisconsin?

Fans of Marvel’s newest movie Black Panther might dream of visiting the African nation of Wakanda, but unfortunately, it isn’t real.
Those who search for it are instead being redirected to a waterpark in Wisconsin! Wakanda Park in Menomonie, Wisconsin, has seen a significant increase in searches, along with many other real-world destinations with similar sounding names, such as Wauconda, Illinois, Wakaya, Fiji, and Wakkanai, in Japan.
Pop culture often inspires travel choices, with thousands of tourists visiting Croatia and Iceland because of Game of Thrones, and just as many going to New Zealand, inspired by The Lord of the Rings. Similarly, travel companies are hoping that Wakanda will spark interest in travel to Africa.
