Theme Park Apprentice Final: Create a new theme park
It's time for the final of our first Theme Park Apprentice game. Our two finalists have been challenged to design a new theme park
Take a look at the discussion, then help us choose the winner.
Congratulations to our finalists, and thanks to everyone who played! A big thank you, as well, to Tim W for organizing the game.
Anthony: your ideas were cool, but I had to go with Nick's park. I loved his ride ideas and his lands sounded cool (Star Wars, Avatar, etc.). Sorry dude, although the voting is still going. Good luck to both of you! :)
Both concepts were strong. In the end, I went with Anthony as his park seems more fitting overall for Disney, but I'd buy a 2 day pass for Nick's as well :). I think the negative criticisms come from our own ideas of how we, individually, would strengthen each park. Not to dismiss your concepts. I'm sure most of you do this with every theme park you visit- its fun to second guess or one up the pros. Congrats to both of you!!!!
Since the comments for the final thread have been maxed out, I have posted another thread. In it, i mentioned Water Park Apprentice, the 2nd version of theme Park Apprentice.
I can't find the thread.
^Hey Tim, if you would like, I could run the competition as I have A LOT of time on my hands. :D
I just submitted it. Hasn't been posted yet Andy.
I'm really excited. Sorry for being so impatient.
I think Anthony's ideas were very unique and different. The attractions sounded very appealing to everyone and sorry but I think music had a much bigger role in the way of Disney than heroes did. Walt put a lot of effort into Fantasia and I think
First off I'd like to say I really liked both of your ideas but, I had to go with Anthony's. I really liked Nick's idea to include Hercules attractions which I have been wanting Disney to do for a long time. Sorry Nick but, I found Anthony's ideas
I really liked the yellow submarine idea, that just sounds awesome! Also I really liked Nick's incredibles omnidroid idea, that sounds awesome too.
Brilliant! Both of you gentlemen should be beaming with pride at your imaginative creations.
Nick, just wondering, but have you heard of the neverlandfiles website? The omnidroid idea is on their website.
PLAGARISM! Just kidding, it was probably just coincidence.
Of course it's on their website. Any theme park geek who has seen The Incredibles instantly thought that scene would make an excellent attraction.
Huh, that's funny. I have never heard of the site, though like Joshua said, it was like they made the Omnidroid to be made into a future theme park attraction! :)
I went with Anthony because the idea seems like something that Walt might have com up with. Also, I prefer the way he describes his ideas. He makes them sound unique, rather than comparing them to pre-existing attractions.
Interesting how close they sound Nick! What a coincidence. And it looks like we may have our winner...
The final voting was kept anonymous, but we were all here for fun and what we could learn.
I voted for Anthony. A music-themed park would be great at WDW. I liked a lot of Nick's ideas, but anything that involves "Avatar" I cannot vote for.
Eh, it looks like Nick might be the winner, but it seemed very close which I like. It does seem that more or the ocmments are for me vs Nick. I didn't count them so do not quote me on that! Still, I have a great time and learned of new attraction ideas if Disney or Universal ever asks for my opinion!
Hey Tim, how much longer should it be? Again. sorry for being impatient. By the way, you said it (Water Park Apprentice) will be smaller than TPA (Theme Park Apprentice). Does that mean it will have less than 8 challenges or what?
Yes, it will be shorter. There will be about 6 Challenges compared to the 8. And two contestants will be eliminated each round instead of 1
Is it up yet? 'Cause I am ready to go!
Again, it will not be up till June 21st at the earliest.
Oops....sorry. Blonde moment. :( Anyway, Nick, if you read this, I would like to know if I could use your "Ride with the Incredibles" idea in my theme park that I'm designing (See Challenge 8). I felt that I should get permission from you first though....
