Challenge 4: Thrill Ride
For some visitors, a theme park is all about adrenaline. Thrill seekers crave the white knuckle, high intensity attractions that provide a natural high without any risk of compromising safety. Now, it is time for you to create an attraction that caters to this crowd.
For this challenge, you must create a high intensity thrill ride. What qualifies as a thrill ride? Think about it like this: Does the theming enhance the attraction, or does it make the attraction? In order words, would the ride still be exciting without the immersive environment? Roller coasters, motion based dark rides, and flume rides that feature significant drops (such as Splash Mountain) all count as thrill rides. Motion simulators are also acceptable provided they offer significant motion (such as Star Tours), but other flat rides are not acceptable for this challenge. As always, your attraction must fit into the theme of your park.
For this challenge, your proposal should be 3-5 pages and should include:
-The name of your ride and its location in your park
-An overview of the attraction...think of this as what you’d find on the park’s website
-Technical specifications for your attraction, including ride type, manufacturer (if applicable), and important figures related to the thrill aspect (for a roller coaster, this would be length, height, drop, speed, inversions, etc.)
-A detailed look at your attraction, beginning at the entrance and ending at the exit
-Anything else you feel is necessary to complete your proposal
All proposals must be submitted by Saturday, July 2nd at midnight.Tweet
