Special Challenge: Redemption
Everyone makes mistakes, and sometimes those mistakes can be quite costly. However, just because someone makes a mistake does not mean they are a failure. It is more important that an individual can learn from their mistakes and improve on it than that everything is perfect the first time. For this challenge, you must do exactly that...learn from past mistakes.
For this challenge, you are to repeat the challenge in which you were eliminated and submit an improvement of your original proposal. You must stick within the requirements of the original challenge and should pay attention to feedback presented by judges when improving your design. While you must stick with the same basic concept, you are free to make any other adjustments you like. For clarification:
-realdonaldduck, you were eliminated for Yosemite Valley Fire Patrol. If you wish to compete for redemption, you must submit some type of interactive dark ride themed to fire fighting in Yosemite Valley.
-Andrew_G, you were eliminated for Astro Boy's Flyers. If you wish to compete for redemption, you must submit any type of spinner flat ride themed to Astro Boy.
-Christopher Sturniolo, you were eliminated for Ink and Plate Club. If you wish to compete for redemption, you must submit a nightclub style dining experience themed to Disney animation.
-Keith Schneider, you were eliminated for Hurricane. If you wish to compete for redemption, you must submit a storm themed wooden coaster.
How will this challenge be judged? Since everyone will be doing a different type of attraction, we will compare your design with both your original design and the other submissions in the original challenge by re-ranking with your new design included. Whoever has shown the most improvement from their original pitch will be readmitted to Theme Park Apprentice 8. To be fair, we will scale scores based on the number of entries in the original challenge (ex: improving 3 positions with 5 entries will be scored higher than improving 4 positions with 8 entries).
What if I am still in the competition? If you have not been eliminated, you have this week off to plan for future challenges and/or catch up on real life activity. You are welcome to submit an entry for a critique if desired, but it is not required and will not get you any bonus points. If you do submit an entry, you may select any attraction previously presented and your new proposal will replace your original proposal in your final park.
For this challenge, your proposal should follow the same guidelines as the original challenge. Additionally, while you may reuse sections of your original proposal it should be obvious that you’ve put significant work into it. If the proposal appears to be the original with only minor edits you will be disqualified. To refer back to the original challenge, use these links:
If you have been eliminated and want a second shot at winning the competition, your proposal must be submitted by Saturday, July 9th at midnight. Not participating in this challenge will not affect your eligibility for future seasons of Theme Park Apprentice, but this will be your one and only shot at returning to the current season of the competition.
