Here's a thought exercise for you: If you were assigned to create the line-up for an amusement park, using nothing but existing, "off the shelf" amusement rides, what would you choose to include in the park?
Let's try to keep the size of the park reasonable here, so we'll say that it should include between 16-20 attractions for its "opening day" line-up, and that it should offer more family rides than thrill rides, so no all-coaster line-ups. We're trying to create a line-up that includes high-quality attractions that will appeal to as broad an audience as possible, to increase the chances that whoever develops this park will be able to make enough money to keep it going.
Using that as our criteria, here's what I would nominate for inclusion in our "off the shelf" amusement park:
I'd also include a carousel and a dry/wet playgrounds among the family rides, but I don't have a preferred manufacturer or model for those, so suggestions there are welcomed!
What do you think? What manufacturers and models would you like to see in your park? Let's try to work toward some consensus here, to help the people who actually make these decisions hear what we, as fans, most would like to see added to their (very real) theme and amusement parks!Tweet
