Have you ever been on a ride and thought to yourself, “I could design something better than this”?
If so, you are in the right place. Theme Park Apprentice is a competition where you get to design the attractions.
This is a rare opportunity. I get to announce not one, not two, but three Theme Park Apprentice Tournaments.
1. The Tournament of Champions II (start date TBD)
2. The Tournament of Champions II Play-in Tournament where one person will get qualified for the Tournament of Champions II.
3. A “for fun” tournament, for everyone who wants to play but doesn’t have the credentials for the other tournaments, and as a wind up for the regular yearly tournament to be held this summer.
The play-in tournament and the for-fun tournament are as of the posting of this announcement open for people to sign up. Reply in the message threads below that you are in if you would like to play.
These tournaments will run side-by-side at the same time on the chat boards of Theme Park Insider. There will be separate places to put your entry depending on which tournament you are in. The only downside for an absolute beginner is that the challenges will be a little harder than the typical challenges of a summer session.
The tournaments are scheduled to start on February 19th with the first challenge due on February 25th.
For this shortened version of the tournament, there will be no eliminations. Everyone will post the first three weeks, and then three finalists will compete in the final round. The final round will be given an extra week since it usually involves building an entire park. Our goal is to post the challenges 2 weeks in advance of the due date, so people can work ahead if they need to.
Those are the main pieces right there. I’m sure this will be followed up by a lengthy post listing all of the rules, along with some do’s and don’ts.
Once again, if you would like to play, add your name below and we will consider that your entry into the tournament. If you’re not sure which tournament you are going in for, we will sort that out for you.
If you are interested in helping, we currently have only one judge for the “for fun” tournament, which is fine, because it is just for fun, but we could always use more help.
Let’s try to keep this thread for questions regarding registration and discussions on the rules. If you have any questions outside of that, please post it in the TPA Chat Thread. We’ll have some salty old TPA pirates keeping an eye on things and will usually be more than happy to answer your questions over there.
Good luck to everyone!!
