Week 1 – Small Parks Need Love, Too
Pick a park that is NOT Six Flags, Cedar Fair, Disney, Universal, SeaWorld, Busch, Herschends, Schlitterbaun, Hershey, Knoebels, Holiday World, Europa Park, or any other park that I have missed comparable to these. Examples would include, but are certainly not limited to, Magic Springs, Gilroy Gardens, Morgan’s Wonderland, Elitch Gardens, Glenwood Springs Adventure Park, Cliff’s Amusement Park….basically a small niche and/or small regional park….take your pick, there are a lot of them. If in doubt about park eligibility, text a judge and we will make the call.
Once you have chosen your small niche/regional park, your task is, with one attraction, build something so awesome and/or unique that it will put that park firmly on the amusement park map. The attraction must fit in with the rest of the park as well as actually fit in the footprint of the park (no berm busters or sky busters). Since most of these parks have a small footprint, giving us some background on the park, what you are taking out to make room for the new attraction, and why the new attraction will work better with the park, would probably be a really good idea. Keep your ideas within the realities of the park, for example: all attractions at Morgan’s Wonderland will be not only handicapped accessible, but handicapped enjoyable; while Glenwood Springs Adventure Park will need to be very creative about placement since they have a very tenuous footprint clinging to the side of a mountain.
FOR FUN RULES: You get to pick any park you want. But keep in mind that the criteria of building something awesome might be more difficult if there is more awesomeness at your park to compete against.
Your proposal is due on Feb. 25th by Midnight TPI time.
