Since Jeff is busy all weekend, Jim and I have agreed to post this week's challenge (which Jeff had already completed) to give our competitors more time with it.
Week 3 – Please Don’t Make Me Do This
Pick the absolute worst IP you can think of (that has never been used for a theme park attraction) and build the best land ever for it.
30% of your score will be how absolutely awful the IP you chose is. (10% of your score in the For Fun competition.) If you choose something off the beaten path, you may need to give us some background, because the judges sure aren’t going to take the time to research it themselves.
With your bad IP, choose the best park to place it in, and build a land consisting of: three attractions, a restaurant, gift shop (yes, I said a gift shop for your awful IP…you better make it so good that people will be aching to buy your awful IP’s swag), a “weenie” (something to draw the eye and the visitors back to this section of the park), and a mini parade with at least 5 floats.
For the restaurant and shop, you will need to show what you are selling in general terms and 4-5 specific examples. The land and attractions will need full descriptions along with the connecting tissue that ties everything together.
Remember, terrible IP and awesome land – don’t do terrible IP and ironically terrible land. Barney, for an example that you can’t take because it is currently being used, wouldn’t work as a ride where you see the dinosaur get ripped into tiny pieces. It would also not work as Barney introducing an attraction that is not actually featuring him. The whole land would be about showing how awesomely cool Barney is to the point that you would have a large attendance spike once people realized the awesomeness of what you built. In fact, people would walk into the park saying that there was no way that they would ever be caught dead on a Barney attraction, hear how completely awesome it is while waiting in other lines, experience the awesomeness, and leave the park with a Barney t-shirt and plans to come back to ride the Barney attraction again.
That is what you are trying to do here.
FOR FUN RULES: You don't need to create a parade (though you still can).Tweet
