Final – I Think I Mythed Something
Pick a mythological God.
Name your park _____land, just like Disneyland. (Or if that sounds awkward, something similar but in the same vein.)
Using the name of your mythological God as an overall theme, you will need to create at least four themed lands. Each land will have at least three attractions, at least one restaurant, at least one shop, and a weenie each. Your park will require at least a parade and/or night time show. Feel free to do a separate port of entry/main street to work guests into the theme of the rest of the park, but it will not count as one of your lands.
For the restaurants and shops, 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.
You are only allowed to use characterizations that are in the public domain. Be careful, you don’t want your brand new park getting sued into the stone age by a vindictive mouse who thought you swiped some of his ideas. While we are allowing you to use the same Gods that appear in movies, be very careful about stepping on the toes of someone’s copyright.
FOR FUN RULES: You can use any mythological God, mythological creature, mythological person, or mythological place to use as the main idea of your park. The rest of the rules all apply.
NOTE TO ALL: Let's stay away from Christian deities and places. The Christian theme park has been used extensively...and the crux of this is to attempt to move people outside of their routine list of characters to create something original and new. Not to mention that it is wise not to offend anyone by claiming that their beliefs are myths. So let's try to stay away from major currently practiced religions. We are not trying to make a religious park, we are trying to use intricate stories of ancient religions to build an immersive themed park.
Just for some extra reading which may help you decide what to use, try this link:
Under the heading "Historical polytheism" there are some useful links that may help you get a toehold on this. Don't consider that a complete list, though, as it doesn't mention Native American deities.
Since this is going to take longer than usual to create an entire park, you will be given two weeks to complete your park. Therefore the due date is March 25. But feel free to post earlier if you are done.Tweet
