TOC2 – Week 4 – From the Ashes
“When the situation was manageable it was neglected, and now that it is thoroughly out of hand we apply too late the remedies which then might have effected a cure. There is nothing new in the story. It is as old as the sibylline books. It falls into that long, dismal catalogue of the fruitlessness of experience and the confirmed unteachability of mankind. Want of foresight, unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency comes, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong–these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history.”
Your job this week is to take a failed park and make it great again. But this time it will be done right. Using the exact footprint of any former theme or amusement park, you will build up a brand new park. But we don’t want a recreation – as most recreations would also fail miserably after a while. What we want is a completely new park. We will allow for a small tribute section in the park, but it will need to be small and is completely optional. Since the footprint is the main thing to go by, feel free to chuck the name out with the bathwater as well and completely rebrand it. The idea is that the old park was closed, the buildings leveled and the site abandoned, but a new investor wants to build a new park, a successful park, on the site. Just for the sake of this one challenge, you can still use a park even if the land has already been repurposed. As an example: they have built houses on the land of your former park, but we will act as if such an atrocity never happened…that the land is as clean for you as the day after the bulldozers came through and leveled everything. You may not reuse any buildings or facilities. The only thing you are allowed to reuse is the IP that was in use at that park on the last day the park was open, but no other IP is allowed.
15% of your score will be based on how well this park will be able to grow a fanbase.
