Welcome, competitors. As a reminder, there will be NO eliminations from Challenge 1, so even while we’re still fine-tuning our critiques, you’re welcome to start thinking on Challenge 2. Which is…
REPLACE A LOUSY ROLLER COASTER
Even the greatest theme park has room for improvement. Often there’s that one lousy roller coaster which just isn’t up to par. Maybe it’s a Vekoma Boomerang, or a crumbling woodie, or Mind Eraser, or something else.
For this week’s “Theme Park Apprentice: Extreme Park Makeover” challenge, you are to select a low-quality roller coaster from any park, and either replace it or restore it. Using the same footprint, remove a poor experience and create one that will be a park highlight. And since this is Theme Park Apprentice, theme the new ride appropriately for your park. Show creativity. If you’re topping a wooden coaster, don’t simply re-track it. Think of Magic Mountain’s Twisted Colossus as the bare minimum. For a total replacement, make us forget the older ride ever existed, like Kings Island’s Banshee did to Son of Beast.
If you are unsure of a particular roller coaster, of if you even need a coaster recommendation, the judges are always here to help.
All proposals are due on Saturday, July 22nd, at midnight site time. Late proposals without an acceptable excuse will see their point totals reduced.
Judges will be scoring by the following criteria:
Overall proposal quality: 40%
Reality check: 20%
Met challenge: 25%
