Bonus Challenge: A Career-Ending Move
Thank you to everyone who has participated in this season of Theme Park Apprentice. While the competition has ended, we have an "unofficial" bonus challenge for anyone who is interested. There is no restrictions on who may take part in this challenge...any registered member of Theme Park Insider is welcome to submit an entry.
After years of successful attraction design, you are currently working on your dream project, an attraction that could be the greatest ever built. However, your latest project has been leaked and a rival theme park has just announced a new attraction. While not obvious to the general public, you notice that the design is very similar to your recently leaked project. Angry that your dream has been crushed, you decide to sabotage the competition by pitching them a “special” design that you claim is even better than the leaked version. However, your attraction is truly the exact opposite...the worst attraction ever created. In order to be convincing, your attraction should:
You can take a few creative liberties, but if your attraction couldn’t exist in reality it isn’t going to be very persuasive.
The goal is to create an attraction so awful that guests have no desire to re-ride, not create an attraction that guests would be physically unable to re-ride.
Don’t just take an existing attraction and remove anything that makes it fun, create a new attraction based on the same concept that just fails on every level.
For this challenge, your proposal should be 3-5 pages (not including pictures) and should include:
*The name, theme, and location (if applicable) of your attraction
*The type of attraction and any relevant technical details
*A complete run-through of your attraction, from the entrance to the exit
*Anything else you feel is necessary to portray the terrible nature of your attraction
You may utilize any type of attraction (ride, show, or walkthrough) for this proposal. While dark rides are likely the most obvious choice, you are not required to use one.
You may specify a park you are designing your attraction for or you may just create a general attraction not geared toward any specific park.
You are welcome to create a knock-off from any existing attraction, but you may not create a direct clone.
Technically, there is no deadline for this challenge. However, if you would like your proposal to be judged, please submit it by Saturday, September 26th.
