If you owned your own theme park

Recommended Posts

Don't go for the obvious, Millenium Force, Duelling Dragons etc, be realistic!


I drive lots and everytime I see an empty field I always imagine what I could build on it, I would love to own a little park


Be serious, you own a litle park, what would it be like, at the moment its just land but you have to add all the rides etc.


My big coasters woud have to be a Boomerang & an SLC Standard, mainly because they are very cheap, large thrilling rides(you have to remember you own a little park, which mainly are aimed at family days out, so an SLC & Boomerang are big rides for a family park). Other rides would be an S&S Space Shot, a standard compact Log Flume, Fabbri Booster, Go-Karts, Dodgems, Pirate Ship!


My park isn't yet open, there are plenty more rides to be bought, mainly kiddie's! But plans are starting to take place for a Brand New coaster in the 2008 season, more news on this when I make it up!


The park is called "Spring Island Adventure Park" and is due to open in time for the summer of 2006! Can't wait!


How about yours?

My park would cost 1 billion dollars to make. And it would be located in florida and take many years for me to get my money back, but it'd be so freaking worth it. It'd have an Intamin Hyper, dueling Vekoma Motorbikes, Intamin Aqua Trax, B&M Floorless, B&M invert, and maybe a B&M flyer. And a gerstlaur spinny ride.(I think the set up is more interactive with your party then the Mohne Soyer or w/e is) And if I can't think of what I should build next, then an Intamin Rocket Looper or something.


The 1 billion dollars would come from building like 3 - 5 major coasters all at once and then all the other attractions, and all the heavy theming. With land, it'd probably be 2 billion, or more.

That sounds like Wild Adventures!



My park would be heavily themed with many trees and flowers. I would have a wooden twister from from GCI, an Itamin Aqua Trax, and a B&M sit down looper. I would also have many thrill and kidie rides with a few more smaller coasters. My park would coast $2 billion to make, because it is super big and majorly themed. Yeah.....

To me Holiday World is a perfect example of what I would want to have....... a nice park that majority of people do not complain about (everybody is happy and having a good time)..friendly staff and great rides and slides. the only thing they do not have is a big steel coaster but...from a money standpoint...would you rather have an SLC or Voyage?

Realisticly speaking, mine would be around myhouse. In the side yard by the patio, I could probabbly fit a chaos and another flat ride...In the backyard strip would go Project wildcat, but I think you know about that already. Inside would be an Arcade (I already have the arcade ddr pads etc), and maybe bumper cars in the storaage room (like we really ever use it...) Ofcoures I'd want to buy out some of the surrounding houses for other coasters, but lets not get in over our heads...

I'd start with a Pinfari 42, maybe a Hurricane, a KMG Fireball or Huss Frisbee, a classic (restored) carousel, maybe a twin flip and a looping starship plus a log flume and a few kiddie rides. Then when I could afford it, a launching coaster.


I LOVE this little looper!

In my park there will be lot's of interaction between the rides:


There would be 4 Medium size "Wooden" coasters, all interlocking with each other, have many tunnels, fly-bys and near misses, a Big Water Park and some of these flumes will be interlocking with the coasters, you could be on the "lazy river" and have a Woodie train zoom past you within a couple of feet away.


The Steel coasters will not be any higher than 200ft as there is no need to go high than this, they would be built with many hills and banked curves, twister / out n back style.


The best flat rides ever made like the "Zipper"/ "Swatter" and "Top Scan", 6 different settings for each one so you can choose how butal you want the program to be.


A couple of "River Rapid" rides where there is a "Quad down" into a tunnel, your get soaked no matter where you sit.


Lot's of Go-Kart tracks with tunnels,banked curners, hills and downward/upward helix's

Mine would be by a large lake and mountains.


Schwartzkopf Looping Star- (SFAW's Viper) Located on the lake

Arrow Suspended- top speed around 60mph, runs three trains thanks to double brake-run at the end (like Cedar Point's Corkscrew). Lots of swinging over water and around trees.

B&M Floorless- eight inversions, including a dive loop coming off of the mcbr (instead of a drop). Maybe some cool near misses with rocks or branches.

Intamin Hyper- basically out & back but with a really cool terrain turnaround in the woods. Also, a helix over water with a ton of mist at the end.

GCI Woodie-Very Twisted, 2 tunnels, Millenium Flyers. Runs through the woods with some terrain action on the mountains.

Premier Launched Shuttle-Similar to Robin, but with a Batwing instead of a Cobra Roll. Also, most of the ride would be inside a mountain.

My park would be a recreation of every cool fair out there into one mega park. And all the rides would be blasting Big Balls through out the park. And of course there would be like 10 awsome kiddy coasters. There would also be a stall which would be "deep fry a la cart". You could have them deep fry any food you wanted such as pizza, hamburgers, and of course cheese cake!

Mine would have a recreation of the Crystal Beach Cyclone and some carnival rides. (kind of like Knobels) Then if I got more money I would get a 200 foot S&S tower and Mack E-motion coaster.

I've actually put some fairly serious thought into a new park for the Toronto area. It is a HUGE market that is growing fast and can easily sustain another theme park. My idea is for something that is a mixture of Mt. Olympus and Holiday World. Go-Karts, wooden coasters, family rides, and an easy slow paced atmosphere with a stellar water park to boot.


It would be located beside a major highway and would easily connect to public transportation (including the highspeed rail system I am also planning for Southern Ontario...that's a different story though). It would be on the edge of Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto. The Greater Toronto Area has a population of 5.3 million, with other large nearby cities within a reasonable drive (1-2 hours, or quicker by highspeed rail). The location I have in mind is easily accesible from 3 major highways (neighbouring one) and would have easy access from multiple streets to prevent traffic congestion.


Now, my plans for this are fairly lofty and I still have alot of work to do but eventually I would like to take this idea to the City of Toronto and potential investors and see if I can get financial backing for this down the road. Within the next year I want to come up with a basic business plan, I'm hoping to be able to do it for a project in school, but if that doesn't work out than I want to have something ready before the TPR MidWest trip so that I can maybe talk to the owners or managers of Holiday World and Mt. Olympus.


Here are some of the things I would want to have for the opening year:


Name: Oakwood Valley (name is work in progress)

Type of Park: Traditional/Kart'n'Coaster



Wooden Twister similar to Thunderhead

Family Steel Coaster (Vekoma Roller Skater or similar)

Steel Coaster (Floorless or similar. Must be looping to attract teens)


Go Karts:

1 large high speed circuit

1 Family Circuit

1 Junior Circuit


Water Park:

Wave pool

Lazy River

Water Coaster

Various slides

Kiddie Section


Flat Rides:

S&S Triple Tower with park name on top to attract attention from highway

3-4 other flat rides of thrilling nature (not yet determined)


Kiddie Section:

Would house the junior coaster, junior circuit, and more family/kiddie rides


Atleast 1 entertainment show would be included. Food and dining establishments not yet determined. Midway games would also make an appearance.


In the future the park would have additional coasters, go kart tracks, water park updates (wave rider) and more attractions for family members to do all at once.

The San Diego area is another place in need of a real theme park, as Legoland and Sea World California aren't much to offer. Unfortunately, land in the county is very expensive, so the park would have to be quite a ways off in the east, and still probably pretty small. Therefore, the coaster selection would have to be compact.


While I've never been to a park with a Premier Rides LIM coaster, I think they look really cool and twisted, and are probably remarkably thrilling due to the high speed and number of headchoppers. They're also much smaller than rides with lift hills, so this would definitely be a main attraction.


Also, east San Diego county gets ridiculously hot in the summer (100 degrees Fahrenheit and high humidity is a constant from July to September), so a high capacity water ride would be an absolute necessity. Rapids rides can get you quite wet and seat up to 12 people per raft, so one of these (or maybe a racing pair) would be great.



Finally, there would have to be at least one ride with a unique design, so I propose building an updated version of the Japanese thriller Moonsault Scramble. Since that coaster pulled almost 7 G's it was removed, but the Boomerang-variant is a seldom-seen design as most parks stick with the original. Bring those G's on!


I'm sure most of us on this site have played RollerCoaster Tycoon, and I feel that that is the best program available for showing your ideas.
