If you owned your own theme park

Recommended Posts

I'd have to go with an ABC Tilt Tower, A.R.M Super Shot, Zierer Suspended Magic Carpet, Chance Morgan Revolution 32, Chance Morgan Merry Go Round, Dartron Star Trooper, Huss Booster, Intamin Bounty, Huss Rodeo and to cap everything off, a (either spinning or not, im undecided) Wild Mouse and Powered rollercoaster

I love how quick this thread went from "be realistic" (ala my park on p1) to "dream park" (ala everything here )


Anyways, heres MY dream park...



-Cyclops clone, possibly with a tunnel covering that last insane dive.

-Intamin Accelorator, ala Storm Runner but with a longer layout, including some spots of airtime.

-A set of dueling B&M inverts. Not nesccisarily Dueling Dragons, but it will incorperate those loops.

-King Cobra (if KI won't put it back, I'll use it)

-mirrored Wild Mice, so that they duel during the switchbacks.

-B&M hyper, ala Raging Bull without those trims.

-Themed terrain woodie





-S&S tower complex

-Giant top spin, themed



Water rides:

-Mack Watercoaster. Layout consists of several twisting hill, followed by a downward figure-8 leading to a pop of airtime into the splashdown.

-Splashboat with basic double-down layout.

-Adventure river that interacts with the terrain coaster.

TPR, if you owned a successful theme park, what would you do with it? What roller coaster companies would you consult? What types of coasters would you include? What kinds of theming? Be specific!


I have always thought it would be really cool to have a 20th century themed park, with a well-themed section for each decade. At some point in the 30s or 40s section, I would get a B&M dueling inverted coaster (like Dueling Dragons) but theme it like a dogfight.


What would you do?

Heavily themed dark coaster


Invert or floorless with 5+ inversions (for inversion whores!)

Kiddie coaster with airtime! (Miler???)

Gravitron (or Starship 2000/3000)


Good pirate ship ("good" as in massive airtime!)

Oscillating Chance Yo-Yo

Heavily themed log flume with intense splashdown

Crazy inverting ride (Inverter maybe? Or something better.)

This is an easy one:

1. Bonfante Gardens atmosphere.

2. Kickass GCI coaster.

3 Epcotesque food experiences.

4. 1 day of ERT fro TPR members.

5.Free unlimited Coke Products, and Free Beer for those over 21.


C'mon Powerball!

Free beer sounds a bit risky, I'd hate to see what kind of trouble/accidents could result from all the drunk folks....



I'd always imagined park starting out with:

- Out and back woodie along one part of the park's perimeter.

- Used looping Schwarzkopf - imagine Scoprion at BGA scale of ride.

- Ferris Wheel, shoot em up dark ride, antique cars, log flume, an inverting flat like a KMG Freak Out, small drop tower.

If I owned a theme park I think it would be cool to have it be small but packed with awesome compact rides (GCI, mega-lite, el loco, ball coaster, euro fighter, etc.) I would also make sure the park had a great drop tower, fun flats, dark rides, and some unique water rides. Then there would be an Intamin giga circling the entire park and parking lot.

I'd tie in local events into admission, to use as a promotion, something like, the day after a Laker game, if the Lakers win and hold their opponet under 100 points, admission for that day would be the player of the game's jersey number (if L Odom is player of the game, admission is 7 dollars, K Bryant, 24 dollars, and so on) Or if the Dodgers win the next day their runs scored would be the times you could revisit with a one day admission.

If I was to build a small park (not my dream park) it would be just like Lake Compounce in Bristol, CT. To me this park is the definition of a great small park. It has rides for the whole family, and is set nicely into the mountain. The only thing I would probably add is a medium intensity steel coaster. That would be my ideal small park.
