If you owned your own theme park

Postby martinb » Mon Mar 20, 2006 2:07 pm

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?

I love donkeys more than me.

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. :omg:

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I'd get a Schwarkopz looper (since I could probably get one dirt cheap), a B&M Invert, a family coaster, a log flume and some flats: whip, swings, pirate ship.

That sounds like Wild Adventures! :lmao:


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.....

Mine would have trees and no massive pads of concrete.

All I want is a chainlift!

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!
