Theme Park Ride Design Prompt

You’ve been chosen to design the newest ride at a famous theme park. You’re the architect of thrills and excitement!

1. Rider’s Experience: Describe the journey riders will take. Will it be a heart-racing roller coaster, a mysterious underwater voyage, or a journey through the stars? Think about the sensations you want them to feel. Is it the rush of wind, the surprise of drops, or the awe of visual effects?

2. Theme: Every great ride tells a story. What’s yours? Are you battling dragons, racing through a futuristic city, or exploring a hidden jungle? Choose a theme and explain how the design and decorations of the ride will bring this story to life.

3. Safety: Safety is as important as fun. Please explain how your ride will keep everyone secure while they’re having the time of their lives. Consider the restraints, the materials used for the ride, and the instructions given before the ride starts.

4. Fun Factor: What makes your ride a must-try experience? Is it the speed, the heights, the loops, or the interactive elements? Describe the unique features that will have people lining up again and again.

Draw a detailed picture of your ride and write a description that includes all these elements. Give your ride a catchy name and make us feel like we’re there, experiencing the thrill ourselves!
