Students are being invited to compete in the 2018 Theme Park Design Competition, announced by the Cornell Theme Park Entertainment Group with additional support from Adirondack Studios, PGAV Destinations, Raven Sun Creative, and Ripley Entertainment.
The 2018 contest will be the event’s fourth iteration, and $6,000 in cash prizes is up for grabs for the winning team and runners-up.
This year’s prompt challenges students to design an immersive experience using state of the art water ride technologies. Teams will take their vision from “blue-sky” concept to a budgeted and rendered pitch, requiring a breadth of skills to create a successful proposal given the technical and financial constraints of the prompt.
A panel of industry experts will assess submissions for creativity, feasibility, and attention to detail, with the results of the competition will be announced in mid-May.
