Amusement Parks design
Designing an amusement park is complicated and long, but very entertaining process, which requires a lot of creativity and big imagination. The design project of this kind of parks depends on the size of the place, the capital and of course the taste of the clients. Another important aspect to consider is the eventual theme of the park if we decide to use one – there is large variety of type to choose from.
Amusement parks are spaces, provided with many entertainment attractions, rides, different types of events, stores, restaurants and many other fun resources. Theme parks, a specific type of amusement park, are usually much more intricately themed to a certain subject or group of subjects than normal amusement parks.
Amusement parks evolved from European fairs and pleasure gardens, which were created for people's recreation. World's fairs and expositions were another influence on the development of the amusement park industry. Amusement parks have a fixed location, as opposed to travelling funfairs and carnivals.
Amusement parks could include also other types or spaces inside like water parks. An example of that is the new Warner Madrid water park 2014 where we, David Theming Works team, had the pleasure to work decorating some of its areas.
The main attraction of any amusement park is their rides. Mechanized thrill machines are a defining feature of amusement parks. Early rides include the carousel, which originally developed from cavalry training methods first used in the middle Ages. By the 19th century, carousels were common in parks around the world. Another such ride which shaped the future of the amusement park was the roller coaster. The origins of roller coasters can be traced back to 17th-century Russia, where gravity-driven attractions, which at first only consisted of individual sleds or carts riding freely down chutes on top of specially constructed snow slopes with piles of sand at the bottom for braking, were used as winter leisure activities. These crude and temporarily built curiosities, known as Russian Mountains, were the beginning of the search for even more thrilling amusement park rides. The Columbian Exposition of 1893 was a particularly fertile testing ground for amusement rides and included some that the public had never seen before, such as the world's first Ferris wheel, one of the most recognized products of the fair. In the present day, many rides of various types are set around a specific theme.
Some of the most popular amusement park with big variety of attractions and different type of rides are Disney World in Orlando, Florida; Disneyland in Anaheim, California; “Estrella de Puebla” in Mexico and Nippon Moon in Japan.
