Optional: Google Search downloadable resource ($1) to help with the Theme Park research!
creating your own theme park in Minecraft
Decide on the theme of your park, will it be an animal based attraction, rides based, or both?
If you decide to have an animal attraction, can you invent a new creature and design a suitable enclosure for it?
What will your theme park be called?
Sketch a basic layout for your park or create a flat design on a Lego Board.
Think of all the sections your park might have:
In Minecraft PE or PC/Mac or Xbox create a vanilla world in creative mode.
and start to build the park you planned!
Here are some examples from our projects;
A Wombat O'Saures world, which has a dinosaur sized creature very similar to a Wombat and a Diraffe O' Saures park, which has an oversized Giraffe called a Diraffe (we've been investigating dinosaurs recently so that inspired the development of these creatures!)
marketing Your Theme Park
Now it's time to create a digital brochure/poster to advertise your park!
Look at some brochures/posters from existing theme parks, what information do they include? Eg: Overview, ticket prices, main attractions, opening hours etc
