THORPE PARK Resort is planning a new themed zone. Students will work in groups and take on the role of psychologists and data analysts to help them research and design rides for the new zone. They will investigate how psychology can inform both theme development and visitor experience and how data analysis can inform the ride and vehicle design. They will need to put together a group presentation about their ride ideas for the new zone informed by their research from a theme park visit.
This project involves a visit to THORPE PARK Resort or a similar attraction to collect data. Pre-visit and post-visit resources are provided for students to complete the CREST Discovery Award.
