This week’s post has to do with Greek mythology and your god or goddess. Pretend that a new amusement park is opening up in the Tampa Bay area, and you have been asked to design a ride or attraction for this new theme park called Mount Olympus World. Based on everything you have learned about your god or goddess, what type of ride or attraction (be it purely for fun like a carousel ride or an educational attraction like Disney’s The Land) would you design? Keep in mind that what you design must reflect all that you know about your god or goddess. Be creative and have fun, but make it somewhat plausible. I am not looking for anything silly. Please include the following guidelines in your description:
1. Give your ride or attraction a name.
2. Be specific in its purpose. (Think about why a ride or attraction is in a theme park and why you re-visit your favorites.)
3. Be detailed in your descriptions. We should be able to picture your ride in our minds.
4. Design something you would go on. (Think about what you like, but do not copy or take an idea from Disney World, Busch Gardens, etc.)
I am looking for a good paragraph or two with a clever introductory sentence and a clever closing sentence. Please do not re-state your first sentence as your last.
Since many of you share the same god or goddess, please be respectful and do not borrow anyone else’s ideas. Make it your own.
