Let’s Go Play is a project focused on developing a themed amusement park based around a balance of traditional experiences and participatory play attractions.

As the themed entertainment industry continues to grow, so do the expectations of its guests, who put their hard-earned money toward immersive, mind-blowing experiences. What if we were to step back, and create an experience that is based on the essence of play in its purest form? The intent of this project is to develop a modern themed amusement park that combines active play environments, traditional attractions, and a touch of good storytelling to create an accessible, inclusive and truly meaningful play space for every guest – no matter who they are, how old they are, or where their life has led them.

I developed this infographic as a result of the research.
