Does anyone know where I can find information about theme park design and/or layout?

I've tried Yahoo but came up with nothing that could help me! Thanks guys. -Tyler

Why don't you look at exsisting park layouts that are proven and take it from there. You could look online at the parks to get that info.

Well, I have several park maps from different places. But what I'm looking for is like.... design, theory, usage of land, building design/layout, etc. -Tyler

But try this:

or


http://www.themedattraction.com/design.htm

You might be able to call a theme park and speak to a customer service rep to find more resources. (Believe it or not, the smaller parks are more customer oriented in this manner.)

Good luck!

Tyler, you can also try this:

They tried valiantly to help me locate stats on the haunt industry (back when that most recent fire occurred at one of the Six Flags locations).

As a side note, you may also be interested in this:
