    Animated TV series about Aussie Theme park

    I discovered there was a place in Perth called Adventure World recently, but this Park is called “Nurry Brothers Adventure World” - I don’t think there’s an issue.
  2. A while ago I reached out on here for any helpful info about theme parks to assist me in writing an animated comedy pilot about a run-down Aussie amusement park. I’m excited to share that the first episode has been written and we are looking for people who want to be involved through Kickstarter: The link shows a short preview of the comedy (There’s a roller coaster called the Red-bellied Black Snake!) and also has some pledge rewards that may interest anybody who wants to become a cartoon character in a show! Additionally, I’ve also written about my Theme Park experiences as a kid growing up in Sydney during the 80s and 90s. (Wonderland, Old Sydney Town, El Caballo Blanco, SegaWorld, Green Valley Farm, Tomteland, Fox Studios Backlot Tour and others all get a mention):

    Needing theme park info for animated TV series

    Thanks! Will definitely check those out.
  4. My name is Tim and I'm an animator currently writing a pilot episode for an animated comedy series following the story of a guy who inherits a dilapidated theme park in rural Australia. At this point in time, it is merely a labour of love, but I realise I need a better grasp of the theme park industry as groundwork for my writing. I will be chatting with a friend who worked at both Disneyland and Australias Wonderland through the 80s/90s, but I've come across this forum a few times as well. I'm after ANY helpful info. What is the common staff structure of a typical small theme park? Do they hold staff meetings, and where? What sort of work happens before/after the parks opening times? How much happens onsite (ride design, food etc) and what are common important roles at any amusement park? Any insight would be really valuable!
