What else do you think goes with a theme park other that just the rides. I know shows are one thing but what else. What eles goes with a theme park as far as more Attractions ?

What other attractions would you like to see in a park ?

I think you should get some professional counsel on how to start a theme park if you are for real.  Otherwise this 'park' is gonna be a big mess. :-P

Train, monorail or chairlifts to move people around.  Water parks tend to be a big deal with a lot of parks, and don't forget water rides.

Some parks like SFDL have performing arts centers and host big concerts. That ir a great way to make a lot of money for a park as well as to be considered an attraction.

10 acres would be nice. Darkrides and flumes are good choices. And SFGRAMBoy20, everyone always whines that no one from the industry ever asks our opinion; now it's time so please don't critisize him, k? Thanks!

Also, some calmer rides for people that don't like rollercoasters (like when a grandparent takesa grandchild to a park :) )

As far as other rides, a carousel is the soul of a park.  Other than that, I can't see a park without flying swings (for shame, BGT), bumper cars, simulator ride, and those nasty teacups (the only ride really deemed fit to be called a spin'n'spew, IMO).  Of course you MUST have at least one woodie, that's the heart of the park (IOA?).  Concerts and fireworks/laser shows are a must for "other attractions", perhaps a 3-D cinema.

Titan_Fan, PGA has a great double-decker carousel...forget the name/make, but it sits on the water near the front midway, has a great view... Waterpark is also HIGHLY recommended, adds greatly to capacity, spreads out the crowds, and is fairly inexpensive for the number of people that use it.

How about some themed go karts like the ones at BGW Like the ones that run on a center track but still allow some freedom. That was a great family ride that my friends little sister loved.
