About Competition

Challenge: Design a theme park with ‘the mystical land of Ancient Egypt’ as a theme. The park design must make all people feel welcome, and have a little something for everyone. 

A theme park is built on concept art, and this industry is thriving today. Understanding color theory and human psychology is key to generate anticipation and curiosity, in coherence with the theme. Although some aspects of the park require technical detailing, the focus is to be maintained on the theme manifestation in design.

They say, ‘Rome wasn’t built in a year’ and theme parks are a true testimony to that. It takes decades sometimes, to build the best of them and the process requires a lot of creative minds from different fields to come together.

The design of this park should help the audience be at leisure, but also pump them up with adrenaline and excitement. Most theme parks are built to attract children, but it receives a huge number of adult visitors too. The design must focus on creating an environment that is suitable for people of all ages and places.


Concept – Attractions and rides must be designed according to the theme.

Ambiance – The lighting, color theme, material palette, and other elements are to be meticulously designed to create a cheerful and welcoming ambiance.

Safety – The safety and comfort of the visitors on all rides and areas designed, will be a priority.

Future – The design should have enough room for modification and incremental growth for the future. Participants should develop a stage-by-stage plan for implementing this theme park.


Canberra is the capital city of Australia. It is a planned city, influenced by the garden city movement so it has huge stretches of vegetation. The city also hosts several cultural events that attract visitors from all over the world. The climate is extremely pleasant so many activities are hosted in outdoor environments.

The site is located in the Canberra region, around 2km from the airport. It can be easily accessed by the Majura Parkway. A cycle pathway is surrounding the site, through which people have a look over the park and its rides, attracting them in. The scale of the site is huge and it provides scope for future expansion.
