Amusement Park Theme:
Today, theme parks have become an important part of modern city design, and no modern city with tourist attractions can be found without recreational and educational theme parks. The importance of theme parks in attracting tourists is so much that visiting them is in the plan of most travel tours along with other tourist attractions such as visiting zoos, aquariums, museums, art galleries and shopping malls.
Theme parks include a variety of functions and are created with the aim of interacting and responding to the needs of people of different ages and groups. Therefore, in the construction of such parks, it seems necessary to pay attention to the needs of the target audience, to observe the principles of aesthetics, cultural features and social tendencies. Achieving all of these goals requires the application of planning and designing based on the perception of patterns, thematic indicators, supporting spaces, and identifying elements.
A theme park includes landscapes, buildings, and attractions that are grouped together based on one or more specific themes and stories.
Amusement parks or theme parks are a group of fun activities, attractions and other events that are held in a specific place for the pleasure and happiness of the group or a large number of people.
Our effort is to take an effective step in designing different types of theme parks, and in this regard, we used creative and attractive themes and considered all different tastes and age ranges. Therefore, we chose different themes in order to achieve our goals such as amusement, children and adolescents, nostalgia, exhibition, religious, literary, natural, miniature, virtual reality and conceptual
