2024-1 - World Wonder Park Contest

2024-1 - World Wonder Park Contest

Hey everyone!

Hey everyone! It's time for a new type of contest for the people who like to take building a bit more slowly! These park creation contests will each last around 6 months, and in each one you will be tasked with creating a full park, each time with a certain theme!

For this first round, you will be tasked with creating a park that is themed around a World Wonder, or a park with several areas with each one themed around a World Wonder! You can decide what you consider a World Wonder; you could for example consider man-made structures like the Pyramids or the Lighthouse of Alexandria, but you could also consider the Niagara Falls, or the Grand Canyon! You could even make up your own World Wonders, like the world's largest Toilet Bowl! What's important is that these World Wonders are grand, and a central focus in your park!


You are allowed to team up with several other players in this contest! 

  • Rule 1: You must build a park that is themed around one or more World Wonders. You decide what is a World Wonder, but it must be grand, and it must be a central focus of the park.
  • Rule 2: Your park must include the following:
    • A decorated park entrance with ticket counter and gate
    • A parking lot, or some form of public transport to the park (or both)
    • A transport ride
    • At least 4 rollercoasters
    • At least 4 other rides
    • One or more themed areas, each with a World Wonder as the central focus
  • Rule 3: The deadline for this contest will be on the 16th of March 2024 at 19:00 CEST! To prevent rushing, you will not be allowed to submit your park before 2024 starts. At some point during this time period, there will be a form of review session where you can submit your park for tips and feedback.
  • Rule 4: For this contest, you are only allowed to use objects from the RCT1 and RCT2 base game and their official expansions, OpenRCT2-official objects, and custom objects that are included in the DKSO v1 bench. You are also allowed to use a custom palette if you want.
  • Rule 5: The minimum map size for this round is 5000 tiles. This number will be calculated by multiplying the size of the map edges. You could for example make a map that is 50 x 100 tiles, or 75 x 75 tiles. 
  • Rule 6: There is no limit to the amount of opened rides you can have in the park.
  • Rule 7: Have fun!

How to join

  • Step 1: Join my Discord server. Discord is completely free! https://dkmp.wtf/discord
  • Step 2: Build your map and decorate it!
  • Step 3: When you are done with your contest entry, go on Discord, and send the save file to me in a Private Message. For the name of the save file, I want you to simply use the name that you use on Discord. For example, if your discord name is Deurklink, for the save file name, use Deurklink.park. After you have sent the save file to me, I will look if it follows the rules, and I will check for things you can still easily improve. You can resubmit your entry until the deadline of the round, even if I have already accepted it. Please deselect all unused custom objects before sending in the save file!
  • Step 4: Submit a story for others to read in the voting poll!

After the deadline has passed, I will put up a voting poll with all the entries. In this voting poll, everyone who is a member on my Discord, including you, will be able to rate all the other entries, and leave a short review.

When the voting period is over I will announce the results in a Youtube video!

Good luck, and have fun!
