‘Cracking ideas’ competition

Design your own theme park competition!

As Wallace and Gromitt’s site suggests:

“Theme parks need lots of clever contraptions to make sure they stand out from the crowd. In fact, theme parks are built on cracking ideas! Do you have any of your own?

This competition is based around patents, trade marks, design and copyright. There are two ways to take part:

  • Complete each of the 4 Eureka Challenges we’ll be launching throughout the year.
  • Or fill in our competition form then upload your finished entry. You can complete as many forms as you like!

There are three age categories 4 – 7, 8 – 11, 12 – 16 and four regions England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland.

Open until 31 March 2011 there are loads of cracking prizes like animation packages, a fabulous family day out at Chessington World of Adventures, signed Wallace and Gromit books, goodie bags and an amazing trophy created by Aardman.

So go on – see what cracking theme park ideas you can create! ”
