And now for the results of Contest #446: we asked you for the next sports league to open a theme park:
First Prize: Future National Hockey League MVP will shout: "I'm going to Parad-Ice!" Ride the Slap Shot, a high-speed roller coaster, or the "Bumper Zambonis." Play a virtual reality game called "You're the goalie!" "Penalty Boxes" will serve Klondike ice cream bars, as well as Miller Icehouse or Anheuser-Busch's Ice Draft brand in 32 oz. "Stanley Cups." Ad tagline: "Parad-Ice. The world's coolest theme park." Norris Bohn, creative director, Bohn Adventures, Winston-Salem, N.C.
Second Prize: Welcome to Tennis World! Attractions include: The John McEnroe "You Gotta Be Kidding Me" Game, where the object is to berate staff for price of snacks. If staff member doesn't cry-you lose!; Revlon sponsors a "Who's That Girl?" game: identify another active female tennis player after Martina, you win!; and, for girls only, the ultra-scary "Run From Knife-Wielding Fan and/or Maniac Dad" ride, sponsored by TV series "Rescue 911." Ben Reiling, account exec, Contemporary Group, St. Louis.
Third Prize: The American Bar Association sponsors "Baseball! The Theme Park." Visit "Mr. Selig's Wild Ride" with its endless loops and dizzying reversals; or Donald Fehr's "Back to the Future" and travel to a land without baseball; and "The Agent's Thunder River Zero," where everyone gets soaked. Laura Ewing-Moore, ad exec, Publisher Inquiry Services, Boca Raton, Fla.
