Backpacking to Bear Mountain, just an hour’s drive from Manhattan. Our main office will be at Times Square, since there is a great amount of tourist. I would hire people to give out flyers, advertising our adventure recreation service. Our customers would be able to climb the Bear mountain trail in less than 2 miles to views over the green Hudson highlands.


  1. AMUSEMENT PARKS (15pts)

In my amusement park I would not have the same ride every time. Even the most dedicated fans will grow tired of an attraction if it never changes. I will create competition. Once the human body tastes a little of its own adrenaline, it wants more. So coaster fans will drive across the country to visit my park that has the tallest, fastest, newest thrill. I will engage all the senses. My amusement park will have attractions that engage all of a rider’s senses. I will create a song visitor will be humming. Music engages the ear and heart, amplifying the emotion of a conflict and the thrill of a resolution and at last a great storytelling because the essence of all great entertainment lies in storytelling.


  1. ARENA FOOD (15pts)

Classmates talked about how employees from food service companies at several stadiums do not wear gloves. The don’t know where the thermometer is, neither they know what temperature the food  it’s supposed to be at. They leave the ice scoop lie in the ice bin so they had to stick their hands in there to get it.  There’s so much volume going through at one time that it’s hard to do the necessary things to keep everything clean, however I will not sacrifice the cleanliness for expediting the service. I wouldn’t let servers to grab food with their bare hands if an order got messed up, neither cooks would send chicken out still raw in the center.


  1. GAME RESERVES (15pts)

All in all with the ongoing global threats to the environment it’s hard for me to see zoos as anything other than being essential to the long-term survival of numerous species. Not just in terms of protecting them and breeding them for reintroduction, but to learn about them to aid those still in the wild, as well as to educate and inform the public about these animals and their world to pique their interest so that they can assist or at least accept the need to be more environmentally conscious. Sure there is always scope for improvement, but these benefits are critical to many species and potentially at least, the world as a whole, and the animals so well kept and content, that I think there can be few serious objections to the concept of good zoos what they can do. Without them, the world would be, and would increasingly become, a much poorer place.



To keep them going and to make them successful  they must be accessible; people are engaged in activities there; the space should be comfortable and has a good image; and finally, it should be a sociable place; one where people meet each other and take people when they come to visit.


  1. GUIDES & ACTIVITIES (15pts)

I didn’t know that New York City offers a lot of free events, museum visits and family outings.  There are always free events, shows, parties and hundreds of other things to do in town with no money down.



I would like to be a Horse Identifier, in our visit we met a lady that does it and she said that the job consist in inspect each horse’s lip tattoo, colorings, and marking and compares them to the horse’s registration records prior to when the horse races. The horse identifier is also responsible for inspecting and verifying the identity of any horse to the track.



We visit the Arch in Grand Army Plaza that is Brooklyn’s Arc de Triomphe . For a tourist, the massive Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch at Grand Army Plaza, commemorating Civil War valor, will mean the sons and daughters of war heroes, wanted to recognize the achievements of a previous generation.

Food at Mercedes Benz Superdome

Mercedes-Benz Superdome
The home of the New Orleans Saints. The Superdome is home to multiple concession stands and restaurants that serve a large array of munchies for everyone to enjoy. And with New Orleans already being a culinary hot spot, its no surprise that guests going to watch a game can enjoy delicious concession stand treats like gumbo, jambalaya, seafood nachos, and po’boys at a game. And for the adventurous, alligator sausage is also on the menu at the Superdome.
