Water park EXAMPLE

Welcome to the Raging Rainforest
The Raging Rainforest is projected to be in the top three best water parks nationwide in 2016 by Times Magazine. As the creators of the park, we can promise a very well thought out layout for our park. Our water park was made to be convenient for all ages. The entrance and parking lot of the park is right next to the hotel, and 20 seconds away from the tube rental and first aid station.
There are two restrooms located on each half of the park, and the hotel is always open for emergencies. As for our world-famous cafe, the Cracklin’ Congo is near the bottom of the park and by an exit. We take great pride in our park and hope you enjoy all that the Raging Rainforest has to offer.
Raging Rainforest Waterpark Part 1 Picture (Tasks 1-8 turned in prior)
Our lazy river, The Amazon, flows throughout the park with multiple exits and entrances for your convenience. All of our four main slides, Thunder Thump, Toucan's Twist, The Anaconda, and, Tree Top Toilet Bowl, flow into one central pool. There are bridges located all over the park, so you can easily access all parts of the park. Our wave pool, Blue Lagoon, is in the far corner of the park so you can have a relaxing, noise-free, time. Tiger Falls is located right outside the hotel, at the top of the park. It holds the world’s longest water slide, Over the Rainbow that twist and turns all the way through the park.
The cost for a one day ticket to the Raging Rainforest costs $52. Season passes are $125.
The money for the tickets will be used to pay off the loans for the construction of our park, paying the employees, running utilities, and buying merchandise and food to sell. We chose the cost of our tickets to be $52 for one day because Kalahari’s tickets cost $35-59 per day, and Wild Water Kingdom tickets costs $32.99. We chose a price that was about the same as Kalahari’s tickets because our parks are very similar in size. Our park is a higher quality than Wild Water Kingdom because our water slides are projected to be one of the most favored slide in the summer of 2016.
To make our projected income, at least 79,996 people will visit our park annually. 534 people or more, will visit our park each day to meet our goals.
PROFIT YEAR 1
PROFIT for first 5 YEARS
Before bills are paid, we will have made $4,159,792 in one year. Before bills are paid in year 5 we will have made $20,798,960.
We are projected to make a profit of $159,992 in one season after bills are paid. At this rate, in 5 years we will have a profit of at least $799,960 after bills are paid. After we pay of all of our loans in 6-10 years we will have made $10,799,960.
