A fusion between modern and a classic illustrated park map with a hommage to my favourite park map from 1992.
The first contact with Bayern-Park went back to 2014 when the park requested for a new park map. Three years later finally a call to start with the project.
Since my first time in a theme park holding a theme park map in my hand it was a dream to draw one of those maps one day. As a theme park enthusiast and designer finally it was possible to realize all the thoughts for a park map according to my imaginations.
In a meeting in the beautiful countryside near Munich the park shared the briefing and requirements for the map. Such as creating a classic but modern park where the pathways and structures are clear. After sharing my ideas and imagination of a park map being representative and interesting with popping out elements we directly reached a common agreement with each other.
One special request was, that the park map should also show the different style of plant and trees in the place they are to be a possible orientation point of the map, beside many other small details like statues and art sculptures.
The first finished park map in 2017.
Details from the dragon to frogs and people having fun in the flume ride. Even small details like roses and other flowers are featured.
The Idea of dynamic and non-proportional attractions plopping out I kept in my heart with me since I have first seen the 1992 park map of the theme park near my hometown Cologne, with which I grew up with. The happier I was that the Bayern-Park liked the Idea the same as I did.
The entrance area with the traditional Bavarian wood house and church. The rafting with boats and "Thaolon" are highlighted.
