Our Involvement: Pre-Schematic; Schematic Design
In development on the Mediterranean coast about 270 miles southeast of Madrid, Paramount Park Alhama, Spain, features four themed zones that celebrate beloved film genres such as adventure, fantasy, science fiction, and the American Wild West.

This symbiosis between the creative and the technical kept RoseWell well-equipped to ensure design consistency across all disciplines.

Hershey's Create Your Own Candy Bar
This unique attraction, conceived by On Track Themes, is the world's first experience that allows guests to make their own candy confection on actual, customized factory equipment. Jason DePew partnered with On Track Themes from concept through completion.
Jason developed all interpretive signage content (e.g. "fun facts") throughout the attraction, revised walkthrough treatments and video scripts, helped to develop efficient guest flow, applied thematic elements at all points of connection, and the functionality of the attraction's guest interactives.
