  • Originality/Creativity-15
  • Park Layout-10
  • Ride Selection-10
  • Theming-15

3. To determine the total points for each park, the five judges totals for that park will be added together and then divided by five to get the average total score for that park. For example, one parks totals are 95.2, 98.7, 90.0, 92.6, and 93.5. The total for the five judges is 470. Divided by five = 94. That park's final score will be 94.
