We are working on two adventure golf course projects in Bournemouth and Colchester. There is a plan to build 20-25 of these across the UK and they should follow a single storyline, tying all the courses into one narrative.
Attached is an idea for a story. It still needs a lot of work but the foundation is there. All the theming on the courses will relate to the story and as such, the story is fundamental to the whole project. A storybook will be produced for each course and elements from the story will be present on the course itself. There is an amusement park in Norwich called http://www.bewilderwood.co.uk, it is based on a storybook also.
There should be an exciting, adventurous tone to the copy. Probably not a lot of text, our core demographic is 4-12 yr olds. It is an inspirational story to encourage children to believe in themselves. I’d like this quote to be the underlying purpose of the text - “Sometimes it is the people no one can imagine anything of who do the things no one can imagine.” ― Alan Turing. Whilst Barry seems to be the natural leader of the pact from the beginning, it is actually Anky who shines through as the leader through the development of the narrative. Its a kind of Wizard of Oz take on each character’s process of self discovery.
The story will appear in a storybook format, sold at the venues as well as online. There will also be a host of toys, collectibles and general merchandise available.
If you are interested in collaborating on this project, it would be good to see any samples of work related to this piece and an idea of cost for writing the first book. I imagine the first book will be 9 or 18 spreads, depending on what you think is best for this age group.
I look forward to hearing from you.
