Bass Angler Sports Society Entertainment Theme Park
B.A.S.S. Theme Park Development Study
The Bass Angler Sport Society and publication developed
a preliminary design study for a one hundred-acre entertainment theme
park and new corporate headquarters. The theme park would be the first
of its kind devoted solely to the sport of Bass fishing.
The scheme for the park utilizes the anatomical
qualities of the celebrated Bass fish in developing construction elements
that can be assembled into pavilions and shed structures both
enclosed or open air. These fish-like facilities would then be dispersed
across the site and water elements to house the theme park's program
such as an aquarium, the lure museum, the various sponsor pavilions and
entertainment areas and rides for the family.
The site plan was to be developed with thematic ponds
representing the various natural environments that the bass lives. These
ponds would then serve as an outreach program of teaching individuals
the craft of bass fishing.
