Recommended Future Research

Aside from expanding the SIMUL8 model to render the entire Busch Garden’s park, there are other areas of research that would greatly benefit our project. Gaining real data in regards to people’s propensity to go towards an attraction if they were given a free fastpass would be critical to determine the optimal number we would like to give out. We do not know how people would react to this, so it would be crucial to gain this information from new research. Not included in the model are the demographics of people in the park, specifically: age, height, and roller coaster preferences. Since some guests would not meet the height requirements, may be too old to ride, or simply are too scared to try a roller coaster it would drastically affect our model. We assumed that our guests were able to ride anything, so finding these data points and inputting this into a model would only make it even more accurate.
