Digestive Destiny Food Slide Take a Ride Through the Mouth Guests will enter the ride through the mouth in a hamburger shaped vehicle. Remember this isn't Burger King so You can't Have your Burger Your Way. once inside the mouth, the guests will travel through the DIgestive system. While in the Digestive system, the guest will learn the basic functions of the Digestive system. Also, they will discover the pATH OF FOOD ONCE IT IS consumed. INTESTINE MAZE OUR THEME PARK WILL ALSO INCLUDE A MAZE OF THE SMALL INTESTINE AS OUR GUESTS TRAVEL THROUGH THE MAZE, THEY WILL DISCOVER THE STRUCTURE OF THE SMALL INTESTINE MORE IN DEPTH. So, you might want to skip lunch. OUR MAZE WILL BE A TOTAL OF 22 Acres, TAKING ABOUT 45 MINUTES TO AN HOUR TO COMPLETE. THIS IS AN INTERACTIVE MAZE, MEANING YOU ARE THE FOOD TRAVELING THROUGH THE SMALL INTESTINE. AS YOU WALK THROUGH THE MAZE THE FUNCTIONS OF THE SMALL INTESTINE WILL BE IN ACTION AROUND YOU. PANCREATIC POUNCE Design Team: Brandy Graves Dakota Koziol 5th Hour Welcome to Digestive Destiny Digestive Destiny is a great place to bring the family if you are willing to explore one of the most crucial systems in the body... The Digestive System! Digestive Destiny provides a wide variety of ways to learn and discover more about this system. Some of these include: Interactive mazes that allow the paricipants to see the body's function first hand Games that introduce information about the digestive system to the player Rides that are constructed anatomically correct, which give the individuals an opportunity to see how several parts of the Digestive System are placed in the body, and function in the human body on a personal level There are several attractions featured at the Digestive Destiny Theme Park including
Food Slide
Intestine maze
Gallbladder Splat
And even more! Overall, this park is meant to be utilized by the public to teach them about the Digestive System in an enjoyable and interactive way. As soon as you step foot into the entrance of this maze the functions of the small intestine will begin their processes. You will walk through the maze until you make it to the Ascending Colon of the small intestine As you travel through the maze their will be someone describing the processes of the Small Intestine to you. If you are hearing voices you're not going crazy. Esophagus Drop The Esophagus Drop, consisting of the esophagus and stomach, shows riders the path of food from the mouth to the stomach. The riders will enter the contraption, in food shaped carts, through the mouth. As we said before your food cannot be made your way. As they enter the mouth, the mouth will begin to mastacate and the tongue will force the riders to the back of the mouth.
You might want to bring your umbrellas because you may get wet as the salvatory glands secrete saliva! Hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen. Once you are swallowed you will be dropped rapidly down a 250 foot drop to the stomach via the Esophagus Once the riders are dropped into the stomach they will be spun around in the stomach acids (water) and become digested. After the particapants become digested they will leave the stomach through an opening created in the stomach Located in the theme park will be a pancreas shaped bounce area for our guests to use The objective to this game is to regulate pancreatic secreation. Don't worry kids it is not as bad as it sounds. The participants will be informed they are impulses being delivered from the nervous system With that said, they will be told to order the pancreas to secreate, and in order to do this they must jump on the pancreas . So you may get a little jumpy. the guests will be given a designated amount of time to perform this task, then another group will be given the chance to do the same thing Gallbladder Splat Participants will be asked to stand in a replica of the duodenum of the small intestine Inside the duodenum there will be a screen that will begin asking a series of questions.
I HOPE YOU STUDIED! Once the questions begin our guests will have a certain amount of time to answer these questions If they take to long to answer a question, or answer a question incorrectly they will trigger the gallbladder's bile secretions and become covered in bile. You may need some dry clothes after this game. A Ride on the Large Intestine Our guests will ride on a roller coaster that resembles the human Large Intestine They will be taken on a ride through the large intestine, and will discover the path of wastes through this part of the instestine As this occurs the large intestine will be active, so
not only will they see the inner parts of the large intestine, but they will also observe the large intestine in action The Final Exit In this ride the large intestine will be utilized as a water slide People will climb into the large intestine and slide past the rectum to the anus. Don't worry you won't come out smelling like roses. This is where they will be released as waste into a toilet shaped pool of water Its Relation to the Digestive System The Gallbladder is a sac located in the liver on its inferior surface. The gallbladder is responsible for storing bile between meals, reabsorbing water, and bile secretion. The gallbladder connects the cystic duct with the common heptic duct to form the common bile duct. This duct leads to the duodeum which is blocked by the heptapancreatic sphincter. As long as this sphincter stays contracted bile builds up in the common bile duct which gets pushed into the cystic duct, leading into the gallbladder where it is kept and stored for later use. When the heptapancreatic sphincter relaxes as a peristaltic wave reaches the sphincter, bile is excreted into the small intestine. Relation to the Digestive System The Esophagus Don't Feed The Human In this game the paricipants have to throw food into a larger than life size (50 ft tall) replica of the human mouth After a certain amount of food has made its way into the mouth you can see what happens to the food before it travels into the stomach.
This ride will go through the processes needed to travel to the stomach, such as mastication. This ride will also include visual representations of the teeth, cheeks, tongue, lips, and palate. Shelby Daglow Katelyn Kaschalk The Esophagus is a way of travel for food in the form of a bolus extending form the pharynx to the stomach. The Esophagus is a tube that is about 25 centimeters long that starts at the pharynx, travels through the mediatinum and the esophageal biatus, and becomes part of the stomach. Inside the esophagus is located a series of mucous glands that keep the interior of this passageway moist. As the esophagus attaches to the stomach the lower esophageal sphincter forms; which is normally used to keep the stomach's opening closed. The only time this sphincter allows the entrance to the stomach to open is when peristaltic waves reach the stomach and cause the sphincter to relax. The parts of the Digestive System featured in our park will include:

The Gallbladder
Small and Large Intestine
And some of the acessory organs Park Map From the game, users can learn how and when the gallbladder secretes bile. They can also discover where the Gallbladder is located and its importance in the human body through the questions asked during the game. The Stomach The stomach is a organ located inferior to the diaphram and can hold about one liter of contents. This J-shaped pouch is responsible for recieving the bolus(a ball of food and saliva mixture) that enters the stomach from its travels down the esophagus. The stomach also takes the bolus from the esophagus and mixes it with gastric juices, begins the process of protien digestion, is involved in absorption, and passes the food to the small intestine of the body. It is important to know that the stomach is divided into four regions, the cardiac, fundic, body, and the pyrloric regions. Inside the stomach are gastric glands which work together to create the gastric juice. In this juice are enzymes, such as pepsin, which are used in the digestive processes in the stomach. Intrinsic factors, also found in the gastric juices, are used to help the small intestine absorb vitamin b12. Gastric juices in the stomach are crucial in the processes of the Digestive System. This ride in the theme park will allow individuals to learn about the stomach and the esophagus. What we hope they take away from this ride is where these organs are located and some of there functions in the human body as they experience this ride. Relation to the Digestive System The Digestive System is a system in the body that is responsible
for the mechanical and chemical break down of food. It breaks
down the size of food physically and breaks down food into
smaller chemicals. The Digestive System is made up of the mouth
stomach, both the large and small intestines, the pharynx, esophagus,
rectum, and the anus. It also includes a number of accessory organs
the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and salivary glands. This
system has a surface area of 186 square meter, is open at both ends, and
gives nutrients to the body. In this ride participants can learn about the overall workings of the digestive system. They are able to do this by actually traveling through the entire digestive system. They will be able to see how the system actually funtions and is set up, allowing then to discover a part of the body they might not have known as much about. Relation to the Digestive System The large intestine is 1.5 meters long tube that starts in the abdominal cavity and ends as the anus on the outside of the body. The large intestine consists of a number of parts which include the cecum, appendix, colon, which is divided into the ascending and descending colon, and the tranverse and the sigmoid colon. The large intestine also includes the rectum, the anal canal, and finally the anus. The large intestine isn't unfunctional, but has little functions in the digestive system. When chyme(semifluid paste of gastric juices and food particles) passes through the large intestine this intestine has to absorb the nutrients,electrolytes, mucus, and bacteria that the small intestine may have missed. This ride should allow an opprotunity for the participants taking a ride to learn about the path of wastes through the large intestine, and the functions of the large intestine. The rectum is located near the end of the large intestine and is about 12 cm long and its function is to keep the intestine closed until feces ( parts of chyme that were not absorbed or digested by the digestive system) needs to pass. The anus is the opening to the outside for the large intestine. It is guarded by two sphinters, which control when feces are expelled from the body. The final exit is supposed to show how feces are expelled from the body. When people become personally involved in this process they will be able to learn about these organs function in the body. The small intestine is a tube-shaped organ that begins at the pyloric sphincter and ends at the large intestine. The small intestine consists of the duodenum, the jejunum, the ileum, and the mesentary. The small intestine has a number of functions. the small intestine digests nutrients from chyme, absorbs the products of digestion, recieves secretions from the liver and pancreas, and moves the leftovers to the large intestine. As people take this ride they will be able to learn about the functions and structures of the small intestine because they will be able to observe these things as they go through the ride. The mouth recieves food and breaks it down for consumtion and mixes it with saliva. The process of breaking down food or chewing is called mastication and this is the mouth's main function. The cheeks form the outer edges of the mouth and contain the muscles used in chewing. The lips are on the outside of the mouth and are used to determine the tempurature and texture of food. The tongue helps moisten food during mastication and forces it towards the back of the throat during swallowing and rolls the food and suliva into a ball called a bolus, and it helps move the food during the mastacation process. The palate creates the top of the oral cavity, and it is divided into the soft and hard palate. At the back of the palate are the palatine tonsils that help fight infection. Finally, the teeth begin digestion by mechanically breaking down food into smaller pieces which allows the digestive enzymes in the body to take action in a faster manner. This game will allow the players to learn about the begining steps in digestion because it will let them see the actual processes the mouth goes through to help digest the food needed to get the nutrients in the body. Relation to the Digestive System Caution: This ride is not for people with weak stomachs Keep you hands inside the burger at all times unless you want to be digested! As the burgers ride through the mouth they will travel into the Esophagus. Hope you ate a light lunch, because you will be plummeting into the stomach. Hoping you haven't hurled yet, you and your hamburger will be sent through stomach acids, and sent on your way through the small intestine. After you have safley (or at least we hope) made your journey through the small intestine you will make your way to larger things, or just the large intestine. Sadly, you will be exiting the food slide the way any other type of food does through the rectum and finally the anus. Don't get Dizzy! Wow thats a big mouth! Do you like target practice? Well then this game is for you. Hope you like see-food Times a tickin folks! So much cooler than a bouncy castle! Make sure you have your walking shoes because... The Voice of Reason. Bring Your Bathing Suits Make Sure to Keep Your Eyes Peeled. Now thats what you call a Toilet. Tick! Tock! Relation Relation to the Digestive System The Pancreas is a gland of the endocrine system, that secretes pancriatic juice. The pancreatic juice contains a number of different enzymes used to help digest several things. Such as, carbs, fats, protiens, and nucleic acids. There are several enzymes released by the pancreas that include pancreatic amylase, pancreatic lipase, tryposin, chymotypsin, and carboxypeptidase (the last three of which are protien splitting enzymes). The nervous system is responsible for the regulation of these secreations. Overall we want the guests to discover what the pancreas does and how it secreates its juices. Oh What a "Relief" Don't Forget To Flush! The Rectum and Anus Hope You Enjoyed the Ride!
