WWI Theme Park
Eunice Lee And Sonia Grejtakova-Reynolds
Ma's Diner focuses on serving customers food and educating them on the Treaty of Versailles. Ma decorates the diner with what the treaty was and how it was important to World War I.
The treaty of Versailles was created to acknowledge and solve all the problems that were caused by WWI. President Woodrow Wilson created four points and it punished Germany for their involvement. It only upheld the prewar power structure and did nothing to prevent future wars.
Pa loves to bake and teach people about the League of Nations. Whenever customers come in and see the posters he puts up around the store, they always ask him about it and walk out knowing what the League of Nations did.
After the war in 1919, Wilson presented his 14th point peace plan with the idea to create an official gathering for the nations of great powers. Though Wilson was the one to come up with this idea, by joining it, it would have taken away Congress's freedom on whether to join a war or not.
This gift shop loves to teach about Woodrow Wilson. Customers come in looking for gifts and come out from lectures on what he did during his presidency.
Woodrow Wilson was the 28th president of the United States and led our country into World War I. He created the League of Nations, the 14th points post-war plan, Treaty of Versailles, progressive income tax, and the Clayton Anti-Trust act. He advocated for New Freedom rather than Roosevelt's New Nationalism.
Selling toys related to WWI, this store likes to express the U.S. neutrality in WWI.
The Neutrality in WWI can best be explained as the U.S. attempting to be impartial during the war. Britain and Germany had spent time trying to lure the U.S. into the war instead of appealing to both sides for economic benefits. Germany ruined their chances with the U.S. when they declared unrestricted submarine warfare and sunk a ship with many American lives on there.
The roller coaster has tunnels that the coaster goes through filled with WWI facts, especially the causes of the war. The ride stops at certain points so that the people can read the comments and continue with the ride.
The causes of the war were Militarism, Alliances, Nationalism, Imperialism, and the Archduke. Everything began with the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand. The militarism was the attempt to build a strong army/navy for war. Alliances were formed by Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy forming the Triple Alliance. This alarmed France, Britain, and Russia making them form an alliance. Nationalism motivated countries as it promoted strength and belief the superiority of a country.
Inside each little box of the ferris wheel are facts that customers read on the Fourteen Points that Wilson made at the end of the war.
The Fourteen Points were created by president Woodrow Wilson at the end of World War I as his peace plan. It focused on promoting peace with the countries and addressed self-determination, freedom of seas, free trade, no secret agreements, reduction of arms, and the league of nations. This was brought up during the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 but only the point about the League of Nations remained.
The maze has people scattered looking for a way out and if they answer some questions they find, they get a clue on where the exit is helping customers learn more about the war, specifically the events leading up to it.
The war began when Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated by a Serbian terrorist in attempt to strike chaos in the Austrian government. Angry at this, the Austrian government declares war against Serbia and as Austria's ally, Germany declares war on Russia, France, and Belgium. Britain joins the war to attack Germany. At first the U.S. remained neutral reaping the benefits by trading with both powers but that came to an end when Britain was determined to convince the U.S. to join and made several attempts like making a blockade to directly effect their economy and expressing how the Germans killed many American lives on a ship.
In laser tag, the people playing have to try to kill the other team and can only get ammo by answering questions on the Progressive Reformers during this time period. This educates them on specific ideas and gives them an idea on the reform movement.
The Progressive Movement sought to have the government controlled by the people in order to solve the injustices on the citizens and create economic opportunities. The goals were to protect social welfare, promote moral improvement, create economic reform, and foster efficiency. Such reformers are Jane Addams (founded Hill House and advocated Women's rights), Ida Wells Barnett ( exposed lynching and stood for equality for women and colored people), and Charlotte Gilman (helped promote the feminist movement).
