Storyline of the Time Machine Restaurant

Professor Tempus welcomes the guest aboard of his Time machine. Today he is going to take you on a special journey to Saturday the eighth of September, 2125 for the FIRST time!

But the time warp is not going as planned and the guests will travel through various times and places, like the Ice Age, New York, Jurassic era and much more. It is a big adventure with a lot of challenges which can be solved with the help of the guests

How do they get back home?

New leisure concepts

We see a trend in cruise ships becoming more important than the destination to which it is sailing, these large vessels are turned into small floating theme parks with immersive environments. Thinking about it, a cruise ship nowadays has basically the same ingredients as any major theme park resort: experiences, F&B and lodging. Therefor our knowledge as guest experience designers for the theme park industry adds a lot of value to the overall guest experience while these ships get developed more as a leisure concept.
