On the Subject of Amusement Parks

RMC KTANE Confirmed?!

Congratulations! Thanks to extortionate pricing and underpaid staff, your amusement park has reported record profits! Your task is to decide what type of attraction to invest your profits in for next season.

The name of your amusement park is displayed in a banner at the top of the module. The screen at the bottom of the module can be cycled using the arrow keys to show the three attractions currently available for purchase.

You should base your decision on the desires of three fans of the park who have been consulted, as well as any restrictions which apply to your specific park. Follow the steps below to determine the most suitable attraction to install, and select the screen while it is displayed to disarm the module. Selecting an unsuitable attraction will cause a strike.

Deciding which Fans to Consult

The wheel below shows the names of 8 fans of your amusement park. To determine which 3 to consult, traverse the wheel as follows:

  • Take the number of batteries on the bomb, modulo 8 plus 1. The first fan to consult is the fan whose bio number (see below) is this number.
  • Take the sum of all digits in the bomb's serial number, modulo 7 plus 1. Move that many times clockwise around the wheel, starting from your previously-selected fan to obtain your second fan. Repeat to obtain the third fan to consult.
  • If you land on a fan you have already selected, move one space further clockwise and use that fan instead.

Once you have determined which three fans to consult, use the information on the next page to determine how to use their preferences.

Using your Fans' Preferences

Each of your chosen three fans has their preferences listed in their bio below. Using these, alongside the statistics for attractions shown in the attractions directory, assign each attraction a single point for each fan preference that matches one of its statistics. If the bomb's serial number contains at least 1 letter in a fan's name, double all points assigned by that fan.

Park-Based Restrictions

Not all parks are able to install all attractions. Any attractions matching a description corresponding to your park must not be chosen. If your park is not listed below, it has no restrictions.

Park Name Additional Conditions Restriction
Cruelton Towers N/A Due to a height limit, the Drop Tower, Ferris Wheel, and Star Flyer may not be installed.
Dismay World N/A As our visitors are mostly young, no rides intended exclusively for adults may be installed.
Six Drags There are at least 6 batteries or at least 6 ports. Attractions with heavy scenery may not be installed.
Cheddar Point Serial number contains at least 1 letter in "FAIR". The Safari and Log Flume may not be installed.
Not Berry Farm N/A As we're so low on space, no Roller Coasters can be installed.

If all attractions are forbidden, proceed as if none of them are forbidden.

Your final answer is the attraction available on the module with the highest number of points which is not forbidden by a park restriction. If there are multiple such attractions, submit the one which comes first alphabetically.
