Robin Hood would fit right in with Outlaw Run.

Nah, he could just be the mascot for Outlaw Run.  He's the outlaw, and we're the sheriffs.

I dont think it would be a bad idea if we had a horse or bull type ride like Bumper Cars, if we had horse rides, or walking trails through the woods. It would go along with the Outlaw Run theme, right? I know that carnivals have bumper cars and you dont want stuff that other parks have, but I dont think any parks have Horse/Bull Bumper Cars or walking trails. There are horse rides at places on the side of some roads, and Shephard of The Hills has them, but those are not really parks and it would go good with Outlaw Run theme.

The insurance for horseback riding is through the roof.  When I worked at a place in the 80s, the liability insurance was $2000 per horse per year, and we just didn't make that much to justify the cost.  The owners just took their chances on special occasions with a waiver, but that little piece of paper is not worth the paper on which it is written.

As for bumper cars, no matter what shape they are molded to look like, they are substandard for SDC and would detract and distract from theme.  We don't like the basketballs bouncing, and bumper cars would be akin to that.

How about walking trails that tell a story of Marmaros through the woods? Maybe with interactive buttons. That wouldnt cost much and there wouldnt be any liability there.

Now you're talkin'!  I would love to lead tours like that or work on the implementation of historical "information centers throughout the City.

Awesome! Maybe they can do that. All they need to pay for is the buttons, pictures, shovels to make the pathway, wood chips, and the work. It wouldnt take more than a month.

Do you work in the park?

It is a good idea but a lot more work than you describe. PID drawings and engineering work along with electrical infrastructure to support the buttons you propose. Safety on the paths and ADA guidelines. A lot more than a month for something like this.

No, Laroy.  I am a teacher.  Such could be solar powered, and perhaps could be a place where the scan of your ticket activates it.  There could also be a section of the SDC app that triggers a smart phone when it nears a particular location.
