Challenge: California Dreamin'

This week we head out west to Californy (the kinfolk said we should) to create attractions deserving of the Golden State. Of course, Scottye immediately goes to a dispensary and comes out with High 'N' Dry, a log flume that gives riders the feeling of being on that wacky tabacky. Sometimes, things go bad. Meanwhile, Jim has gotten lost in the mountains as he invites you to board Sequoia Slalom, a wild mouse-style coaster through (and through) a cache of redwoods as though you are...


Challenge: New Jersey, New Jersey

This week, it's all about that Jersey Shore, bay-bay! After a bit of discussion of our park, FreeWorld, and it's layout, we dive in to our attractions for the week. First up, Jim pulls a Four Seasons swerve before inviting everyone to go Dancing In The Dark on his heavily modified indoor Tilt-A-Whirl that would probably leave most wishing they had just stayed off the boardwalk. Meanwhile, Scottye skirts his responsibilities and hands the reigns over to his good friend Jersey Dan, who shares...


Challenge: Sweet Home Alabama!

This week, we take our all-american theme park to the home of the Crimson Tide and completely unsurprisingly both hosts use college football as jumping off points. Scottye takes his guests into a virtual reality stadium to be thrown around by the Roll Tide Rollercoaster starring Nick Saban and Paul Bear Bryant (of course). Meanwhile, Jim pitches a crossover with NASA as he welcomes everyone to Puntsville, USA, where the Rocket City has been tasked at helping Bama Football set its sights on...


Challenge: We Are The World (Pitch A New Theme Park)

It's a brand new season, and with it comes a new theme park! After discussing Jim's weather-shortened Disney vacation, both pitch their ideas for a new theme park. Scottye talks up Luna Land, a theme park based on the moon and all the expenses that might entail. Meanwhile, Jim asks why we would ever just settle on a Possum World and instead pitches Knokturnia, a park about all the world's nocturnal creatures. This is shot down, however, and you can listen in to find out exactly where we end...


One Year Anniversary Special

It might be 12 days late, but dagnabbit it's our one year anniversary show! We discuss some of our favorite Disney & Universal Studios experiences and then rank our favorite attractions from the first year of the show. Spoiler alert: we hope you like camel-adjacent animals that happen to be on fire. The next season will start on September 24th, so use your free week to catch up on all the past seasons or if you haven't listened much (SHAME!) but hear something from this episode you might...


Challenge: The Greener Yard (Finalizing Our Theme Park)

This week, after discussing possible updates to Epcot's Spaceship Earth, we finish up the third season by nailing down final layouts for Versus, featuring Scottland on the left and JimCity on the right. Jim starts things off by having trouble explaining something he should be good at by now and Scottye follows it up with a confusing romp around promenades that may or may not be shaped like the male anatomy as drawn by MC Escher. Remember to tune in next week as we look back at the first year...


Challenge: Wide Open Spaces (Random Name Attractions)

This week, after some bird-as-janitor watching somewhere in France, we get handed some random names with which to create attractions and neither of us really follows the rules. First up, Jim takes the name given to him last week and throws it out the window, instead finding a new random name - The Brass Knuckle, and decides on hiring a steampunk security gaurd to fill the name and, predictably, go haywire in order to be shut down by guests. Meanwhile, Scottye takes his name and throws it out...


Challenge: Squatter's Rights (Attraction For Each Other)

This week, we try our hands at some devious underhanded trickery and bamboozlement as we design attractions for each other's sides of the parks. Scottye takes one look at Jim's personality and decides what JimCity needs is Spaceship Purrrrrth becuase it's not an OppAtt park without a geodesic sphere parody, especially one about animated felines. Meanwhile, in Scottland, Jim has trapped some guests in a game known as Bad Libs, a trackless maze of their own dreams and fears hosted by a spicy...


Challenge: Electric Holiday (Robot Attraction)

This week, after a quick discussion of cartoon-based phone messages, your plucky designers get on the proverbial dance floor and do the robot. First, Jim brings his guests to the JimCity Expo Center and his attraction Fight Botz, a somewhat crowd-controlled robot battle showcase where even if your bot loses in the ring, you win by getting quality destructive entertainment. Meanwhile, Scottye sets up shop on the border to Scottland with JimCity's Happy Fun Ride Of Joy (or whatever it's...


Challenge: The Band Concert (Night Time Spectacular)

This week, we create dueling night-time shows for our park to help our guests close out their magical days in style. First, Scottye weaves a tale known as The Story Of Scottland, a show with a 5-drink minimum and cannonfire. What could possibly go wrong? Meanwhile on the other side of the park, Jim more blatantly inflates his own ego in the style of the rock opera by way of the band Jimple Minds in his show Don't You Forget About Me, an incredibly faithful and one thousand percent true story...


Challenge: Get Rich Quick (Sponsored Attraction)

This week it's all about getting that sweet sweet $$ as we set about finding sponsors for our park's attractions. First, Jim corals two lucky sponsors into a familiar duel as La Croix and Captain Morgan compete in a Beverage Showdown, each creating attractions that help you feel a little drunk or a bit more refreshed, plus you can get a photo op with the Captain himself, or maybe a french hipster moose. Meanwhile, Scottye's marketing department has been burning the candle at both ends taking...


Challenge: The Simple Things (Get-A-Souvenir Attraction)

This week, we dig deep into our brains to create attractions where our guests exit with their own souvenirs! Prices and participation may vary! Scottye brings his guests to The Creation Corner where they can partake in writing challenges, leatherworking, painting, weaponsmithing, and of course mixology. Meanwhile, Jim sets his sights back on WeDew Mountain (from episode 3 of this season) and invites guests to UBU, pronounced "You Be You", a place where you can make your dreams of taking home...


Challenge: The Grocery Boys (Food-Based Attraction)

Everybody loves food, including your pals at Opposite Attractions, so this week we decided to make food the star of our attractions in so much as we could muster. First up is a ride-to-a-restaurant known as Jimmy's Buffet: Escape From Flavortown where guests escape from Johnny Garlic's and into a much nicer buffet down the street while riding in their own booths. Meanwhile, Scottye proves there was not much for Jim's guests to escape from as he wields his power to will Finkatouille into...


Challenge: How To Be A Detective (Escape Room Attraction)

After a week of Scottye taking in the sights, sounds, and tastes of Orlando, your brave crew returns to create Escape Rooms (for a price!). Scottye invites his guests to part with their hard-earned cash to visit Southern Mythology, a distillery with a creepy past and tasty liquors. Can you find your way out in only an hour and bring with you the greatest treasure Scottye can dream up?? Meanwhile, Jim struggles to find a name, or much of anything, for his escape room he is now tentatively...


Challenge: Opposite Attractions In Mathmagic Land (Educational Attraction)

This week, your brave skippers tackle educational attractions! After a PassFast visit to New Jersey, Jim teaches the world to scream on his attraction, Forces Of Nature, a Test Track that's less about car safety and more about the pull of gravity and acceleration. If physical whiplash isn't your cup of mead, then swing on over to Scottye's emotional whiplash of an attraction The End Of The World Tour where parents will be delighted in having to explain to their children exactly what they...


Challenge: Lonesome Ghosts (Spooky Attraction)

This week, we continue our tradition of SpooooooOOOOoooky attractions! First up, Scottye delivers The Swing From Hell, a 1930's nightclub speakeasy rollercoaster with a 3 drink minimum of fire, brimstone, and some bitchin' tunes from Postmortem Jukebox, playing live every night at The Hellhole! Meanwhile, on the other side of the park, Jim has sent his employees out ghost-hunting and they may have accidentally incurred the wrath of the Marx Brothers in his rotating theater attraction That's...


Challenge: Jungle Rhythm (Jungle Attraction)

This week on our world famous program - the deepest darkest jungle attractions! Jim makes it all about himself as he invites guests to experience Jim's (Apparently) Amazing Jungle Adventure and boy is there a reason that one word is in parenthesis. Join Jim as he delights you with tales of a recent Central America jungle trek while his engineers and artists show you how everything really happened. Meanwhile on the other side of the park, Scottye takes guests down a very special river on his...


Challenge: All Together (Weird Kiddie Attraction)

This week, Scottye lays out the challenge for a crazy weird kiddie ride and comes out swinging with The Exquisite Corpse, a humdinger of an attraction that appears to feature almost every popular theme park attraction rolled up into a single mystifying conflagration of fun. It also has an 8-drink minimum, so maybe save this one for later in the day. The cocktail(s) of choice are the USS Bomber for the adults (link to the recipe below) and something known as Shit for the kiddos, an...


Challenge: Building A Building (Anchor Attractions)

This week, we look at the big show-stopping attractions for each side of our new theme park. Jim, having done little preparation last week, gets more in-depth on his vision for his side of the park and its new showcase attraction The Golden Coaster, because when one is talking theme park history, it's hard to ignore how important the coaster is. The attraction also includes exhibits, ways to design your own coaster (think CyberSpace Mountain), and other fun surprises. Meanwhile, Scottye...


Challenge: The Karnival Kids (Create A New Theme Park)

It's the season premiere and you know what that means - a brand new theme park! This time, Scottye and Jim put themselves against each other to create the Opposite Attractions theme park of their dreams. Jim controls one half, Scottye controls the other, a line in the sand has been drawn like so many sitcom sibling rivalries. What do we learn this episode? Scottye has lots of ideas, some of which include dicks. Jim has a history lesson, not so many dicks though. Please note that we cut out...
