Concept site plan depicts central arcade building and three central entertainment plazas.
Paramount wanted to capture the hard-driving energy of the original motion picture

How does one promote “fun” in the sun–drenched suburban culture of Southern California? How about a perpetual beach party...!?

Exline Design was retained by MANAGEMENT RESOURCES of Tustin, California, to master plan and generate a project identity for the potential development of a Family Entertainment Center in Aliso Viejo, California. With the possible site being located only fifteen minutes from the sandy shores of the Pacific Coast, this FEC concept capitalized on the teen–oriented surf and beach culture of the surrounding communities. The master plan organized the project’s attractions around three circular plazas that offered outdoor snacking and dining under giant colorful beach umbrellas. Splashing water fountains were located around a central performance stage where local pop beach–bands would play music on weekends and summer nights. Primary attractions included two go–kart tracks, batting cages, a giant water–slide, and a miniature golf course with a really “radical” surfing theme... “Gnarly Duuude!”

The development’s primary facility was to be a 10,000 square foot video arcade that also featured a well–known and popular fish–taco & burger franchise. Immediately adjacent to the arcade building was a heavily themed birthday party pavilion that could accommodate up to fifty guests. In the center of the development was a campfire ring designed for hangin’ out, cookin’ dogs, and listening to beach tunes under a starry summer night.
