KFC Food Outlet

Thorpe Park, UK

We re-themed the KFC outlet at THORPE PARK. It is situated in a zone in the Park which has supposedly been hit by a 130mph Hurricane Annie and a huge 40ft tidal wave. 

The wave picked up and threw a 7m long great white shark through the façade of the replica Amity Hotel within which is the actual KFC outlet. Also an 8m long fishing shack was supposedly thrown through the roof and now hangs suspended in the ceiling. The shark, fishing boat, surf boards, replica smashed theming and mock newspaper front pages were all made and installed by our scenic teams.

STAFF FOCUS: Tim DeCoste, Interactives Workshop Manager

Q: Name?
A: Tim DeCoste but they call me moose now there’s four Tims.

Q: What and where did you study?
A: Seaquam secondary school in my motherland of Canada. University didn’t seem challenging enough so I went to major in waterparks abroad.

Q: How long have you worked at Paragon Creative?
A: 3 years this month.

Q: What development / training have you undertaken since joining the team?
A: IOSH managing safely and the ever-important manual handling and fire warden training. And of course the sage mentoring of Jon Myers (Operations Director) and Chris Nuttall (Technical Director).

Q: Favourite Project to work on and why?
A: Dig It Dubai Springs. It was an achievable project that has resulted in a great success which is always a boost knowing the work our department put in to it, I’m sure others did OK as well. I also got to be involved in the installation, something I don’t often get to be a part of, luckily I still have my old work boots so I almost blended in seamlessly if not for my eloquent speaking and perfect hair.

Q: What do you like about working at Paragon?
A: Everyday poses a new challenge. It’s also close to home so that’s nice.

Q: Dream project to work on?
A: If we could do something ice hockey or maple syrup based I’d be very much in my comfort zone.

Q: What does your department do?
A: Builds big toys!
