Amusement Park Attraction
In Ohio there are several amusement parks. New rides typically cost $8- $16 million (Taken from an article in USA Today called "Roller coaster lovers get a new high — 420 feet"). Top Thrill Dragster cost $25 million (same source). I imagine it also costs a lot of money to operate these rides each year. With all this money being spent, what if amusement parks used the money for a different attraction? I want to see a never-ending treasure hunt. The amusement parks could start the hunt with $2 million. They could take the average of operating all the rides and add the money to the hunt each year. People could find tokens anywhere in the park that would be traded in for money. The $2 million could be split up into any dollar amount, e.g. $200, $1000, $500000. All the tokens would be hidden. The more valuable tokens could be camouflaged to look like it was a part of the park, e.g. clear tokens in the water park. I used to find others lost change as a kid in a nearby amusement park. I found a lot of things but money was the most fun. I hope this would bring as much fun as I had growing up, of course this would be on a much larger scale.

Reward: A head start would be nice :) but a discounted ticket would be nice too.
