Theme Park Hero
Candidate assessment wrapped in fun, engaging gameplay
Our very first game-based assessment, Theme Park Hero, is revolutionising the way businesses hire new employees.
While the game is bright and fun on the surface, there’s some serious psychometrics going on behind the scenes. This makes the testing more enjoyable for candidates while still providing you with the detailed data you need to choose the best person for the job.
About the game
Each candidate takes on the role of park manager. They are charged with keeping the park operating effectively and solving any problems that come up. During the ‘day’ (about 10 minutes of real time), they will complete several tasks, including:
- Popping specific labelled balloons for a special event
- Planning and constructing a new water park attraction
- Calculating the values of various token combinations
- Fixing a broken rollercoaster.
The mini-games are inspired by traditional psychometric tests. So while the above tasks might sound like a bit of light fun, they actually work in the same way as typical psychometric assessments. Each task measures slightly different aptitudes, and taken as a whole, the game gives you a valid and reliable indication of each candidate’s mental agility, attention, cognitive speed, spatial aptitude and numerical processing ability.
