Abstract: This document assesses physical aspects of themed environments, specifically pertaining to resort developments, through city design theory. The evaluation builds on the speculative study of built themed environments and their physical characteristic’s ability to alter an individual’s experience through design. The experiential elements concentrate on the influence of physical features effect on perception and memorability based on past research. This document aimed to discover if physical elements of design are present in resort development and to study how clear these elements are. Data collection involved an analyzed photo-survey questionnaire. The findings show most design elements in the case study of Blue Mountain Village were not obvious. Results were studied and organized to create recommendations and provide knowledge on how to design themed environments in several situations.
