XIBALBA--Realm of the Dead

a new coaster/darkride coming soon from Fisherman

Xibalba was believed to be the Mayan Underworld of the Dead...a place of no escape...full of traps and doom. The Mayans believed the entrance of Xibalba lay deep within the flooded caves on the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula.

The ride uses the tilt coaster with several launched sections. Here are a couple of teasers to whet your appetite.

Okay...I've never used RapidShare before so this is a test. Here's the video (its about 20 Megs so it'll take a while to download and I fixed the broken link):



NOTE: Pumper and Marnetmar's darkride set is required for this park.

WOW looks amazing, hey u can have an avatar now.:D :up:

This ride sounds similar to the ride i announced today, which is also a tilt coaster that indoors, with a spooky theme. O boy, i guess my idea isn't so original anymore. O well. I guess i'll make mine a tad bit different then.

Hey which tilt mechanism are you using? I used the one with the pivot...aren't you using the elevator one? Anyway...yours sounds awesome too! Mine has a spooky jungle theme...sorta Indiana Jones-ish. I'm just glad to see lots of peeps making darkrides. Maybe Atari and Frontier will take the hint that we like darkrides. ;) Maybe for the next expansion?

Yours sounds cool too, Fisherman. I just realized our rides do different bit. Your's is a tilt with a spooky/jungle and mine is called Nightmare which is inside a haunted castle, where all the evil creatures reside. I'm using a few lifts and stuff like there. I'll be watching this one for updates. I hope Atari makes a darkride expansion. We all love darkrides! lol

Do u have Vegas5 or something, cus that font is cool.

Awesome looking ride btw :D:up:

07-29-2005, 09:39 PM
Thanks! No I don't have that. The font was just a free font I downloaded...I looked for a long time for just the right font. It is called Abaddon.

Now I'm looking for just the right music for the video. :D

Anything by Fields of the Nephilim would be appropriate

Okay, I finally added the video of the ride to the bottom of the first post. I've never used RapidShare before so let me know if it didn't work. Does anyone know of any other video hosting sites that accept larger files like RapidShare does?

-Derek :)

Just watched it...some of the best theming i've seen on RCT3...and great layout.... i would love to see that built as a real ride.... heck i would love to ride it :)

I also love you line.... it builds up suspense before the ride....kinda like the rides disney and universal make...

The tilt section with going to the misty underworld...that was awesome

Keep up the good work

08-16-2005, 07:25 PM
Thanks, Donut!!! YAY! It worked! Now I can continue to make larger videos...Putfile has that 10 Meg limit. I'll post some screens later on...I don't want to give away too much of the ride just yet. ;)

The ride download will be ready soon...I just need to upload it...which is nasty on dial-up. BUT...we're finally getting DSL so it'll be available soon. :D


08-24-2005, 04:47 PM
Yay, another darkride-fan!!!
Great work Fisherman! Sadly the download link for the video didn`t work anymore, but I`m looking forward to the parkdownload.

I love the first impressions on your pictures. The picture of the rides entrance and exit is really atmospheric. And the tilt section in between that ride event is just genius!!!

08-24-2005, 06:20 PM
Oops! I think I accidentally deleted it! I'll re-upload it. Sorry...

Yeah! I LOVE dark rides! :D


08-30-2005, 10:26 PM
The park file is now available in the first post.

Also, I fixed the video link...it's working again. Let me know what you think!

-Derek :D

I forgot to mention...Pumper & Marnetmar's darkride set is required for the park file. Thanks to them for their awesome scenery! :D

XiBALBA is fun!!! I like the tilt section even more while actually being on the ride. I dare to say, that this might be the greatest way to use this ride-event! You even made the track appear like it would continue and lead in an inferno of flames! The layout also feels realistic and keeps the train going without too many slowdowns.
If you want you can have a look at Ouroborus - my attempt of an themed coaster. (Just search for Sagaland) But I don`t have any time to shoot a video of it at the moment...

BTW, you should keep naming your rides with an X at the beginning. Makes it easy to find them, when loading parks!
:up: :D
