View Full Version : kooky Island! Ghost house download works!

08-11-2005, 03:28 PM
Guys Im doing my first theamy park, like you guys do, accept its going to be scary! MUAHAHAHAHA! My ideas, are to have a mine coaster go into a mountain, and a Kooky Mansion ride! And it will be a scary world after all? There will be Haunted Monsters everywhere, like Frank's House, (Has hotdogs in it too.)
Witches Brew Shop! Zombie Gardens. Ghost House, Shows everywhere, of pirates fighting each other, on a ship! Mummy's Tomb ride, Dracula's Blood Drinks! Alien UFO walkthrough. Spooky Island Cafe' and mall! A water show. Spertaculer fireworks. Scary thrill rides, and kiddie rides! A train ride, that takes you into the woods, and you can see cemetarys, wildlife!
I have many more that im thinking of! I need ur help to think of some ideas, for rides and shops and suggestions okay peeps!

EDIT) Im telling you whats going to be in this park. And I am following Kidfox's request.

08-11-2005, 03:33 PM
Please, please, please, please, Plokoon. I'm asking your for the third time, pay more attention to your posts. I believe more people find it irritating puzzling your posts together to make correct sentences. And also read Kidfox' thread on the top of the exchange forum.

08-11-2005, 03:35 PM
Sounds great, but this will be difficult to put together, and here are some suggestions, first, I don't think pirates would be so fitting for a scary park, leave that for paradise island, and two, I don't like the idea of UFO walkthrough, leave that for sci-fi, but you have some good ideas. And you should go ahead and start on at least one of these projects and post screen shots, that's how you'll get peeps interested. This is gonna be good.

08-11-2005, 03:38 PM
Im done Winler's park, this crrently the new one im working on. Yes I am adding Ghostly pirates, because its like at a island. Ill take away the aliens.

08-11-2005, 07:20 PM
can u change the name i made a park with the same name here:http://www.weeweeslap.com/track_exchange/detail.asp?tid=7165

08-11-2005, 07:41 PM
Thanks for telling me, it now is called Kooky Island!

08-11-2005, 07:50 PM

08-11-2005, 08:23 PM
Heres a concept of the island, enjoy, I had to mug five secerety guards to get it ;)


"This park has scares forevery age," says Kyle Spooky.

You may think this parks small, but the paths are like a strip. Like the Las Vegas Strip.

08-11-2005, 08:34 PM
Ummmm........try taking out the pirate ships and make something spooky themed.

08-11-2005, 08:44 PM
There ghostly pirates, and the whole park is spooky, Ill have all those buildings! Haunted mine coaster, Spooky Mansion, Spider's web, Aracnid, Mummys gifts, Witchs brew, Franks haunted dogs, Castle of terror, Dracula's blood drinks shop, Ghost ship, hell Blast, monster mash, Kooky Mall, scull hanger, zombie gardens, Tyrant, and sharks trail.

08-11-2005, 09:38 PM
Holy crap, that's going to be really cool, I'm starting a spooky park too. But this one's probably going to be way cooler, yours is actually planned out. Looking forward to this one.

08-11-2005, 10:04 PM
Thanks, but yours is going to rock too, yo park novice made me a starwars wallset! Anyway, thanks ill try to get more insiders concept photos, (Damn gotta sneak in the base again. . .)

08-11-2005, 11:43 PM
lol you mugged 5 security guards for that? :)

Well... it an instresting idea.... if you ever want any ideas just ask me :D i love the whole spooky trends

08-12-2005, 12:02 AM
Errr yes, I had to. Construction will start on Friday, so espect at least one more park concept!

Forbidden do u have any ideas for my park?

08-12-2005, 09:05 AM
Construction has been changed due to "Taking break, go out with your friends"so you will be able to see construction shots tommoro!

08-12-2005, 11:17 AM
Heres my Park Logo!


Construction might start tonight

08-12-2005, 12:10 PM
This looks stupid.

Your sposed to give critism but sayin thats stupid isn't helping him at all. I think its a great idea and maybe if you said I like it but..blah blah it would help him more. Looking forward to this one plokoon:up:

08-12-2005, 12:15 PM
:( :sulk: :cry: :cry: :mad: Wait intil i get screens! Please do not put negative comments on here.

08-12-2005, 12:52 PM
To tell you, I just landscaped the island, made the entrach and bridge, made the main strip!

08-12-2005, 01:02 PM
Okay, I don't know if you expect us to get all excited over what a 5 year old drew in Microsoft Paint... but, you're not gonna get that reaction from me.

Several people have asked you to at least TRY to make complete sentences. I will do the same. Your posts are painful to read.

What is an entrach? Do you mean entrance?

Coaster Phantom also mentioned reading the stickied thread by KidFox at the top of this forum. I'll make that same request of you. It's regarding starting threads with a significant amount of things for us to see... not just "Here's my idea..." Besides that, your name was brought up in that thread due to your multiple posts in a single topic (usually your own) just to bump your thread.

You can go on and on about what your ideas are... but at least show us how you are implementing those ideas in the game. Otherwise, you come off as being all talk, and no action (Save for some ridiculous drawing from MS Paint)

08-12-2005, 01:26 PM
Okay fine, im going to show u what ive done so far. . .
Guests enter the entry.


And peeps also get to have fun with there favorite pal Jack the pumpkin!

heres the island, no mountains yet.


Sry ytivarg, btw what do u mean my posts are puzzeling?

08-12-2005, 03:31 PM
I got a pretty big update! Lets see I got Spooky Mall done, with a pool on top of it!


Monster Mash (Also plays the monster mash music)


The top of the park! I have a face on the pool roof top!


My not even finshed Ghost House!


What do you guys think?
More updates tommorow.

08-12-2005, 03:40 PM
lol so funny... when i made horror parks i also use the monster ride as a monster mash ride (but i usually sorround it with buildings and call it "Courtyard Monster Madness".

Anyway.... i thing your entrance is a bit too blocky... the mall is nice... but to bright.... make things more dark

it is a good concept, i like the bridge.... that is a good feel and the idea of the ghost house is good (make it exit into the mall... :D

08-12-2005, 04:10 PM
I cant make the mall more darker. It will be just hard lol.

08-12-2005, 04:13 PM
Hmmm guess so lol...btw are you gonna use any of my ideas i gave you? :)

08-12-2005, 04:14 PM
Some of them, man where are these ppl, there not looken at it! :( grrrr. . . Sorry for that. I like the sewer Idea ride through!

08-12-2005, 04:29 PM
yeah that was my favorite :)

08-12-2005, 04:38 PM
Oh my god this newbie, acten like a 2nd grader spamming the heck outa the forums!

08-12-2005, 04:40 PM
i just said that was my favorite ride idiot... if your gonna act like that then fine...geez

forget about using my ideas then

08-12-2005, 04:41 PM
sry, man, yeah I do like the sewer idea. Im going to try to add Kooky Mansion!

08-12-2005, 04:52 PM
I thought it was Kooky Island, but the entrance says Spooky I(s)land. So what's it gonna be?:p

By the first looks it looks good, not great yet. I just don't get the feeling that this park is going to be scarry. Maybe you should change the terrain a little bit. What about more hills and fog, open fires and off course scary theming.

Also, the strip isn't a good idea for a scary park. You should make some little paths crawling in dense dark forests, this will make it a little bit more mysterious. You could also add scary sounds that can be heard out of the forest.

I think a boulevard/strip is a good idea for a main street or something, but in this park it takes away the scary-factor.

Best of luck! :up:

08-12-2005, 04:59 PM
I got this idea from Scooby Doo tthe movie, and its not susposed to be that scary. . .

08-12-2005, 05:10 PM
i dont like this park i dont what its so supposed to be is it supposed to be scary or not?

08-12-2005, 05:12 PM

08-12-2005, 05:12 PM
Oh, I thought this was going to be a pee-in-your-peep-pants-park.

And, I've never seen Scooby Doo.

08-12-2005, 05:20 PM
Dude dont be mean, you dont see me maken fun of you.

08-12-2005, 05:22 PM
This is based on that cruddy movie scoobie doo (worst movie my sis has put me through)... dude.... i thought this was as coaster_phantom said, a pee-in-your-pants park

Small Print
08-12-2005, 05:22 PM
NO FLAMING its a rule, or this might be trolling, even though i dont know what that is.

08-12-2005, 05:23 PM
alright srry

i guess i should wait until i see more
well actually im not gonna watch this anymore
as plokoon flammed me

I don't want to insult you or make fun of you, Plokoon. With a pee-in-your-peep-pants-park, I meant a really scary park. You know when you are really afraid you pee in your pants.

08-12-2005, 05:55 PM
lol, yeah now I know what you mean lol! My park is growing! I have some buildings built.

08-13-2005, 12:19 AM
Okay, what do you guys think of a haunted hayride in the island, called Night Fright?? It would have monsters behind trees waiting to scare you! Its just a idea. And I think im a failure :( Its just that all my parks stink, they dont look, good, I think I should give up. :(

08-13-2005, 12:59 AM
It's not that your failure...your ideas are great...but not many members wanna watch a park based on a movie for 5 year olds (heck must of us are teen,dults or preteens) Even tho you totally FLAMMED me before...i'm still here to watch... so make the ride (maybe it should go into a haunted barn or house? you just gotta be creative :)

btw you doubled posted

Don't give up Plokoon. It's all about practicing. You can also look at other parks, maybe you can get some inspiration and building strategies/tricks there. It's all about practicing, but eventually you'll get better. And also, try to make what's in your head with all the details and stuff. Must of the time you'll have to mix some themes to reach this.

08-13-2005, 11:11 AM
Thanks Ill try that, its just the headackes I get from this games.

Its your park. Put what you like. If you want a haunted hayride, then you should include one. The more the merrier, right. :) Don't worry about it not looking good. Hey, if you're having fun at it, then thats all that matters Plokoon. Don't give up on having fun. And all those dark rides you make inspired me to try to make a dark ride. :)

Yeah, I noticed that too. You could always call it "Eyeland" Hehe. That was the last level in a game I have called Decap Attack. :p

08-13-2005, 12:28 PM
Yeah I better change the sign, before the park inspector sews me ;) Im working very hard on the ghost house, I will deffinantly, make a video for it, its just that its a small tall house thats crowed, and its hard to see where you put the walls and stuff at.

08-13-2005, 12:48 PM
This a picture of the fun house in Shyguy's Wonder World.


You can see how he hides the rest of the attraction from the public. You can make your dark ride as big as you want. The only thing you have to do is leave the building like it is and add a big structure with all the scenes and the attraction in it. You can cover the big building with trees, hills or whatever. The rest is up to your imagination

[QUOTE]Originally posted by Plokoon11

My opinion of you by reading your comments on this individual thread is that you are a bit 'full of yourself' and 'a bit big headed' and I do not think this is an understatements. I personally think you are more of a 'newbie' and a 'fool' then that you think of ForbiddenDonut. This is my opinion, others may or may not agree with this.

You also state somewhere in this thread 'do not post bad comments please'. Is it within reason to presume that the reason you have put this thread on the Atari forums to show of? The whole point of threads is to get critisim on how to improve your park. You should be thankful to those who posted, in your words, 'bad comments' they took the time to write that comment so you can improve your park and building abilities. If you cannot take 'bad comments' then prehaps you shouldn't post on the Atari forums.

08-13-2005, 01:22 PM
i was talking about this one dude that got me very very mad, she kept spamming, in the general forums, I think shes banned, I wasnt talking about Forbbiden Donut. BTW, I inclosed the track of Ghost house, now I need to make it look like a house ;)

EDIT:| A picture of the house so far!
I no it does not look like a house but Im going to cover it up like a house! http://img359.imageshack.us/img359/8282/newlyhouse6nm.jpg

08-13-2005, 01:47 PM
Well maybe you could do it like shyguys ride.
Do a long building front, like maybe 10 squares long and build it back like 3 squares, then build a huge building behind that, which will cover your darkride. But to the public, it will look like it goes through the actual building, which they can see the front of. :):up:

It'll look much better than a rediculously tall building like you have done :p

08-13-2005, 02:11 PM
Finally Im finished! Wait intil you see a video! Some history about the house first. . .

The Federicks, who built the House, in 1601. They decided to make is a hotel for the cival war solgers. Many cival war solgers did die, that explains the grave yard next to the house. In 1902, many generations of of the federicks have came and past. One crazy Federick member, named Fred aka Crazy Fred, or The devils child, owned the house. He called the house, Ghost Inn, many years, many people have stayed and never came out, many neibors heard screams in the house. Some children asked sir, why did you call this Ghost house? But he would never talk, answer. In 1950 Fred Federick, went to prison, because, the cops presumed he killed them all, or shall we say murderthe guests.1975, Fred escaped Prison, and was never heard of again. In 2005 it turned into a ride, but once in a while a car would come out empty with blood on it. Its time for us to check this ride out. . . . .

Pictures. . .



What do you guys think?

08-13-2005, 02:16 PM
I really like it:D niceone plokoon

08-13-2005, 02:19 PM
It took awhile! Inside yull find out the mystery of what the killer looks like! (If you read the story. . .) The ride, will feature ghosts in it, sculls, old hallways, attic, basement, and all kinds of stuff!

08-13-2005, 02:20 PM
hmmm... here a tip plokoon... lower a square in the ground and build 50% of the ride there... then do what shyguy does (and almost all theme park companies do) and palce the decorated building in front and the ugly in the back :D

btw you should of said... stupid spamming malamalashog (yeah i know it was her) instead of just saying stop spamming the forums you spammin second grader cause the guy who posted before you will think you said that to him/her.

i wrote this before you finished to dont be mad.... btw it's spelt "Soldier" :) and i like it very much plokoon (claps)

08-13-2005, 02:22 PM
This is susposed to be a real house, not a made one, if you read the story you will know that its a real house!

08-13-2005, 02:25 PM
good job plokoon (i gave the hint (as well as many peeps here)
for future attactions) i just have a couple words: Now THATS a Pee in your pants ride!!! :)

08-13-2005, 02:30 PM
Well Plokoon, you did a good job. It looks scarry:up: Waiting for the vid...

08-13-2005, 02:30 PM
Dont forget about the video thats coming! Its going to be scary! Theres going to be a few twists and surprises! You will be faced with the killer! And with the scary music Im going to play in the video is going to be scary!

08-13-2005, 02:49 PM
wow I gotta give u 5 stars, thats the best darkride i've seen u build, keep building them like this and you'll earn your title :D:up:

08-13-2005, 04:10 PM
Heres the video! It keeps skipping through! Commets will be much appreciated!

EDit) theres something wrong with rapidshare, I press upload and it says page cannot be displayed
Fised it heres the video! http://rapidshare.de/files/3950940/Ghosthouse2.wma.html

-[A.S] Fanie-
08-13-2005, 04:11 PM
Does the same with me:up:

Try www.megaupload.com that seems to work for me

08-13-2005, 04:16 PM
It does that to me too, but I found the solution, when the upload is almost done, it will go over the said MB's. When it starts going over them you have to watch it. Then when it says No Upload in Progress, scroll to the bottom immediately, for some reason, it will go to Page Cannot be Displayed after a certain amount of time. You have to keep a close eye on it. Looking forward to it, looks cool, sounds cool, is cool!

08-13-2005, 04:21 PM
when i download it it came up as a song in windows media..... so all i head was a scream and well thats it...

08-13-2005, 04:45 PM
Same for me.. just a scream and some laughter!
It shows up as Mp3-file, but even when I moved it to WMP no vid.

08-13-2005, 04:45 PM
i will work on this. . . grrrrr I hate when that happens

-[A.S] Fanie-
08-13-2005, 04:49 PM
Cause its wma. not wmv. :p:up:

08-13-2005, 05:00 PM
Okay there is something wrong with the graphics, but here goes!


Its moving faster then its susposed to be, I put it on Wave.

08-13-2005, 05:06 PM
:bulb: That was microscopic and all skippy, what happened?

08-13-2005, 05:07 PM
ok i DL it and all i saw was a really blurry thing that i couldn't make out...with no sound as well.... i think i could make out the track but nothing else... also was that green mist :)

08-13-2005, 05:08 PM
Im trying megaupload. So expect it to be slower with more detail and good sound! How long does it take to download a file on megaupload? And my file does not have mb's it has 1.77 KB.

08-13-2005, 05:29 PM
This is sooooo wrong, I try everywhere, and it doesnt work how come???!?!?!?! I try mega upload, and it takes a hour for it to upload??? Upload hut is the same way, rapidshare keeps bring me to a page cannot be displayed!?!?!?! WHATS WRONG!:cry: :cry: :cry:

08-13-2005, 05:42 PM
Don't you have patience?! Crappy things are instant, Good things are quick, but Great Things require patience, all of my videos took over 7 hours to get working, recording, editing, saving and uploading! Be patient, it's a virtue you know? I'm sure that if you wait, the quality will stun you. I like this park, and I don't want to come off hard, but you really need to quit complaining. Just give it a while, and you will be surprised how good it turns out, and people will probably like it alot too. Just do MegaUpload, it works.

08-13-2005, 05:50 PM
Does avi work for Megaupload, because my file was done by sony vegas, and its not mb

-[A.S] Fanie-
08-13-2005, 06:04 PM
When you have done your movie on vegas, you have to go to;

File > Render as then save it as a wmv. (512 kbs)

08-13-2005, 06:11 PM
You know the preview window, well it shows the video footage all blurry, how do i turn the blurry off?

08-13-2005, 06:31 PM
1.77Kb? Thats really small. Is it low quality and a small size? Did you mean to make it that small? How did you manage to get a video down to that file size?

08-13-2005, 09:11 PM
that video was terrible

08-13-2005, 09:43 PM
Why why do people post negative commets! argggggg! Look I got my video from my Doc/ Pics/RCT3 put it in put sound effects put it on wmv, and thats it! And i get a stinky video, Im working on it now.

08-13-2005, 09:55 PM
FINALLY what we all been waiting for, it works! And you can see in great detail, and sound! Commets will be well appreciated, Ill have an update to the park tommoro! Good night yall!


08-13-2005, 10:54 PM
Nice Video...but...my head.... i think i lost it....84 times lol
Not too scary... next time make the video at night

BTW where did you get that wallpiece.... i don't remember the guys name but i think hes in a horror movie... Jason from Friday the 13th?

But i see you worked hard... and for that i find that your ride will be a good lil' haunted ride....for the younin's

Now it's time to make some soil yourself High-speed, false teeth falling, clothes rippin' roller toasters :) (yeah i made it roller toaster instead of roller coaster....the coaster part got boring ;) )

08-13-2005, 10:58 PM
The sound effects were nice, but the music came in too late, and I hit my head alot. The building was really cool looking, that housed it, I really like the porch, but the ride needs music.

And ForbiddenDonut, I think it was Michael Myers from halloween.

08-13-2005, 11:02 PM
i didn't like it.:down: it wasn't very scary and it looks like you keep hitting your head on the ceiling.

08-13-2005, 11:13 PM
sox04champs, you don't have to be such a jerk about it, and rides can only get so scary in a video game. And the head bashing didn't bother me too much. But you don't have to be so blatant as to say you don't like it, saying such negative things aren't right, if you have sensible reasons, I'm sure he'd like to hear them.

08-13-2005, 11:13 PM
LOL call it house of pain... or the HOUSE OF THE FALLING ROOF

waiting in line you will hear:
"weeeeeeeee oww oww oww oww oww oww oww oww oww oww oww oww help oww oww kill oww me oww oww oww oww "thank you for riding" (slump over chair not moving) Operator: alright kid your turns over...... (pokes with stick) NEXT!!

-[A.S] Fanie-
08-13-2005, 11:16 PM

08-13-2005, 11:26 PM
Then all of a sudden you're next in line. :confused: Oh God!

Although the head smashing would add to the effect, you have blood dripping from the ceiling and all over the track and it splatters everytime the train goes by.

ForbiddenDonut, I'm laughing so hard I'm crying just picturing that :haha: :cry:
EBITUSA16, you most certainly did not make love to my mom, *looks at avatar*

08-13-2005, 11:28 PM



That was quite possibly the worst video I've ever seen. The ride. well, there's no build up.. we start on the chain. Then, we smack our foreheads and/or faces into various arches, ceilings, and walls.

At random intervals, we see the Coaster Cam window pop up and down.

The coaster track is being overrun by custom scenery at a couple points. Train derailment, anyone?

The end of the onride suddenly turns into some random, jerky camera movements.

The ride itself lasts until 52 seconds. Then, we get to listen to the Mortal Kombat soundtrack... until 1 minute, 40 seconds.

Accompanying the Mortal Kombat soundtrack is a black screen... with plain, white text. From the 53 second mark up until 1 minute 27 seconds, we stare at:

"Done by Plokoon11!
Only At Kooky Island!
A folk lure legion."

If anyone figure out what a 'folk lure legion' is... please let me know so this spastic eye twitch I've developed from staring at this screen for 34 seconds straight can finally stop.

At 1 minute, 27 seconds, we find out:

"I guess there were ghosts..."

and to:

"Go Check Out Kooky Park!
Your in for many scares"

So, is this Kooky Island, or Kooky Park? My head hurts.

Finally, the screen goes black and the music is cut abruptly at the most excruciating 1 minute and 40 second mark. It's over.

There's nothing "scary" about this. The ride wasn't much more than smacking your face against some mis-matched walls, occasionally busting through a wall, and the ill-placed cameo appearances by Freddy Kreuger and Jason from Friday the 13th.

Actually, the scariest part of this video is that it is still on my hard drive.

Plokoon, I'd reconsider your self-proclaimed title of "Dark Ride Master"

Hey Plokoon11, don't let ytivarg get you down, though the ride could use more work, but don't stop trying, just remember constructive critizism(spellcheck) is what we are giving you, we arn't putting you down.;)

A bit off topic, but I had to quote something you said here. :)
Hehe, I've thought of that name too. I was cheating around in RCT, and created a 10,000+ft drop vertical coaster and called it The Rollertoaster
When you ride this coaster, you're toast. :) Great minds think alike? Hehe

Anyway, constructive criticism is good. If you don't know your weak points, theres no hope to improve. I got this from my speech class I had taken this summer, so good ol' text book information here. Focus on what someone says, not how they say it. But, I do think that some posts here just seem down right rude. (not just this topic) I don't care what or how you say it, if there is no positive comments, then its not good criticism.

Criticism is both postitive comments to reinforce what a speaker did well and negative comments that point to potential improvements. And in short, when critiquing something, you should always begin with a positive statement and end with a postitive statement. And if you don't do that, at least have something good to say. Otherwise, the person's criticism isn't worth listening too.

All this infomation can be found in Mastering Public Speaking 5th Ed.

When I watched the video I assumed you wasn't trying to show us your video making ability but the dark ride itself. I personally can't create a video, but if I did, I would hope people would focus on my ride, instead of how good my video quality is.

So, yes, the video wasn't that great, but thats not what I focused on. I like your ride. I noticed one time where you had the track split so it looked like we would travel forward and then it whips up to the right or left. Thats pretty neat. I saw something similar to that in Escape from Atlantis. I liked that.

I understand that the scenery placement was hard in the compact area of the coaster, but because everything was so squished, you had to place scenery so low that you smashed your head through it. Its kind of hard to plan for that in such a small space, but maybe next time allow yourself a bigger area so you can avoid that. Alot of the times, the top of the screen was clipping through scenery so much, you couldn't see what was going on.

As for scenery, yeah it is mismatched, but I understand its very hard to get just the right scenery when theres really not much of what you want. So we do what we can, and I think thats what you did. In my opinion, it doesn't take from the ride if walls don't necessarily match up. I also like the outside of the house. You even have a chimney with smoke. :)

Sorry for the long post, but I though Plokoon might like some encouragement and some motivation after seeing some of these posts.

Actually Gibdo, i got the roller toaster idea a LONG time ago when i drew a park called safty land... (thou it was a death park that kills all guests :D)

Anyway the tip to making a sucessful theme park is.....

never give up...unless...you die in safty land :)

I think for a haunted house it is scarier than one that used to be at my home park... k so maybe it needs more scenery or more something I don't know I am not the dark ride master but I know it is better than the first things you ever posted here so sticking with it is paying off and with time it will just get better.

The only thing I can suggest is if something you see in a ride cam looks like it would hurt, try fixing it.

One of the things that irritated me when I was in school was an art teacher telling me that I was drawing something wrong so I never tell anyone how to do anything I just hope you keep it up because it is getting better and I am curious to see what you come up with after more time.

i disagree that you are the darkride master

For a twelve year old, it was pretty good!:)

Yes, you hit your head a couple of times (84) but overall, it was pretty good... not the best, but you can't make a scary ride on this game.:p I am only 14, so I feel some of his pain!

@ the idiots that think they are better:


Plakoon, you did a nice job, i want to see the rest of the park!:D
