Well, hey! That's a great looking coaster, and a good song from a great band... Nice to see a 'sane' coaster that flows very nicely, has good scenery and terraforming, and looks fun to ride...

I usually build my parks with a kinda 'let's see where this goes' thing, too- makes it all the more interesting...

Yeah. In the past I have tended to go overboard with the coasters that I make.
They are usually so unrealistic.
Thannks for the nice comments. Hope this coaster leads me to a great park.

;) :up: ;)

Use the steelworx, and this will look pretty sweet.;)

Great layout! Looks like fun and not repetitive at all. I like how you incorporated that lake and the cobra roll above the path in last pic is also a nice element. It really seems to live up to its stats.

That first pic is great. :up: hope the rest of the park will be just as good.

It looks good, but it's not very realistic how it has powered launches on the slopes up to the big loops. You could have built them lower down so the train would make it through them.

The night shot is fabulous, as is most of the coaster, not being repepitive at all. You have a really good landscape-to-coaster design here.

I have to agree with Xophe, it doesn't look realistic with loops that go higher than the lift hill.

NOTE: Picture removed (I shouldn't post in someone else's thread)

maddock, that is one of the most unrealistic coasters i have ever seen.

I like it, but i agree about the loops being too much higher than the hills, and the colors are ugly and bland. The landscaping and scenery looks a little messy as well, but it's not bad. I'd give it an 8/10 overall.

Some nice comments. I agree with some of them. It's not as realistic as I had liked but I disagree about the landscape. Its a rollercoaster park, man made, it's never going to look entirely realistic.


If it's good enought for VODHIN then it's good enough for me!!


:D :D :D

Hey, I suck at scenery so I cheer you on Quasimodo! I hope you continue to show your progress of this park. It has great potential.

AceHawkX: Yes I understand what you mean (seeing from your previous parks, nice job by the way), but I disagree. It may look unrealistic but it doesn't feel so when you ride it. :p

I removed the picture because of above mention reason.

Heres the new addition, 'Bright Fire'.
It's also named after a Fleetwood Mac song.
I am still working on it though and the scenery and theming is a bit poor.
The buildings will eventually surround the ride and hopefully enclose some of it.

What you think?????

Hmmm... Bonfire of the Handymen... Too much fire (just my opinion ;) ) - especially next to the paths... A couple of 'hot spots' would be ok- perhaps from a destroyed factory? Looks kinda industrial: some brick work buildings half demolished for a burning factory?

Western walls pained white with black glass & trim looks very inner city. Some chain link fence in there would help, too... You could also use capped slide sections to make big pipes (Thanks Tidus243 for that one).

Too much fire. Maybe I'll rename the coaster and change the theming a bit. I just got a bit carried away and it was getting late.
I'll give it a go.

The first thing that came into my head was this looks like an airport. Then when I thought about it, yes it really looks like an airport, with the terminal. Observation tower might look like a control tower lol.

Cheers

I think you are right!
It does look a bit like an airport.
Maybe I'll go along with that and try re-theming!

;) :up: ;)

As said before a little too much fire. I don't really like the volcanoes either, but the buildings are pretty good and you know what?

Look at those screens. really look at them. Look at the real purposes of this thrilling coaster, the peeps. Can you see the vibrent expressions of joy on their faces? And isn't that what really matters? I speak for the peeps when i say thank you Quasi, thank you.

I know that you are all correct about the fire and scenery for this ride. It really does suck! In fact, the more I look at it, it sucks a lot!!!

LOL!!!

ANyway, the main purpose of the pics was to show the coaster. It does seem to be loved by the peeps and, you are correct AcehawkX, that's what matters!!

I really need to work on the theming though.

I never used the city building scenery before and I think I like it. Iv'e already (yes I know I change my parks quicker than the British weather!) started another park with the city building set.

I've initially called the park CITY SLICKERS. but have no name for the coaster yet.

Heres a few pics.

Nice buildings. They have a little Tokyo feel. There are some parks in Tokyo that are right next to big buildings.
Are those the park hotels?
