Here's a nice Junior Coaster for the Big Boys. This coaster has a themed Station House built with Adventure Walls and Iceatcs' Timberframe Building Set v1. The track is long and narrow and has elements from Pumper's SteelWorx custom supports and Klinn's Frameworks and Arches set.

Oh, cool! Thanks, Vortexian! Nice job on the video- at first I thought the music was a bit slow, but now that the tune is stuck in my head :bulb: (thank you very much :D ) I think it works perfectly.

you are a bit right with the music. It sounded better when I played it as station music. But normally I design my coasters with the music I put in the video. Glad that you liked it after all:D

EDIT: and feel free to add the link to this video in your first post or any other post about this coaster

Hey! Thanks for the kind complements! Saving scenery with the coaster is such an important improvement with Soaked (and Wild), and I think the one thing that make a coaster real is the ugly chain-link fence, believe it or not... There's something about it that just says 'it's done'.

There is a spot halfway through the ride where the fence dips in real close to the second lift hill... I had intended on making a nice food court there with an overlook of the track. That building turned into the Swiss lodge I made in this thread (http://www.ataricommunity.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=499828).

Eventually I will make the little food court I intended for that area and release it here...

Dang... I still got that music stuck in my head... anyway- thatks for the compliments **black-alien** and aoshi :D I do try to make coasters that are fun. I've made big monsters like "Alice In Space" but I like the smaller, more family oriented rides look and run better. It also give you time to enjoy the ride.

I did make a fantastic little junior coaster when I was testing the beta of Wild, with a really nice layout and lots of western scenery around the track, but I'm back to just plain Soaked and the track isn't compatible (there's a new element in the Wild version, as someone else has already discovered). Perhaps when I get Wild, I'll redo the track and release that one two.

for now, I think it's time to make a nice steeple chase...
