View Full Version : Sync Fireworks with Rollercoaster TRY IT!

I haven't been playing RCT3 for about a month, I have been out of town. Anyway, I thought maybe you would like to hear the basic idea to try to see if you can do it.

Place a lion show somewhere in your park; you can use a whale show or whatever, but you cannot put these underground, like a lion show. I didn't want to have the lion show visible in my park, because it didn't go with the rest of the park theming - but please provide a path to it, because Ride Inspector can see it whether it is hidden or not, and will complain incessantly that you need to hire a mechanic.

Build the coaster that you want to sync the fireworks to.

Create a show for the 'lion show' with the firework/laser/water elements placed in the coaster (instead of the lion show), and make the lion show the exact same length in time as the coaster takes to go all the way around.

Make the wait times the same on the lion attraction and the coaster, and hopefully, it will work.

Anyway that is the general theory. Let me know how it goes, if you decide to test it out.

I am still too busy to try it, but wanted to get it up on the forums in case it helps anyone.

Or you could do what me and jmainaz do but its a secrate of the pros and wouldnt work for an everyday park because its so inconvinient because you have to reset a ton of stuff. I'll have to try this out! Good work finding this out.
