Hey all,

Hey all!
Thought we'd share some more info on our park along with some screenshots. We've been working day in, day out since June (yes I know, none of us have better things to do than play minecraft and sleep) on this resort! We're running the park on a vanilla version of the game- no fancy plugins or mod magic, just a flurry of command blocks! We've taken inspiration from a lot of parks- it's got the scale of Alton, the terrain of Liseberg, the charm of Europa and even a few oddities from Blackpool. It's much bigger than any of our previous builds, and we're trying to cram in as many detailed shows and rides as we can manage. Our current plan is to put it up for download mid-july, and we'll continue updating the park with events and new attractions afterwards. We'll try to update this topic often, as to keep you guys updated.

Jungle Run
This was one of the first things we built at the park! Whilst it’s not quite as detailed and extreme as some of our newer attractions, it’s still a great family ride, which happens to be one of the few rides we all worked on together. Cory picked the spot, George did the layout and I set up the technical bits.

Not the most exciting update, but a few things have been done!
Firstly, the car parks are more or less done. All that needs doing now are some overflow fields, some foliage and road links to the surrounding villages.
Image

Next up is our topspin, Ninja. We aren't the best at building flat rides, but any park would feel empty without them. Here's George overseeing construction.
Image

And finally, work has begun on our unnamed hyper coaster. The station is a bit hectic right now, so all we can show off right now is the drop.
Image
We'll have a bigger update on Wednesday, showcasing our functioning drop tower, Ritual Fall.
Thanks!

Ritual Fall
My personal favourite ride! Inspired by The Welcoming, this is a fully functioning drop tower with a theatrical-style queue. I don’t want to brag about it too much, so I’ll leave you with the POV.

Dragon Dash
Thrilling yet serene, our intamin launch coaster weaves its way through the Sacred Gardens at tremendous speed. This really is George’s baby- he’ll often hang out and tamper with it if there’s not a lot that needs doing on the rest of the Resort. But what can I say, it’s brilliantly detailed and has a nice charm to it.

It's been a while since the last update as we've all been busy with life and the sunny weather may have distracted us a bit. Recently quite a bit has changed, so we thought we'd show it off!
First up, over at the resort, work has begun on the high-ropes. Guests will climb up the lighthouse (cladded in wood to blend in with the area) before traversing the usual go-ape style elements, finishing with a large zip wire over the waterpark. 
Image

One of our more thrilling rides is Cliffhanger "Super Swing". It's cheesy name comes down to the fact that the park decided to quickly install one after seeing how popular they were.
Image

Delving back into Sacred Gardens, this time for Diddy Dragon, the parks powered coaster. With it's exciting interactions with Spirits River and Dragon Dash, this family ride is not to be missed.
Image

Another thing we've added to Sacred Gardens is this teacups ride! If you look to the side you can see construction borders for next years big ride too.
Image

Now for something a little different but still pretty exciting... for our desert area we decided that the ground should be all sandy. Easy job with some plugins right? No, we decided to do it all by hand. As you can see it's not quite finished yet! Once all the sand has been put down we'll start to build rides and show buildings.
Image

And the final thing we've got to show today, and that's Warp Speed, a shuttle loop coaster. It's incredibly dated, but that helps add to the charm of the park and cheesiness of the area.
Image

And that's it for now! Within the next few weeks we'll hopefully put out a video of Nosferatu, our suspended swinging coaster that was recently finished off.
