Re: RCT3 Custom Track coaster. Showing how much RCT3 has moved forward.

I really like what you've done with this! Nice unique coaster! :)

Any chance you could tell me the set these smashed walls and castle walls are from please?

Re: BigAl's No Limits Coasters

This is probably my most favourite part of the ride. I thought it would be fun element to experience lying down on a flying coaster whilst going over an air-time hill. Does anyone know if any flying coasters have such an element? I don't think so as I believe Air is still the only B&M Flyer wit...

Re: RCT Quick Questions

Hey guys, can anyone suggest some good CS walls that look smashed or crumbling?

Also does anyone has the CTR Intamin Blitz by Techno Dude? I've been looking for a working download for AGES!

Re: Aesthetically pleasing coasters

Why the HELL have they painted Crystal Wing yellow and blue!?!

EDIT : Ignore that initial post, I see that it's an S&S coaster!

Re: The death of the (remaining) magic

I believe that's basically the point...barely anyone notices that it's been patched up with gaffa so the money's better going towards, like, getting the smoke machine working than replacing a panel which basically no guests will ever see because it's so dark...(I'm presuming you only noticed it whe...

The worse thing is that silver gaffer tap has been on the Hex vault since at least last year (maybe even before!).

Re: The death of the (remaining) magic

I'm not going to stop going to a park that I love and have a genuine passion for and have had man, many amazing times at. This topic was created as a way that I could get the frustrations out and hope for some small chance that it may get the TLC it deserves!

Re: The death of the (remaining) magic

Exactly Dan. I understand that the park don't have the cash to do everything but when it's left with a half rotten park guest satisfaction is going to go down and then visitor numbers drop off. It seems that the theme park industry is suffering this year with the combination of the bad weather and t...

Re: The death of the (remaining) magic

So let me get this right, you have judged my post on the name alone? That's a really grown up thing to do isn't it? ALso if you can't be bothered to read a topic then why bother posting in it in the first place? In regards to the 'magic' i only used that for want of a better word. I'm merely comment...

2012: Neglect, decay - demise?

It is with a strong sadness that I feel I have to type this but I can’t keep it in any longer. This season it seems that whatever remains of the ‘magic’, for want of a better word, is starting to seep away from the park. Sorry for the mega post that follows! I can appreciate what they have tried to ...

Like I said, with low expectations, hopefully I will come of pleasantly surprised!

I've never actually said it looks poor! I just don't have much enthusiasm for it! Sure it looks a decent speed and what-not I just don't think it fits in the area! That's obviously just me! :P Hey with me being negative about it, hopefully I will come off after riding thinking it's amazing! At least...

At least have something good to say about this project :P :D As you know Dan, I have lost a lot of enthusiasm for this project! And we all know I hate the interaction with Atlantica! :( However I agree it's a great addition to the park and I like the entrance feature and the tunnels/rock work they ...

Without sounding too negative, I really hope they are going to dirt wash or 'oldiefy' the red of the station as currently it looks like an american barn!

Re: Shocking Seaworld Incident

Well you're right that it comes from the manufacturers that you must be able to brave yourself in an upright position which she can do. Nowhere does it stipulate that in order to brace yourself you need to have hands though! I agree though that the park would be seen in a similarly negative light if...

Re: Shocking Seaworld Incident

As for in evacuation situations, they should just treat her as any other rider with a psychical disability. Wheelchair users aren't banned from coasters because they couldn't walk the lift stairs, it's the same principle... Exactly! They would just use whatever the procedure for that was if they fe...

Re: Shocking Seaworld Incident

Really?!? A sixth finger meant that they couldn't ride? That is just idiocy! I too am in full support of the lawsuit. The fact that she is still able to pull down the restraint for herself and hold on with her arm really makes the parks claims non-founded if you ask me!

She was in the queue for Kraken when she was told to leave as it was aginst the rules for her to ride as she couldn't pull done the ...
