Re: Slammer: Staying or going?

It's unique experience and the fact it's the last one in the world make it great for Thorpe. It's not the last one though. Six Flags New England still have the one that was built before the Slammer that used to be at Astro World before it closed down. Take a look. But that doesn't mean it's any les...

Re: Disneyland: General Discussion 2012

Those animatronics are amazing! :shock: I really can't believe they're real! I thought they were projections or on some sort of screen, but I noticed the pieces of track that run under them and as Nightfall pointed out about them being 3D as the cars moved. This is just another ride that shows how f...

Don't know how long this has been playing, but upon exiting the park today, we heard the old Monorail theme playing once again. Edit: That was today, sorry. :P Jealous!

Re: Th13teen trimmed yet again?

My photo is terrible (it's just a fuzzy silhouette) so I won't be uploading it. :P But I agree that the new structure needs disguising. I though Th13teen's lift wasn't the most aesthetically pleasing thing in existence, so adding another ugly structure next to it didn't exactly look good. I'm sure t...

Re: Slammer: Staying or going?

I'd like to go on it at least once before it leaves. It looks fantastic when it's operating and I'd like to think that Thorpe Park will bear with it due to it being one of only two that were ever built. For that reason, even if Thorpe does want to get rid of it, I'd prefer it if they sold it to anot...

Re: Your Theme Park Job

I'd love to be in with theming and coming up with ride concepts, etc... I can't really think of a job that could be as satisfying as creating a fantasy world to entertain people and then just walking around the area once it's open and watching everyone running around having fun.

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: No Limits and Other Software Quick Questions

Does anyone know how to make custom track pieces for NoLimits? They aren't custom track pieces in the same sense as the RCT3 custom tracks, they're 3D covers that go over the existing tracks in the simulator. I'm looking for a Rocky Mountain Coasters track cover like these: http://i56.tinypic.com/2n...

Re: Thorpe Park 2015 Coaster

Thorpe could have a lot of fun with a woodie, even moreso with a hybrid as has been suggested, but I can't help but think they're a bit of an eye sore! Although I agree that the steel supported woodies don't look that good, I do like how NTG's track is a complete contrast with it's wooden supports....

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

The scenery looks great and the ride does some very nifty manoeuvres. My only concern is how much speed it looses in places. If you could fix the speed in certain areas by lowering the track then that would really help your ride. Good stuff, though! :)
