Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm

Really great photo update Dan! :) I really didn't expect this ride to be quite that tall, it's quite obvious that this thing is really going to dominate and mainly be about the intimidation of the massive drop and zero-G roll. It should also add a completely different dimension to the ride that lack...

Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm

A nice overview of the trackwork so far from Thorpe Nerd Live :) http://live.thorpenerd.com/coverage/1317912456.jpg A few more on their live feed, posted above. Looking nice so far, not much to say about a break run other than just the excitment that it builds up. And look at all that track lined up...

Re: Steve Jobs passes away

Thank you Steve, without your products I am happy to say that my love of Music and Photography would probably not be nearly as strong as it is today without my iPod and iMac.

He will be missed.

Re: 2012: Nemesis - What Lies Beneath... Part 2

I can honestly say that in the past 24 hours my excitement for this attraction has probably tripled. Wow it's looking good. If this continues in the quality and design of the promotional material so far then it will probably be mind blowing in terms of creativity and atmosphere, which is what has re...

Re: TTF's RCT3 Competition - SKIP TO PAGE 4

Thought I'd just post a little teaser to show my progress. It's far from finished at the moment and this dark ride is much more complex than I first thought it would be. Que the cliche phrase:

Re: Forza Italia - Roma to Verona

A great set of reviews Benzin, I really enjoyed reading them! Makes me want to visit Mirbilandia even more now to go on Katun and iSpeed which really seem like fantastic rides. I must agree with your overall Gardaland review, it seems you managed to achieve lots more than I did in a day, and I didn'...

Re: BG Williamsburg 2012: "Verbolten" multi-launch Zierer

I found these pictures over at BGWFans . From the look of it they're currently laying the foundations for what I assume is the "Event Building" http://bgwfans.com/wp-content/gallery/verbolten-september-23rd/img_20110923_113908.jpg http://bgwfans.com/wp-content/gallery/verbolten-september-2...

Your Town: A journey in photos!

Great topic this! I'll take a few around St. Albans seeing how pretty people seem to think it is. Interested to see what everyone else does.

Re: Lakeside Theme Park - Season 2 now open!

I'm really liking the latest update, Miner Town looks really good! It's so nice and intergrated together that it looks pretty natural. Great work A5H! Looking forward to the next update.

Re: Armageddon (latest RCT3 coaster project)

Looking good so far DLD! Though that cobra roll does look a bit funny, I'd suggest using the large half loops going outward first and then using the large corkscrews instead of the small ones. If that doesn't make sense then heres a picture kind of showing what I mean: http://i633.photobucket.com/al...

Raptor really is a stunning ride, hope you enjoy and I'd be interested to know what your thoughts on it are :) In other news, it looks like that after 3 years of wanting to go, I'm probably going to t...

Re: Progressive musical discussion topic

Pretty much sums up my exact thoughts on the matter Blaze. I've been highly anticipating this release too and every some they release my hopes just keep getting lower and lower. Paradise itself is an okay-ish song but nothing, well, good. I've listened to it a few times today and just can't really g...

Re: TTF's RCT3 Competition - SKIP TO PAGE 4

Might as well do a little update for y'all. So far I've pretty much finished my coaster, an X-car CTR which I've been playing about with recently and am very satisfied with the layout. Just need to add the station and queue line and it'll be done. The rest of the park is a different story... Looking...

I've been looking around for those a while now. :) Thanks guys! And Jonny, what happened to your epic park? Well, that projec...

Re: 2012: New Attractions

Seeing this now does make the ride a bit more interesting. Hopefully, if they theme the lifts to some sort of pre show and post shows then I can imagine it being much more effective compared to a room which everyone stands in. If it is themed to travelling down to excavate something then it really s...
