Re: Summersdale Springs - Mankey's Park

Right guys, not so much of an update but more of a new insight. I just uploaded a video of the park to youtube which can be found here. http://youtu.be/-5OjAQYDbc4 I think it's good to show a video just to get a hint of the atmosphere that surrounds it. This also contains POV's of both of the coaste...

Time for an update! Been aloof recently due to uni work and whatnot, but knuckled down and had some time.

Re: Parc Asterix 2012: "Oz'Iris" B&M Invert!

Looks like another park on the "to visit" list now. This ride looks amazing, before this park only had 2 things worth going for, their woodie and their mad house, but this looks stunning!

Re: Summersdale Springs - Mankey's Park

Right! Little update guys! :D "Orbit", the B&M Mega coaster is now complete! :D Name was chosen because the ride repeatedly circles the car park (as long as it stays open :P haha) The entrance has been updated, and tiny changes have been added to the car park (nothing worth noting) htt...

Haha! :lol: Well she did originally run sims on my mac, but the thing is I needed that for work (Has logic and whatnot on it so I can produce things for uni) so I let her install it on the new comp! :P

She seems happy, so that makes me happy! :P Trying to get her into RCT now...

Thanks for the tips guys! Will come in handy! :D Next up will be the station for the B&M Mega, undecided on what to call it though! :? The only issue is actually getting on the PC nowadays, been so busy with uni work, and whenever we're at home Steph (the girlfriend) likes to play sims for stupi...

Re: Summersdale Springs - Mankey's Park

Thank you! I'm really enjoying making this so far! The only issue is, because I've been so slow getting back into RCT3 I don't know which mods and custom scenery things to go for, there are a number of things I would like. I just read captains realistic rapids tutorial and that looks AMAZING! But no...

Those who have me on facebook will know I've started making a theme park from scratch! I recently bought myself a hench new pc so i can actually play games like this properly without having to get frustrated at frame rate. :lol: (I also play BF3 on PC if anyone else here does.)

Re: MINI MEET: Thorpe Park: 17/18 March 2012

Seeing as my AP is still in date at this point, count me in for the whole weekend! Has anyone got a space free in a room? I'm not 100% sure if can come yet, but I know I want to. All depends if i can get out of a competition i've not yet agreed to!

Re: Europa-Park 2012: "Wodan" GCI Woodie

This is looking to be amazing!!! Tbh I expect no less from EP! Having never actually ridden a wooden coaster, I can see this is most likely to be my first! Will be odd seeing this overshadowing a park i know all too well!

Re: 2012 ticket price is £42

It's silly though, why not drop it to £5? People are much more likely to hand over a £5 note rather than have to faff about looking for an extra pound surely? Meh, I don't know! I'd be happy to pay £21 for a day using a bogof voucher. Seeing as i wont have an AP this year, I will have to! My housema...

Re: 2012 ticket price is £42

Forgive me for my ignorance on this matter at the moment, but do we know what the car parking charges this year will be? If it's still £6 thats when it would get disgusting though. Do they really need to charge for the car park when the entrance is this high? :|

Re: 2012 ticket price is £42

Looks expensive from the cover but when you think about it, how many people actually pay for full priced entry? Not many I would wager! At least this seems somewhat more reasonable than legoland jumping up to that price! At least at towers there is enough to do in a day! My Uni did a summer ball las...
