I like your area Matt, but I do question whether that is a family coaster. The launch straight onto the bunnyhop makes it seem like it could a little bit too intense. I really like the themeing and stuff too.
I chopped and changed the start of the ride to allow for the "large" drop, and ended up changing a few bits after building the whole course, for example added separate load / offload stations and a couple of extra block breaks.
The net effect, was somehow the track didn't line up, so the little bunny hop was added to compensate, rather than altering all track and theming back to the brake run....
Also, this will sound like I'm making an excuse, but on RCT3 it looked like the coaster was going at a mediocre pace, and I had no idea it was so fast as such, until the pov was recorded.
The ratings are high due to the speed I guess + the random bunny hop.
There are a couple of tweaks I'd make in hindsight, but tbh I don't have the time to make it 100% realistic, and also I don't have the patience to record another POV :P
