Thanks guys :D . Funny you say that Nightfall, I was recently thinking about the abundance of medieval themes, but luckily as you say they're all pretty different so high five. Anyway, time for big update time. :yes:
Alyeska Theme Park and Resort is proud to announce the completion of its newest area, Camelot. This heavily themed area takes guests back in time to the middle ages, with an immersive castle village full of shops and eateries as well as rides for all the family. Here is an aerial shot of the entire area:
As well as the huge B&M, Gauntlet, a Gerstlauer Bobsled named The Woodcutter has been built for all of the family to enjoy. The park called in Hubert Gerstlauer himself after the park's own failed attempt
to design their own.
The coaster's station is found inside the village church, after the queueline works its way around the sleepy graveyard and past an old castle:
The trains depart and are slowly taken over a bridge into the old lumber mill, where they witness the mechanical saws cutting wood. This slow section allows more vehicles to be blocked onto the track, improving throughput:
When leaving the mill, the cars are sent to retrieve more wood, so ascend the lift hill into the trees. Upon reaching the top, cars are sent into a long curving drop at speed and then back up to a set of black brakes. They then swoop down the other direction and into a rising helix around an old watchtower, before coming out of the spiral into some more block brakes.
After the brakes, cars are quickly thrown into trick-track around the castle's old stone towers, then swung around a curving drop into a couple of bunny hops that Hubert Gerstlauer insisted were incorporated into the ride:
The cars are then swung out over the lake and through a vine-covered tunnel under the second bunny hop, before arriving at another set of block brakes:
The cars then meander along the ground before a final curved drop under the initial bridge then curve upwards into the final brake run, then head into the calm interior of the church where riders exit the ride:
The castle town has a number of shops, stalls and places to eat, as well as a ferris wheel overlooking the river. A riverboat transport is also situated here to transport guests to the rest of the park:
The arched vaults of the town hide the station for the park's steam train, another way for guests to travel around the park. Above the station are toilets in a themed cottage and a walkway around the town's old stone walls:
Finally, a teacups ride and a riverside walk have been provided for the young and old members of the family:
The park hopes to open soon, and always welcomes feedback from the public.
Thanks to Nightfall for help with CTRs and Diogoj42 for inspiration from Skitzo Squirrel for supports. Also, sorry if this post is too picture heavy, some can always be removed from the end if necessary.
