Well, here we have an update, and not just any old update, A remaster almost! I've changed the path textures and replaced some current flat rides to try and make it look real as possible, and this is still in process as we go along here. So let's kick of with 1995! Summer 1995Following the unprecedented success of 1994 with the installation of 'Revelation', the park decides to relax on making roller coasters for a few years and instead concentrate on other things such as flat and dark rides, and even the park's next addition for 1996.
The latest new attraction for the park is 'TNT', a KMG Afterburner ride (once again, another Dutch ride for the park if you know the park's history!) which is unique to be built for a wild west theme. But that's not all for the park, another investment for the park (which had been planned since the park opened five years ago) was the installation of a new monorail train system, which many coaster enthusiasts will see has been done by Von Roll.
The main reason for replacing the trains was incase if the park was to get busy overtime, they would use the new trains. It also seems to have been a wise chose to do so as the original monorail trains had rather low capacity that would cause big queues, especially in the Summer seasons. It's hoped that these new trains will help a great deal as the park will become more popular with not only guests from other parts of the UK, but a new crowd from the United States and others, all coming to ride the 'Revelation' for it being the first of it's type built.
And even the story doesn't end there, veteran ride 'Tornado' has had new trains added from Vekoma to help cope with it's new found roughness among guests. Finally, visitors will have noticed something going on nearby in the car park area, so let's look at the photos from the start of the Summer season, before guests would be swarming all over the park...
Here is 'TNT'. Notice the surrounding area being half done, this was original part of a extension to the 'Rugged West' area, but with costs elsewhere. the plans have been shelved, but it is very likely this will be done at a later date.
Park favourite, 'Duststorm', seen here in action. Rumour also has it that it's new trains could be added later on, though when is another question.
And here are the new monorail trains. Each train has eight coaches on them, much more than five on the old trains. Notice the drop of 'Corral Falls' in the background there.
'Corral Town' has had a bit of a makeover too, the area now boasts a new path texture. Pity it still has a very bad 3D show though...
Here the Monorail passes by the land. TLNM can just be seen on the right of the picture.
Over in 'Thrill Sector', 'Tornado' has had it's new trains fitted, here are several of the ride's operators during a day off when Brian Morrison, park owner, allowed them to be the first to test the new trains.
The famous park shot of the ride's corkscrews. Here the trains pass by through the corkscrews.
On the last drop before the breakrun, notice how trees in the background have grown back.
Moving onwards, the park's new flagship ride's banked curve. In the background, the park has brought in tress from the North to help separate the two areas here.
The Monorail snakes it's way passed the area. It is rather clever that the ride's hill here helps separate the area here, much like with 'DS'. Though the tin shed as part of 'Lochty Mansion' can still be seen here, much to the annoyance of theme park theming lovers who have begged for it to be covered up in some way.
Even from the ground, the ride still look's menacing for first time guests to the park.
From a helicopter shot, the top of the ride is seen, with 'Flying Dutchman' in the background. For some Dutch coaster enthusiasts who have been to the place, they find it rather funny that the Scots have many Dutch additions to the park, some say it would fit well in Holland!
Here is the HUSS Pirate ship ride 'Sea Raider' in the Pirate area which now has been named 'Tortuga Bay', notice the extended Monorail station in the background to accommodate the new trains.
Here is an interesting shot of the queue area for FD, another ride that has been here since the park opened.
On the lifthill, the Vekoma cars are seen here.
Finally, a shot that was taken later on in the Summer when guests swap the park in their thousands. But oh yeah, that certain something going on near the car park...
A few trucks have arrived and a lot of clearance has been done here, if those who read the plans might have an idea where this is going...
So there we are! The next photos in the next update will all be on what is going on with this bit here near the car park, exciting times ahead! And please, give me ideas of what I can add to the park either ride or theming wise.
I've also considered the idea that I can exclusively give the park over to some users here so they can act out a "trip report" and such, though with lots of custom content on this park, I'm not so sure. But anyway, stay tune for the next update whenever it might be!
