Really? Hmmm I didn't know that you could set up Corkscrews like that. Thanks.

It's some incredible use of diagonals! :D

If you check out the overall map in the previous update, it may give you an idea how it is done. Just use a diagonal lift, and the rest sort of falls into place! :lol:

Ugh... I made one like this just a few days before D:

Oh well, yours looks great, I like the supportwork. The rest of the park is fab, too!

Also guys, when I did it I used a B&M CTR [can't remember who made it], because it has diagonal corkscrews.

To make the Corkscrew, I have a diagnal bend straight out of the station, does it's stuff, curves round, and when it reaches the point where the corkscrews I put two large corkscrews next to one another.

Although my layout is slightly different, you could probably get the idea if you look at Imagineer Johns rec. link

hopefully this will help you :D

---- Post Info Added ----

Update 3: The fairground.

So after an exciting ride on the Corkscrew, i'm heading over the bridge to get to the funfair.

Image

The bridge providing excellent views of the Mountain, also a "deserted" island, which is also adding some interesting theming to the park.

At the exit of the bridge, I must admit the view isn't fantastic, but it is a funfair!

Image

Image

A small park owned childrens coaster, so the third park owned coaster for the park. This ride is called Forest flyer, a very fun little kids coaster. Near miss's with the tree branches and leaves.

Image

Image

A problem I see with the forest flyer is that I can imagine it'll require a lot of gardening work or will risk getting overgrown very quickly... But currently it's looking good!

More funfair shots

Image

Image

Now as i'm heading to what I thought was the parks main entrance a very nice shop greets me. If the park expands on this sort of construction when they get rid of the funfair, I can imagine a very amazing looking Village for the park!

Image

The monorail station... not as good as the other station... But it is looking OK... Could do with a bit more work.

Image

The mossy wood building is the maintenance shed... at least they bothered at an attempt to disguise it! :lol:

Image

Nerd shot of the maintenance building!

Image

Monorail heading over the shop.

Image

more shop!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Heading back into the funfair, for a bite to eat! Many stands provided by the funfair's owning company.

Image

The wild mouse Coaster. This Coaster is owned by "Forever Amusements" so it will be gone when the contract ends... Fun little ride anyway!

Image

Shot of the breathtaking terrain!

Image

As I was heading back to the main park for a couple more rides on Corkscrew and Runaround I noticed a hidden promenade! Heading there now!

Image

Continued soon!

That hidden promenade looks great! Very nice building work. The fair is also really well done, particularly with all the stalls etc. The wild mouse looks mental though, the speed at the bottom of the hairpins must be ridiculous! :D

This is the last of the "touring" Updates!

So after this Update I would have pretty much shown you all the parts of the park built so far and can concentrate on more interesting construction Updates and begin to do what I said i'll do on the 10 year plan!

Hopefully you'll enjoy all the pictures! :D

_______________________

UPDATE 4, The Secret Promenade and Construction.

Image


heading over to view this Promenade or to see if there is a possible entrance to the area I ventured back into the mainstreet, and behold an alleyway that looks very promising.

Image

The area provides fantastic views of the river and the park. Brilliant extra theming and little hideaways.

Image

Image

Quite a nice angle of the bridge.

Image

heading back down the dock... I'll say dock because of the boats...

Image

Image

Image

From the Dock you can view some of the construction work happening on the restaurant.

Image

one exit/entrance to the Promenade.

Image

going back to the parks other entrance to view the construction work... A tempary facade has covered up most of the work but interesting none the less.

Image

Image

As I leave the park for the first time a lovely shot from the exit of the monorail.

Image

Thanks for reading!

Looking rather nice, I must say. Your latest update in particular is Disneyesque in that the standard of theming and landscaping is just so high that it "makes" the park, and the rides are just an added bonus.

Bring on the 10 year plan. :D

Update 12/05/11, The Village... construction.

It's been a while since I went to the park last. And theres been good progress on the extension of the main street.

Image

it's obviously still under construction but it's looking pretty good.

The water mill.

Image
.it looks like a water feature will be added, most likely a small pond. but it's obviously dry during construction.

A look down at the construction.

Image

You can see that the tarmac on the road is currently being added, you can also see a large cavern, I wonder what it's for?

Image

There has been some trees been added/grown around the general site of the year 2 development area,

They look like fast growing Pine. I can imagine them to be quite tall by Year 2... I wonder why.

Image

Site of general construction from Runaround.

Image


hope you enjoyed this update!

Fredward!

Nice! Are there going to be any rides in "The Village" though? A part-dark car ride travelling through an area of the village would be nice.

On that dock, you could put in imagineer john's battle galleons as the theming already suits it very well. Just a thought.
