'Message from LakeStone Resort-
Treetopolis will not open for another 6 months due to construction faults, our family coaster 'TreeTop Expedition' has been placed into an area of which it's theme cannot be fully expressed. It also has made it hard to make the theme fit with all rides in this area, however we are keeping the ride, and moving it to another part of Treetopolis. As you can see above, Pirate Bay is more or less complete, with some finishing touches to be carried out. Ye Old West has not been heavily themed at all. This is due to the area not being used for very long. Ye Old West is going to open with the park, unfinished and will be reformed when the major development occurs in four years time. We are, however, determined to make Diamondback Mine one of the best themed coasters of its size, with it being the shortest tracked ride in the park. Wild Run has unfortunately had its height restriction raised from 1.1M to a very strict 1.2M due to unexpected speeds and intensity. We can also give you some details on our next project...

Project Name: Pbvd11
Location:Pirate Bay
Height limit:1.4M
Manufacture: B&M'

That is all

A very nice start, however with the car park, I wouldn't have railings between every car, in reality, that'd be rather awkward to park, just have some path edges, it'd make more sense! Other than that it looks good!
