  1. Great job, I love the custom landscaping and the building construction! The way the rides interact with the ground and the layout. Keep it up, I'm gonna keep my eye on this one!
  2. I'm flattered, but I wouldn't put myself at the top, the stuff that CD5, Steffen, and AEB is much better than what I can come up with. They build much better buildings than I can, though I'm getting steadily better
  3. Again, apologies for the delay in updates! College work got a bit overbearing so I couldn't really build or concentrate on the park. School just let out for the summer so my newfound free time can be used to update! Illum Hills: Fall Year 7 Park Owner: Warner Entertainment Park Manager: Lee Yardston Park Hours: Sun:12pm-11pm Mon:Closed Tues:Closed Wed:Closed Thurs:Closed Fri:10am-11pm Sat:10am-12am Ticket Prices: Adult General Admission: $30.00 Child General Admission:$15.00 Spectator:$10.00 Under 3: Free Season Pass: $55.00 Attractions: Eagle's Nest Pioneer Super Swinger Wonder Wheel Galaxy Grand Carousel Double Take Dino Run Scramble Inferno Rotor Plunge Games Square Rampage Rodeo Bulls High Noon at Garis Gulch Mine Mountain Madness Black Hole Jolly Roger NEW FOR YEAR 7: Tsunami Splash Spin Cycle Illum Theater Fright Nights Park News Warner has set out to make Fall Fest a much more in depth and scarier event. This year they decorated a majority of the park, making it much more ominous and dark during the Fall Months.They also gave it a new name: Fright Nights! The walkway behind the Wonder Wheel became a terrifying walkthrough and props all around the park had surprises hiding behind them all the time. Still no announcement by management for next years attraction, but it looks to be like a scenery laden rapids ride behind the Hills Grill. Rumors of a smaller attraction such as a bumper cars are also circulating as well. On the corporate end of things, Warner made an offer on Marriott's Great America in Illinois but was beaten out by Six Flags. Warner seems to be interested in possibly acquiring Six Flags in the near future but probably wants to get a bit more experienced first. Something tells me a large expansion is on the horizon so they can get the experience of running a large theme park like many of the parks in the Six Flags chain. Here is the photo update from the Fall! The Entry Plaza decorated and declaring the new title: Fright Nights! American Classics has expanded and looks much more appealing after its overhaul. A new Gift Shop has also been built next to it Double Take's graveyard Everything had webbing on it, Pioneer's station looked great with it The walkway behind the wonder wheel was on a whole new level from David Illum's days. The Grand Carousel also looked cool with its lighting and webs Even scenery was put in front of the Super Swinger Work is progressing on the new Rapids Ride with the station taking shape, the route dug out, and scenery being put in. More to come soon! [/u]
  4. It seems that everyone forgot that Great Adventure has FLASHPASS. It's great that CP has a wonderful atmosphere and flats, but you won't be able to enjoy them that much if you're waiting in 2 hour lines all day. At GAdv you can get a Gold Flashpass, almost never stand in line, and get multiple rides in on El Toro, Nitro, Kingda Ka, Batman, Bizarro, and Superman, with a few others thrown into the mix. If you ask many people who have used the Flashpass system at the park, it is well worth going to Great Adventure.
  5. Hey everyone, sorry I haven't gotten the fall update done yet, but computer troubles have slowed me down! I do have a preview of the next update to show you what to expect! Enjoy!
  6. Any ideas on what's coming next? And the Fall update is coming soon, just a few more things need to be put into place!
  7. Wow, I didn't know people held this park in such high regard. Well I'll be working on it a lot now so expect the Fall update by the end of this week!
  8. Sorry for the 3 month delay, but my laptop crashed and I went through a lot of drama to get it fixed and get all of my data back! The good news is that this park was saved! As for kitkat, just start small and then try bigger and bigger buildings and scenery! Finally, a new update! Illum Hills: Summer Year 7 Park Owner: Warner Entertainment Park Manager: Lee Yardston Park Hours (Summer): Sun:12pm-11pm Mon:10am-10pm Tues:10am-10pm Wed:10am-10pm Thurs:10am-10pm Fri:10am-11pm Sat:10am-12am Ticket Prices: Adult General Admission: $30.00 Child General Admission:$15.00 Spectator:$10.00 Under 3: Free Season Pass: $55.00 Attractions: Eagle's Nest Pioneer Super Swinger Wonder Wheel Galaxy Grand Carousel Double Take Dino Run Scramble Inferno Rotor Plunge Games Square Horror at the Hills Rampage Rodeo Bulls High Noon at Garis Gulch Mine Mountain Madness Black Hole Jolly Roger NEW FOR YEAR 7: Tsunami Splash Spin Cycle Illum Theater Park News The park had a busy Summer season, with Tsunami Splash finally relieving the pressure on Lumberjack Falls, as well as bringing more people to the back part of the park. One of the main complaints however, was that Tsunami Splash was the only thing to do back in that corner of the park! Warner has assured us that more will come! Park improvements have continued as Jolly Roger had the area surrounding it redone with rocks and plantings, American Classics is undergoing a major renovation and is expected to shrink in size as another store is added next door. The whole backstage area of the park has also gone through a huge change with new offices and employee check in buildings now built instead of the smaller trailers and buildings the park was operating out of. Inferno had a problem the other day when a wheel on the first car came loose on the first drop and damaged the first two cars of the train, nobody was hurt on the train as it saddled between the first drop and the first loop. The park found that it was overlooked by a maintenance worker and the proper action was taken. Warner is overall impressed with how well the park is faring and is committed to making it the premier destination in the region. Rumblings have come out that Warner Entertainment may be making a play for the Six Flags Chain of parks as many of their executives have been visiting their properties more and more since they licensed use of the Looney Tunes to the parks. As for future expansion of the park, lots of flags and other heavy construction equipment have been spotted behind the Hills Grill by Tsunami splash, but nobody sure what it is yet, but some are speculating that it may a suspended coaster from Arrow! Here is the photo update from the Summer! The new management buildings for the park Inferno's Damaged A Train sits on a flatbed, waiting for repair backstage. Inferno was re-inspected and certified operable by the state in July so the B train took over while the A train got repaired Jolly Roger with it's newly redone and better landscaped area Lots of framing and building taking place by the front gate Lots of flags have popped up in the back of the park Heavy construction equipment also is present Could it be a new coaster, or something else? On cold summer nights, Tsunami Splash didn't see many lines But the park still looks awesome at night!
  9. Thanks everyone, I'm glad to be back and building again! ^What kind of tips are you looking for? New update! (12/18/08) Illum Hills: Spring Year 7 Park Owner: Warner Entertainment Park Manager: Lee Yardston Park Hours (Spring): Sun:10am-9pm Mon: Closed Tues:Closed Wed:Closed Thurs:Closed Fri:4pm-10pm Sat:10am-10pm Ticket Prices: Adult General Admission: $30.00 Child General Admission:$15.00 Spectator:$10.00 Under 3: Free Season Pass: $55.00 Attractions: Eagle's Nest Pioneer Super Swinger Wonder Wheel Galaxy Grand Carousel Double Take Dino Run Scramble Inferno Rotor Plunge Games Square Horror at the Hills Rampage Rodeo Bulls High Noon at Garis Gulch Mine Mountain Madness Black Hole Jolly Roger NEW FOR YEAR 7: Tsunami Splash Spin Cycle Illum Theater Park News The removal of Double Take was a hard loss to take for Mr. Illum, along with the fire at the Haunted House, but he was happy to see the improvements throughout the park. There's much more staff, lockers around the park, improved lighting, and rides running more reliably. He's very happy with how the park has progressed under Warner ownership. The park this year added a desperately needed show venue, named after its former owner and located on Double Take's old Station site. Rumors of an Ultratwister were put to rest when the theater was announced and TOGO denied being involved with the park. The old Horror Hollow section which had closed last season due to the fire, has been reopened with a new restaurant and the new Tsunami Splash, the long-awaited new water ride that soaks riders to the bone! Many new paths were built around the area, so it seems that more and more expansion is coming in the next few seasons! A new Round-up ride was also added to the park as well! As for the rumor side of things, Ron Toomer has again been spotted in the park behind the Ferris Wheel. He also took an enjoyable ride on Black Hole, could Arrow be planning their own version of a stand-up? Sources are saying that the park will be getting a suspended coaster next season, but others are saying a mega-looper would draw more people. HUSS executives were also seen in the park over by Eagle's Nest and Plunge, maybe a new flat ride will come as well. On to everyone's favorite part, the photos from the Spring! A new season dawns on the park! The new theater is ready for its first guests The furnished interior. A new pathway beside the theater, opening up some new photo ops. This new pathway was built on the old track layout of Double Take, it eliminates an old dead end in the park The park's new restaurant, which serves pizza and burgers! A look inside Tsunami Splash is the big new attraction of the year An overview of the new section Spin Cycle, the new Round-up ride located in Galaxy's old queue area. The skyline feels bare without Double Take That's all for now, check back for more soon!
  10. Big bump and mini-update! I've recently completed my fall semester at college and had some free time, so I dove back into my old park. I'll try to keep this updated as much as possible and want to get this back on track! I'm skipping the fall update for year 6 and just highlighting some major developments for Season 7! Park News: With Warner ready to take on its first season of operations, we saw them make their first big impression on the park with the sale and removal of Double Take from the park. The ride had been plagued with operational problems since its first season and the decision was made to sell it and remove it to make way for further expansion. Warner has announced that it is planning for some exciting new additions to the park next season. They have unveiled concept art for a new theater to be built in the park next season, but its exact location in the park is a mystery. This has been the only confirmed addition, but Warner says there is more to come! People are speculating that the park will finally add a new water ride for the hot summer months while others are thinking that a new, unique coaster is coming to the park! Stay tuned for more details! Here is a photo from Double Take's disassembly in Fall of Season 6: And here is some sketches of the new theater: Enjoy and glad to be back!
  11. It is a short ride by its looks, but it's going to pack much more of a punch than any of the Superman clones since after the pretzel loop it runs through two more inversions as opposed to slow boring turns. I agree that it looks like it will be fun, but it will be dependent upon the splash effect and theming to give it that WOW factor despite its short length.
  12. Hey everyone! I hate to say this, but due to a lack of time, creativity, and interest, I will not be continuing on with Illum Hills. Lately I have been really busy with other activities and haven't been able to really update the park. That being said, in order for it to continue, I'd have to put it on hiatus and probably forget about it. I loved doing this park and I thank everyone who followed it, but I want to move on to a new RCT3 project that isn't bound to a set storyline sometime this year. So keep a lookout for when I make it and I'll announce who is going to be carrying on Illum Hills. After that, I'll contemplate releasing a download of the park up to this point. Thanks for everything!
  13. ^Yeah I wish there was a trainer like in RCT2 where I could just add and remove peeps easily
  14. Thanks for all of your supportive comments! Illum Hills: Summer Year 6 Park Owner: Warner Entertainment Park Manager: Lee Yardston Park Hours: Sun:12pm-11pm Mon:10am-10pm Tues:10am-10pm Wed:10am-10pm Thurs:10am-10pm Fri:10am-11pm Sat:10am-12am Ticket Prices: Adult General Admission: $25.00 Child General Admission:$15.00 Spectator:$10.00 Under 3: Free Season Pass: $55.00 Attractions: Eagle's Nest Pioneer Super Swinger Wonder Wheel Galaxy Grand Carousel Double Take* Dino Run Scramble Inferno Rotor Plunge Games Square Rampage Rodeo Bulls High Noon at Garis Gulch Mine Mountain Madness NEW FOR YEAR 6: Black Hole Jolly Roger *Closed Until Further Notice Park News Even more bad luck befell Mr. Illum after the haunted house fell to fire at the start of the summer. Only two weeks after he suffered a heart attack and is still hospitalized. Costly medical bills started piling up and Mr. Illum was forced to sell his interest in the park to Warner Entertainment in order to pay them off. The actual figure was not disclosed, but Warner wishes him a speedy recovery and he is always welcome at the park and to give his input on the future direction of the park. Warner has already hinted at a big expansion of the park for the next season, but many people are speculating that it won't be a coaster since they just got Black Hole. Considering that the park lost its Haunted House, could a new one be in the works? The old area has been shut off from the public leaving a lot of open land for the future. Double Take has remained closed and staff say its may never reopen, but with the loss of the Haunted House, they may try to save it to compensate for the loss. Here is the photo update from the Summer! Warner's influence is already being seen in the park Horror Hollow is blocked off to the public Nothing is left The covering to Double Take's station is gone, is this the beginning of the end? A long heatwave made lines very long for Lumberjack Falls All quiet at Inferno and Mine Mountain Madness The park skyline from afar
  15. Not exactly. Illum is at fault for putting up a temporary structure and then making it permanent with no fire control Westworth, VA is also responsible for allowing such a structure to go wtihout regulation VA is at fault for lax fire standards Warner is at fault for not upgrading the facility. They will make something better though
  16. Back from the dead! I've been settling back in at school and I finally found some time to update. Enjoy! Thanks for the comments! Illum Hills: Spring Year 6 Park Owner: David Illum and Family Park Manager: Lee Yardston Park Partner: Warner Entertainment Park Hours (Spring): Sun:10am-9pm Mon: Closed Tues:Closed Wed:Closed Thurs:Closed Fri:4pm-10pm Sat:10am-10pm Ticket Prices: Adult General Admission: $25.00 Child General Admission:$15.00 Spectator:$10.00 Under 3: Free Season Pass: $55.00 Attractions: Eagle's Nest Pioneer Super Swinger Wonder Wheel Galaxy Grand Carousel Double Take Dino Run Scramble Inferno Rotor Plunge Games Square Horror at the Hills Rampage Rodeo Bulls High Noon at Garis Gulch Mine Mountain Madness NEW FOR YEAR 6: Black Hole Jolly Roger Park News Black Hole is the park's largest addition to date! The steel giant with its graceful curves and innovative Stand-Up position have brought the park into the modern amusment age. Many people are intrigued at the concept of standing on a roller coaster, and others are just plain terrified. "We've taken what a roller coaster can do to the next level." said Lee Yardston, the Park's General Manager. Also new this year is a swinging pirate ship named the Jolly Roger. It was placed right by the park entrance and the carousel was moved to Double Take's viewing area. Double Take was unable to open with the park and remains closed due to extensive problems with the launching system and trains. Arrow has been working to fix them, but Mr. Illum's patience is growing thin with the ride. Warner has been talking with Six Flags, maybe the park could be up for sale soon? Or will Warner try to buy an interest in the company? Only time will tell! Here is the photo update! Front Gate advertising Black Hole Jolly Roger occupies the old Carousel spot Strange looking entrance to Black Hole Black Hole has an industrial theme to it, like a NASA testing facility Looking at the Station and Queue Inside the station Black Hole at Night The Carousel had a rehab and is in a new location Double Take remains closed, its future is in jeopardy
  17. If it's a coaster that has been around for a long time and it they are moving it from there to here, I have a feeling it could be Laser from Dorney. I think Holiday World would love to save this classic from the scrap heap.
  18. Don't worry, I was just showing the layout of the coaster, I'm still in the process of landscaping and theming!
  19. ^Inspired by Shockwave ^^I see you read through the press release, I should've made it clearer that it was one of Intamin's earliest Stand Up designs, loop and curves!
  20. Thanks everyone, I appreciate you all still having interest after delays in updates! I've got some more concept art for you before I get the Spring update posted, big changes are ahead!
