  1. I drove down to Six Flags today. I wasn't able to get construction photos of the new Dinn coaster... Because they finished it! "Wolfston Railroad" is a huge, 120 foot roller coaster based on the popular Texas Giant. Themed around a mining town in the Yukon, the crazy ride twists and turns like you wouldn't believe. In the gift shops in the park and in the nearby towns, this postcard can be bought:

    Ride on!

    And for those on the nearby flightpath, you can snap these photos:

    It looks amazing!

    As well as a coaster, theming has arrived:

    On the west side of the river, stuff is also going on, according to a newspaper:

    May 29th, 1981 The Ontario Chronicle

    The rumors run wild as to what is happening at nearby Six Flags Ontario. With the recent completion of their fifth coaster, popularity of the other wooden coaster has declined dramatically, leading some to suspect it will see its last days this year. "The other day, I noticed that not only were no trains running on the Bear, but the rickety service bridge was gone", claims a guest. That's not the only strange going-on at Six Flags, however: Another person who rode the steel Goldrush coaster says she noticed that a "large portion" of the woods across the river near the kid's area had been cleared. Her claim caused many to search the area that housed WR's parts for coaster track, but found nothing.

    So, this could be the last whole shot of the mighty Bear:

    The bridge is gone:

    And it appears that lady was right about cleared ground...

    Well that's the end of my report. I leave you with a shot of the park as a whole. Pretty soon I won't be able to get this all in one shot:

  2. Texas Giant?

    Uh, wow. I'm actually not all that surprised you guessed so quickly.

    I just got back from the only real Canadian Six Flags, La Ronde... I picked up a few ideas, but unfortunately a lot of them involve ParkDat-ing, and I can't figure out how to do it. Oh, well. I'll promise to show more construction shots next update!

     

     

     

     

     

    oh, and the name is "Wolfston Railroad" to go with its theme (yukon mine town)

  3. If any of you took my advice and looked at the "Preview" thread, you would have noticed something that looks like this:

    Let's see the progress, shall we?

    The project was top-secret, and many employees were... ummm... dismissed for revealing it to their friends or family. The mechanical crew were checking out the Pirrrrate ride when they took this photo:

    And the park's location near a flightpath enabled lucky photographers a chance to see the huge empty lot:

    Hmmm... it looks large. Some officials told me that it would be the longest, but not largest (Goldrush takes up a lot of space) ride in the park.

    So far, nobody knows how these photos were taken:

    But since these were leaked to the press earlier than anticipated, we opened early so the guests would be able to see the ride construction.

    Let me know what you think of the new coaster. I have a name, a theme, and a model. Hint: it's another Six Flags coaster.

  4. Well, I'm back!

     

    If anyone who pays attention to this thread hasn't already checked the "Preview" thread, I advise you to do so.

    (Hint, hint)

     

    So, shall we take a look at what's going on down at Six Flags Ontario?

    SCR22.BMP

    I removed the S&S towers in favor of a teeny tiny courtyard.

    SCR23.BMP

    I dearly hope this is a better forest.

    SCR25.BMP

    And to keep more realistic, Aquatica Falls was removed too. But there's a wall for a reason!

    SCR27.BMP

    People were complaining that Goldrush's sign placement was confusing, so we moved it.

    SCR28.BMP

    I decided not to hack the racecourse, but make it simpler.

    SCR29.BMP

    Since I don't have custom supports, I just used a support blocker to make Blue Fire more realistic

    SCR30.BMP

    A final overview shot. Let me know what you guys think.

  5. Sorry it's been ages, but school is a drag and as you can imagine I haven't had the time or patience to get anything done until today, especially since I downloaded the 8cars per trainer, which has come in very handy. One major thing happening in the park was this: an off-season. In the off-season, many great changes have happened. Here's what I'm talking about:

    SCR1.BMP

    I see S&S!

    SCR5.BMP

    We installed our second water ride, Aquatica Falls

    SCR6.BMP

    A badly hacked race course

    SCR17.BMP

    And what's this?

    SCR18.BMP

    Wow! A jazzed-up mountain trail!

    SCR19.BMP

    It even interacts with Goldrush!

    SCR20.BMP

    At the end you will find a plateau with a restaurant

    SCR13.BMP

    Along with the S&S towers came an entire new area

    SCR14.BMP

    Here you can see all the attractions in the new area: Bumblebee, the Arrow junior coaster, Count Darkula's Haunted Castle, two themed dark rides, and "the Rainbow Boulevard"

    SCR15.BMP

    I see you Bumblebee!

    SCR11.BMP

    It also seems that the Avant-Garden has been replaced with a small forest

    SCR21.BMP

    And a final overview to wrap up the update. The park opens to Season Pass holders April 23, 1977 (game years) or regular guests April 24

  6. Hmmm... disappointing. Really guys, comments? Criticism? Hate mail?

     

    Anyway, to refresh your memories, last update I showed you the track pieces for a large ride. Well, here's the ride: Six Flags Express

    SCR195.BMP

    Overpass of nearby nature trail

    SCR196.BMP

    Tunnel shot

    SCR198.BMP

    There's a lot of trenches to travel through

    SCR200.BMP

    SCR201.BMP

    River crossover

    SCR202.BMP

    And since cameras are allowed on board, you can get awesome pics of Blue Fire!

    SCR203.BMP

    Or Bear!

    SCR204.BMP

    Push, little engine, push!

    SCR205.BMP

    SCR206.BMP

    SCR209.BMP

    There is no denying it: Six Flags Express is a hit!

  7. ^Noted

     

    The park is simply splendid! I find myself driving down on weekends to experience some awesome thrills. I'll cut to the chase and show you the photos I took:

    SCR163.BMP

    Bear's new bridge

    SCR165.BMP

    Something big looks to be happening!

    SCR166.BMP

    A station building appeared

    SCR172.BMP

    Goldrush is still awesome

    SCR175.BMP

    The court is actually quieter than anywhere else

    SCR179.BMP

    Here's a look at how much we have left to do...

  8. ^Ummmm... Have you read my most recent post? SF already bought us. Sorry. Oh, well, the awesome new Bear is the upside of the buyout.

    ^^Thanks!

     

    Bear got a lot of attention, as it was completed just a week ago. This was found in a newspaper:

     

    Following the buyout of Lott Gardens by Six Flags, who renamed the park "Six Flags Ontario", a new thrilling attraction has been installed in the park. The new Bear, the motto of which is "This bark has bite", was completed last week and will open tomorrow. Hundreds of riders will delight in this fast, rough coaster located across the river from the main area.

    And Bear wasn't the only major news:

     

    What was advertised several years ago as the new, thrilling, and most importantly looping roller coaster, Adrenalin Rush, has got a whole new name, and whole new reputation. "The ride did not open with the park" says a spokesperson. "Major refurbishment took a lot longer than expected, but now the ride is open and still amazing." Six Flags has decided to name the ride Blue Fire, to match its flame effects and new paint job.

    Another newspaper got a hold of these photos on Bear and Blue Fire's media days:

    SCR154.BMP

    What's this I see?

    SCR155.BMP

    Oh my gosh! BEAR!

    SCR156.BMP

    A better station, I find

    SCR157.BMP

    A helicopter shot of the whole thing

    SCR160.BMP

    This was the first train with passengers

    SCR158.BMP

    Blue Fire twisty-ness

    SCR161.BMP

    The final shot. WOW. We've already come so far in 9 years.

    SCR17.BMP

    Ooh! Nostalgia...

  9. That's right, Lott Gardens now operates under the new management of -prepare to boo- the Six Flags Corporation . In a rushed decision, the company bought the small but spectacular park and announced a few orders of business. Firstly, to heighten the popularity of Six Flags Ontario Gardens, the company has decided to include yet another roller coaster to the collection. Named Bear, this compact coaster will have daredevil riders flying over the river. But first, media day photos for the reopening!

    SCR149.BMP

    Guests were eager from the beginning. Rides in photo: Star-Studded Carousel

    SCR151.BMP

    The Square. Rides in photo: Ripple Theatre, Tornado

    SCR152.BMP

    The big area, Castaway Cove. Rides in photo: Goldrush, Screaming Swings, Castaway, Storm Chaser, Great Big Wheel. You can also see the lake flyover on Bear in foreground

    SCR145.BMP

    Goldrush's new station

    SCR144.BMP

    Tiny hills now dot AR's landscape. REMEMBER: I am still looking for name suggestions

    SCR153.BMP

    A simple station comes with Bear

    SCR148.BMP

    Most of Bear is in this picture. Let me know what you think!

  10. ^ Noted, but you'll have to wait to see the changes you requested!

     

    I'm going to tell you guys straight- Progress!

    The park is getting closer and closer to finishing, and may be just on time!

    Adrenalin rush is getting serious changes including a new name. Any suggestions welcome, but decide after you see the changes please!

    Here's the photos of progress so far:

    SCR135.BMP

    The new Castaway

    SCR136.BMP

    The ride's a lot bigger this time

    SCR137.BMP

    As for AR, a tunnel came first...

    SCR138.BMP

    ...Then a paint job and flame effects!

    SCR139b.bmp

    Red: Goldrush; Pink: Castaway; Burgundy: Great Big Wheel; Light Green: Storm Chaser; White: Screaming Swings; Orange: The Avant-Garden; Grey: Magnolia Court; Dark Green: Arcade and Administration; Blue: Fountains; Black: Star-Studded Carousel; Yellow: Ripple Theatre; Purple: UNKNOWN. -Whew- The area bordered by red is future expansion.

  11. W.O.W. Look at what just got released into local papers:

     

     

    MAJOR RENOVATION BEFORE SALE OF PROPERTY: “Lott Gardens”

    Major renovation is taking place at Lott Gardens, which will, by the end of extensive renovation, become a fully-fledged amusement park instead of the “funfair” it was intended to be. Major focal points include:

    • The shipment of the small cottage to another location

    • The redesign of the funfair area to be themed on the old West

    • New rides and removed rides

    • The creation of administrative offices

    • A themed children’s play area

    • The removal of the outdoor swimming pool

    • An action theater

    • The move of the gardens and creation of two fountains

    • Other improvements to meet buyer’s needs

    The current date is 1970, and the renovations will likely complete in February 1972 – from now until then, the park will be CLOSED. ...

    SCR91.BMP

    The cottage is going away

    SCR92.BMP

    The fountain is going in

    SCR93.BMP

    The new administrative offices are going in

    SCR95.BMP

    Looks like AR is getting improvements (and a new name)

    SCR97.BMP

    Another fountain was added

    SCR99.BMP

    Lastly, an overview of the park formerly known as Lott Gardens

  12. @Everyone: School here in Quebec starts today so unfortunately posts will be weekend-only.

    @Dotrobot: The path is now a standard wooden one, and it was actually an improvement, thanks!

    @CoasterCreator9: Yep.

    1997

    Wow! We already have a new coaster... unfortunately, non-looping! Oh, well, still awesome thrills! Vekoma has been kind enough to provide us with yet another steel roller-coaster, themed like a mine - specifically a gold mine, hence the name "Goldrush". With an an underground tunnel, steep drops and terrain-hugging curves, this wild ride will have you screaming - for more!

    SCR72.BMP

    Tada!

    SCR73.BMP

    The tunnel entrance...

    SCR74.BMP

    ...and exit.

    SCR75.BMP

    My favorite flying-over-the-lake shot

    SCR77.BMP

    The lift hill

    SCR78.BMP

    The entrance is in the food court

    SCR80.BMP

    The giant entrance sign. The park designers seem to like huge vertical signs

    SCR81.BMP

    Whatever else is happening at the Gardens?

    SCR82.BMP

    Lastly, it deeply saddens me that Marsha and myself are starting to pack our bags as the theme park is proving too much to handle. We are seeking new ownership... *sigh*

  13. The new roller coaster is a hit! The two trains, each carrying 20 guests, are both full and the new name is finally in place - I decided to name it "Adrenalin Rush", for the feeling you get when you drop, twist and loop. It's very scenic, and the trees whoosh past you at up to 50 mph! Here are some photos I acquired:

    SCR36.BMP

    The entrance sign, poking out of the water

    SCR40.BMP

    The theming is finally complete

    SCR37.BMP

    A pirate barrel ride was also built

    SCR41.BMP

    A satellite photo I was presented for my birthday

    SCR43.BMP

    A nearly full Adrenalin Rush train prepares to scream

    SCR47.BMP

    A representative presented me with this photo and told me he wanted to build another coaster there if we earned enough cash...

    SCR48.BMP

    Lastly, development of a food court is starting. Hopefully we will only serve my wife's cooking - I do not want any franchises!!!
