  1. Today Lott Gardens opened for the second time and might I say it was ever so popular. Here's why:

    Construction on a roller coaster has begun! That's right, a new ride built by Schwartzkopf that towers at 85 feet tall, will not only send you flying as you pass the trees, but will turn you upside down! Construction crews showed me a few sneak peeks at what was to come...

    A few track pieces, soon to be repainted

    A station house.

    The layout, to be built by September. The roller coaster has no name but I was chosen to name it... Hmmm... think, think, think

  2. March 9th, 1965 John Lott's Journal

    I was about to open my recently completed gardens, finished just last week, when a nice but somewhat narcissistic (always me, me, me) young fellow approached me with lots of papers and a shocking but somewhat tempting proposal. Apparently, a small company for which he worked was setting up small traveling fairs around Canada. I was one of their proposed Ontario locations. As a British person who had enjoyed many a traveling fair in my day, I was about to agree. He cut me off; he told me he wanted to set up a permanent fair, named Fun-Town. Convincing me was easy; the fair was to include a carousel, a Fun house, a pool, a Ferris Wheel, a "Haunted" House, a small circus tent and a larger ride, as of yet undecided. The truly hard part was convincing my wife, Martha, to let us go through with it; she wanted a vegetable garden to save money from groceries, and I wanted to earn money for managing the new tourist attraction that would be Lott Gardens. Eventually she fell in favor of the fair, although somewhat close to our cottage.

    The many acres of undeveloped land that came with the house

    Ground is being broken!

    The pool is being filled already

    A full pool is almost done!

    Done, with a floating rent-a-swimsuit building for the forgetful guests!

    And finally, a fully created funfair (without the big ride though...)

  3. Thank you, now I know

    Well, I've started work on a fantasy park instead; next thread with my name on it will probably be it. I'll eventually decide which one is better - La Ronde or my planned "Six Flags Ontario" park. I won't be able to post much for about 2 weeks; I don't spend my weekdays posting much, and next weekend is a trip to a Cedar Fair park, Canada's Wonderland... Kinda ironic, what with the Six Flags theme I'm starting to elaborate on. Oh well, maybe there will be inspirations. Until then, I'm out.

  4. Finally, progress has started on La Ronde ... Some screenshots to show you where everything is:

    Area where Le Vampire and Le Cobra will be

    An empty Lac aux Dauphins, just waiting to be filled!

    SCR3.BMP

    Area for Le Monstre, the tallest double-tracked woodie in the world

    Tiny place to squeeze Toboggan Nordique in

    A hill to put Ribambelle, the kids' country on

    In this shot, Ednor - L'Attaque will be fitted. Dragon's lot is also visible

    The as of yet unfinished back entrance/exit themed like the Medieval Village it opens into

    The parking lot Goliath rumbles over at the tip of Ile Ste-Helene

    SCR9.BMP

    Just to clarify - the section is not actually Vekomaland, nor are there too many; just 2, Le Boomerang and Le Super-Manege

  5. Sorry that it isn't moving along as expected, because my new computer has yet to download RCT2 but I promise by the weekend I will post about the progress. Expect to see a post every time there are screenshots. One small tidbit - Nobody posted about starting in Expo 67, so the park will be up-to-date, that is, teacups are gone, Ednor is built, insane ticket prices are insane, etc. Am already gathering information on rides. Sorry I did little planning ahead - I was overexcited about posting a new thread. Next update will most likely be screenshots!
