  1. I rode Viper today for the first time since it's refurb, and noticed it's received the Goliath treatment. The lift chain now slows to a crawl at the very top, and the MCBR now completely stops the train instead of just trimming it. The ride still plows through the first three loops, but the back car no longer gives that catapult/whiplash effect when cresting the lift hill. I'm puzzled as to why they're completely stopping it on the MCBR, though, as the train already crawled through the heavily-trimmed second half, and now moves even more slowly.

     

    I don’t post here alot but read these forums often... I was there for the first time last Wednesday specifically to ride Viper since I’ve always hated that my home park SFGADV removed the Scream Machine... anyway Viper was absolutely hauling and the MCBR barely touched the train. I absolutely loved it. Are you sure this is a permanent change?

     

    Definitely experienced a full stop on Goliath’s MCBR which I was expecting.

  2. I always read these forums but don't post alot..... but I thought I'd share.

     

    Mine was Great American Scream Machine as SFGAdv. This is the coaster that started it all for me. I can remember driving into the parking lot and being in absolute awe when I was 13. I know the ride got a lot of hate but it was always one of my absolute favorites due to its size intensity and dominance over the front of the park. I never had a problem with the roughness.

     

    When I found out it was closing I immediately bought the tickets to be on the last ride for me and my cousin. Being on the last ride ever (2nd car, 1st row) was something I'll never forget. Everyone was going crazy when they sent us around twice haha.

    Great story! I really loved that coaster too and to me it was iconic. A classic that dominated the park's skyline. It was so much better than Green Lantern (although I did like that one when it was still Chang back at SFKK).

     

    I totally agree....ever since they took it down I feel like the coaster lineup took a hit since pretty much every other large steel coaster is B&M (except Ka but that's over in 10 seconds). To me the B&Ms all kind of "feel" the same and GASM was a completely different animal. On paper we have one of the best lineups around and I'm sure I'm in the minority here, but the removal of GASM has always bothered me.

  4. Hey Guys, sorry I haven't had much time to update this latest, but here is the latest...

     

    I'm in the early-mid 2000s now as far as my timeline goes and I'm not sure what to add in the open space you'll see in the third picture.....any suggestions?

    bvpr.thumb.jpg.9826e85a72c240b5afa2b54ee26fb980.jpg

    The park's original looping coaster, Lazer Loop, was removed to make way for Black Viper, a terrain B&M sitdown looper situated on the hillside by the log flume.

    Here is the current park overview. If you look closely you can see several minor changes since the last update.

    open.thumb.jpg.2f432bbb58c4ee8c7b906113c32eec87.jpg

    Any suggestions of a ride or coaster to add here? Figure somewhere in the 2000-2005 time range.

  5. hey guys, here is another update:

     

    1993 - little dipper and antique cars were closed for the season.

    1994 - antique cars were modified and reopened. little dipper reopened at its new location with a new color scheme

    1995 - Tomahawk, a Vekoma SLC was built in the former little dipper location

    1996 - Sky Rocket - an S&S drop tower, and Time Warp, a Chance Inverter, were built.

    1997 - no new rides, land clearing is beginning behind the Twister

    ldipmov.thumb.jpg.4cf31d92052000fd312cf0581b6d8aea.jpg

    here is Little Dipper at its new location in the park, along with Time Warp and Sky Rocket.

    Tomahawk took over the former Little Dipper site.

    Here is a 1996 Park Overview

    lclr.thumb.jpg.0db275d8de5c13ff905c9970b4199d68.jpg

    In 1997, land clearing began behind Diamond Creek Twister. Could this be for the parks first B&M?

  6. @coasterbill - you cant see it but the piece the train is on slides to the left, that way a train on the block in the tunnel could hold and then advance onto the transfer section, then move forward so the transfer could hold 2 trains.

     

    here is an update....

    BOA1.thumb.jpg.c9b499c12c587bde891529442aa89cf3.jpg

    Here is a full shot of Python's replacement. Its an Arrow junior hyper coaster called BOA built in 1992. (Morgan hypers didnt come around until the late 90s)

    Removing Python left some room for expansion, even with the addition of BOA

    LD.thumb.jpg.d63c2e6f33bda7fbf4e484a69a4e1a89.jpg

    But in a rather bizarre move, both Little Dipper and Antique cars have been closed and a construction fence has appeared with no announcement made.

  7. Hey guys, here is an update with a few shots.

    ldip.thumb.jpg.56e9ced6ab5e085d9ac42df772f789f0.jpg

    For the 1986-88 seasons the park focused on internal improvements, such as adding a transfer track to Little Dipper to add a 2nd train

    twist.thumb.jpg.557dd3d89e0a0ab3b40739872100aae0.jpg

    Twister and Lazer Loop (not shown) also received 2nd trains during this period

    flats.thumb.jpg.ef5614179e6aeca30be7c93a449bdafb.jpg

    The park received a flat ride package in 1989 as this was an area the park was lacking.

    pyt.thumb.jpg.3d9b05d39b52b966b7e66e6e102fede8.jpg

    Python is rumored to be on the chopping block, some land clearing is going on. Arrow is rumored to be involved in whatever is going on here...

  8. @IronWolfman I noticed that as soon as I posted the pic. I replaced it with an Enterprise. Good eye!

     

    @fraroc There are actually a few areas I have in mind for expansion, but you are right. At least 1 of the coasters isn't going to be around for the long run and I am definitely going to have to do some rearranging. If this was a real park the next move I'm going to make would probably make some people mad...but I'm thinking long term...

  9. Hey Guys. I haven't really posted here much but I recently got the urge to play RCT2 again after looking at the parks on here.

     

    I wanted to start off with something pretty small to get back into it. I've never been that great at buildings or custom scenery or anything like that, but here is what I have so far. I wanted to be similar to smaller Cedar Fair park like Dorney or Valleyfair.

     

    Year 1 for this is 1985. The park has 4 roller coasters:

    1- Python - Vekoma Loop Screw

    2- Diamond Creek Twister - terrain woodie

    3- Laser Loop - Schwarpzkopf Looping Star

    4- Little Dipper - Junior Woodie

     

    I'm going to keep updating and expanding it. Any comments/criticisms are welcome. Here are a few screen shots.

  10. does anyone know why Anaconda even has a MCBR?

    Three train operation?

     

    The design of Anaconda always bothered me. 3 train ops would be the obvious answer, but the layout seems way too short for that to even make any sense. Not to mention I don't think the brake run at the end has room to stack two trains, but I could be wrong about that.

  11. Hey guys,

     

    I wanted to upload a few shots of a new park I've been working on called Cypress Harbor... I'm trying to make each park a little better than the last, though im still not that good at buildings. Check out a few screens...the park is almost done and I'm gona upload it soon.

     

    Its kind of similar to the last park I put on here, Cedar Gardens, which is in these forums somewhere and also in the game exchange.

     

    Let me know what you think.
