  1. Sorry for not updating for so long, been quite busy in the Christmas period. ________________________ Unfortunatley I couldn't make it to the Christmas event due to the snow however the park posted some Promotional Images on it's Facebook of the event, After this I will show some of the photos I got during January of the park. The park is half way through it's off season. The Candy Cane Express The Show seemed popular at night, I was told it had something to with Christmas being stolen from the north pole. The Area around Santa's Grotto Shark Bait wasn't to busy Nether was express The Entrance Areas decorations The Merry go round. I managed to visit the park in January when the Snow had cleared up to see the Developments over at Adventure Express It seems the pathways have been expanded to hold more guests Prey seems to have started getting a re-paint There's quite a lot of space where the cafe used to be, They have moved Pendulum's queue line to that side to free up some more space The Paths don't seem as cramped as they once were The area around Adventure Express has been re-themed for it's 30th anniversary and a new cafe is being built around the break run and has a balcony overlooking it along with an exit from the ride into a small gift shop. You can see the new trains in this photo. The new trains were built by Gerstlauer The Entrance to the ride has changed quite a bit, they have themed the queue to it's original theme of the abandoned train racing through the mountains, the queue line is mainly themed to the ruins of the preparation of the expedition. It's not finished yet, a few touches have still to be made however this part is nearly done. The other side to cafe used some of the supports from the old cafe to build a smaller balcony overlooking the walkway, chairs and more vines have still to be added. Thanks for reading! Please comment and give feedback!
  2. Nice Park so far, I'm looking forward to see what comes out of this project, One suggestion I have is that ou should download the wooden support overhaul to make your wooden supports more realistic without having to custom support rides, It can be downloaded here Apart from that it's looking good.
  3. I think it's awesome seeing Big Mike on the Live screen! Bad Screen shot but It was pretty cool to see him talking to someone live
  4. Thanks for the comments! Ace Of Spades: Thanks, I usually play the game in low graphic settings to allow me to build more with less lag, I have turned it up for updates though, Thanks for the advice!. I will fix the Zero G roll's support. Thanks for the feedback! -Edge of Beast-: Thanks, I am working on adding more trees and you will also see in this update that the paths are being widened and I am starting to get rid of the 90 degree angled corners. I have also made the coasters supports partly custom along with the log flume. I have still to add footers. Thanks for the feedback, it's very helpful! coastercrazy 9: Not much I can say to that but Thanks for reading! _________________________ The park is now closed for the off season and is preparing for it's winter event, Half the park is closed off for Maintenance and is getting new wider pathways and fences. The Gift Shop and Cafe for Prey is being removed after being closed for 3 years, the only thing inside the building open was the On Ride photo booth and it was deemed as a waste of space for a small photo booth. Also the park is preparing for it's Xmas event by building a stage and a grotto. The entrance to the park after the bridge, the Fountain has been covered up for maintenance. Both of these rides are now closed Looking back from the bridge you can see some more Xmas decorations on display The park have started widening the path at this point De-construction of the Prey gift shop, they have to do it bit by bit to avoid damaging anything Preparation for a smaller cafe in this spot is in progress More work on the entrance area, they are trying to get as much as possible done before the snow starts Vipers final big drop, however the lake is drained. Some of the boats are inside the building under prey for maintenance No work has started on racer yet. Some rides maintenance are done is the station Once I was guided to the open side of the park, I was shown the stage has been re-build again (it's built every year) They have blocked of sea storm and the log flume though One of the actors was preparing for a rehearsal on the stage The stage from the top of Shark Baits lift hill. Another photo of the stage. The Cafe's fences have been removed to be replaced before the Winter Weekends open. The entrance to Santa's Grotto is through the entrance you would usually pass through to get to Kid's kingdom. The Cafe will be open this winter, it has still to be given some decorations. A tent has been attached to the back of entrance to the grotto and has been themed inside. The train ride is being re-themed to the candy cane express The express will be open during the Winter weekends So will the Slide and Cafe. The slide has fences at the stop to prevent people from trying to get pictures of the work going on around the park. Theses rides won't be operating for a while I'm aware the Cars, Wild Mouse and Shark Bait will though! Please comment with any feedback!
  5. Adventure Island Amusement Park was founded in 1948 and has grown since then, Once the park was known as a wildlife park before gaining it's new owners in 1995 who modernized the park by demolishing the parks wooden coaster to replace it with a B&M inverted coaster along with other additions such as the Power Towers and Pendulum and Mad Mouse. I am going to giving you updates from the park from now on. The park is nearly finished it's season and is preparing for it's Xmas event. The Park is built on an island at which visitors cross a bridge to get to and can travel to various parts of the park by Boat. The park is the bigger of the two islands and features a large mountain which was also part of when the park was a wildlife and holiday camp. Also there is a water park known as Adventure Creek Water Park on the smaller Island however I will not be able to cover this fully as the park has closed for the season. Here are some pictures from the park before it preparing for it's Xmas event. Here is the entrance area before the bridge, these feature ticket booths, shops and cafes, the parks offices and an small theater used for private events. The bridge to cross allowing entry to the park [ From the entrance to the park you get a pretty good view of Prey and the inverter which rarely operates now. Once crossing the bridge I decided to go round the park clockwise and headed along to the area with more of the thrill ride side of the park apart from the Shark Bait looping coaster which is on the more family orientated part of the park. As you can see the park promotes the thrill rides on this side of the park. I passed one of the parks older attractions which is a Schwarzkopf sit down family coaster (speed racer) that utilizes the terrain of the mountain for most of the ride. It is called Adventure express and is opposite Pendulum Near Pendulum and Prey is the parks oldest remaining coaster, the Racer. It is a wooden rollercoaster that was given new trains a few years a go however has stopped racing a while ago. The racer racing during testing, it is rare to see it racing with passengers. It does still retain it's art Deco Station however with a covered maintenance shelter added on to store the new Trains and it still contains two of the old PTC trains. Past the racer takes you to an older part of the park including the Wild Cat coaster, The Viper suspended coaster, Tidal wave coaster and a few other rides. Walking along the path takes us to the old ghost train. The ride was put up for sale a few years ago however never got sold. The ride is built partly underground and is quite big, it used to have a big Facade however that was removed when the park was selling the ride, the rides building still remains and the ride only operates during the parks halloween activities and on busy days. Near here is the end drop of Viper before going to the breaks, I didn't mention that the ride got new trains to save maintenance costs. The Scrambler next to Vipers station. Tidal Wave was the parks 1st looping coaster. You can see one of the Boat rides stations as well. In the distance you can see the entrance to kids kingdom and the back on the ghost train. The ride from overhead. Kids Kingdom is next door and you enter through a small castle facade which is extended at the side to have a small cafe and a storage facility along with the slide build on the hill. This area has not been touched very much since the park was sold apart from the family coaster was added in 1999 The Express family coaster The Teacups and merry go round are both very old along with the train ride around the side of the mountain which is a family favorite in the park. Next to the Teacups are the Vintage Cars that wind around the Log Flume and Shark Bait looping coaster This photo shows the Cars station a bit better along with the Boat rides Station and a part of the Log Flume This photo shows the interaction between the rides. The older part of the park in the distance. vhttp://i966.photobucket.com/albums/ae145/robo541/Shot6356.jpg[/img] Another photo of Prey from the distance. The Parks Current Logo Please comment, I hope to improve on the park, I am aware there's a few parts of the park I need to work on, I would love to hear your thoughts. In my next update I will show more of the park and preparation of the Christmas weekends at the park. PS: Thanks to RD with the help on the Schwarzkopf coaster!
  6. For those interested, it looks like the PMBO Track has been Removed! Photos from Pleasure Beach experience.
  7. I found this picture on here of what the rides facade used to look like when it was just being built. Also heres another two photos It has been said it may take until summer for it to be fully finished.
  8. It seems like they are getting rid of most of the facade, this was an explanation as to why they were doing this. There are six pumps at the top of Valhalla for the waterfall effect. As far as I'm aware, 4 are being removed and only 2 will remain. This is simply due to it battering the station, cost reasons and the simple fact that they haven't used all six pumps simultaneously in years. The turnaround is likely to stay. That track is being exposed to lots of rubble, yes, but the feature is an essential block brake, sure the ride system could be reprogrammed etcetera but that would be costly and PBB barely have enough cash as it is. If you look at these pictures you can see the big ones track supporting it. Also for those interested The Gold Mine has closed to be transformed into something else, The roof on that is also starting be torn down The big one is Also being retracted again. These a lot of work going on this winter at Pleasure Beach, Also Bling has been sold to Sky line park in Germany. Photos Copyright Pleasure Beach Experience there's more photos on there as well.
  9. The Only difference I would say is that Blackpool is starting to improve a bit now. With Constant additions now and more investment in the park is giving the park a better future unlike IB who is going for the worse. This park looks very nice as well, It's such a shame to see it deteriorate with the new Management however it's good to see the employees worried about the park.
  10. 18/20 in the first one and I got 16/20 in the second one.
  11. For My new park I though about adding a suspended coaster around the Mountain along side the Schwarzkopf so I tried a rough layout today, not sure if it's realistic or not or what to fix. Due to it being on a mountain it's hard to show the layout so I made a video of the ride http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSgTh0BPPag Please comment on the layout of the ride and how to improve it. I have still to add supports, catwalks and work on the terrain a bit more. Here are some pictures of the ride from above to give another perspective. I have nearly finished work on the Speed racer called Adventure Express the only thing still to fix is the Tunnel part of the ride and to add supports. Here is a On ride video of it so far. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6qysDWx9Ig Some feedback would be appreciated as I'm not sure if I should keep the Suspended coaster.
  12. ^ Are you Allowed to use the Net on 2 CTR Then? I Considered entering this but RCT3's Flyers useless anyway and you don't have a lot of options.
  13. ^ Love the Custom Supports! I'm Working on a sort of Batman the Ride Clone except not themed to Batman. It looks better at night, I still need to fix the Supports though.
  14. Maybe they could relocate the Boomerang from Six Flags new Orleans if it's still there and they don't have a shuttle.
  15. Working a bit more on my Corkscrew Coaster and Added a Log Flume around it and have nearly finished supports. Does the Log Flumes layout look ok?
