  1. Hell no. Wildcat, Gwazi, and both of the Roar twins are way more likely. Apocalypse isn't a bad ride. Not by a longshot. It's still the best of the GCIs that I've ridden.
  2. That's really disappointing consider that it seems to take quite a bit of work to mess up a GCI coaster, especially one of the newer ones that were designed with the Millennium Flyers in mind. At this rate, will it just be Son of Psyclone in a couple of years? Nah. Give it at least another ten years and then we'll see. Besides, am I really the only one here who thinks that a bit rattle adds to a wooden coaster? I still really like Ghostrider, Boss, and Renegade. Also Rattler is still on the list.

I feel so alone putting a GCI on top of my list and floating airtime over abrupt.
  3. For being built over three other rides, I'd say Desert Storm was designed pretty damn well besides the fact that some of the supports are really inefficient. It's forceful and intense to say the least, and even though its a bit bumpy, it's definitely forgivable because it's got no OTSRs. One of the better Schwarzkopf "ripoffs" IMHO.
  4. Correct..... Premier acquired the the park mid 1998 which is why I posted what I did. Mid 1998 is when they added frisbee and the top spin. Did Fiesta Texas and SF ever have a deal with Huss? Because weren't those added when they first were designed? Neither were firsts. The First American Top Spin opened in 1993 and Frisbee opened in 1994. If I were to guess, They were purchased for Old Indiana but sent to SFFT after Premier abandoned that idea. Where are said first flat rides located?
  5. Wow, what a way to bump a thread. Wasn't expecting anything about this for at least another month to say the least.
  6. You really think that Maverick's are bad? I can't wait to see your reaction upon riding Goudurix for the first time.
  7. Totally agreed. I really wish more people realized this. I'm surprised that flying coasters don't get this kind of flak considering most of them are really relaxing minus the pretzel rolls if they have them. This ride looks pretty good, but it looks like they spent way too much money on it. But since I didn't buy, I don't mind. Yet another reason to go to China for me.
  8. That wooden coaster is blisteringly fast for its height. Gravity Group really know how to make those I guess. Also glad to see that El Locos are getting even more popular. Those things are perfect indoor coasters form what I can tell. They're quiet, small, and relatively cheap.
  9. I liked it, mediocre but enjoyable. EXCEPT FOR THE LINE. Holy crap. All of its in the sun from like 10-5, and in Texas anytime between june and september, that's bad news if the line is longer than 20 minutes. Also even though it's not photogenic at all, I like Knott's Boomerang. The new trains are great.
  10. Am I the only damn person on this entire forum who doesn't think that Boomerangs are that bad?
  11. Correct..... Premier acquired the the park mid 1998 which is why I posted what I did. Mid 1998 is when they added frisbee and the top spin. Did Fiesta Texas and SF ever have a deal with Huss? Because weren't those added when they first were designed?
  12. Got Uncharted Golden Abyss, Sly Cooper Thieves in Time and Retro City Rampage. I absolutely LOVE the online functions of this thing. Can't wait until I get Tearaway and Need for Speed for it tomorrow.
  13. That Dueling Dragons one is really striking. I absolutely love how you got the shot so it looks like the track has no supports to it.
  14. Another quick update for you all before I hit the sack. So after some experimentation I ended up with a miniature, but still unconscionable amusement park contained within only 10x10 gridlines. I may make more of these as they are REALLY fun to make. Also, I did the unthinkable this afternoon: I created a 4x4 coaster with actually half-decent stats and full theming. I can tell you I'm going to put this thing in any park I can get my hands on as it takes up less space than the average flatride plus its queue.
  15. Cedar Point has some great ones. When the park slows down on the midweekdays in the evening, things get pretty funny sometimes. I heard one guy on Magnum XL-200 say "As you know, Lake Eerie is home to many different kinds of insects. And since Magnum XL-200 goes 72 miles per hour, please, enjoy your meal." On Wicked Twister, since the train launches directly out of the station, the countdowns have plenty of opportunity for hilarity. One one occasion I recall the ride operator saying "Launching in 5... 1." It took my dad and I completely by surprise and it made the ride one of the better ones of the night.
  16. Download link is up for version 2.0! http://www.themeparkreview.com/game_exchange/track.php?id=3059 Includes 50 microrides and 1 bonus ride, which is an hour long car ride. For the lols.
  17. Thanks for the comments, guys! Really appreciating the positive feedback. As for this next bunch, even though I half-assed the theming on some of them, I really tried to push to see just how small I could make these rides. As a result, these next few are mainly 6x6 and 5x5 rides. I promise a download link will be up soon. Although most of these are cross-ridetype clones of eachother, some of them have very different stats. Such as these two. Ones a Hairpin, the other a Wild Mouse, in the same layout and theming, but they have wildly different stats. These two are almost the same layout, besides the first couple switchbacks at the top of the lift. Rotated for a different view, as the support structure obscures visibility. Both of these were made to fit in obscure places, as Gunpowder is 4x10 and the other is 16x3 Here's another view. Also Gunpowder is the only one of this batch that uses block braking. And for the grand finale, some ridiculously small 5x5 emoticon coasters. These suckers can fit pretty much anywhere in a park.
  18. Not very many of you will find this interesting, but the game is built off of Pantera's very own Vista Studio engine, and I believe that this is the first official full game that uses it. Engine specs here: http://www.panteragamestudio.com/engine.htm
  19. ...Some context and evidence would be nice... Well, now I guess we can confirm that there is a Chinese knock-off for everything, including the RCT3 Towering coaster.
  20. ^Starry Night Scrapper/Scraper/Ripper/whatever at World Joyland in Jiangsu, China. Supposedly one of the more forceful and intense flyers out there.
  21. Here's all of what I have now. The only remaining rides I have on my to-do list are: -Log flume -Steeplechase -Soap Box Derby Racers -Reverser Coaster In the meantime, here are what I have added to the collection: (All of the coasters here are 10x10 except for Convex which is 11x10.) Blackjack is a new wooden twister coaster with the most track I've ever fit in a 10x10 grid, and Sidewinder is a simple side-friction coaster that has the same layout as Splash, the dingy slide ride featured later. It wasn't until I uploaded this that I realised that Timber was already featured earlier, but Shatter, the Hypercoaster has not. Riptide is a Corkscrew coaster with the same layout as Flying Fury (the invert on the last page) with an added helix at the end. Machiniac the hyper (pronounced mah-shin-ee-ack) is probably the best themed one of the series so far. Probably the two most visually interesting of the bunch, Trapeze the Flying coaster, who's name resembles the way the ride flows through the elements, and Overclock the Giga, a low flying ride that generates some hefty forces for its height and speed. Although it's not very well implemented, I had to fit the Roman theming in somewhere. So there it is, on Sway, the suspended coaster, alongside Twister, the double looping Hopkins looper inspired by my hometown park's Desert Storm (from Castles-n-Coasters). Although neither one of them are very long or tall, Eye of the Tiger and Splash are both decent rides for their price and size. High Roller and Shaft, two of the higher-capacity and longer-length rides of the group. The double-cutback Loopinator (which oddly doesn't have any vertical loops), featured alongside Vortex, the only shuttle coaster out of the bunch so far. Concave and Hypotenuse are the same layout but different ride types, and Concave and Convex are designed to be side-by-side. Also Convex is the only roller coaster here that's 11x10. Blizzard and Black Diamond are clones of eachother minus the station, to account for the fact that one's a Flying Turns and the other is a Bobsled. Both have pretty much the same stats though. As for non-10x10 roller coasters, here's Whirlpool and TinyRapids, a 6x5 water ride inside a 12x12 water ride. As an added bonus, I thought I might as well throw in my first attempt at micro architecture in RCT2. Let me know what you think and thanks for viewing.
  22. I've been busy. I'm about to post my latest batch of these after over a half a year. Prepare yourselves.
