  1. I love this park which has a very inspiring technique. Your thread is one the few that has really grabbed my attention again for these role playing portrayals and I love it! Keep up the good work and remember, The audience will be surprised only if you're surprised yourself. This is vital to all artistic story lines.
  2. I'm really loving this. I'm saddened at the loss of Seaside Spot Theme Park but like you said, one must step back before stepping forward. You really improved with this park. Shooting Star was marvelously executed and your use of in game scenery is artful. Keep this up
  3. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Meta ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Wow, with nearly a two year gap between updates, I'm proud to say I am back to pick up where I left off. I apologize for leaving mid carnival update. At the time, the graphics card in my computer gave out so, after heavy consideration, me and a buddy decided it was best to entirely upgrade with a new computer. during those 2 years, depression, tragedy, and other misfortunes delayed my schedule and hence my late arrival. With my pc build being completed a few months ago, I've skimmed these pages and played with RCT3 for a while to regrasp my feel for this game and redevelop the "rollercoaster enthusiast" that's been in me since I was 5. That being said, my viewpoints and opinions have changed since I've last posted which will inevitably affect this "coaster blog". I've jotted the remnants of the storyline for Sunny Oaks from my memories and noted all the things I still need to change from everyone's critiques. Personally, I will probably change the title of this thread as well for it seems a little vague. Anyways, enough meta posting, I have to get this dusty train rolling again so on with the update... ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Sunny Oaks Town Fair Report 002 ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Welcome back to the blog! I'm glad to report the opening of the Sunny Oaks fair which officially opened it's gates a few days ago. The morning was bright and crisp, perfect fair weather so, with minimal hesitation, I left with only my phone and a camera. As mentioned, the weather was gorgeous. Walking to the main road, traffic is quickly spotted That road is typically only used as a maintenance road for the Steeple Colosseum. As such, guests can safely walk across with little to no attention given. Honestly, the parking lot was crowded, but definitely not filled. granted, it was 8 am when I made the walk to the fairgrounds. I quickly snapped a picture on the entry road. obviously, the lot still had an overabundance of customers to serve. First shot of the fair. The first thing I noticed was the attraction so noticeable in the sky. That seems like a new one for this year! This shot was taken from the entry platform. As you may recall, because of the lack in field entryways at the parking lot entrance, the city uses boardwalks so fairgoers can climb over them. One of the first rides is apparently the new "Take Off". This ride does what most don't, it flips its passengers completely around it's axle even while the protruding seat extensions revolve 360 degrees. The freefall attraction seems to have made its way back this year. During the night, colorful lights stream from the top of the tower to the ground from four sides. Those streams are barely visible in this picture. Carnies won't miss their opportunities to sell parting gifts for people leaving near the entrance/exit. Here's a shot of the midway. The tent on the right is the arcade. Unfortunately, all my photos (and with that my entire night report) went corrupted during its transfer to the website. I'm afraid pictures from the inside will have to wait for next year. At the back of the fair, Xtreme is visible queuing riders. The skyscraper in town looms over the festivities. Imagine the view from there. Crazy Dance failed to open with the event unfortunately. It was closed during the first half hour of the day. Being next to Crazy Dance, Take Off suffered the consequences from the lack of visitors in that area of the fair. Still gave rides to the few people that queued however. This ride is one of the craziest and most painful rides I've ever ridden at the fair. I personally think the pain is worth it however. Xtreme giving riders a whorl. The entrance to the arcade. Again, I heavily apologize for the lack of in building shots. The kiddie rides surprisingly really lacked kids during the morning hours A view back at the midway. As midday arrived, so did the majority of the town. The late opening of Crazy Dance seemed to have affected the crowd's perception of it to limit its line like that. Shot toward the front of the fair from the back. During the end of my visit, I decided to bring my camera with me on the freefall and snap away at the top. I present the back of the carnival. Perfectly timed shot. Just because the fair took over doesn't mean guests can't access the bleachers to picnic! This concludes my report of the fair. As mentioned, I did come back after the sun sunk but, after frustratingly trying to recover them, my pictures of that night got corrupted. I'm normally not a fair guy, but I thought I'd report this fair to change up this blog's content a little bit. I'll be reporting soon of Six Flags in the coming months. Stay tuned!
  4. Yeah it's horrid! Tatsu is on it's way there too I thought it was already there.
  5. I'm pretty sure it's the latter, seriously, why aren't people flipping their shit? We're gonna finally have friggin ejector airtime in California!!
  6. 1. How do you most often watch videos? (DVD, Blu-Ray, Digital Download, Streaming.) 2. What streaming services do you use the most? 3. How many DVDs or Blu-Rays do you buy a year on average? 4. Do you use a device like Apple TV, Roku, or Chromecast? 5. How much do you watch videos on YouTube versus all the mediums listed in the poll? Thanks for the feedback! --Robb 1. I watch little of videos let alone full length movies. When I do, I usually watch them on youtube or digitally download them 2. Youtube, that is all 3. Maybe like, 0.5 a year 4. No 5. Given a ratio between time spent on youtube and other sources, I'd give it a 5:1 Yea, I'm not that big on watching movies at home
  7. Guilty ...you get annoyed whenever someone calls a vertical loop a "loop-de-loop". You might be a coaster nerd if you wince and become annoyed when people call every inversion a loop.
  8. 100+x3=2007 I'm gonna try my hand and attempt to decipher this. First, I'm going to assume that the 100+ is stating that the new attraction will reach over 100mph Then, After solving 100 x 3, we get 300. Given this, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that it's a giga coaster that goes over 100mph. Btw, Nice job with this storytelling!
  9. I don't think the name was bad or was the reason we nicknamed it, I think it was the way it was presented that encouraged us to dub it as "Yolocoaster".
  10. I was basically using a wing coaster as an example of another cheap installation like Yolo-coaster. I personally believe it's gonna be the Iron-horse treatment.
  11. I honestly think the audience that MM targets will eat wing coasters up. Remember, most of their customers are not coaster enthusiasts and are not aware of any potential this project can unleash. In fact, I'm willing to bet most of them don't even know what a Rocky Mountain conversion is. I agree with you here. Also, I don't understand the attitude that Goooose has where it's a Rocky Mountain conversion or a wing rider. Why not something else? The better part of me believes that a water park expansion is highly probable. Or, why not something totally outlandish? Here's some speculation of my own: Imagine the park building a new front entrance over that way. It's centrally located in the parking lot and there would be more then enough room for a massive renovation to build a whole new front entrance. Then, they take out the old front entrance to the park which is located way out of the way now, take down the old structures, and build a new major roller coaster over there, by the YOLOcoaster plaza. A serious park restructuring for the better, a larger water park, and a new roller coaster. That would be exciting to me. I think the wing coaster suggestion was merely an example of another cheap and gimmicky coaster. But, as much as I love the thought of Six Flags constructing a new entrance, I believe its very unlikely at the moment. I mean, they just recently installed those biometric finger scanners at the original entrance.
  12. I honestly think the audience that MM targets will eat wing coasters up. Remember, most of their customers are not coaster enthusiasts and are not aware of any potential this project can unleash. In fact, I'm willing to bet most of them don't even know what a Rocky Mountain conversion is. That's fine. The general public in no market is more informed than another about ride types or manufacturers, but there is an enthusiast population that speaks on behalf of them, and whose voices are heard loud and clear by park planners, ride designers, etc. Look at all the FREE consulting advice we give parks on these message boards and other similar websites on a daily basis. Parks can look at this form of public opinion as well as toward previous cases to inform decision-making. The park knows that they can knock the ball out of the park with an RMC based on the success stories so far in Texas. Okay, I see where you're coming from. MM has a history of prefering quantity over quality and tends to build for the titles. Yes, there will be an out cry if our RMC theories are false (I highly doubt this though). But if they did went ahead and actually demolished Colossus for another gimmicky coaster, it will still attract their targeted crowd and in turn make a profit. Us enthusiasts can kick and squal all we want, but we will eventually head on out and try the new ride ourselves (well, most of us anyways ). Will this strategy accumulate more money than the RMC? Of course not. But it will pay well if the new addition was cheap enough. Not only that, two coasters can probably fit in Colossus' space with this stragtegy.
