  1. I of course meant no disrespect to Six Flags or my fellow coaster fans. I just felt the ride could stand up to current standards on its own without any help. Yes, the ride takes up a LOT of square feet compared to more modern coasters but if space was an issue I really don't think with modern design technology a new ride (coaster or not) could be fit into the space available adding thrill to both the classic coaster and the new ride at the same time as has been done in many of circumstances over and over again at Six Flag parks and many non-SF parks. Take that classic ride and toss in a new coaster or flat ride mixed into the original rides track footprint and add a new thrill to the old ride along with an enhanced thrill to the new ride. I love SFMM, only been able to visit twice since 2009 but honestly compared to my local Ohio parks it was (both times) a magical, thrilling and super fun experience. So looking forward to visiting again soon. Nothing against KI, KK, DW, KW or CP but year after year it they ALL get old fast. I am sure those who live in the LA area feel the same way about Disney, Knotts and SFMM. I and and anyone like me who lives so close to so many theme parks who is so spoiled compared to those (lets say those in the Denver area) who have next to nothing yet here I am bitching about a theme park 1000's of miles away and that I have only visited twice. I REALLY should shut up now and stop being a whining coaster fan. Sorry for being such an idiot. This is why I don't comment much in the TPR forums. I really should just be quiet and go away.
  2. I'm sorry but there was NOTHING wrong with this ride to begin with. It was what is was. A fantastic RETRO ride. Fast, smooth (enough) and simply FUN to ride over and over again. New paint was enough. The VTR is NOT needed and I do not want anything to do with it.
  3. I posted the comment below on Robbs video for Lightening Run and decided to go ahead and post it here. While at the park I was discussing if I should (and wondered if I really wanted to) describe my day at KK and at the time decided not to do so but after spending a few hours on YouTube enjpying TPR vidoes and having the video of Lightening Run show up as something I should watch I decided to speak up about how bad my day was at Kentucky Kingdom. It was years before Six Flags closed the park after I had a bad day there, it has be 2 years (I think) since the park reopened without Six Flags and it still was a bad experience. It will be MANY years before I bother to try again! "Was at KK yesterday (07/16/15) and while this coaster was super FUN to ride the park itself was a non-FUN experience. Single trains on all the coasters, waits as longs an hour for rides that should have been less than 15 minutes if being used to their full capacity or simply if the people running the rides actually cared about the guest experience and made the effort to try and speed things up. I hated this park when it was Six Flags and honestly don't have anything nice to say about it now! Horrible is the best way to describe it." edit... I could have used my ClubTPR discount when buying tickets online it would have saved me and extra $20.00 for the 2 of us but decided not to, figured the already discounted online price was good enough and just bought the tickets. My mistake! After spending the day at the park the $20.00 I could have saved still would not have made up for the how ridiculous the park operations were.
  4. Super happy to see the Demon coaster in your park. I know... Arrows suck. But I love'em in this game and in real life. Very nice layout you have designed for the coaster. It is hard to make a good looking Arrow in this game and you did it very well. You captured all the quirkiness of a real Arrow. Unnecessary straight flat sections, unnatural flow from one element to the next and just generally bad pre computer aided design weirdness. Love it!
  5. ^ I agree about the trees. Too much of a good thing. Then again I kind of like the mystery of what is really down there that they project when viewed in certain pictures. Makes me want to go walking through the woods and see what I can find. Its the kind of park I would spend hours in just looking at the map without removing scenery, ride a few rides then either remove the trees so I can finally see everything or just leave the mystery alone and close the game. Just happy to have enjoyed what I did see. LOL, did that make any sense at all?
  6. These days I don't think I have any guilty pleasure rides but many years ago I did. Probably the only person in the world who actually liked Son Of Beast (loop version) and honestly have missed it ever since the loop was removed. It was my guilty pleasure ride, the ride I would sneak off and ride a few times when I visited Kings Island since I already knew nobody I was there with would ride it with me. After the loop was removed and the coaster trains changed I still road it every once in a while but I pretty much gave up on sneaking off to ride it. But thanks to Robb I still get to ride it on YouTube. Thank you Robb.
  7. Well... it is your fault this game has been fired up again after all these years and your fault that my work productivity is down 80%. Thanks! So do I, Nice work there, long time no see my old friend. Been messing around in the first scenario of RCT2. Nothing special and have no desire to do so. Just playing and having a bit of fun... NCS, no wide paths that confuse the guests (once the park is open), no hacking other than clearance issues. Simply my favorite way to play the game. I am trying to keep the look of the original Crazy Castle park when you first open it and just make improvements. The entrance castle is almost as it was. A minor move of one tower 1 square over making it centered, the walls that once held path around the outside of the park now hold a monorail, the empty tower to the right when you enter the park has been slightly redesigned and also now has a function. Just little things here and there to fix the flaws I felt were in the scenarios basic structures. The altered entrance to Crazy Castle, centered with a monorail station and viewing tower added. A moat has also been installed all the way around the castle walls with a boat ride layout. Not sure what kind of vehicles will be used yet. Freefall rides now inside the odd little castle structure to the right of the entrance in the original scenario. Food stalls and some super crazy path work are also inside. The structure located in the back of the original park now has a monorail station inside and the stations for the parks first coaster(s). Much work still needs to be done to repair the original building and finish the coaster. Also in the photo are the on-ride photos for the coasters in the next picture. They are located at the end of the launch just before the first hill. The first set of inversions on the coaster under construction. This will be a floorless, launched and dueling coaster.
  8. Carl's Jr. & Hardees Rallies, Checkers White Castle, Krystal All of these are the same company just sold under different names in different regions of the U.S. What other chains are using the same kinds of tactics selling their food?
  9. True! The person below me has at least thought about going gay at least once.
  10. OK, let me start with a simple WOW. This topic should be pinned as an example of how to showcase RCT. Outstanding in every way possible. Pictures, videos, downloads. Fantastic. This has got to be one of the most professional looking topics EVER! Your designs are awesome, your themes for them are perfect and the way you have presented them here is on a level I have never had the privilege to view before in these forums. Thank you so much for your time and effort. - Daniel
  11. Could not disagree more about uninstalling the expansion packs. There is absolutely nothing wrong with using them, there are lots of great themed rides in those packs. The scenery is pretty bad but most of the ride styles are not. From what pictures I could see you are for the most part building your scenery with mostly non-expansion RCT2 objects with only a few expansion pack items for added effect and that is a good thing in terms of learning how to build. I guess what I am trying to say is... If you are building to please others then by all means remove the expansion packs but if you are building simply to enjoy the game (as I hope you are) screw those who can't view your park or are too lazy to simply swap out their ObjData files. I used to keep 3 versions of that file on my computer. One with factory RCT2, one with RCT2 + WW & TT and one with RCT2 + custom content. It only took a few minutes to change from one to another. There was nothing I couldn't view. Sorry coasterbill if my comment comes off harshly directed to you personally that is not my intent. Best wishes on the completion of your first park. You are off to a good start and if you continue I am sure your building techniques will improve. It is alway fun to watch a new player build a first park and see how their style grows over time.
  12. Great park, really enjoyed coming into TPR today and looking at this topic from page one. Honestly I skipped most of the commentary (sorry). But I did read enough to know you are working without trainers, it's a timeline park and so on. I found it odd that once the mid 1980's hit a few on-ride photos didn't start appearing on select rides and as the years went by were not added to more rides. They are huge money makers for parks and I am sure a park like yours could use a few to help with the money flow. Great job so far, I will be checking back to see how this ends. Best wishes and thanks for putting a smile on my face today. - Daniel
  13. On the "both" side of things but with a HEAVY lean towards the Park Index. I often miss reports in the forums but have spent hours digging around in the Park Index and loved every minute of it. It is the one place where I know I can find what I am wanting to see, find it quickly and not have to dig through post after post from other members about how much they love or hate Millennium Force while looking for parts 2 or 3 of the Trip Report.
  14. Yes on the spell check issue. Apparently I cannot spell the word "word" right.
