Cardinal Lake Amusement Park- Download page 6!

Recommended Posts

I know I've had many parks I abandoned. Mainly due to lack of support. So I'd really appreciate some comments! Onto story...


Good Morning Raleigh! You are listening to your favorite news station. It is March 3, 1995 and expect to see clear skies throughout today!


We just heard that a new amusement park may be heading our way by 1997. We had an interview with the park proposer Tom Locke.


Why are you planning on building this amusement park Tom?

Tom: Because I think the city of Raleigh and Durham deserves a local amusement park, and I am hoping that everyone comes out on opening day!

When do you expect the park will open?

Tom: I am hoping to get the park up and running by summer of 1997, and if not by 1998.

Can you tell us anything about the park?

Tom: Yes. All I can say is that the park will feature two roller coasters. That is all I can say...

Alright Tom we wish you the best of luck and hoping to see this amusement park open soon.

Tom: Thanks


One month later.... Hello everyone my name is Rich and I am a construction worker for the new Raleigh amusement park. Each month I will update you guys on construction on this park, so here we go.


April 16th, 1995. We finished the road leading up to the park!


April 22nd, 1995. The parking booths were completed.


April 30th, 1995. The parking lot was finally finished! Stay tuned for more... I'm a bit rusty at the game since I haven't played in a while. So comments please!

I know I would not name my park that for one simple reason....hmmm isn't there already a park called Six Flags South Carolina? I would not want my work to be compared to a god of RCT3 like CD5.


As for names, I would go towards more classic style names, such as Belmont Park, or Elitch Gardens, or something to a similar effect. Lokks great so far, can't wait to see what the park has in store roller coaster wise...

KQCA Raleigh News: July 30th, 1995. 1:32 PM

Cardinal Lake Amusement Park announces it's first themed area, Colonial America! Park owner Tom Locke states,

"The new area will be located right off of Main Street, I guess you could call it an expansion of main street? But all

the buildings will be patriotic, and it will feature 3 rides. But I can't tell you about that yet." Again the park is expected

to open by 1997 and Tom is hoping it will be a success. We'll keep you updated on news from this park.

Cardinal Lake announces The Bayou!


Welcome to Shantytown, Louisiana! Population 1,019. This was once a vibrant, small and bustling coal mining town along the swampy bayou.

But not everything has a good end, this city was plagued by many unsolved and mysterious murders and fires. The town was abandoned in the 1930's.

Today it is one of the most haunted places in all of Louisiana as many unrestful spirits aside now. There are also cases of voodoo rituals taken place here,

Now it is coming to Cardinal Lake, so enter at your own risk, and don't be afraid.... Of the Bayou.


The park's coaster! Voodoo!



Construction will take place alongside Colonial America... Stay tuned
