Six Flags Florida Escape

Feel free to right any comments. If you want to see videos of rides serach goldiehound on youtube and go to the channel.

It is November, 1973 and Orlando, Florida is getting a new theme park by Six Flags.

The park is going to be called Six Flags Florida Escape.

As you can see, a parachute tower is completed.

Shot0342.bmp

The station looks very nice along with the brick borders.

Shot0343.bmp

I think the entrance looks very nice.

Shot0344.bmp

The seahorse fountain looks nice.

Shot0345.bmp

The waterfall by the parking lot looks cool except I don’t know why they need the fencing.

Shot0346.bmp

Signage has yet to be put up.

 

I think the park is making good progress for the opening in 1974.

It is January 1974, and the park is coming along nicely.

 

Shot0349.bmp

A log flume, a train ride and a tilt-a-whirl have been added.

Shot0348.bmp

A small antique car ride is now at the park.

Shot0262.bmp

And the Runaway Mine Train roller coaster.

I think the park will be ready for opening day.

Add some scenery to that coaster. It looks very bland without it. Also, buildings need more detail than a huge box. I want to see more buildings from this park. Variety of land is also a good idea. An entire park is not green. Put some colors in there and put different color and sizes of trees.

 

A week is probably a good idea to spend on the park before providing an update. It allows you to look at what you have and see how you can improve. What I see from this park is no effort. I just see random rides planted at random places without rhyme or reason.

 

This park has potential, but I must be shown effort in order to give a more positive review. Don't be discouraged and keep at it. I am not trying to be mean, but I want to see what you can dish out when given not having this park updated every five minutes.

 

simaticable

 

Edit: 200th post!

The park is farther along with trees and paths. The park is almost ready for opening day in my game.

The P.O.V. for the Runaway Mine Train is up on youtube just serach Six Flags Florida Escape. I'm using old pictures now.

Or...you could just embed it in the thread so everyone could see it...maybe?

 

Park's not looking half bad by the way, certainly has a better start than some Six Flags parks have on the boards. I'd agree with the poster above me who said the mine train needs more scenery though, it is looking rather barren at this point.

Done!

 

You should change the title of that video, "Florida" is spelled wrong there as well.

Uh, when I embedded that video, it most certainly had "Six Flags Flordia Escape" in the title, because when I searched Six Flags Florida Escape it didn't come up. Don't give me that crap.

 

Also, please address all three issues in a single post, rather than triple-posting to get your park bumped up.

 

This thread is just a few seconds away from being locked.

What would you want to see in the park for opening. Give me some ideas for restaurants.

Come on, I'm sure you can think of at least one restaurant idea yourself!

 

If you're really stuck though, go look up some info on Six Flags parks in the 1970's and see what they actually did. After all, if you're gonna build a 70's Six Flags park. at least be somewhat historically accurate to what the parks did at the time, otherwise your timeline just serves as a frame for your posts and does nothing but hinder.

It is two weeks from opening day. A lot of rides have come to the park since when I last came in Janurary.

Starting to look fairly good now! Looking forward to seeing the park expand!

 

All I'd suggest now is a bit more varying terrain (the park is, as of now, somewhat flat) and maybe a few covers for the queue lines (it is Florida after all, in the real world it'd get mighty hot).

Just throwing this out there, but the original three Six Flags parks were based off of the "six flags" that flew over each state that a park was located in. the themes really aren't as generic as they are today.

 

If you're going for an Orlando area theme, I'd recommend adding some palm trees/trees found in that area of the world.

 

While the park is an OK start, it would really benefit from doing research. The parachute/flume/mine train combo is pretty spot on so far.

I knew there was something else I wanted to mention, and you nailed it. Both of these are excellent points.

The park name doesn't seem like you came up with it yourself. Sounds like you took out the word "Great" and threw in "Six Flags", for example my last park, "Florida's Great Escape". I know i'm not working on that park anymore but, come on. Any ways, your park doesn't fit the Six Flags name. Also take a shot at custom scenery, unless you're making this a non cs park. Another tip is, try taking pictures at different angles. Adds a ton of realism.

David Walsh does work. Open your park, then after a peep enters the park change their name to David Walsh. After you've done that, hit Control U. (Or what ever the key it is on a pc, I'm on a mac. But I believe it is the control key on a pc)
