TPR Challenge: Shady Glen Park [RCT 3]

Recommended Posts

Good day to everyone,

 

I've been very busy this summer, and come across some really nifty things, including my latest purchase. Since everyone did so well with trying new things, I decided to see if I could get a real bargain- and I almost succeeded. Almost

 

Shady Glen Park Challenge- in 3D!

 

Shady Glen park originally started as a fruit farm, but when the original owners failed to grow apples & oranges, they began to cut down trees- and ended up turning the lumber into The Streak- their wooden coaster. The park was a bit successful as a picnic grove, but failed to gain the attention that it needed to grow and expand.

 

In the past few years, the park itself has begun a slow decay. The former owners offered me a decent price for it, and I took them up on the offer. I now have Buyer's Remorse!

A small overview of the park itself.

 

As you can see, the park is a bit crowded with trees... and lots of them! I love this feature myself.

 

THE CHALLENGE:

 

In this challenge, you must complete the scenario- all three levels- and turn the park around completely. I do, of course, have a few things I'd like to set down as ground rules:

 

1.) You may not remove, modify, or change the wooden coaster, The Streak, in any way. No changes may occur to how it operates, either. This fine gem of a coaster is something that I think should be a cornerstone to the new park.

The Streak- oh how I love this coaster!

 

2.) You may not obliterate all the trees. In fact, if I see that you've clear-cut the trees, you will not be eligible for the prize in this challenge. Removing one or two here or there is fine, and you may ALWAYS add more trees (Hint, hint.). I like the feel of this being a grove of trees, and that the people like that.

3.) No large-scale coasters. No coaster may exceed 100 feet in height, nor more than 3,000 ft. in length. If you choose to make a steel coaster, no more than TWO inversions may be used, and those can only be vertical loops.

4.) No large-scale buildings: You may build small buildings that cover a plot of ground no bigger than 4x4 in space- and you may not link them together. Again, this is a small, family picnic grove becoming a park, not a Six Flags/Cedar Fair property.

5.) You MAY move rides within the park- I put in three rides to make sure there would be other draws for families there. Those are yours to keep- and use as you need. The rides, however, may not be removed from the park.

6.) I'm giving you till the end of October, year 10 to finish the park. Any parks after that won't be eligible for the prize.

Some hints:

 

The key to keeping me happy- and you in the running for the prize is keeping the original feel and design of the park true to it's form. Some ideas are:

 

1.) Think small, and carry on: This park isn't the biggest, but could use some love in the form of small, family-friendly rides. Think along the lines of Knoebel's or Strickler's Grove. Those parks are perfect for what I'm looking for.

2.) Don't overthink things: Remove a tree, replace it. That way you don't have to lose out in the end. Trees = happy park owner.

3.) Think outside the box: Generic coasters won't cut it here. You have plenty of space, and lots of land to work with. Use the land wisely, and try something different. A clone of an existing coaster isn't quite what I have in mind, so be original and creative.

4.) Pay attention to your expenses: They DO add up. I've given you some great rides to start off with, so make them profitable, and turn that into what you're building the park with. You do have a debt to pay down, so I suggest working with that first, and then moving onto expansion of the park.

THE RULES & REGULATIONS

 

1.) No cheats, hacks or editing tools are allowed.

2.) No additional scenery will be allowed. I've given you what you are allowed to work with. Go from there. Tracketechture is NOT allowed, so don't do it, folks.

3.) Cheating will be grounds for immediate banning from TPR. No exceptions, no second chances, no returns.

4.) All parks are subject to scrutiny by the judges.

5.) You may not alter, change, warp, or mutilate the scenario or plot of the scenario. This is not a future Cedar Fair, Six Flags or other park company park. This is Shady Glen Park.

6.) All parks should be submitted to the Games Exchange for consideration, as well as being posted in this thread once you're done with it- a link to the exchange in your submission post would also be nice. Pictures ARE required.

7.) Your park must be submitted to the Games Exchange no later that MIDNIGHT PDT 10/1/12. Any late entries will not be qualified for the prize.

 

So, after reading all that it's time for what you've been looking for: The PRIZE

 

The winning park will get a GIANT TPR bag of Crap, as well as their choice of DVD from the TPR DVD selection.

 

How will the parks be judged? That's easy:

 

1.) Keeping the feel of Shady Glen Park: 25%

2.) Creativity in the new rides added: 25%

3.) Keeping within the 'Family Feel' aspect: 25%

4.) Trees retained/added: 25%

 

As you grow your parks, add them to this thread- I'll be dropping by on occasion, and if I see things that I like, I'll be adding comments!

one question: can we add a station and or a tunnel to the wooden coasters, or does that fall under the modification category?

1.) You may not remove, modify, or change the wooden coaster, The Streak, in any way. No changes may occur to how it operates, either. This fine gem of a coaster is something that I think should be a cornerstone to the new park.

And when you say mods, are track re-textures considered mods? I have a feeling yes, but just making sure before I screw with my supports again.

 

What Matt said- and to reiterate:

I have a few questions just to be on the safe side:

 

Is it OK to modify the queue, color, and name of the flat rides?

 

Can we increase the ticket price for the Streak?

 

Can we lengthen the Streak's queue line?

 

EDIT: Thanks R.D.!

1.) If you have to ask the question, I'd say "NO" to it, as you're over-thinking the process a wee bit too much. Remember to KEEP IT SIMPLE & STUPID.

 

2.) Do what you need to, and refer to rule #1.

 

3.) No. Recall Rule #1 of the challenge for that one.
