Hi everyone! it's me!

 

I am recreating Astroworld and I might release it as a public server. This is my first time building a theme park in minecraft.

 

one request: Can you guys PM me stuff like photos of Astroworld, Mods, Instructions on how to build the rides?

In return, I'll create a wall in the park and your TPR username will be on it.

 

To start off, here's what I have so far:

I already started work on the Texas Cyclone and the Astroworld Resource Pack

Wow! I myself am making Kings Dominion and Kings Island in minecraft. I would suggest that if you are making it on a server then get the traincarts plugin, with that minecarts can go on ladders and rails. Also you should use google earth for measurements and stuff, it'll help a lot.

thanks. note: it's not easy recreating a park that was demolished 10 years ago

Very nice! Dosen't matter how you recreate this! This looks just as good as anything but I really hope to see you recreate the beloved Schwarzkopf's, & here is a couple of photos of my Favorite Texas Cyclone!

By the way, I would suggest making wooden coaster supports with stairs instead of fences. So that it looks something like this:

That's Rebel Yell at kings dominion that I am making, and the stairs definitely look better than fences on it for me.

I'll consider that for next time. I need help finding a Google Earth Astroworld photo and a good photo of TC's queue and station

Hi everyone! Just to let you know, whenever I am out and I can't access Minecraft PC and I get an idea, I do Minecraft PE.

I was on the road yesterday when I came up with the idea on how to build Greezed Lightnin'! You guys are more than welcome to copy my design, but please note that it's still in the prototype stage. I hope you like it

The loop. I wish Mojang would make upside down track

My launch system. It works the way I imagined it! And it doesn't need redstone at all!

The station. Note how there's no detector rail above the button level.

No problem just take your time as other people should, & yeah I'm still unhappy about Astroworld being gone, & Houston is just a Trashy place to e in right now, but at least we have Kemah, & the Pleasure Pier which is far outside of Houston!

I'm officially reviving this project!

 

Let me say that I learned a LOT about building realistic coaster in minecraft since the last time I posted in this thread.

This is horrible looking. I hate it

 

I built on a theme park server since 2016 and I have since developed a technique for recreating coasters and parks in minecraft. You may have seen my Hard Rock Park recreation project. Here's how I recreated Hard Rock Park accurately in minecraft:

 

I came up with the idea to pull the park off of google earth, put it into Microsoft paint, and outline the park, creating a pixel map. I have it to where 1 pixel = 1 block.

 

HardRockParkPixelMap.PNG.5a60fef11ed83a69c8f9bd25a4368a8a.PNG

Please excuse the clusterf*ck of colors

 

After I finish a section of the pixel map, I go ahead and copy it into minecraft:

Hard Rock Park pixel map in minecraft

 

And after a lot of reference photos, interviews, and patience later:

Hard Rock Park in all of its blocky glory

 

So what does my Hard Rock Park minecraft recreation have to do with Six Flags Astroworld? In case it wasn't obvious, I'm recreating it the exact same way that I recreated Hard Rock Park.

 

SixFlagsAstroworld.thumb.png.0c18b02f65cdf03eb0199bb1968a27c7.png

My Astroworld pixel map so far.

 

As an added bonus, when I recreated Hard Rock Park, I learned a lot of facts about the park that I didn't even notice until I was building it. That means I will learn a lot of interesting details about Astroworld, which I will share will you all in a new post.

 

I can't do this alone though, I will need a little help with this project. I'm asking that if you or anyone you know have been to Astroworld, please PM me, as I do have some questions that only someone who actually visited the park will be able to answer.

 

I look forward to all of your support, and updating this thread in the future!

Interesting facts I learned about Astroworld part 1:

XLR-8 had a weird ass queue

 

Looking at the aerial view of XLR-8, I found that it has just a straightforward queue. There's no switchbacks or anything.

 

xlr81.PNG.5ad7f397dc1bfa6026e2bcade7784468.PNG

 

If you don't believe me and thought I hid the real queue under the pixel map I'm working on, here's another photo of the queue.

 

xlr82.PNG.5950c925755a209749c892bcc201733f.PNG

 

Whats also weird is the exit path. From this screenshot of the backwards POV of XLR-8, The transfer track goes over the exit path. The gates are clearly meant to let the trains pass through into the transfer track.

 

xlr83.PNG.1ad1083e60552ab636e9e47fc216f333.PNG

 

I heard a rumor that XLR-8 was originally supposed to be part of the Six Flags ride rotation program, which would actually make sense as to why they would make these weird design choices. It was meant to be temporary until it was relocated. It would also explain the tent like station the coaster had too.

I'm having a little bit of a roadblock at the moment.

 

I'm outlining Batman the Escape on my pixel map, and I cannot find the entrance for the queue.

 

bte1.PNG.301c3462cf6beabb49f4b22d34e557e5.PNG

 

I know you go through the mountain and over a bridge to reach Batman the Escape.

 

bte2.PNG.7ce92af0f335615ed46eefeda73051eb.PNG

 

Here's an aerial view of the area in front of the bridge and batcave.

 

bte3.PNG.fc546ebfc27d474b745defcce5754db1.PNG

 

I located the queue, but I cannot locate where it starts.

 

If you been to Astroworld, or know anyone who has been to Astroworld, can you please help point out where the queue for Batman the Escape starts, and confirm that the ramp under the bridge is the exit?

 

Thank you in advance.

 

By the way, anyone happen to know where in Astroworld this building is located?
