[RCT3] Darien Lake 1997 Recreation

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!


I started this rather challenging project a few months ago for fans of Darien Lake and RCT3. The challenging part was finding pictures of Darien Lake from 1997 to work with, but all that I could find was a park map from 1997 and a picture of the Cascade Canyon water slides from 1993.


Now I must warn you guys that there are some inaccuracies, but I tried to make the best I could without any CSO and using only what's in the game. Also ignore the user interface. So enough with the talk and now on to the pictures.



What better place to start than at the park's entrance.

Corn Popper and UFO.bmp

Now this maybe wrong, but I know in real life Darien Lake never had an octopus ride or a Chance Chaos ride, but it's the Corn Popper and UFO respectively
