[RCT3] Six Flags Connecticut Kingdom - The Final Update


Recommended Posts

What ride has (consistently) the longest lines?

I would say Mr. Freeze and Verdugo based on visual queue lengths, but that could easily be due to them both only possessing the ability to run 1 train. (Though for the storyline, I pretend Freeze has 2 ) Another candidate is Zipper, it usually seems to hold one of the longest lines in the park. If you're wondering about the shortest.. not going to lie, a lot of the peeps hate Grand Stand The kiddie rides never seem to rack up a queue either. I use to have nearly 5000 peeps in the park but then I downloaded a "Peep generator" which brought my count down to around 1500, and I can't find any way to fix it, even deleting the generator didn't help. :/ So that's why you usually see half empty trains/ghosttown queues in the pictures

August

 

Shot1447.thumb.png.704dc5d61269dc5b4466258f79540042.png

Unlike my last visit where I was greeted with more than 30 cars a lane at opening, I was only behind 4 today

As fall approaches us, the park is preparing for their annual Fright Fest event

 

Shot1449.thumb.png.f85f222dc931c8838a28a172d8996b3d.png

Here is the plot for Connecticut, supposedly themed around a serial killer running around with a pair of scissors. Seems a bit.. well, dark, for a park event, but I'm sure it'll be interesting, to say the least

 

Shot1450.thumb.png.3d331dd4f3b83694c7ca2672aa2e07a2.png

This one sounds particularly fun

 

Shot1451.thumb.png.3043ce4cd8f8a92eae7a3a8f5264e7f8.png

There better be free confectionaries with this one, otherwise I'm not satisfied trading this with the Hurricane Candy Trail

 

Shot1452.thumb.png.d310f308eeb64d8259a2bea5a6ade55e.png

CT Twister's train has been removed as it prepares to run BACKWARDS for Fright Fest.

 

Shot1453.thumb.png.76c82b4d88adb6fe99e0927666936db2.png

Obviously with the addition of Frontier Fling this year, the graveyard has been moved, though, not too far away. My buddy who works at the park told me 2 NEW gravestones will be added to the collection this year. Let the 2001 speculation begin!

 

Shot1454.thumb.png.09797f06ba3f53bf5549713403d4adea.png

I was also told that there was originally going to be a fourth haunt in Fairgrounds themed after Psycho Clowns, but it was cut due to costs

Americana Morgue will be making it's return to SFCK this year!

 

Shot1456.thumb.png.b237ff72061880f4356c06f9e7ae121e.png

I heard that Verdugo might receive a retheme for Fright Fest

 

Shot1457.thumb.png.9dada075f107f26dae38200c0fcb55f8.png

Same with The Tower of Doom. (Wow! Look at that line!)

 

Shot1458.thumb.png.697048ee5d19b6383835ffa035eca145.png

Looks like a few passengers regretted their decision to ride

 

I unfortunately had to leave early due to work. I'll be back for Labor Day weekend

Mini contest: If anyone can guess the 2 rides being removed the park, you will find out what the new addition(s) for 2001 is/are before everyone else. You do have to guess both right, however, and only 3 pairs of guesses per user.

I'm going to say Verdugo and El Starfish!

If you do take out Grandstand . . . what would you put in it's place? (or would you convert it to a floorless coaster)

 

I'm going to confirm that Grand Stand is not one of the rides being removed.. yet...

 

My guesses are El Starfish and Sky Wheel

Labor Day Weekend

I had to get to the park today knowing it's the last summer weekend we can go

Fright Fest Countdown: 20 Days!

 

Shot1454.thumb.png.74c290cdc730880656df84faad28dbf4.png

I've already purchased my pass for next year! One interesting thing to note - The Pass Perks chart in Guest Relations says that 2001 season passholders get a free cut the line pass to use on next years new "Thrill Ride." I'm excited about the free pass, but I'm guessing this eliminates the possibility of a coaster?

 

Shot1455.thumb.png.2b324935ddcb883f0a9e47b898b85d14.png

I also got a free line-skip pass to use today, so I instinctively used it on Mr. Freeze

 

Shot1456.thumb.png.d6ed90b8b30266e783c3858447541b10.png

Food lines were surprisingly short for Labor Day weekend, but that didn't matter because...

 

Shot1457.thumb.png.63f9cc6018b1ffcee023cff902e70c02.png

... I was invited to a private barbecue at the Picnic Pavilions by my fellow members of SFCKWorld.com!

 

Shot1458.thumb.png.fa3f0ea6237ba16f904c61f6b35c52ae.png

You can get really good views of Dare Devil Dive over here

 

Shot1459.thumb.png.95022af869bc124d443fc4027cf7c660.png

The park even gave us ERT on Haunted Ranch!

 

Shot1460.thumb.png.7ded5e53fc08f0efeff17af3efb1f5a3.png

I was in the mood for a bit of upside-down goodness, so I took Zipper for a spin

Scream Machine's fog misters for Fright Fest are being put in

In honor of Labor Day, various Patriotic themed apparel was being sold throughout the park. Picked me up one of these shirts for $4. Not bad

 

Shot1465.thumb.png.c64f5b60da56ae8a74f19d8f7ed47100.png

Connecticut Twister BACKWARDS began testing while I was at the park today

 

Shot1466.thumb.png.5eae441639b87a51ba9e813a0c15224f.png

It will unfortunately only be able to run 1 train like last time, but I think it's worth it for the thrilling experience.

 

Shot1467.thumb.png.4fb992d28e9c015deecb670fbd328a44.png

Random fact: You're allowed to bring you camera with you on The Tower of Doom as long as you let the ride ops know before hand

Harley Quinn was fun, as usual. Not much else to say about it.

 

Shot1469.thumb.png.8b11c19ade599a6eff0ba21a160c5097.png

The park was doing fireworks over by Hurricane at 9:15, so I made my way over there

 

Shot1470.thumb.png.54920286692677e86591e8e518fa4b5d.png

I spent a good 2 hours marathoning Sky Wheel and Hurricane (This section SERIOUSLY needs a new attraction) before the show commenced.

 

Shot1471.thumb.png.cfff9e0ac47a6303920ca315bfccaa70.png

I couldn't resist one more shot of Hurricane, through the water

I'm afraid that Fright Fest is cancelled, unfortunately. I made multiple attempts over the past couple of days to work on it but my game file keeps crashing. I actually have 3 2000 files - One is my regular file that I've been having trouble opening, another is a new one I created 2 weeks ago that's a back-up for the first, and the last one is a Fright Fest file, which I have been unable to open for a couple of days. I've got a feeling the new for 2000 stuff might've had a bit of an impact on how my parks runs, as I've noticed it has been working a bit buggy since I installed everything for this year, and not to mention the game crashed multiple times when constructing the Picnic Pavilions area.

 

Since I cannot bring you an official Fright Fest update, here are the 3 new gravestones. I originally stated that only 2 rides would be removed, but I've come to a last minute decision to take out Dare Devil Dive after only one year to hopefully help my game to stop crashing. The Picnic area will also be removed, as it seems to be very power-hungry due to all of the custom scenery.

 

El Starfish

 

777141387_ElStarfishgravestone.png.989b25e6823bf13621f20181a0872ece.png

 

El Starfish's removal is cited with it's excessive loss of ridership due to the incident in 1999

 

Harley Quinn's Spinsanity/Delirium

 

deliriumgravestone.png.1c1d9b69c242dabee9f034f70545cbdb.png

 

Harley Quinn is being removed to make room for the 2001 addition. You're probably wondering why I used it's original name on the gravestone.. well, you'll have to wait to find out

 

And of course, Dare Devil Dive

 

1696621462_DareDevilDiveGravestone.png.646a5a9723669b1d99c92e7a209d908c.png

 

Nobody guessed Harley Quinn's Spinsanity, so the 2001 ride is under the wraps

 

Shot1391.thumb.png.f20b556e3da0f09c068def88b385aa4e.png

 

I'll be releasing a hint or two until the park begins it's 2001 season, feel free and try and guess what the new attraction is, though I will not confirm anything until I post the first update

2001 Opening Day

I was amongst the first to arrive at Connecticut Kingdom for the 2001 season

Already done!

Something looks different here..

It looks pretty intimidating up close

 

Shot1483.thumb.png.ec3f44f9fe31a950ba4f65163c849c7e.png

However, it was acting up in the morning preventing me from getting a ride until later in the day

 

Shot1484.thumb.png.9c91661a212bf9b9d6dc3e843a9f0ab2.png

I headed across the midway for a quick lap on Freeze

Taken from the top hat stall, here's all that remains of Picnic Pavilions.

 

Shot1486.thumb.png.82823dd9aa5c16982783d1d945788704.png

El Starfish's old sign now sports the park's new logo. The rainbow colors do look pretty nice, to be honest

 

Shot1487.thumb.png.25c9588422d7f3fd80a59cedcbc3a79a.png

Grand Stand had no line as per the usual so it was my next stop

This was the only picture of the show I got (Two girls dancing to Elvis) but I thought it was pretty good. The atmosphere was great and so was the music. Would see again

My friend Jarred told me about the "Golden Row" on Scream Machine (Row 7) so I took his advice and went for a ride on it

 

Shot1492.thumb.png.19c025a3717833427526e11f325c6a79.png

Well, it was the smoothest for sure, but that's not really saying much.

Lucky guest got a zen ride on Ship Dip

While on Connecticut Twister I noticed Catwoman completing test runs

 

Shot1495.thumb.png.2cab65919d44abae75fc082c0ff8c02c.png

I nearly trampled a family with a stroller, but I ended up being one of the first people in line for the first public ride on it ever

 

Shot1496.thumb.png.4d38c03aaff575f04482b9e4c5f734b3.png

The seats were fairly comfortable

I enjoyed it, but the woman next to me threw up. Guess it depends on the person. 8/10

May

Went to the park for a couple of hours today

 

Shot1479.thumb.png.f843c5f39dadf9356af319f60bb89b06.png

Figuring crowds would take over Catwoman's Whip quickly, I made a mad dash for it at the rope drop

 

Shot1480.thumb.png.54c43fe7b28f31fbd2a27fcd4dfc979a.png

It was closed for maintenance... of course

 

Shot1481.thumb.png.8d2feb5d166ca7073d4f07cca68981a6.png

Knowing that it would probably be open within a half an hour, I hung around and killed some time in the Gotham City Arcade

 

Shot1482.thumb.png.7093c247e37132ef7e38fd3aab2c31a5.png

Joust is probably my favorite game here

 

Shot1483.thumb.png.d5cdf2cca11d903a5223bc65162393ad.png

I walked out of the arcade to see the security guard unchaining the queue so I rushed to make it on the first cycle of the day

Disorienting delightment! Lol

 

Shot1485.thumb.png.0e43890aed0d3c3fad0871a46b38ce50.png

An hour and a half into the park opening, Hurricane's line was still empty (That side of the park never seems to get much traffic), so I went for a ride

 

Shot1486.thumb.png.4103630725ec72acb3c777d5b9bba51b.png

Connecticut Twister really looks nice from over here

 

Shot1487.thumb.png.c841dea4f738ba4c8f7fe48bfbe25816.png

I've always liked the architecture of The Lost Rapids's station.

 

Shot1488.thumb.png.87096c43a228fd6817526596dd1cbab9.png

Some new scenery appears to have been added to the ride

 

Shot1489.thumb.png.c0f1b30dc52859d06dcc777bed5335da.png

I love how Hurricane towers over the ride

 

Shot1490.thumb.png.0db5faf7ea5125e64437eebc09acc05a.png

The paint on the tables outside Orleans Grille really seems to have faded badly

 

Shot1491.thumb.png.8843982bfd6c2de88178bb2ae08a001f.png

In fact, this entire side of Pontchartrain Bay looks miserable...

 

Shot1492.thumb.png.d7fb09fd1fc2300e417f233a06954eee.png

...really odd considering they are in the same area of the park as Hurricane, Sky Wheel, and The Lost Rapids, which seem to be three of the park's most well-maintained attractions

Though it may not be as smooth as it was back in 1996, Verdugo's boomerang is still one of the most intense elements in the park

 

Shot1497.thumb.png.e9196a291b31a5d79c2a93ca1f4e4f89.png

I got this cool shot of Grand Stand (Captured from Bedrock Boulder Roller) before heading out.
