[RCT2] Astroverse Theme Park

Recommended Posts

Before this begins: To anyone who did follow Expoland, I apologize for the stop of updates and all, right after the last update came out we had a family incident and my grandmother went into surgery and all after Christmas, she's doing fine and all, and I felt it would be awkward to just restart again after months of hiatus due to family; so decided to revive another older park from 2014 that was meant to be this huge thing that failed, so thought why not reuse its name. I also promise this time, no ugly pink paths


The Year: 1983

Welcome to Astroverse, Jackson's favorite amusement park, located out in the hilly regions on the outskirts of suburbia, this Midway formatted amusement park brings pleasant joy to visitors and locals alike, with low ticket prices, quality rides and food; Astroverse is your premier destination of Dixie's Land of Thrills! We look today at the opening day of Astroverse; owned by the locally owned Astroverse Entertainment Company and it's owners, Earl J. Anderson and business partner Milton Owens.


The entrance of the park here on opening day we see that the park is hopefully going to gather and get rather busy for the park's first day!


Another view of the front of the park's midway, doesn't seem as quite, busy as expected.. maybe the central area of the Midway?


Why no, it seems to have even less people! We'd imagine at least the skydiver would be having a ride right now! Maybe the end of the midway, it does have more rides?


Well, at least the Enterprise is operating, and is that a rider on the Octopus? Only one, shame. Where can everyone be at?


Well, The Switchback roller coaster seems to be jam packed with people, is that where everyone is, to ride above the trees?


Well, the park did say that they were hoping to add more rides but the main focus was to get most of the Midway done, maybe then more visitors can be drawn into the park instead of shopping, Jackson Zoo or something else? Now, it can be recalled that the park was talking about something to deal with water to come in the future, maybe a water ride or even a water park expansion? Would help with the summers in Jackson!


Only time can tell, see you next time at Astroverse!

The trains on the wood coaster are awful (lose the Time Twisters crap) but otherwise this is very atmospheric. Nice work.


G Force:

That coaster is pretty nice, but yea I'd ditch the time twister trains.


Facades on the mainstreet are good too, please continue!


Yeah, I know they are honestly terrible, I purposely choose them to be the crud ones, I went as far as to find a six seat version on NeDesigns for them for the purpose of the park's story as they despite being coaster trains will play a element later on.



1984: Phase Two of the Three Year Grand-Opening Plan


Welcome back to Astroverse! It's Opening Day of 1984, and Phase Two of the Grand Opening plan has completed!


We finally can see the back part of the Midway has finally gathered crowds to ride the thrill seeking rides!


Also introducing; The Shoot-The-Chutes! A water ride that plunges riders from 60 feet onto water! Good for those dog days in the summer!


Right across from it, is the Nifty Diner, a diner featuring outdoor seating, hamburgers, pizza, tea, soft drinks and more! It's a nifty place for the rain, or to beat the sun! As well as added is an addition to the Dixie Theatre, which to mask it they built the back part of the addition with facade buildings to give the Nifty Diner some company and appear more dense!

The theatre is also happy to announce the park's mascot to start appearing at the Dixie Theatre in his own shows! Colonel Rouser

A Confederate colonel, and his two shows at the theatre, "Dixie Land, We're Coming Home!" and "Bonnie Blue Fireball." It will feature Colonel Rouser, and his friends on adventures, such as with "Dixie Land, We're Coming Home!", the Colonel and his friends travel across Yankee territory to attempt to make it back to Astroverse in time for park opening! Stopping in New York City, and more on his wacky adventure to return. With "Bonnie Blue Fireball", Colonel Rouser and his regiment fight off a army trying to take over the city, using his wits, some wacky slap-stick, and friends, he will overcome his enemy and save Jackson to fall to the blue army!

(Note: Please, like don't get offended by this, this is for sake of the story)

You notice the Observatory when going to the other side of the Shoots, the empty land that sits near the entrance behind it will serve as the area to complete Phase Three of the three year Grand-Opening plan, promised to feature more thrills for the small park to help make it a regional destination for any local and tourist to Jackson.


You as well notice a new deal was signed with Coca Cola to create Coca Cola stands throughout the park in the coming years, the first one installed where, there's hardly anything until Phase Three is completed


But, there is at least a generic Wild Maus ride for the family, a cheap roller coaster, but also a thrill experience for the children, parents, and grandparents to enjoy at the park.


See you in 1985 here at Astroverse!

Maybe this update can give some



1985: Third Phase of Grand Opening


Welcome back to Astroverse! The last part of the grand opening phases are complete, and the park is now fully ready for Jackson!


More Coca-Cola stands have been put around the park, such as this one behind Entry Plaza.


The new roller coaster, The Rebel Yeller, with three back-to-back loops and a corkscrew take people on a wild and fun ride! Built by Arrow Dynamics for the park to present everyone arriving a chance to see this park isn't all wood and buildings.

Here is a few pictures of the ride to showcase the Rebel Yeller and why it's called that.




No one knows for sure what will come in the future, but the future looks bright for Jackson's premier theme park, Astroverse!


A overview of the park for 1985, we hope to see you guys in 1986!


Y'all come back now y'all hear?

I like that layout. Looks a little wierd with such short trains though.


I didn't even realize that till you caught it, something I got to fix in the future!



Year: 1986


Welcome back to Astroverse, in all honesty, it hasn't change a whole lot- oh well, it's always fun for a yearly report from the park!


The one actual addition the park did include, is the Lakeview Gardens, featuring a restroom stall and a video arcade/gift shop. Play the latest electronic video games, buy a Colonel Rouser mascot toy, t-shirts, and more!


At the Dixie Theatre, a third show has been added! The "Stampede Trail", a wild west themed show, featuring action, gun slinging outlaws, the damsel in distress, a frightened town, and of course, Sheriff Montgomery to save the day and save the small desert town from the outlaws!


Octopus, has been closed so far a good sixty percent of the season, with constant breakdowns and mechanical issues the ride, which was bought second hand from a closing theme park in California, shows to be a liability for the park with the maintenance costs going up for Octopus.


Well, guess we will see what will happen in 1987, at Astroverse!

My guess is that Octopus gets replaced with another flat ride

Well, that answer lies in this update!


Year: 1987


Welcome back to Astroverse, there was a lot that changed, more then quieter last year.


A major new difference is that the main street area has had a overhaul, buildings have been remodeled, the City Bus ride and its forest of trees, removed for buildings, to appear more urbanized and welcoming.


The Dixie Theatre closed due to size issues, the theatre's capacity for seating being small. So now, it's just kind of abandoned with the entrance covered with metal walling to prevent people from trying to sneak into it. With the new main street renovations, the dressing room area has been torn down for a entirely new, ride, one that isn't even common, in fact it's so rare, it's a prototype and manufactures are hoping that if it's successful it can wide-spread the ride!


That is, The Eagle Tower! A prototype drop tower, with some, odd, seating arrangement, but it's a prototype it's expected. It's already a heavily popular ride within the park as it allows people to experience flying into the sky like an Eagle before plummeting to the ground of our blue and green marble of space, it's a unique part of our park that we can gladly say in the future, a historic part of the technological growth of the industry.


That Octopus ride has been finally removed and installed with Scrambler. Woo?


Also added is a entirely new area of the theme park, Virginia City! Named after the Virginia City located in Nevada, and with licensing of the old western television show "Bonanza", to help further add to the area's theme.


Due to the Dixie Theatre closure, the park wanted to still feature shows of our favorite mascot, and other shows; so what do we do? We build the Virginia City Theatre to replace the old one, it's much larger, with the lobby being western themed, hopefully for many years it can serve as the park's premier point of theatres for concerts, and park produced shows!


The "Bonanza" licensing was used for a the park's third major roller coaster, called, well.. Bonanza! It's the park's FIRST roller coaster to go at the 100 foot mark, exactly 100 feet. The park has shown us until now, that not all good roller coasters need to be 100 feet tall, but Bonanza opens the door to so much new possibilities for the park!


A unique layout, full of twists and turns, it's a exciting and thrilling ride, just like the wild frontier that is the American West.. back in the 1800s.


See you guys soon at Astroverse!
