-You're obviously really talented with coaster layouts, and it 100% shows. Every ride is on point, Shark Express is the clear king of this park. Just get rid of that horrendous shark statue on the track, and you'll be golden (that's not a pun, I swear).
Heh, thanks. I tend to be pretty good with coaster layouts overall, probably because I've spent a few years working on them (say like thirteen or so years).
I basically patterned Shark Express with hints of the Giant Dipper at Belmont Park, Cyclone from Coney Island and even the Texas Giant before it's RMC. In turn, I ended up with the Shark Express.
And yes...the shark head was my idea. Not the best idea ever looking back at it.

Ironically enough, this happens to be my weak point when it comes to building parks. Basically, my idea for making parks less bland are a lot of rides and vegetation. With that said however, I am trying to improve this aspect with this park and other parks and I hope that by the end of this, it will look a lot less like a wasteland but more of an amusement park.

Incidentally, I was thinking of upgrading it to a family coaster, so there's that.
I hate to say it, but I have a bit of an unwritten rule for myself: Once you finish a ride and it has been successfully tested, you don't go back and make anymore changes. Because once it's done, it's done. It might be a pretty unpopular opinion, but hey, that's just what I do. You probably do things differently and I respect you for it.

Okay, I laughed.
Thanks. I tend to have a sense of humor.
Ok, update time!A Whole New Section (Or: Construction 2: Electric Boogaloo)
Welp. It's been a few months now since I spoke to you last, so you might be asking yourself: What's been going on? I'm happy to say that Golden Coast has become a massive success early on it's life; with critics and attendees praising the theming, rides and the massive amount of potential it had for the future. Which is great news!
On more interesting news, I finally got the time to come back to the park and see what was new for the second season. Now let me ask you a question, remember that coaster track I showed you at the end of the last update? Well...
And there you have it! Things in the Golden Coast seem to be getting interesting now that we have a new section of rides to play around with. Until next time, I encourage those to give me tips on how the park can be better and what works with the park right now. I'll see you in a few days or so!Next time: Waliki Wonderland Officially Opens!
