Awesome! I've made a couple of memes to celebrate this special occasion...

Valley Hills is coming back? The park that inspired me to try to make a park blog? The park with a full website?

Thanks for the read, the park has always been on my mind.

I've been working on the next step since the spring. I hope the next update goes over well as the conversion will really help push this park to where I want it to go.

I'ts good to hear my park is inspiring people. I honestly looked through countless simulated park threads and wanted to give my own spin on it. I never imagined it would turn into what it has become.

September 2011 Update / PLANET COASTER

James Smith - regular guest

Over the years Valley Hills has grown larger with new rides and attractions popping up almost everywhere. With over 40 rides and attractions, it's hard to keep up with it all. The last update focused on Flat Rides, so this update will focus on the park's 9 roller coasters. Enjoy!

Image
Here we are again at Appalachia's premiere amusement park, Valley Hills.

Image
It feels like forever since I last visited this park back in June. ;)

Image
Black Stallion, a PTC woodie, is one of the first coasters guests will run into.

Image
The ride starts with a 109' chain lift, looming over the Que area.

Image
The 97' drop kicks things into high gear as Black Stallion bucks through its 3,000' course.

Image
The 55 m.p.h. journey features numerous airtime filled hills and twisted turns. Unfortunately, most of the ride is hidden in the thick backwoods, the only visible parts are from the parking lot.

Image
Next up is IGNITION, the parks very own old-school B&M invert.

Image
After exiting the 125.8' lift hill, riders swoop into a curved drop at approximately 60 m.p.h. into a powerful vertical loop.

Image
Riders roar over the station in a classic, snappy, zero-g roll.

Image
The 1-2-3 PUNCH!

Image
One of my personal favorite elements of IGNITION, the elevated carousel spin.

Image
Located inside Planet Snoopy is the family-friendly Cosmic Coaster.

Image
RattleSnake, a 1977 Schwarzkopf classic.

Image
Up the lift hill...

Image
...and through the first vertical loop east of the Ohio River.

Image
White Lightning, the king of coasters at Valley Hills.

Image
This epic B&M dive machine is easily the best Valley Hills has to offer.

Image
Riders ascend the 45°, 185', chain lift hill into the sky.

Image
The 90° vertical drop shoots riders into a towering Immelmann inversion over the lake.

Image
after a quick MCBR, a second near-vertical drop ensues.

Image
This U-turn sets riders up for the second inversion...

Image
...a barrel roll over the station.

Image
A fun splashdown into the pond and into the second (inclined) Immelmann inversion.

Image
A pop of airtime and a high-speed helix finale completes the 68 m.p.h. journey on White Lightning.

Image
Snoopy's Rocket Express, located in Camp Snoopy. Installed this year by Vekoma and already seeing extensive downtime. Did the park not learn their lesson with Deja Vu?

Image
Woodstock Express, also located in Camp Snoopy.

Image
A fun family woodie with some nice lats.

Image
The BIG drop!

Image
Kanawha Railway opened with the park in 1972 as its first and only coaster.

Image
The iconic helix leading into the midway tunnel.

Image
Kanawha Railway's The first lift hill rises behind Music Box. I've always found this to be an extremely tight fit.

Image
The other iconic drop into the second midway tunnel. Arrow Dynamics really took advantage of the unique obstacles with this one.

Image
The second lift hill sends you into a double spiral before heading back into the station.

Image
Pulse

Image
Those twisted towers never get old, so much fun!

Image
The sun goes down but Pulse still rockets into the sky at 65 m.p.h.

Image
I love RatteSnake's lightning package, it blends perfectly.

Image
The same can be said for White Lightning.

Image
And that concludes this update.

Wow! What an awesome transformation.I love how all the roller coaster look now that they are in planet coaster. One of the things that I've worried about with planet coaster are the flat rides, so I look forward to seeing how the parks look with a new game!

What's with the donkeys anyway?

I've thoroughly enjoyed going through this thread and seeing the updates! Everything, the commentary, the atmosphere in game, the style, everything is so very immersive, and it keeps me coming back to this thread. GREAT work! =)
