Um, but can someone use Maylene's Classic Corkscrew CTR's instead of the ingame one? The ingame looks terrible.

I can't quite remember.. What's the oldest coaster at the park?? I feel like you left one out this update. And by the way, wood coasters all the way! It's a shame you don't have a golden age one like me. :P
Monstrum is the park's oldest coaster. Also missing from the last update were Inverter and Minimus - we have 8 total coasters. And yes, wooden coasters are where it's at :P

^ I believe that its Monstum. You can see it bordering two sides of Top Gun.

The park is looking great! Are there any big events planned for the park this year? I remember when Aerosmith came. A big concert like that would be cool. ;)

Yeah, that would be the best! Get some guys that were huge in '99 like Limp Bizkit and KoRn.

No worries guys, we've got some entertainment-related announcements yet to come!

Wow. It's been a really long time since I replied to your park.

Nice developments! Top Gun is looking really slick, and that entrance is marvelous. I couldn't help but notice how crazy the difference in quality was between the entrance plaza and Top Gun, and that's a compliment! It means that you've gotten better and better as the park developed! I'm interested to see where this park goes next, and what projects you do in the future.
Haha thank you, every once in a while I go back to the first few pages and take a look at where I started. It's a shock really, and this was actually the "second draft" so-to-speak for the park. Maybe someday I'll show you guys what the park was going to be....

Um, but can someone use Maylene's Classic Corkscrew CTR's instead of the ingame one? The ingame looks terrible.
Yes, I used Classic Corkscrew on Steel Demon. I just never bothered to revamp Inverter, I may if I have time.

Hey again!

I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend...I know I sure did! I'd have a Fourth of July update for you guys except I took the week off to spend some time with my family. Nevermind that, I'm back at the park now and this is peak season. And boy is it a peak, our attendance numbers are off the charts! Thank goodness the last few big investments are paying off!


I always like to try my hand at the midway games. You'd think I'd be decent at them after all these years, but no luck....


With crowds like these, it's a good thing Top Gun is so efficient - otherwise the long line (plus this heat) would be unbearable!


Of course, we've always got water rides like Highland Falls to cool off.


I realized today that with the addition of Top Gun, we've got two batwing inversions in the park.


Steel Demon was the first with a batwing in the park, this unique double-looping element.


But which is better now, what do you think? Steel Demon's classic batwing or Top Gun's inverted batwing?

How about using Safari J's Arrow Pack? It goes well with the Classic Corkscrew CTR.

How about he built that years before Safari J's set came out? You don't just see coasters irl getting new supports all of a sudden.

That water park is just the inspiration I needed! Great stuffy gci! Love hoe Top Gun turned out. It certainly dominates the surroundings.

The classic Vekoma batwing, of course! Plus the better path interactions it has.

Hi. I don't remember asking for sets to rebuild my entire park, but thanks for the tips. I'm perfectly content with the way the coaster looks now; if you have actual feedback you want to give me, I'd love to hear it. Otherwise, please stop rattling off CS sets. Please and thank you.

How about he built that years before Safari J's set came out? You don't just see coasters irl getting new supports all of a sudden.
Thanks for backing me up, Wacky Worm.

Haha thank you! The waterpark is simple, it's a little embarrassing compared to some of the other waterparks that have popped up recently. But I appreciate the kind words :)

Thank you :) Everyone seems to love the entrance, I guess.

Nice as always. Good job. :up:
Thanks!

Thanks man!

Don't tell the Top Gun fans, but you're absolutely right. I knew I liked you :P lol



1999
Season 22

Welcome back!

Top Gun just had an outrageous line today, I stayed away and visited some other areas of the park!


Did you know, this used to be the site of the corporate offices? I personally think this is a better use of the site!


This is one of my favorite areas of the park since the renovations when Hurler was added.


Of course, this view across the lake is nice too.


WaterWorks wasn't too busy today, so I decided to spend some time over there.


I'll admit...as much as I love lounging under one of those umbrellas, I have just as much fun at that water playground! Haha.


Of course, the lazy river and our four slides are still my favorite WaterWorks attractions.

I'll have more soon as the summer starts to wind down. Thanks for reading!

Nice to see some more pictures of the water park. And I like your swan boat ride station!

**NOTE from gci: Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of update yesterday as well as today's late post. I'm on the road again and I think that because of my travel schedule I'll be taking a short break after the season ends with one final update tomorrow. I'll still be working on the park where I can but reliable updates will be difficult, so I'll just save the surprises until my return from vacation. Thanks for sticking with it!



1999
Season 22

Hello!

Sorry it's been a while, I've just been so busy the past few weeks in the office that I haven't had as much time to get out and take pictures. We're working on our plans for next year, and while we thought we had it all figured out, we've been moving some things around on our timeline and it's taken up quite a bit of my time. As I understand it, the corporate guys decided to shift some funds around and try out a few new ideas at our sister parks. If all goes well, we might see similar additions here in Newport within the next few years. Of course, I'm not giving anything away...but you'll find out soon. Anyway, here's a larger-than-usual update to make up for my absence:


Wow, that's tall! I braved Drop Zone today...I have no immediate plans to ride it again.


By the time I got out of the office, it was mid-afternoon. I wonder what will become of some of our older rides like Rumble?


I grabbed a quick bite here at this patio stall after a ride on Rotor. It's one of our oldest rides in the park, opening back in 1982.


I spent quite a bit of time over at Top Gun today.


I waited until the line died down before I went for a ride. Top Gun is always a rush!


Even when I'm not riding, I love just sitting over here by the ride. Who doesn't like people-watching?


Of course, it's a great place for views -- and ice cream!


I took a walk over to Backwoods after that. Formerly called Mine Town, this area opened for our second season and has hardly changed since!


I guess the park has decided it's time to freshen up the area. Rising Smoke, here in the center, will be leaving in a week or two. Be sure to get in your last rides before it goes away forever.

Out with the old and in with the new, I guess? It's always sad to see a classic ride go....

I don't bother commenting enough on this park, when I really should; it's fantastic. Looking through all these pictures, you can really see the growth the park's experienced, and with the addition of Top Gun, it's just made the park that much more great at what it does. Love the foliage everywhere, and it seems like the park is photogenic just about anywhere!

Great work, gci!

I wish this was really in Newport.  A nice B&M invert 15 minutes from my house would be nice.


So that's against the rules, and you can't sit with us."
