The realism is strong in this one. Great job!

Thanks :)

Just some news that I found from early 1982:



At least that silly law was abolished!

New exciting update on the way, online within the next few hours.

Re: Three Mountains Park - 1983: Quetzal *new rollercoaster*
Post #64     : August 02, 2011, 07:12 AM
Hi again!
1983 is the next brochure that I found, from the year when the corkscrew "Quetzal" and the rowing boats opened.
The flatride Wirbelwind moved yet again, it's now located on a peninsula in the big lake. I can tell you for now, it's not gonna be the last time that it moved :D

I think this was the last brochure of that kind, maybe I find the one of 1984, maybe not... but I know for sure that the park came up with a totally new kind of brochure and map from 1985 on.

Stay tuned! Here's the brochure 1983.

That's one nice looking coaster you have! Cool name too, Aztecs always have weird unique names. ;)

This is one beautiful park! I absolutely love the Park Map/Brochures you have created for each year, it's very realistic. Keep up the great work! :up:

Very very beautiful work

I feel the alpine houses look a bit awkward joined together but everything else is great!

I'm really wanting to know more about that Haunted ride.....

This is such a beautiful park and the presentation of it is amazing especially the use of park maps/brochures. The only thing is you may want to custom support Alpenblitz as it looks really unsupport in places like the first drop. Other than that great work and keep it up!

Thanks everyone.. :)
I have to confess, I am not good with custom support  :-[ believe me it looks more realistic *now* than it would be if I'd deal with that :D Not a coaster expert here...

That haunted ride..... will undergo a complete change soon. That's why I wait with promoting it a bit more :)

Sorry I didn't find the brochure of 1984 (no new stuff), BUT, here is the new park guide that they introduced in 1985. It's big!!! They were well aware that the park grew and grew, so the old map would have gotten harder to read every year.
There have been some other changes in 1985!
The park established 5 theme areas: Port of Fun, the already existing Alpendorf, Maya Land (which will grow around Quetzal), the already existing but relaunched Oriental Valley, and Mystery Cove with the log flume and the ghost castle.
The slide and the 3D cinema disappeared, the close area west of the tower got an all new look and layout.

"Crazy Tea House" is one new ride that replaced the slide, and the cinema got replaced by a Tiger Show.
"Krake" moved to the southern end of the log flume.

The guide also features a new system that shows how intense a ride is, it's labelled by stars** behind the ride name.
Anyway, I can't describe it all cos it's SO much.
From now on I'll only upload pages that changed throughout the years, so this is probably the last complete guide upload. It's also quite time consuming...
anyway, here it is! :)

I can't believe this is the first time I am seeing the park. The park itself is amazing, but that photo editing on the 12 PAGES (talk about dedication) is just amazing! One of my favorite parks on the forums for sure!  :)

The newest park guide is really detailed and looks really professional, great job with it. I really love how you have given an overview of each area in the park and the redesigned Oriental Valley looks really nice. However on the park guide for Oriental Valley it says there is a Lion Show (Under Other) but it is a Tiger Show  :P

I can't wait to see the new addition to Mystery Cove and keep up the great work!

yes, and they also called the "Crazy Tea House" as "Crazy Tea Ride" on that page ;)
Will try to replace the page with the corrected version of a later edition!

Thanks everyone :)
What do you mean with On-Park updates? Dunno the term yet  :-[

If you mean new rides, that will naturally come throughout the history, more frequently from now on.
i am trying to strictly stick to which rides were available / common by the respective years, and I try to let the park grow as realistically as possible, in the speed of an average european theme park, developing from the 70s to now.

In addition to your crazy mad picture editing skills, you've also got a great talent with terraforming and landscape.  Maya Land looks to provide lots of room for expansion, looking forward to seeing what happens there!!

After each update I start to love this park more and more,
It's so unbelieveble real.
Quatzal reminds me of the name I always used at my former parks,
I love how you put the old arrow lay-out in the theming.
Sorry if I'm late with this, but I just enjoy the way you represent this park in style of a park guide,
Keep on going,

Nevada ;)

The dedication you put into this is outstanding. The amount of effort put into the park and into the guides and maps is mind-blowing. How much time do you spend doing this each day?

Thank you very much everyone!
I spent a couple of days on the latest guide, the previous brochures took around 3 hours each.
But I made the guide so that I don't have to spend as much time anymore on future updates, since I'll only
do the changed themed area, and maybe the cover, which should be done within an hour I hope.
About the park itself, a couple of hours depending on the scale of new attractions, but very unregularily. There are weekends where I build some years
in advance already, without publishing it all at once, but just step by step.
Though rightnow, the park is living 1986, so just 1 year difference ;)

Next update (1986) will come next week I hope!

Short update :)
Having an off-game phase lately, but not letting this down.

1986 cover and update for Mystery Cove!





More in-game-shots will be done, promised.
The next update can take a while, cos the next attraction is gonna be the most challenging one so far!

Will upload the preview hint from the 1986 brochure another day ;)

This presentation just blows me away, so clean and professional. You can certainly get a theme park vibe just from the brochures! Great work, Elch! :)
