There is an inverted drop hill on this coaster, with a head-chopper effect all the way down



View of this drop from the back of the train



more bends and curves through the rocks

Heading into a brake section behind the stadium stands



A couple tight helix bends to end the ride



Where you end up back in the garage and head to the load station

That's a VERY intimidating ride.  That inverted drop should wet a few pants :).  I really want to see a POV :)

That looks quite intense.  And the scenery is fantastic!  As shyguy says, excellent dirt-moving :)

That's fantastic, Wowman!  A very cool and intense ride through epic scenery!  In itself it's a great piece of work, but along the way you see it's just 1 small part of the glorious whole ;).  I also liked the choice of music.  It's amazing how they can make the happy-happy Planet Coaster theme sound so much like Darth Vader's music ;).

I did note 1 small problem on the daylight video, though.  Just as the train is entering the station, just a few seconds before the end of the video, there's place where a fairly large lump of terrain sticks up through the tracks.  The video ends there so I assume it wrecked the train ;)

yep - saw that as well after I made the video....and yes, this game has awesome music. Almost worth the price of the game just for the music.

Great ride! And yes, I love that music too. It sounds like something right out of Star Wars.

Lets take a closer look at the Pod Racers Jr. coaster.
As you leave the station you first travel a way through the garage area.


Then you pass throught the stadium and cheered by all the fans



After a few short lift hil segments the ride drops and picks up speed

Even though this coaster is less intense, it still has a few banked curves for excitement








Arriving back in the station

THX, this smaller/shorter track was an afterthought to try and get the track to ride through the stadium. I wasn't totally pleased with it, but left it in as I got tired of tinkering with it. Trying to get the main coaster to move in all the directions I really wanted just wasn't working out right.

That's a neat little ride, probably the world's most interesting kiddie coaster ;).  It gives such great views of all the AMAZING stuff in that area.  All the buildings, video billboards, and of course a double run through the grandstands to the adulation of all your fans.  I find it quite ironic that we can't tell the difference between hostage peeps seeking divine intervention to rescue them, and peeps jumping for joy  :up:

Nifty video showing the bigboy pod racer blasting by a few times ;).  I really think this area is the best of the whole park so far.

You have the most beautiful, clear, crisp screenshots.  The areal view looks so realistic, like it was a photo taken from a drone.

THX - they are just screen captures using the Windows Snipping tool.

As we wrap up this land, here are a few tilt-shift captures I was playing around with.

I love those tilt-shift photos.  Makes me feel like I'm playing with my toys again.  I lost more guns in that shag carpet we had... :P
