Looks fantastic! Very nice facade. I assume this will be a target ride?

Am I missing something? Where can I get the skeleton with the pirate hat?

Put on your bifocals and look again...it's the pirate cutlasses crossed behind the skull and not a pirate hat... ;D

Looks quite nifty.  And having seen the sneak preview, I KNOW it's quite nifty :)

Just 1 nit.  In the 2nd pic, the sword blades make the skull look like a dead rabbit and, once that thought occurred to me, it looked like a dead rabbit in all the other pics.  Maybe swap the swords around so the handles are up and the blades down?  Or something?

I think he means the two skeletons standing up on the castle battlements. That's the spooky pack skeleton with Lulujarre's tricorn hat toolkit item on its head.  ;)   rabbit ears, eh?  Ha ha.

I'm just happy the new attraction has air conditioning.  It's hot out there.

Tri-focals!  And a magnifying glass!

I had to look three times and then literally saved the screen to my desktop so I could scroll in to even see them!   ;D

Ha ha!  Here is the item.  It's a little pirate hat that fits perfectly on the skeleton.   https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1736536402&searchtext=triccon

I foresee that item getting a lot of use in a lot of parks!

Looking forward to more, Derek!

Re: Kaleidoscope Piers: Ghost Pirates now available!!

Ghost Pirates now available!!  The park file has been updated (make sure you grab the latest user media set.  I added a few new billboard images).  AND, the ride is available as a blueprint!

Park is here:  https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1761954599

Ghost Pirates blueprint is here:  https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1781041519

POV and installation instructions video:



Screenshots:













My top score so far.  Can you beat it?



Hints:  The purple targets are worth ten times what the aqua targets are worth!  The starfish are targets.  And, the ghosts in the rotating tunnel are targets!  The eyes of the skull over the doorway where you enter the ride are a target!  And there's a 100 point target inside the shark's mouth right before you pull into the station!   ;)

SO well done!!

Is it hard getting all the targets set up to function?  I'm still at the point where I'm trying to get the track to spin the cars in the right direction and actually face the displays properly when they stop.  It's time consuming!  :P

I love the ghost pirate statue in the queue line...  your attention to details knows no bounds!   :up:

Who needs to go on real theme park rides when we can just visit Kaleidoscope Piers and get the same experience :D Haha, awesome work as usual, Ghost Pirates is a phenomenal addition with great attention to detail :)

this ride is perfect for your park. Really like the queue set with the animatronic pirate scene. Great ride and great use of the targets, Can't wait to figure out how to add one of these to my park. THX for the instruction details as well. great video.

Thanks so much, guys!  Glad you four enjoyed it.  Be sure to play it as a blueprint in a small park.  Understandably, it doesn't play too well inside Kaleidoscope Piers.  ha ha.

Post your high score screenshots!   :D

The targets are very easy to set up and connect to triggered scenery.  It basically makes a chain of sequencers so you can make cascading animations.  Rotating the vehicle is still a challenge but the preview arrows on the track now make it sooooo much easier.  And they do show the pitch, roll, and yaw.  From the video clips the devs showed, I thought it was only the yaw setting we saw in the preview arrows but no, they pitch and roll as well.  The only problem is that it ends up doing weird stuff like the RCT3 robo-controlled rides did.  You only have 360 degrees to work with on the yaw and the game doesn't understand that zero degrees is the same as 360 degrees so if you want it to spin beyond 360, it does a weird extreme snap where it suddenly spins backwards from 360 back to zero.

Yet again, another top notch ride by Fisherman! It looks like lots of fun. And as many have said, the ghost pirate in the queue is brilliant.

Love it!  Given all the spooky attractions this park has, doing a halloween theme will be a perfect fit.

I love it already- with the dramatic lighting. I like the Jack-o-lantern/scarecrow streetlamp.

Coming Soon!  KP's spooooooky Halloween haunt event Kaleidoscope FEARS!  Included will be facades for SEVEN terrifying haunted houses (sadly no interiors - no one could open the park - ha ha):  Psycho Circus, Wicked Woods, Ghost Town, The Catacombs, Below Deck - The Ghost Ship, The Rage - Aftermath, and The Widow's Attic.  The haunts and scare zones are squeezed into every nook and cranny I could find.  Ha ha!  Also included will be new blueprints for some fun spooky game stalls and food stands.  Plus blueprints for a whole horde of scare-actors!  Stay tuned!  Here are some teasers:

The psycho clowns look great, including the giant one looking down from the entrance. I like how the Trick-or-Treat Wheel is all tricks and no treats. The stands/stalls all look terror-ific, but my favorite is the Rotten Apples stand- colorful, creepy, and comical. Some really clever names for all these booths and stands.
