haha, congrats on your purchase.   Anxious to see what you turn out with it.

I'm sincerely hoping Frontier releases some of their game textures (i forgot what the modders call them) so people can make matching set pieces for the ingame stuff.  The WF building sets aren't the only ones that would benefit greatly from that.

I was just thinking that very same thing. What we really need is ALL the themes to be fleshed out with more pieces, and the only way that's going to happen is for Frontier to release all the textures. Unfortunately I fear that will never happen.

Phase Two begins with addition of the Rotor



The new Rotor opens at Wonder Beach Boardwalk.



If you don't want your stomach turned inside out, there are shaded benches out front where you can wait while your friends or family members ride.



The queue.



You can watch a live feed of the ride while you wait in line. Last chance to chicken out.



This Rotor is basically a hybrid of the actual classic ride. It's bigger, and you aren't plastered to the wall without any restraints.



The top deck provides a nice view of the Boardwalk below.



And you can watch the peeps spin till they puke from up here as well.



The Rotor is a nice addition to the expanding Boardwalk.



Obligatory night shot.



Panoramic view of the Boardwalk.

The Rotor looks great; very boardwalk-y. I doubt that even Mr. Wonder can find fault with the way you've built this classic ride.

I'm guessing there's no actual Rotor in the game and that this is the Round-up, or whatever it's called in P.C., right? (You didn't show us any pics with the floor dropped down.) Do the peeps go round 'n round? Are you able to control the ride so that it doesn't tilt up? I'm kinda confused.

Yes, it's the classic Round-Up (or Centrum in PC). And you can set it so it doesn't tilt up and just stays flat while spinning round. So, no, the floor doesn't drop down, plastering the guests on the walls. But it's the closest I can get to creating a Rotor, which is the ride that's there in the RCT3 version of this park.

great idea putting the round up inside a rotor skin. really creative. I have some real horror stories about riding on the rotor...I will spare everyone the details.

The Rotor looks awesome! I love those rides. There is one travelling at the funfairs around here. I love to ride it sometimes. Really clever to use the roundup and turn off the tilt.

Oh, wow. Another pleasant surprise! So glad to see this continued as well! I have a lot of fond memories of this park as you were building it. Might inspire me to try and put something together for the contest, give me an excuse to boot up the PC game that I bought but only played a handful of times.

Its great to see that you are still at this after all of these years! Can't wait to see what this brings!
