I love the level of detail in the buildings. The first screenshot in the most recent update looks amazing with the colors in the sky. Awesome job!

 I love that ride skin for the Weisshorn or whatever they call it, the drop tower, and the snack bar.  All brilliant ;)

The midway looks awesome! This park overall is spectacular and full of details. I will say the midway is my favorite area and makes me excited to see what else you have planned for this park! Brilliant work!

I have been away a bit longer than expected.



This project is massive, it was not the right thing to start in Planet Coaster with but I have not given up on it.  I have been fixing a lot of things lately and have done some new stuff.

Nice! Pics 3, 4 & 5 are my favorites. The colorful neon reflected in the water (I mentioned it before) is even nicer here. The sunset(?) shot of the lighthouse with the skyway gondolas looks beautiful. And the colorful Bijou theater sign catches (demands!) our attention. Anyone walking in the area would automatically be drawn to it. :)

Glad you're back over here!  Looking amazing.  I'm loving this architecture.  I really want to get better at building like this so this is really inspiring.

It's so cool to see your still around Kidfox! Your work and influence has been very inspiring to me over the years. This just adds onto your legacy! Love the warehouse district, nice architecture, playful but just right. I love the skyline in general as well!

Thank you guys.

This park has a long history of course going back to when I started RCT3 and it always transitioned with the fictional amusement park company behind it, at the last of my work in RCT3 I was redeveloping my parks moving away from just amusement parks to be actual theme parks that tried to have actual themed areas that were consistent.   I am trying to reflect that in this version of the park with some amusement part still left but definitely more themed areas.  Even the midway has a theme as you will see.

The history of this park even in RCT3 was that it had been a military camp, then used as a fairgrounds before it was turned into an amusement park.  Fox Amusements purchased it and for a time tried to keep up with Cedar Point and Magic Mountain on coasters but now it is in transition, not removing big coaster but trying to do more for the atmosphere of the park and bring in some themed attractions.



Some of the fixing I am doing is to add some details and Easter eggs around the park and improving some of the buildings with new scenery that has been made available.   






In the RCT3 park I had a couple of restaurants in this area but they have been re-located to the warehouse district and a games midway was built in this area.












On to the midway.

NEON! Lots 'n lots of neon! Show me some neon and you'll keep me mesmerized for hours (well... minutes.) :D  I especially like the wavy roofline of the SkeeBall game booth. And the wings/tailfins on the Midway Café look great.

Breathtaking lighting!  And those sexy roof curves!  Hubba hubba!   :drool:  The roofline of Midway Cafe matching up with the coaster hill is gorgeous.  And I see my poopie plushies made it in your park!  I am truly honored!    :blush:

That high striker game made of stacked police lights is brilliant.  Is that your creation or a workshop item?  It's such a good idea.
