Rat Trap - Beta 9 Build Challenge
« on: August 05, 2018, 04:28 PM »
This is my entry to the latest build challenge. Think of it as a family park's attempt to recreate Toy Story Land with a knock off of the Mouse Trap board game. It's a windy powered coaster through game pieces and a giant wedge of cheese.





The ride starts with a zig zag up a ball chute.



Then twist around a falling cage.



The dive into the swiss.



My favorite element, an outward banked curve over the edge of the cheese, into a helix.



For some classier themeing, some makeshift rat topiaries.



An overview of the whole ride.

Here's the steam workshop link: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1467048686

If you like the ride, give it a vote!

This is one of the best things I've seen built in Parkitect. Really clever.

Thank you shyguy! Supports and decorations get a LOT harder without your sets, so that creativity is forced out of you.

So why don't you just use my sets? :P

Your first pic looks like the box cover art from the board game itself. (We still have the game in some cupboard around here somewhere.) The clean, relatively undetailed simplicity of Parkitect lends itself well to this style of ride. The primary colors really grab your attention. Well done!

No mods for these build challenges in case they want to include the blueprint in later games. I'll start a new park with mods one of these days.

And thank you JB!
