This is looking good. I think my favorite areas are the mummy exterior and the park entrance. For the future, landscaping will more than likely be the thorn in your side if you use the quarter-tile bushes (trust me on this one!). Recently, I have been using larger bushes/trees and really playing with what can be seen at the eye-level of guests. Nothing terrible, but I am warning you whenever you start getting "refurb crazy" because trust me it will happen.

I'm not quite sure what you did in the Revenge of the Mummy queue- that shot with the chain link fencing. Are those just billboard images behind the fencing? If so, it's a neat effect. The fences set the images back, visually; like there really is a room back there.

Thanks for the feedback! I will definitely pay close attention to that now that you mention it.

Yes you guessed correctly! They are billboard images from the actual queue line that I then put behind the fence and added a little space to give them some depth. Making it appear like rooms just like in the real Revenge of the Mummy!  :D

This is amazing work! What you did with the plaza stage is incredible! Nice work! I am getting more and more excited to turn this park into #HHN30!

Thanks! I was really trying to match the style of the stage in Music Plaza and found a great Art Deco set that I felt looked very identical. At the same time I was also trying to hide the ugly Kara Oki signage so I think it worked out quite nicely!  :)

Thanks! Yeah luckily there is no twitter rivalry in RCT3!  ;D

I am loving it! Nice job!

Thanks. I thought I would try to add a little Halloween Horror Nights decorations to the park for the season. It will be much better for HHN30 when you will take over the Horror Nights segment! By the way, did you finish your Horror Nights 29 Recreation? I would love to see it.  :)

I'm still working on it. I will update you with my progress. Would you like me to personal message you? or post them here?

If you could private message them that would be good. I would say post them on here but since you are using Brad's recreation and it is not mine I would rather not have it on this thread. Just to avoid any confusion or misrepresentation if that makes sense. Excited to see the progress on your HHN29 Recreation and keep me updated!  :)
