White River Amusement Park
« on: March 22, 2019, 08:16 AM »
Welcome To White River Amusement Park

White River Opened to the public in 1994 as Green Gardens, it contained a mainstreet, a ferriswheel, a GCI woodie called Radius, an old car ride called vintage cars and a beautifull little garden area. Due to very low ammount of vistors the park closed in 2001. But an invester called NVDB investments saw a big oppurtuninty to make Green Gardens a big themepark. They Start to demolish the mainstreet and the entrance building on the winter of 2001, and they re-themed the old castle themed area to a classic thempark style entrance and mainstreet. In the park lays a small river called : the white river, the spring of this river is next to the entrance. So this was the reason why NVDB changed the name to White River Amusement park in January 2002. This was the start of an new era in the park history. February 2002 : the mainstreet and entrance as we now it today are finished. Radius the GCI coaster gets a new layout due to alot of mechincal failures in the 1998 season. The ride was made alot smoother and longer. Also the name was changed to Fury : the ride. NVDB had new plans for the garden area, they wanted to add a junior ride. And so it happend also in February 2002 a new ride was born : Tornado. Named after the unique tornado element in the ride. After this area was finished it all begin to speed up, the park was building 4 new flatrides in March. The next month was spend to make the infrastructre better around the park, Because the park is behind a small hill NVDB decides that instead of a road over the hill, to build a tunnel under the hill. Now the village of Maple Springs can come much easily to the park. And so the park opened in June 2002 as White River Amusement park.

And after that day the park have become bigger and bigger with big additions such as : Cobra (2003) an B&M floorless and a new area called : Silver Highlands with a train ride (2004). Then the park added a logflume called Sawmill creek in 2006. Then for a long period they placed nothing in the park until the end of the 2009 season. The park anounced another addition of 4 new flatrides in the silver highlands area of the park. In 2011 NVDB investments had issues with another project where they had to pay a lot of money. That caused the park to close from 2012 to 2018. NVDB investments said : If we have paid all our debts we will start investing on the park again, and we can re-open the park. In the end of december 2018, NVDB was financial stable again, and they started to work on the park again!

Now in 2019 I will show you the progress of White River Amusement park, because NVDB investments will add al lot of new attractions to the park this year!

My vision of the park
« Reply #1 on: March 22, 2019, 08:20 AM »
So first of al my name is Niels van den Berg, Started playing tycoon games 10 years ago. I've started with RCT1, here is where everything started the love for themeparks and creating coasters and realistic parks. Then i switched to RCT2 because you had new parks and features. Then my parents bought a new laptop, when they did, one thing was sure I wanted RCT3, A 3D tycoon game with a Zoo pack and Waterpark pack. I spend hours and hours on this game, creating realistic layouts for coasters and making park entrances. Iv'e played alot of different games but for some reason theme park games have a special place in my heart.

So when Planet coaster came out I was extremely happy, Becasue I have my own laptop now, that can run PlanCo easily. And because there was a new tycoon game. After the big failure of RCT World this was THE game to have.

So when I bought it I started my first park : White River, a park that evolved really quick because I get used to the controls. From an experiment to a realistic park with currently 6 coasters in use.

The park is not done yet, it is like a never ending story, I keep getting plans for it. And that is why I want to share this park on a forum, to show what the park looks like and wich way it is going.

So here it is!  In the following days I will showcase some cool shots from the park!

Some pictures from the park

White River Amusement Park
today I will show you some images from the park.




This is the entrance, a classic and simple design with the sign of White River on top, This entrance has changed much over the years. But the main parts are still standing from 2002 when NVDB investments changed the old entrance.




This is the parking lot as seen from the front of the park, you can also see the second parking lot in the background, this one is mostly used for coaches and big groups, This is aslo the parking lot you see first when you drive out of the tunnel that comes from Maple Springs.




This is Neon an intamin mega lite, this ride used to be hornet and was yellow with white in the 2010 season. Now in 2019 it is changed purple with white and have a bit of a future theme to it





This is Rocket, I really like this setting, the ride really stands out on this way. This ride was part of the second update with 4 new flatrides that came in the 2009 season, in the Silver Highlands area of the park.





This is the station of Heat, this is a custom layout B&M floorless coaster, this coaster was born as Cobra in 2003, with a green track and grey supports, but the coaster got a re theme to heat in the 2010 season, it get a new station, logo, and coulour sheme.




This is Blitz, A B&M Invert, this is still not finished yet, there is missing some theming on the right. The begin part is inspired by patriot, the sharp dive to the right follow by a loop, sharp turn to the right and then that iconic zero g roll.

That were some images from the storage, I will soon upload more recent pictures including Fury the ride a GCI Woodie, sawmill creek a logflume, and the build of a new coaster called dizzer. I will aslo show you an overview from above and some backstage area's

Fury : The Ride!





Lets start with Fury the Ride, the ride started his live as radius in 1994, but due many technical difficulties the ride closed for 2 years. When the park became White River, the ride became Fury : the ride, the layout was extended and the colours changed from white to a more natural wood colour. Also new trains where added to the coaster.




Here you see the section at the back of the ride, from here you get a beautifull view from the park




From here you can see most of the layout from Fury!

Like the way the supports form a trellis over the queue on the final turn.   A good looking coaster all around.

Love the rustic curved path going through the rocks and trees that leads from the parking lot to the park entrance.

This park has an awesome realistic feel to it.  Fury and Heat are my favorites right now and having a backstage area really adds that extra realism to make your park stand out.  I can't wait to see more.

Updates
« Reply #19 on: May 04, 2019, 10:50 AM »
Becasue I was very busy with school and other little things I didn't had the time to work on my park, but I'm back with some updates! I will try to upload more and keep the updates coming!




This is cursed factory, a new flatride themed after an old factory.




This is the back of cursed factory, with a little pond and a waterfall still work in progress





I finished the rockwork under the lifthill of Blitz and added custom footers.




This is a new restaurant in the middle of the old oak forest area named : old oak restaurant.




I wanted an Arcade for a long time in my park, and I finally found a good spot. So I made this one, I'm pretty happy how it came out in the end




The inside of the arcade, I really like the way it looks with the lights




!!!Work in progress!!! Dizzer a new spinning coaster in the new area!




And the ring of doom, a new ride in the caves behind sawmill creek, also a work in progress!!!

That's it for now, I hope I will be back soon for some more updates!

Wow, another gem that turned up while I was gone...

Belated welcome to SGW and PC, FluxCobra aka Niels!  You do great work.  I've now read this thread from the beginning and am greatly impressed by the realism and overall beauty of this park.  Also, I really like it's fall colors, which sets it apart from the usual high summer or deep winter most folks (including myself) do.

That arcade in this latest update is fantastic!  It really stands out, even though everything else is top-shelf, too.  Keep it up!

It's been a while since my last post but i'm back with some updates from the park!

I started to do some work in the area arround the waterfall, At first I placed another flatride but I replaced it for something way better.
There was a huge plain of land wich I had no idea what to do with. So I came up with the idea of a smaller more compact coaster.

After many attempts and trying many different ride types I found the perfect one.

A Gerstlauer Eurofighter! It think the erea looks very nice with the coaster in the backround!



I tried many different layouts on the coaster and watched some video's of different Eurofighters. And came across Speed : No limits at Oak wood.
The layout perfectly fitted in the spot!




I also think that the colour sheme does really stand out




I removed the huge flatride and replaced it with a smaller ride that fit the erea much more.




Still a lot of work to do! So the updates will keep coming!




That was it for today's post! I will keep continuing with the park and the area!

That Eurofighter has a great layout and a nice combination of elements.  Also, I agree, the paintjob is well-chosen.  It goes with the surrounding vegetation and also is eye-catching above it.
