Rose Lake Park is a fictional park located in Plancovia, somewhere around the Pennsylvania and Ohio areas.

It is supposed to represent any number of old time trolley parks that turned into a real amusement park over the decades. Kennywood outside of Pittsburgh PA would be an example of the sort of park that Rose Lake is/was, fictionally of course!

Thank you, guys!

How about a couple of teasers to tide you over until the park file release and Episode 3, part 2 comes out?

What is this?  Hmmm...I see a boardwalk...and stuff...   ;)

Thanks, JP!  That reminds me...the Boardwalk also looks fantastic at other times.   ;)

How about some more screenshots?

Very nice-looking boardwalk. :)  The mostly white coloring looks great. I like how you're adding lights/string lights to (almost) everything. It reflects what was being done in real-life at that time, as electric lighting became a thing (a la Coney Island, etc.).

I love the Flying Gondolas. (It's a static ride, right?) Are the riders just the in-game animatronic figures? (They seem to be dressed in period costume.) (Also, I like using parentheses.)

The last pic really shows how Rose Lake Park has grown from a sleepy trolley destination to a full-fledged amusement park.

Yes, yes, and yes.  The Flying Gondolas has two configurations - flying, and hanging straight down.  One version is always kept hidden underground so you can swap them for screenshots.   ;)

Speaking of popcorn lights, how about some night shots?

Oooh! Ahhh! Really like the second shot; how the string lights on the Flying Gondolas are straight and geometrical, while their reflection in the water is anything but that. And I see the Tickler has found a home in Rose Lake Park.

Rose Lake Park map 3 (1910 - 1919) is now available for download on the workshop and Episode 3, part 2 is now up on YouTube!





Park:  https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2099942932

Rose Lake Park, 1910 - 1919 (map 3). Created by: Fisherman, Wagi, JPAlmighT, Wolf Tenor, Bullethead, and BeyondDrewTV.

This park map represents the third chapter of the journey chronicling the life of Rose Lake Park from its humble beginnings as a picnic grove at the end of a trolley line near Peepsburgh in the heart of Plancovania, to the world renown destination amusement park it is today.  The park has survived a great fire that destroyed much of the midway, including the beloved Jackalope roller coaster.  Thankfully, the founders took out an insurance policy (triple indemnity too!) so they were not only able to replace the Jackalope with an all new, more thrilling version, but they were also able to add many new rides and attractions to the new Lawn area where the midway once was.  They also built a new Japanese Garden and a Grand new Boardwalk on Lake Leemay, home to several new rides.

The park requires MANY billboard images and several custom sound effects tracks for the map to run correctly. Please download them from our Google Drive. Place the contents of the file "RLP 1900-1909 User Media.zip" into your User Media folder and place the contents of "RLP 1900-1909 User Music.zip" into your User Music folder BEFORE opening Planet Coaster to ensure that everything works correctly (you should hear sounds all around the park, especially around the lakes and the hotel):

We have and will be using many blueprints and TMTK items throughout this project and we wish to acknowledge the wonderful content designers for their work. We will be adding links to their work to collections which we will continually update here:

Rose Lake Park Blueprints: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1955781929

Rose Lake Park TMTK items: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1955773510

We strongly suggest that you allow the game to download the required toolkit items for you upon loading the park.

Also, the park has a hilarious, and often sordid, history. So, if you are a park history buff and have a junior high sense of humor, follow along at the Plancovania Historical Society's Blog page for the park here: https://roselakepark.blogspot.com/

To be honest, when I clicked on the video and saw that it was 1 hour and 10 minutes long, part of me groaned. BUT, another part of me rejoiced! I really enjoy your video tours- Just a few friends sittin' around gabbin' and jokin' about their latest accomplishments-  and inviting us to listen in; to be a part of it. An entertaining way to spend 1 hour and 10 minutes, I'd say. I've mentioned it before, but the opening sequence, where the small image grows to fill the entire screen, was done especially nice this time.

I see the raccoons have made another appearance, I think they're in every video(?). And OMG!!1!!1 An honest-to-goodness jackalope! In the wild! Very rare, indeed. Don't let the hotel chef see him though; he's got jackalope on the menu... Oh wait, he's got Mountain Jackalope on the menu; much bigger and beefier. This scrawny Plains Jackalope wouldn't be worth the effort.

So many new things this time around, I can't even remember all of them. Wolf Tenor's interiors are a major (or is that "major general"? ;)) source of awesomeness. As is Bullethead's fire station. I liked the horse pucky scattered around the stables adjoining the station. Hmm, that 'teletype' machine thingy, upstairs in the fire station, looks a little futuristic for the early 1900s; lots of colored light indicators and such. Does a Time Machine figure into the history of the park? :P  I'm guessing in the 1920s, the horse-drawn fire wagons will be replaced with motorized trucks?

And the boardwalk area! Really well done. It looks and fells like an actual boardwalk from say, 1915. Not just the overall appearance, which is nostalgically beautiful, but the choice of attractions included as well. Hmm, do I sense another fire in the near future? Or maybe an earthquake? Or a herd of hungry jackalopes? (They eat wood, right?)

Gotta mention a couple of other things off the top of my head: Li'l Edna's flower planters made of toilets and old tires, and her assortment of tables and chairs, no two alike. Bulletheads iron bridges (wonderful!), Michaela's Chicken restaurant, with the (dumpster-diving raccoons) picnic area. I like the lanterns/lights hanging from the tree. The wing extensions of the hotel with the classic swimming pool. Von Steubens (Stoy-bens) restaurant; beautiful, and historically informative. The Swan Pavilion with its upstairs luxury apartment.

Like I said, so much new stuff to take in. Thanks for the tour, guys. :)

The presentation, the pictures, the storyline, everything about that is excellent!

However, seeing things up close and personal really seals the deal for me! This is an amazing work of art and one of the best posts on SGW!

Definitely recommend this to anyone who hasn't been following to look through this! Keep them coming Fisherman!

What a beautiful park!! I love the log flume a lot and the layout for the wooden coaster really fits the 1920's vibe. The attention to detail in the fun house is awesome. Seriously such great work here. :D

Great job.  The log flume and funhouse are my favorites, but everything you added this map was just amazing.  I stepped away from this project just in time, I would've been trampled by the talent!

Glad JP Marvel is still around making squirrel hats.  He certainly hasn't been building anything in Planet Coaster lately :P

Looks great! Love the updates.

BTW, Bisto is gravy. Daddies favorite sauce is like A1 or Worcestershire sauce.

Love the old-timey autos in the parking lot. That's something we haven't seen much of till now. The new park entrance building looks beautiful; the white and green colors look great.

I like how the Rusty Horseshoe restaurant is split-level. And the pink & white ice cream shop looks perfect.

The art deco Odeon Theatre is the bee's knees. I like how you introduced 'talkies' into the park during this time period. And oh my, the Rose Savoy Theater! Beautiful and sophisticated. It was nice to have Maj. Gen. Stanley Wolf give the tour. (Had to get his full title in.) I like the cat that's about to attack the chipmunk.

All of the structures in this episode are amazingly designed and realized. Very elegant. I LOVED the Penny Arcade games!

Just watched the video on YouTube on my TV!  WOW! You guys are doing a great job with the park!  So much to see even with the items you are not pointing out.  Get the biggest kick out of the commentary.  Shout out to all, watch the video on your big screen TV!  Can't wait to see Part 2.
