Thank you!  We are having lots of fun building this park! Glad you like the work the team has put together!

Thanks, Nemmie!!  :-[

Thank you! Just on the official Frontier forums and on some Discord servers.

Awww, thank you for that, Warcat!

Ha ha ha ha!  Thanks.  And yeah.  It has gotten a little too big for its britches, huh?  Time to start burning more things down.  :P

Thank you!

So glad you enjoyed it, JB!!  Thank you for your nice comments.  We always appreciate your detailed feedback.  I think you're our number one fan.  :D

Happy New Year, everyone!  Today, we proudly release the new park file for Rose Lake Park map 6, 1940 - 1949!

This park map represents the sixth 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.

In 1949, the park celebrated its 50th anniversary. That year also marked the end of a dark decade in the world as the allied nations continued to recover and rebuild from World War II. Rose Lake Park had become an enjoyable diversion during the war for folks at home and troops on leave, and then a top family destination once the war was over. The park even kept the ballpark open when all the boys went to war with their own Rose Lake Swans joining the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, their top rivals being the Plancovia Buttercups.

The park underwent some drastic changes during the 40s. The main Carousel Lawn area of the park became the Stanley Wolf Botanical Gardens, providing gorgeous vistas from the upper entrance area down into the main part of the park. To make room for the expansive gardens, several main street shops were relocated up to a new upper terrace overlooking the gardens from the west side. The Whip was relocated to the Boardwalk and given an all-new building by Red Line Rides Co. The Ferris Wheel was relocated across the path next to the Grasshopper and the Noah’s Ark was moved to the Fun Palace’s former corner and was given a thorough makeover with all new scenes and effects. Across from it was the brand-new Rotor thrill ride.

The Japanese Gardens became the delightful Storybook Village with its new puppet theater and train ride through nursery rhymes and stories for the kids. Down the path from Storybook Village were the new Teddy Bear junior wooden coaster and Kiddieland, which featured several Mangels kiddie rides and a kiddie mill with fanciful swan boats. Further down the path were the new Cuddle Up and games pavilion.

Lake Raamaw saw a few changes with Bearcat’s new entrance, a rowboat ride, and an all-new boathouse with a jazz bar on its upper level. The lake’s original 1899 boathouse and its upper apartment were converted into the fine dining establishment called the Mooring House. Across the way on the site where the Flying Turns once stood, the all-new Rose Lake Racer wooden coaster dominated the peninsula. And, on the far shore of Rose Lake, the park built an all-new Racing Derby Carousel, featuring high-speed horses that raced around the enormous ride. A new Eyerly Fly-O-Plane and Rock-O-Plane completed the area.

To celebrate the park’s 50th year in 1949, the park had a brand-new anniversary show in the Swan Pavilion amphitheater and grand fireworks show launched on Saturday nights from a barge on Rose Lake.

A year and a half in the making!  Whew!  Wolf Tenor, MattDownes, RedLine682, and I have been working hard on Map 6 (1940-1949) of Rose Lake Park and it is now complete!  The map will be released shortly, but for now, enjoy Episode 6 - Part 1 on YouTube and some screenshots showing off some cool new things highlighted in this first of two videos!

In the 40s, Fishington Field was home to the Rose Lake Swans girl's pro baseball team!  Here they are playing their arch rivals, the Plancovia Buttercups!

The all-new Storybook Village replaced the park's Japanese Garden!

The Teddy Bear junior woodie, built into the hillside next to the Dragon coaster!

New main street shops and restaurants!

And the gorgeous new Stanley Wolf Botanical Gardens!

Stay tuned for more!

I hid some of those noisy Adventure Pack gears underneath mine and it sounds very much like the real ride ha ha!

In other are some shots of the Rose Lake Racer, a John A. Miller Möbius track classic woodie, which dominates the peninsula where the Flying Turns once stood.

Yup!  Those are the modern spin-offs that combine a cuddle up with a whip car.  Disney did have the Francis' Ladybug Boogie ride, which was a true cuddle up, but they don't have it anymore.

I believe so.  Pretty neato.

Yeah they had sort of a do-si-do motion where the buckets switch from one rotating platform to the next

Here's a great video explaining how they worked.

How about cuddling up with some more screenshots?   ;)

nerd shots:

Yes.  For most of these new screenshots, I've been experimenting with swapping out the sky in Reshade.  ;)

Thanks!!  The curvy part of the cage is made of cables!   :o. Here are some closeups back when I first built it:

It's all spare parts, actually.  About six thousand, to be exact.  ha ha.

Here's a better photo of that ride.   ;)

21 mean this?  I'll try to get a clearer photo later.   ;)


Notice anything new in this shot?   :whistling:


Here are some more pics of the new Carousel Gardens, which changed the landscape of the park drastically in the 40s

Thanks, guys!  Citytrader, that boat ride is a Mangels boat ride.  Kennywood had a similar one with sailboats.  Trimpers still has one (maybe the last operating one?)  Mine is sort of a marriage of the two.

The bar at the top is there to keep the power cables up above the boats as they move around.  Two of the boats are powered and are connected to the cables and the other boats are towed behind those in a chain.  And the pole rotates around the top of the lighthouse as the whole assembly travels around.  It looks like Kennywood's only had one powered boat in its chain of boats.

This video has a clip of the boats at Trimpers in action:

Glad you noticed the garbage cans!   :clown:

The Leap Frog ride is a Mangels "Brownie Coaster."  They were an early version of the powered roller coaster for kids.  Like the boats, the lead car was powered via the cable and central pole and the other cars were towed around the oval track.

I based mine on the one that was at Bushkill Park:

Hmmm...I found these 2 Kiddie Land pics too.  Maybe you can spy some more rides?

In the late 40s, Rose Lake Park added a small Kiddie Land area.  See if you can spot some of the rides in these pics.  I'll try to show some more later.   ;)

Just a summer shower.   ;)  Thanks, guys.

The terrain changed quite a bit in the 1940s at Rose Lake Park.  Management decided to reduce the steepness of some of the pathways, and in the process they created some gorgeous new overlooks and vistas.

Thanks, guys!

The park is busy putting up decorations for the park's 50th anniversary celebration!  Can you guys believe it?!  1899 - 1949  Wow how time flies.
