Love the farm feel to this park! Potato plough is really interesting. You've integrated each of the rides really well.

Looking awesome so far!  Are you going to have the ride at varying depths or mainly a surface/reef sort of look?

I love that shot of the car park with Werewolf in the background. You dont see stand-ups often nowadays. Park looks great so far.

The good thing about this format is the quick updates!

Mangrove Valley has had it first month as an amusement park come and go. What a quick month! (Felt like 2 days). The first step towards growth was the addition of rides to the park. As such our first expansion has been the purchase of a merry-go-round and a bumper cars attraction. These two classics are sitting next to the spiral slide and giant slide respectively. Hopefully this will draw people out into further areas of the park instead of being cramped in the main walkway.


The bumper cars ride, or as its been named, "Bumper Bash" had very little attention in its opening weeks. Hopefully this will improve.


The Merry-go-round was built on uneven terrain so the the land had to be flattened to allow construction. However, this allowed for the opportunity to actually pave the area! Long-term goals is to have the major pathways in the park paved. This should be a good start. Though it does stick out a bit now. (I also reckon I could do better with the "plaza" area outside the the Merry-go-round. I'll aim to address that soon). But crowds seemed keen to explore the new area.


Here's an overview of this month's additions. Small stepping stones as we continue to expand.


Here's some thoughts the guests have given us about the park so far. Clearly a big demand for more rides. We'll have to work on that.


Here's an aerial shot of all the land currently owned by the park. Current planning is for the pathway that branches off to "loop" around the giant slide and link back to the picnic area. Then have attractions branching off the main path. Any ideas?


Here's the apprentice objectives for the park. We've hit the park rating pretty quick (they ended up being easier than expected. Might make them more difficult).


And finally, here are our finances for the first month. Straight off the bat we can see that landscaping is going to be a large financial consideration in future development. Almost cost as much as the rides! No profit due to ride purchase. Hopefully these new rides will start to make an income.


That's all for this update. Exciting prospects ahead. We've still got money to spend but we need to remember that $6,000.00 loan. Could bite us in the back if we're not careful.  :no: Until next time! Happy April!

Wow thats looking amazing for your first post. Well done man. There dont seem to be a lot of flatrides though?
Love the colours of the invert.

I've had the pleasure of reading through the whole thread of this park. Such a fun thing to see someone actually play the game. Keen to try it out for myself.

Love the atmosphere you've got here. The animal part of the park blends really well with the amusement side of the park which is a credit to your theming.

I do think it would be worth smoothing out the banks of the river though. The sharp edges really stand out from the rest of the terrain.

Keen to see more developments!

I've gotten back into RCT3 the last couple weeks after a few years away from it. Durham Country Park inspired me to actually try and play the game instead of just building. Here's the results.

Formerly known as Mangrove Valley Miniature Golf, this small park only 2 Kilometres away from the highway became a beloved country golf park. Over the years of increasing profit, the owners purchased a handful of small rides from a run down carnival. The park is now going into its first year with a new outlook: To expand from a small golf park into a thriving amusement park.

Driving down the highway we approach the park. This first building you see however, is not part of the park.


Applegrove Cafe has been a family business for decades. They serve a variety of meals but are famous for their apple pie.


And now we arrive at the park. Due to their proximity, the cafe and former golf park share a car park (Classic floating trees in the background...)


Here is an overview of the current park. Humble and small, but full of dreams and curiosity. The mini golf course lies to the right of the entrance. Among the sheds that make up the entrance are information shacks, toilets and a first aid area. The newly bought rides have been set up along the West side of the park with a picnic area occupying the back end of the park.


The mini golf course that started it all. A 9-hole putter snaking through the woods (I used walls, logs and other scenery to make each hole different since there are only 6 holes available).


Here is an aerial shot of the map. It shows the major properties around the park. So far neighbours have been either supportive or just not interested in the parks development. Hopefully it stays this way! A river snakes its way through the landscape. Mountains begin to rise in the northern parts of the map (I intentionally landscaped before starting the park to attempt a more "natural" look). The blue area is the land owned by the park. Plenty of room for expansion before buying more land.


How will the park cope with the changes? We'll have to wait and find out.

Really happy to receive criticism on the theming and developments along the way. I do want to start of with a country fair sort of feel and slowly develop to a theme park with actual pavement and buildings that don't just look like sheds. Here's to new beginnings!  :)

Vodhin's vermont theme I believe. Although it may be his log cabin set. I don't quite remember, but I think it's the first one.

Thanks! I just found out I already have it... :-[
