Postby SixFlagsAstroworld » Wed Feb 24, 2016 11:12 am

If anyone has any questions about this park, feel free to PM me

Anyway, Here's where we start. It was 1973. A theme park called Lake Shernview was announced to be built. The construction started 3 months into 1974. A reporter (who happens to be a fan of theme parks) was granted permission to take photos of the park. Here are the photos:

Hi everyone! I'm Joe. I'm going to post updates about our newest park: Lake Shernview. Here's an overhead view of the park to start off.

I was allowed on top of the Parachute Tower (I think it's going to be called Sky Chuter or something) Here's the spiral slide

A shot of the Carousel. I heard it was moved from another park but I don't remember where.
Shot0004 (2).bmp
I probably should have lifted my camera up a little. This is the Park's entrance. I'm signing off now. More photos coming soon!

Hi everyone! Joe here! It has been 2 weeks since I took those construction photos. here's an update
Shot0005 (2).bmp
I forgot to take a picture of Sky Chuter in my last update, so here it is! They just finished repainting it yesterday. I like these colors better than the last one which was Yellow/red/blue.
Shot0006 (2).bmp
They Even repainted the carousel.
Shot0007 (2).bmp
I asked if they could repaint the slide, but the owner (Tyler McFlock) said that it's staying that way. This looks ugly.
Shot0008 (2).bmp
I noticed that there was a pit dug. I asked what it was for and Tyler said that it was for a water ride.
Shot0009 (2).bmp
The Sky Chuter was not done with the repainting yet so I took a photo from the slide.
Shot0011 (2).bmp
This was taken a few hours later. I asked Tyler why construction was taking a while and Tyler told me that he didn't have that much money to finish the park quickly so he used the cheapest construction crew possible. This construction could take a while.

Don't forget fences to make the park's boundary, so guests don't randomly walk away.
Also, adding trees and scenery will be good.
Try not to do updates too often. Maybe once or twice a week will be fine.

An okay start.

I'll look forward to the next update. Maybe the water ride's coming next?

Hi Everyone. I accidently deleted my game cleaning my computer. Fortunately, I do have a backup save file of this park. There might be a delay on the Tuesday update, but I'll get the updates out ASAP.

Thank you all who participates in this thread

Looks like you have a nice little start. Some advice:

I would focus on the little things initially. It's very easy to get carried away with big additions and all that (of course, that's the fun part), but small details like themed (or detailed/well-designed) queue lines, good fencing for your rides, vegetation, buildings, restrooms, food, and other things like that are essential to a realistic park. It's totally up to you in the end, though. I'm just suggesting what I've seen from other successful story parks as well as my parks.

I look forward to the next update!

Good news. I finally fixed the game. I took a couple of screenshots to last for the whole month (including spring break).
The park will start looking nice eventually. The update will be out sometime between 4:30 and 5:00

April,14th,1974

I came back to the construction on Lake Shernview. Here's an update
Shot0012 (2).bmp
Something looks different...
Shot0017 (2).bmp
They added a roof to the queue for Sky Chuter
Shot0013 (2).bmp
The Guest Relations building is complete
Shot0014 (2).bmp
The water ride is complete! Ladies and Gentlemen, Lake Shernview presents: SPLASH CHUTE! A Arrow Log Flume. They were running water through the course to make sure there are no leaks
Shot0015 (2).bmp
Parts for a roller coaster just arrived on site. What is it? Guess we need to wait until the next update.
Shot0016 (2).bmp
Once again, I'm ending the update with a overhead shot of the park. Until next time!
