Oakwood Amusement Park[RCT3]

Postby Kinderly » Sun Sep 30, 2012 1:21 pm

In 1989 the Oakwood Amusement park was built. It started out as a small family owned park with a mainstreet, and a ferris wheel. The family had to sell the park due to money troubles. A buyer was found not to long after. He wanted to expand the park with a major attraction, A Schwarzkopf looping roller coaster named Century. Century was a big hit although it was a major investment. The park fell into again money troubles. Oakwood was put up for sale for the second time in its life. A buyer was never found and 15 years later this is what has become of it.

Image
Looking out above the trees, some large structures can be seen.

Image
This is Oakwood Amusement Park. The entrance, and Market Street's buildings have faded. It's not very secure. So I ventured inside.

Image
The old bell tower. It has lost most of its exterior stucco, and the wood framing is all that is left.

Image
Looking over to the left of Market Street is Century the roller coaster that tossed this park into abandonment.

Image
It was a thrilling ride, Century was originally red and white. It is now faded and rusting.

Image
The coaster looms over the trashed pathway below.

Image
One of Century's trains. Stuck on the final brake run, left to rust.

Image
Well whats this? Someone else is exploring the park, but what for?

Well thats an intresting...and somewhat depressing way to start an RCT3 park..It looks very good through! The Schwarzkopf looks great from where I'm standing.

Well, it looks like the person we saw exploring the park last time was exploring to buy.

Image
Not much has happened here since last time.

Image
I don't believe I showed you the ferris wheel. The only thing left are the a-frames.

Image
But wait looks like something may have happened after all.

Image
Century's station has been restored except for the original paint colors.

Image
Some of Century's track has been re-painted blue,and white.

Hopefully next time we will hear some news about who bought the park.

I really like your way of starting off the story of this park.
The coaster itself looks good too.

Can't wait to see and read more!

Hello again! I am really excited to show you two things that have changed in the park.

Image
The forever changed skyline from the parking lot.

Image
The new log flume, Sawmill Falls, is testing and almost ready for re-opening day!

Image
We have installed fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo for those who have belongings that can't get wet.

Image
Century has gotten new track, and a new sign!

Image
The station, and sign for Sawmill Falls.

Final preparations are in order for opening day! We just have to pass inspection!

It's time for re-opening day! Everything is in place, and we passed final inspection.

Image
Guests arrived very early. I guess they've always wanted to come back!

Image
Later in the day the park was packed! I couldn't believe how many people knew about this park.

Image
Many people headed over to Century.

Image
I would've ridden myself but It looked too intense.

Image
Sawmill Falls was doing pretty well also. It was a very hot day so I rode.

Image
Even the Ferris Wheel was popular.

Image
I got a great shot of Century coming down the first drop.

Image
Festivities continued on through the night.

Image
I decided to head out at about 9:40, it was getting late.

Image
See you next time!

Oh come on no comments? :cry:
____________________________________
Today everyone I have some unfortunate news. Century has been closed for the rest of the season.

Image
This is where it happened. Some idiotic teenager was having fun by hanging below the rails above the queue. One of Century's trains rolled over and took the boy's left hand. The parents are suing.

Image
How are we going to stay open? Our star attraction is closed, and its getting to cold for some to ride Sawmill Falls.

Image
There is no train to roll down the first hill.

Image
There are no screams echoing across the forests.

Image
Will we see Century next season? I don't know. Although we can invest in a small flat ride for next season.

Hope to see you all next time.
