[RCT3] Snyder Lake

Postby ThrillDude200 » Sun Feb 17, 2019 10:11 am

In 1978, a man named Samuel Snyder visited Six Flags Over Texas. Impressed by the park, he decided to build his own theme park in his home town of Jackson, Mississippi. Little did he know that his little theme park would blossom into a thrill paradise for all ages.

CHAPTER 1: SNYDER LAKE
20190217093319_1.jpg

This was what the entrance to the park looked like back in 1980. If you entered the park today, you'd notice that the skyline has drastically changed.

The first ride you'd see was the Carousel, a nice ride for kids and adults alike. There were also some food and drink stalls.

After that, you'd walk on a bridge to the second part of the park. This bridge didn't have much, but it did have benches to sit down on and many photo ops.

Now THAT'S what I call love at first sight!

Once you got off the bridge, you'd enter into the topiary garden, which was accompanied by a pegasus statue and a large ferris wheel called Patriot Wheel!

At this point, you could either take a left or a right. Taking a right would put you in the midway, which had a Tilt-A-Whirl named Space Spin and a Bumper Cars ride.

However, at the end of the midway was a dark ride called Ghost House. This ride had excellent theming, and gave riders goosebumps all over their skin!

If you went to the left, though, you would be treated with a different ride...
20190217093830_1.jpg

The Gold Rush Mine Train, an Arrow Dynamics mine train coaster.

It didn't go very fast, and it also wasn't very thrilling.
20190217093910_1.jpg

However, it did give some amazing views, including a helix near some trees!
20190217093955_1.jpg

As you can see here, the ride was popular with guests!
20190217094124_1.jpg

So, that's all for 1980. Stay tuned for more years!

Author's Note: This is my 4th attempt at a storyline park. Hopefully it doesn't fail...

Samuel expected his park to leave guests with a smile, but he didn't expect for it to be a HIT! Lots of guests came just to ride Ghost House and Gold Rush Mine Train, which left him with lots of money, enough to add a new flat ride to the Midway in 1981.
20190224152632_1.jpg
This is Wave Swinger, a swing ride where you take a seat and then swing around in the air! Lots of guests praised the ride, and it was a star attraction at the park!
20190224153120_1.jpg
This may look like added scenery for Ghost House, but it is in fact a new drink stand called Dracula's Drinks!
20190224153107_1.jpg
You can get lots of drinks here, including Blood Punch! The service was also notable for being nice and kind.
20190224153209_1.jpg
As always, guests are enjoying the Gold Rush Mine Train, whether for it's thrills or for it's scenic views.
20190224153454_1.jpg
A set of riders on Space Spin, the Tilt-A-Whirl ride. Despite just being a carnival ride, it's theming drew in guests!
20190224154116_1.jpg
Finally, here's some of Ghost House's scenery. Whether it's a spooky or cheesy haunt depends on the person.

So, that's 1981! See you all next time!

1982
20190316155129_1.jpg
1981 was yet another successful season for Snyder Lake, with Wave Swinger thrilling many guests! However, guests began to have complaints about the park.
20190316155236_1.jpg
They began to complain that there weren't much rides for kids not ready to ride the thrill rides, and that most of the rides were in the Midway.
20190316160224_1.jpg
So, to remedy this, in 1982, a new Western-themed area adjacent to Gold Rush Mine Train was opened, including some food and drink stalls and...
20190316160437_1.jpg
West Wheel, a miniature version of the Patriot Wheel!
20190316160632_1.jpg
As seen here, the West Wheel gave off views of it's older brother, Patriot Wheel, and the Gold Rush Mine Train.
20190316161023_1.jpg
You could also see the West Wheel from the GRMT's helix.
20190316161109_1.jpg
However, the Midway still remained popular, with Dodgems, Space Spin, Wave Swinger, and Ghost House still attracting guests!
20190316161138_1.jpg
Finally, here's a shot of the two Ferris Wheels: Patriot Wheel and West Wheel!

1983
20190406131619_1.jpg
Once again, the fine folks at Snyder Lake struck gold with the new Wild West area! While it wasn't a smash hit, it still proved to be successful.
20190406133127_1.jpg
In 1983, they added a new flat ride to the Midway, Triple Trouble, an Eli Bridge Scrambler.
20190406133201_1.jpg
Named for the fact that it has 3 arms with 3 seats, Triple Trouble would spin you around and around.
20190406133242_1.jpg
As a result of the addition, the Midway now had 5 rides: Space Spin, Dodgems, Wave Swinger, Triple Trouble, and of course, Ghost House!
20190406133303_1.jpg
However, many people noticed that the park was beginning to clear land behind Patriot Wheel. A column of trees located in front of the ride had been shortened, leading many people to speculate on what the land will be used for.
20190406133325_1.jpg
Many people predicted a roller coaster, since the plot of land would be too big for a flat ride.
20190406133419_1.jpg
The plot of land could even be seen from Gold Rush Mine Train. If this turned out to be a coaster, then Gold Rush Mine Train would no longer be alone.
20190406133516_1.jpg
People were anxious to find out about what would go into that plot of land. Luckily, they would get their answer next year.
