I'm thinking of using CTRs for rides that have funky elements like Cannibal or Wicked.Trying to recreate those with RCT3's tools would be too much of a hassle IMO.

Oh ok, cool! So what exactly is/are CTRs?

EDIT: I found out what CTR's are. So are there specific track types you can use to get a more "cannibal" feel?

...Intamin I guess? The process is essentially converting a Nolimits coaster into a flat ride model to achieve a result like so:

That's pretty cool. So when you covert it like that does it operate in rct or is it a fixed object?

Managed to get Roller Coaster in there...I think. I may end up having to use a CT for it as well if I'm not able to build the rest of the park around it the way it is in real life.

I think I got the overall scale down though, measures just over 2500 feet long.

Really? I thought it was 2,500 ft. long. I can't really see how I could add another 1,600 feet to this layout without it looking totally out of proportion.

Lagoon claims it is only 2,500ft Long, and that is only so if you Measure it from an Satellite Map. The True Track Length is 3,598ft. Wink

Wait wait wait.... how is 1098 feet lost in the conversion from satellite length to ... where ever you got 3,598 are they not counting something like... seems a bit off

Satellite would not necessarily account for height changes.
