Other than that, I'm keeping my mouth shut.
From the article: "It's an outstanding design. I think this young man may one day be a future roller coaster designer," said Andy Jacobs of the Hershey Company.
I don't even know what to do with that quote.
The backlash on the official forums is kinda funny.
The Mole said:
Not, "Sorry Gonchar."
More like, "Sorry to the other 1500 people who entered."
It does reek of a PR opportunity, doesn't it?
Just an RCT ego?
Heh. For the purposes of this contest, yes, just an RCT ego. :)
I wish I knew exactly where that kid lived so I punch him in the face.
Perhaps it's all the Iron City Beer, but I find that immeasurably funny.
Seriously, though, that's a terrible design, even for the 10 year olds category. Oh, well. Everything else about that game sucks, too. That's why I still play RCT2.
But, with that said... I think the design was extremely pathetic on any level. You'd think they were looking for something that fits in a tight spot with wicked curves, a high level of excitement, low nausea, and a realistic output. Nothing on there seemed realistic at all. I think he should have won the "participant" award like Lisa Simpson wins, but definately not one of the top 1499.
Then again, if that is your top winner... you got to wonder what the other entries were like!
I still can't beleave that it did not beat that stupid Blue Kangaroo coaster. :(:(:(
P.S. Did you notice that the Blue Kangaroo coaster is actully Purple!!! ;););)

However, I do realize its not really fair that they didnt tell you this, but it is their contest, a kid won it, end of story, move on; its peak coastering time, get out there and ride some rides :).
