Imaginary Parks

Sunday, May 19, 2002 3:35 PM
When you guys talk about imaginary parks (without RCT) how do you make them? Draw the layout on graph paper? Or what are some other ways besides that? Explain the process.

Roller Coasters or sports? I guess there are questions nobody can answer!

the back of my ancient history exercise book from school is full of little drawings and ideas including a really cool racing river rapids design and things like that

Between the ages of 5 and about 20 I made hundreds of imaginary parks. On posterboard or large art paper, I would first draw the parking lot and entrance, then a rough layout with pencil. Last I would pen and color (with colered pencils and markers) my completed map.

I would spend hours and hours a day doing this. Most of my inspiration would come from park maps from Kings Island, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, and Six flags parks. I always felt it was a very unusual hobby but I loved to do it. Allthough it was a lot of fun, I quit because I was getting very uncreative with it. I guess I outgrew it.

I just doodle coaster/ride ideas on a piece of notebook paper, and eventually get very good at drawing them. Then I think of names, put the rides together on a piece of paper (a park), and viola! a park!

Back in our teens, my buddies and I designed an imaginary park. We decided on coaster types, names, and themes. Since none of us were artists, there weren't any drawings. If I remember correctly, a few of the coasters were...

Black Hole - 10 inversion Arrow mega-looper with an enclosed, twisting first drop

Elemental - a racer with one side wood and the other side steel

Trident - a triple racer

Interceptor - a steel inverted with trains colored like the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds

We are the Detroit Red Wings. You WILL be defeated. Resistance is futile.

Imaginary Parks can be just that, figments of your imagination. My pet imaginary park, Dave's Dominion, has no park map, but it has a lot of thought put into it.

Rollercoaster lineup is as follows:
Dogfighter - 10 inversion Inverted with the unconventional seating.
Rattlesnake - Dueling Floorless coasters
Lumberjacker - a big long out and bck coaster with a switch track so the cars return on the outward leg backwards
Wizard's Workshop - A full size wooden twister/dark ride/ fun house combination
Toy Soldier - A miniature 1/4 scale replica of the Coney Island Cyclone, a kiddie coaster
GI Joe Vs. Barbie: Battle of the Sexes - Racing Coaster
Rocky Horror Roller Coaster - Inverted Standup
Andromeda - Wooden Standup
Juggernaut - a tangled mess of 8 different rollercoaster tracks, with 8 different type coasters: Inverted, Floorless, Standup, Suspended, Hypercoaster, Wooden, Flyer, Multi-Element. Entrance is through a coaster musuem.

And much, much more.

Well I just draw the layout on graph paper in study hall when im bord. Not draw the coaster but shade it in in the squares and different colors represent different things. On another paper I have coaster names with color, type, statistics (like speed, height, inversions ect...) and on the last section a 3 page timeline in essay form of my park.Well here are the coasters for my Park "Clarkson Park" (Clarkson is my last name. [I know what an original name!*Sarcasm*]---

built in 1958--Leap the Dips----Out and back woodie

built in 1972 --Super Corkscrew---- Classic corkscrew coaster

built in 1975--Wild and Crazy Rodents---- Plain Wooden Wild mouse coaster

built in 1986--Cherekee----Arrow Looper

built in 1994--Chronicle----Big B&M Inverted coaster with 9 inversions

built in 2001-- Green Gobblin--- Intimin hyper at 280ft

built in 2002-- Spongebob's Aqua Rider---- Kiddie coaster

built in 2003-- Relentlous-- Arrow 4-d

Roller Coasters or sports? I guess there are questions nobody can answer!

I just basicallt draw coasters on notebook paper,make a park on another piece,then glue the cutout coaster drawings onto the other piece. It really makes my techears mad when i draw coasters instead of doing work,but it makes me haPPy.

I also love making timelines for them.
