West view park closed for good when I was 12 years old. I really miss the place and was wondering if you could have any clue how to find Plans/blueprints for the parks 2 adult coasters, the Dipper and the Racing Whippet. I would like tem as memoribillia and would lik to try converting them to the RCT game.
BTW How is RCT 3? I was kinda pissed after forking for RCT 2 and found not much new so i have not yet got RCT 3.
Also, you might want to ask your RCT question in the RCT forum and limit your posts to one topic only.
Good luck in your search for West View Park info ;)
The book's for sale at Kennywood's gift shops, and presumably in the local interest sections of behemoth bookstores.
The Dips was an out and back coaster similar to Conneaut Lake's Blue Streak but with a wicked hairpin turn at the turnaround point. The Racing Whippet was a ravine coaster with the station on a bridge over the ravine. Like Kennywood's racer, it had one continuous track with the trains reversing sides after each circuit. Both coasters used trains like the ones on Kennywood's Jack Rabbit.
I once did a Dips fir TCT2 but never posted it. Maybe some time I will get around to doing this.
