It took me TEN YEARS to beat the Gravity Gardens scenario in #rollercoastertycoonclassic The objective in this Ivory Group park is to have a park value of $500,000, payoff your loan, and you can only build roller coasters, no other ride types. It's also a POP park. Most other scenarios are completed in 2 to 4 years.

Thanks to @seaworldtexas for the Facebook live construction tour of Wave Breaker, one of our top ten most anticipated roller coasters for 2017. It's going to be awesome twisting around right above the water!

This afternoon Lakemont Park in Altoona, Pennsylvania announced to the public that it would not open its gates for the 2017 summer season but will reopen on Friday, November 17, 2017 for the 21st Annual Holiday Lights On The Lake. Changes planned for Lakemont Park include replacing some of the older amusement rides with a new miniature golf course, batting cages, playgrounds, basketball and sand volleyball courts, and expanded picnic areas, while keeping and enhancing attractions, such as the waterpark, paddle boats, train, roller coasters, antique cars, and go-karts. These changes will give Lakemont Park the feel of a traditional community park, as well as a family entertainment center. It will also make the park affordable to all guests, as admission will be free and attractions will be available on a per use basis and in discounted packages.
Invadr @buschgardensva and Mystic Timbers @kingsislandpr have both started testing! Which of these two GCI creations are you more looking forward to riding?
