I was trying to keep it authentic and I was trying to make it so that the circus could fit in the inside of the rides finale just like at Old Chicago. I always had to sit on the top of the bleachers for the circus because every couple of minutes the Chicago Loop would fly right by a few feet behind me.

Yeah but an inverted launch coaster wouldn't work in my section themed to my growing up years as they didn't have them then. But thanks for the suggestion.

I decided to round out my Growing Up section with a recreation of Mr. Toads Wild Ride. The only problem is I have no idea how to add a roof to the building. If anyone has any idea how to do so please let me know.

Also I started on the Bond's World section by adding the Little Dipper airtime filled junior coaster.

place your roof section on the place you want it, press and hold shift, then move the mouse up. I don't know if that is what you wanted to know. but hope that helps.
God has a plan for us all, though sometimes we cannot see it, he has one and all you have to do is believe.

It's been a while since I messed around with my park so I hopped on tonight to play around a bit and ato add to my section for Bond. I added two things tonight.

The first are bumper boats which he has loved since he was first big enough to ride them.

The second thing is an S&S Double Shot named Double Shot after the game I'd play with Bond when he was little enough for me to do it. I'd sit him on my hand facing outward and then have a hand in front of him to secure him. Then I'd start throwing him up and pulling him down like an S&S Double Shot does. He'd grin and giggle whenever I did this and even now with him 6 and quite a bit heavier he still likes to play Double Shot.

I really like this park. Not for the usual reasons though. I really like it because everything in it has meaning. It is not just a collection of rides. It reminds me of something a friend once told me, "If you are going to collect something, make sure you do not collect for sheer quantity. It is a lot better to collect things that have meaning." Or something like that. So this park, IMO, is much better than any park that I have ever made simply for the fact that all my parks are simply a collection of rides that really have no meaning. This park has meaning and that generates interest from me and I am sure many other people.

I see you already have guests in your park. I always swear im going to hold off on opening till its DONE - but then I just can't! I open the park then just watch the people ride the rides, and their expressions when they get off. I never even get around to finishing it!

Anyways good job. I'd download it - but that means downloading it on this comp, burning it on a CD then taking it to my PC. So I'll wait till its totally done. It looks like its going to be an excellent park though!
