Very nice! Very graceful coaster. I'll make sure Allie and Daniel ride it tomorrow.

Glad to see you on here, Bond. I was beginning to wonder if you would join. We've all seen your face all over the site, so it seems natural that you should be in the forum too!

Welcome, and I hope to meet you sometime this year!

We have seen Bond in a great number of photos so far, but finally it looks like he is really starting to be into adding his thoughts here. : )

Allie and Daniel loved it! Allie said it was a lot like Evel Knievel which is a coaster she really likes. Daniel wants to keep riding it.

It's SO good as Evel Knievel has made truly what he is, since he is already liking to build coasters in No Limits, yeah SFSTL's fancy woodie twister brought him an inspiration. : )

Nice coaster especially for a first! It reminded me of EK as well. If you have any questions about NL, feel free to ask them here, although it looks like you are off to a great start. Also, if (when) you guys do come down to SFSTL, let me know ahead of time, as I'll be running the rides in the north end of the park.

Bond did a good job with that coaster. I had to help smooth things out a bit and to help him bring his coaster to life as switching between No Limits different views in the editor was a bit confusing. But he's doing fine for a first ride.

Have Fun

I believe as No Limits truly gets him into the pure fun in making his own coasters, as he wants. So I now have got a feeling like he is gonna be sort of a great coaster builder through the site. Let's do see how it's going from now on. : )

Hello Bond, good to see you here at last! As OrangeWhip said, this is a very nice and graceful ride. It needs a little work smoothing out the corners, otherwise it's very smooth. The ride got faster as it progressed towards the end which is great, but the long straight section leading up to the final figure-of-eight seems to break up the action a bit too much. Try dividing it into four equal sections of track and then create 2 dips: the result is 3 pops of air. Also, you need to raise the base of your drop out of the station just a fraction: there are 2 sleepers sticking up through the track. Other than that, it's a great ride especially for a first design. Well done!

P.S. I'm curious: did you take any inspiration from other rides? It reminds me a little of Traver's Sesquicentennial Cyclone, which your dad recreated a few years back. :)

I completely agree with Woodpecker: if you add those dips it would give it that extra touch of air to /really/ give it the feel of a GCI. If you want I could make a video for those who don't have No Limits so they can check it out.
Keep up the good work, and we look forward to your future designs!

I'm new to this site so I'm not sure how to upload NL tracks. So here goes. This first coaster I'm uploading is called Anabolic ATV. ATV because it rides close to the ground most of the way and Anabolic, well, after you ride it you'll see why I called this a roller coaster on steroids.

I'm new to Negative-G and this is my first No Limits roller coaster I'm adding to this site.

I'm uploading my first coaster to this site. It's available on some other sites but I've decided to at it to this one because I see there are people on this site that aren't on the other sites. I've zipped this 3MB track down to about 500KB so it should be easy to downloat.

Very cool Bond. Much better than my first couple I made. Instead of actually studying the program I tried to go way too extreme and made rides that would probably kill people lol. It takes time, but it's not hard to pick up. Before you know it you'll be like me and spending hours building coasters lol.
