Hello, I'd like to share with you my next project; an amusement park set atop a pier. The main attraction, a Gravity Group hybrid shuttle roller coaster, is set among several thrill rides and intertwines with the rest of the pier to make a unique sprawling atmosphere.

The woodie needs a name.. I like the color of the supports, handrails, and catwalks, but the cars would need to be changed to match the theme. Any suggestions?

While the woodie is the focus, I do want to flesh out the remaining space on the pier; such as queue lines, lights, benches, trashcans, stalls, restrooms, and so on. The inside of the arcade will likely stay blank, partly to save frames and partly because it'll never get done if I fill in every detail I can think of. Things that are priority will be things you can see from the woodie and the queue lines associated with it.

The roller coaster rides just as much backward, if not more, than it does forward. Lots of quick airtime moments, some floater some ejector, and a few moments of laterals are met with fast pacing overall. Some of the ride was made with force sections, some with geometric; mostly it was a matter of a specific piece of the track. Getting the shaping right was an interesting process, but I think I've done an alright job emulating their style.

I have a good foundation for what I want, with trackwork I'm really happy with, so it'll just be a matter of staying motivated to finish the details of this project.

I also think I'll be naming the ride "Blacktip" for the blacktip reef shark that lurks in some of the Pacific waters outside California. The cars are blue for now (not turquoise); ambition says I'll make a cartexture, perhaps with a logo, we'll see what reality says when I get there. :P
The sunset direction happens to line up with a California coastal location, so for now we'll just call it Southern California. I'll snoop around for a cozy bay or something in that area to emulate.

Looks cute so far. I take it the woodie is based off of that Switchback ride?
