Submitting a recreation of a being-built coaster that we only have layout and horrible NL recreation?
I'm sorry to say I won't.

They don't ask a recreation, but a teaser video, with the musics, facts and logos they give.

Yeah I think I'll enter, since I live relatively close and was definitely going next year. With a season pass I'd also be able to take my at least one family member for free, so it'll save there too. The contest and prize is kinda a steal for the park, but I figure I like NL so while I'd prefer to continue my (slightly overwhelming) current projects right now, it won't hurt to delay them a little and put something together. I think I can do the scene pretty well without taking too much time...which is good because my Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Sunday evenings are booked through March at least, and I work 9-5 (which usually ends up being 9-5:45 or later lol).

Only thing I'm slightly worried about is the judges having no clue about anything. I entered another Hersheypark affiliated, national coaster contest (RCT2, a while ago) and won a candy bar with like 1000 other people, and the kid who took the first prize entered a TERRIBLE coaster...but he happened to be like 10 years old and live near Hershey. I call serious shenanigans on that one. With that said, I think the quality of the entry is much more important this time since I'm sure they want basically free advertising, so that makes me think the same thing won't happen. So I think I can take it...but there are a lot of talented designers around so we'll see what happens. I have a trick or two up my sleeves that should help too.

Too bad they didn't release the NL trains for the contest though. That would've been pretty awesome lol.

Perhaps I'll give this a shot. Doesn't look like a terribly complicated design.

Ask for real money then lol...though I will say, to be fair, you yourself like to take peoples' things without asking and use them how you please.

I would actually be glad if a real park stole my NL video for use everywhere. I would feel special!

Way to go HZ! I see that in the description they credited you. That's really cool!

That would make me feel special (like AJ), that's insane that they actually found your video and used it for a ride they're making.

I decided not to do it. Even if I make an awesome recreation, they'll end up picking something really dumb.

The winner was JetPulse, and his was an animation made in 3DSsMax. There is no download up for it.
