Both rides look cute, and I like the water coaster idea. Make sure the intamin doesn't murder people with positive G's.

^^ I noticed one pretty noticeable jerk at the entrance of a 180 turn. Other than that, everything is, I think, not that bad.

Watercoaster is a neat idea, layout looks feasible for one too. Hope you keep at this as parks are a big undertaking!

I decided to make the supports based off how Mack Rides water coasters are supported.

The water coaster looks really neat. If you want to recreate the supports like the Mack water coaster I think you should incline the supports at the bottom of the helix a bit like the lower supports on this image:

^ I guess that it's rare to see inclined supports, not "typically" slanted ones. Good find! :)

You could use Xcelerator style supports - that'd fix your problem with the lower track and keep it looking neat.

Glad you went for the Xcellerator supports - they definitely work!

Yes, it is a B&M hyper, sorry if it was too easy.

Looks more Giavonola than anything. Are you worried about shaping?

I'll be dead honest the only thing at this point about the shaping is absolutely no straights. The entire drop is curved in some way shape or form. That's really the only thing it seems anymore. Though they do seem to love floater or 0G on the way down. Use the side view and G-force comb to make a good one :)
