Been having fun on Planet Coaster, so I figured I show off some pics. Trying to make as realistic a park as I can, let me know what you think! I heavily use the workshop and alter the buildings from there, I can't imagine custom building everything.

I went with a custom terrain created by someone online so I would have the challenge of using terrain that was already in place. It made the game extremely fun and I had trouble fitting some things in. Highly recommend picking a terrain from the internet and playing off of it!

Image
Ticket Booths and Entrance.

Image
Parking and entrance road, along with the first coaster I built, Comet. This coaster ended up getting in the way later on but I really crammed in some rides in an exciting way because of it.

Image
The Mad House dark ride themed to a castle, and the classic Arrow Suspended.

Image
The back of the mad house ride, with the main show area being the large building to the left. Some employee parking garages as well. Had to place some scenery on existing "back stage" buildings to complete the look I wanted from the other side. Excited about the result.

Image
Moving further back in the park, entry to the arrow suspended on the left, and the entrance to the log flume. Space probably available for another coaster to the left.

Image
Want to try and fit a mystic timbers-type wooden coaster in the top left of this image. Going to be fun to make the entrance work with how crammed the area is.

Image
An old custom arrow through the woods. Right in the center of the park. Never really got in the way with other construction because it's so centralized, and I love the way it turned out.

Image
A top spin similar to the what used to be Tomb Raider at Kings Dominion. You can see the arrow coaster in the background, the train also fits in back there.

Image
The central river and arrow coaster interacting with the surroundings and creating some nice scenery.

Image
Newly added coaster. The only real modern coaster in the park so far. Hope to add another in the future. Just finished building this and am happy how it fit into the terrain perfectly.

Image
The "North Station" train station is hidden in the back there! Also very happy with how it fit so great into the space. Took some fidgeting but it worked!

Image
Top view, the largest building is a dark ride, the log flume indoor section to the left of that, and a small family coaster to the right of it. The other large building is the B&M Wing Coaster Station.
The large green space in the center needs to be something, but I'm unsure of what since it is a very large hill. Trying to build something like they would in real life, so I'm struggling to figure out what to do with the raised land.
You can also see the "beast"-like coaster all throughout the right of the image. Travels through hills and tunnels and finishes with a quite boring, drawn-out, helix that I'm disappointed about from a riders point-of-view. You can also see some of the river rapids ride squeezed in.

I'll update along the way with changes from here, and be taking some better pictures too. Park had 10,000 guests, but frames are now dropping with over 750 guests, so the park is quite empty at the moment, and I'm losing money quick because of it!

Thanks for reading!

Cool, I have not seen much activity on Planet Coaster on Here. I guess I could share some screenshots of one of the parks I have created. I am still working on my building/scenery skills.

The coasters in my park I can think of off the top of my head;

Bandit; GCI Wooden
Flashback; Vekoma Boomerang Standard
Wild Beast; PTC Woodie
Dominator; B&M Hyper

As you can tell this is a Cedar Fair fantasy park.

Looks fan-frigging-tastic, just like a real park. Awesome job so far!

^^looks like a perfect flashback!

^definitely do share! I love looking at some planet coaster parks. I’ll share this park for sure once complete, just want to add some additions which I’ll highlight on this thread as well. Always nice to see others looking at my park, makes it feel that much more real I guess.

Whole park looks really cool!

The new wooden looks like it absolutely tears through the layout too. Good job man.
