can we port this game to Kerbal please?

Mr. Bones approves.

I want him to let it run all the way through just to get the riders' reviews afterward.

Oh. Okay then.

Day One, Year One: We begin with high spirits on this grand adventure. My family, I thank you for your support as I leap into this glorious new world.

Day 47, Year Two: Today we mourn the loss of one of the passengers, who threw himself from the Grand Loop as we hit the apex. It was a sobering moment, as the realization hit that we still have nearly a decade left, God Willing my bladder holds out.

Day 6, Year Six: The company is down to four. The others have either been strangled in their sleep or thrown themselves from the car. Rations are holding, but the jars of urine have bloomed with the oddest of flora. We no longer even hear the cars and rails crack, nor notice the climbs and falls. I miss you Dear Wife. Why ever did I ever enter this mad endeavor?

Day 236, Year Eleven: Connor and are the only ones left. To be fair, Connor slit his own throat to escape this rolling Hell, but I refused to cast his body aside, as I need the company. He has been far more sporting a chap in our nightly game of checkers, as we have reached a period of relative calm, with only occasional dips and turns. My Good Wife, I despair that I will never see your smiling face, and that I abandoned you and the children for this Rolling Hell. May God forgive me, for I know that neither you nor I ever shall.

Day 300, Year Twelve. I missed the gate. Damn me to Hell, I missed the gate and have launched out for another trip around this never-ending Gehenna. I have resolved that once I pen this entry, I shall step from the car, and in the Ever After, I shall find my brave Cynthia to explain all. My children, I am deeply sorry to have not returned. May you favor your mother, and not the madness of your father. Be well, and know that while I regret this journey, you were always in my thoughts.

And now, I face Forever...

Roller Coaster 2 has broken down.

"GOD DAMMIT. THIS IS TAKING EVEN LONGER"

I love this so much.

My RCT go-to is the Pit of Despair (aka the Roach Motel), in which I make a single path from the entrance leading to a big hole in the ground with a one-way gate.  Sometimes I have Amnesty Minute, when I remove the one-way limitation and the guests stampede for the exit.  Usually, though, if a guest's pleas strike my sense of mercy just right and I'm feeling generous, I pluck them out and drop them in middle of the lake as temporary scenery for the Swan Boat Ride patrons.

The coaster's only purgatory; the line's the real hell.

So it's not really that extensive, it's just that slow. Meh.

My favorite torture on RCT3 is to build a popular pool, then delete all the changing rooms and build one above the pool so when the peeps exit they fall right back into the pool again and can never get out.
 
2019-01-13 02:15:31 PM  
Mr Bones did it first.
 
2019-01-13 02:20:18 PM  
And the hack for RCT3 is build all of your roller coasters underground.  It's a whole lot cheaper.

People still play with RCT??
Much more realistic with NoLimits or Planet Coaster.

Realism isn't everything. I love RCT for being RCT.

My cousin and I used to do this with Theme Park. We'd build a giant roller coaster and plant the exit on the other side so people couldn't get out. Usually we'd have to build walls and moats to keep the people from escaping. On the other side we put a ton of restaurants that served all ice drinks, salty as hell fries, and fatty hamburgers.

I think the only other thing we'd do was put tilt a whirls or similar rides to make people sick and then not have enough janitors to clean the place up. That would have been a digital hell for those people. Somehow people always managed to escape though.

You just described every 6-flags park I've ever visited.
