In RCTW, it is evident that we'll be seeing a lot of CS released on the workshop.




One of my favourites is Nemesis in Alton Towers.

A giant hole was dug to fit the ride into Alton Towers. It fits in so well with it's backstory and the ride itself is very thrilling.

My two favourite parts of theming on this ride are:
- Monster tentacles morphing into the track.
- Blood rivers (Sometimes looks like Ribena though)

The whole ride looks like one work of art, it all fits in. This is what I hope we'll be able to make in RCTW.


What are your favourite pieces of theming in real life and why?

Expedition Everest, it's not the most thrilling ride but it's pretty well done: (sorry for the small images, they are not mine)

You drop straight into the Kraken's mouth, and then you splash!

That would be a fun thing to model as custom scenery. I can imagine someone recreating that in RCTW with the CS. Not too sure about making it splash though, we'll see!

Speaking of KRAKE, have you rode Oblivion at Alton Towers? The whole queue line builds up to it. It's very similar to KRAKE and the themeing is very well done.


You drop down into a giant hole.

This won't be possible to make in RCTW at launch, but hopefully will be when tunnels are released. (I know this is real-world theme park discussion, but I couldn't resist :rolleyes:)

I love the theming of the rides in the Efteling. Espescially Dreamflight (http://www.efteling.co.uk/EN/thepark/attractions/attractions-Droomvlucht.html), Fata Morgana (
