View Full Version : Look what happened at our park! Lurkland [Forum Game]

01-28-2016, 09:33 AM
It's time for a forum game!


We have all been left managers of a park named Lurkland, the park that never closes, no matter what.

In each reply you make, include two actions:

1) Create a RESPONSE ACTION to the last person's event
Example: JMR lowered the price of the burger food stall that X just made.

2) Create a new EVENT occurrence
Example 1: *Guests are getting tired, consider placing more benches.*
Example 2: *JMR built a new Twister flat ride and placed it near the park entrence*

Don't double post! Be as creative as you can! Have fun!

Let the chaos commence...

01-28-2016, 09:35 AM
Lurkland is now open and will remain open for the foreseeable future!

I'll go first...

*JMR built some path from the entrence*

*Guests are complaining about getting bored, they paid an entry fee of $50 to get in, yet there is nothing for them to do.*

The Inspector
01-28-2016, 11:50 AM
*The Inspector concluded that the park should be closed for now and reopened once Lurkland can provide an enjoyable day out.*

*The Inspector now decided to line the entrance path with Large Douglas Firs, and placed a round fountain at the end, which has path around it.*

01-28-2016, 11:55 AM
*Ddrplaya4638 placed a bathroom by the entrance amongst the Douglas Firs*

* The paths still look empty*

01-28-2016, 12:06 PM
Remember, lurkland can never close! Lurkland is still open!

*JMR built benches along the path to allow peeps to rest whilst they wait for new developments*

*Peeps are starting to form mini-protests, demanding refunds, they're hungry, they're bored*

The Inspector
01-28-2016, 12:14 PM
*The Inspector, used to his suggestions being ignored, and frankly just happy that no one has attempted to drown him yet, decides to tell the angry crowd that this is just the beta park, and the real thing will of course be much better. Refunds are given to those who request one.*

*The paths still look empty!*

01-28-2016, 12:20 PM
*JMR sets the entry fee to $0*

*JMR builds a circus opposite the large Douglas fir trees, admission price is $5*

01-28-2016, 01:26 PM
*DDR builds a quene line winding throughout the trees conntecting to entrance path*

* I think the guests would like to see some more scenery along the line*

01-28-2016, 04:54 PM
*DoctorPelusa Starts builds some 70s facade shops along the path leading the the Douglas plaza, but stalls are still empty, and there are no employees in there.

* Peeps, still angry for the lack of something to do, have vandalized the building, and painted walls with graffiti.

01-28-2016, 05:09 PM
* JMR hires security guards and sets them to patrol around the stalls and circus. Several guests have been detained. JMR also employed new people to work at the shops.*

* One of the cooks working at a burger stall was very rude to a guest, they told the guest that if they didn't like the food, they should make it themselves. It seems like they lack training. *

The Inspector
01-28-2016, 05:15 PM
*The Inspector angrily places a 'No Entry' sign across the entrance path, the guests filter out of the rest of the park and into a small section by the entrance in which they are allowed. Janitor 1 and Janitor 2 are hired to clean up the mess in the buildings.*

*Lurkland and Gerstlauer are discussing the possibility of an Infinity Coaster being installed on the cheap as the first signature attraction. The location and specifications of the coaster will be decided in the future once more of the park has been established.*

The Inspector
01-28-2016, 05:20 PM
I feared this would happen at some stage. JMR and I both replied to the same one. What happens now?

01-28-2016, 05:32 PM
Freez places a few cheap family rides near the entrance and sets a fenced area for the infinity coaster.

01-28-2016, 05:32 PM
That's a good question...I guess we just continue on with freeze.

Coming soon posters begin to be placed on the fences along with advertisements being sent out to the public. A Plaza before the coasters soon to be entrance is erected.

01-28-2016, 05:43 PM
Freez extends the path way and begins to build a building to house a new dark ride themed as a space theme.

01-28-2016, 05:56 PM
Ddr builds a new space themed arch leading to the space building.

Ddr talks to management about building a new generic ride in the mean time.

01-28-2016, 06:06 PM
*A brand new simulator, based on star wars space battles is being built on the space area, together with the dark ride building that's been built will create a thematic area with name tbd*

*Further analysis on the acounts, reveals the park has spent too much on new rides and is having huge losses to pay contractors, and there's no more cash on the accounts, the manager DoctorPelusa announced this morning that the Gerstlauer coaster proyect has been paralyzed until some credit is achieved*

01-28-2016, 06:06 PM
I feared this would happen at some stage. JMR and I both replied to the same one. What happens now?

The first person that posts will keep their reply and then the others removed. I'll keep yours there for now, but just for future notice. :)

*JMR raises the park entry fee to $15*

*A new marketing strategy is proposed to advertise the theme park on the motorway near by, awaiting approval by other managers.*

01-28-2016, 06:21 PM
*Managers have agreed to the decision of increasing the adversiting budget, new advert near the motorway is in it's place, and flyers are given out at schools on some nearby towns*

*Unfortunately, the managers have not yet get to an agreement, on what should be the name of the upcoming space area; on the meeting the need for park mascots to hand out the flyers arises, a set of character needs to be decided, but the team has agreed the park is not on a proper situation to pay royalties, another solution needs to be studied...*

01-28-2016, 08:02 PM
Shirty proposes the space zone to be called "The Nebulon Sector" and his avatar (my first ever character model which is based on a plush toy) to be formed into the mascot to help save money on mascot designers

Unfortunately the space simulator has just broken down, it was 2nd hand and cheap, there seems to be nobody around who can fix it

01-28-2016, 08:18 PM
*2 new mechanics were hired this morning, the breakdown at the simulator resulted in a old bulb at the proyector, anyone could have noticed, but the management comitee decides to keep the two mechanics, just in case*

*The interactive dark ride built by Sally Corp in the now oficially "Nebulon Sector" was inaugurated in a big ceremony this evening, unfortunately no press was invited, and the managers wonder how can they increase the attendance after the failed inauguration*

01-28-2016, 08:36 PM
One of the managers family members works for a online news blog. They write up a nice article about the new dark ride.

In order to accommodate more guests we place some more path essentials on the walkways.

01-28-2016, 09:00 PM
*Things are starting to go better, the park is making enough money to sustain itself, and the managers have reopened negotiations with Gerstlauer to begin the work on the infinity coaster, on the meeting the comitee agreed with Gerstlauer to build a 1170 model, instead of a custom model in order to reduce costs, a big loan was asked to begin with the work*

* In order to open access to the new area which will hold the coaster, the Telecombat ride that was near the entrance will be moved to "Nebulon Sector" and rethemed to fit it's new area, a new shop at the exit of the dark ride is already being worked, they can scan your face and print it 3-D!, people start complaining for loosing a ride, and the new area and theming of the coaster needs to be determined before further work *

01-28-2016, 09:07 PM
The gift shop is a huge success. Projected monthly profits are enough for us to start themeing for out coaster area. Ddr suggests a jurassic theme to counteract the scifi area.

On top of all of our success there is one bad thibg. A vandal is on the lose in our park.

01-29-2016, 07:40 AM
* Kombiice builds a new, but unsafe kiddy coaster. *

* One guest flew away while riding it (he survived though) *

01-29-2016, 07:59 AM
*DoctorPelusa called the police to help capturing the vandal on the park, unfortunately they realiced what happened in the kiddie coaster and the coaster has now a police precint until further action is taken*

*The vandal is still on the lose*

01-29-2016, 08:08 AM
Ddr noticed our park rating is starting to slip because of the accident and the vandal so we hire an entertainer to "distract" the peeps.

The vandal strikes again graffiti logo of a rival park all over our entrance.

The Inspector
01-29-2016, 08:31 AM
The Inspector catches the vandal in action, but upon being seen, the vandal runs away. Unable to give chase due to a recent back operation, The Inspector angrily waves his fist at the vandal.

Park management are considering the future of the unsafe kiddie coaster, and are contemplating an underhand deal with a Chinese park who will be willing to buy it at a discounted price.

01-29-2016, 10:11 AM
Due to its poor history in our park we decide to sell the kiddie coaster for a pretty penny we use some of the money we made to offset hiring costs for a real security gourd to help with our vandal troubles.

Maybe we should use the rest of the money to buy something to take its place?

01-29-2016, 02:22 PM
* JMR installs security cameras throughout the area. Now vandals shouldn't be much more of a problem, now the security guards can easily catch them. It should only be a matter of time until that pesky vandal is caught in the act. *

* The queue for both the circus and simulator are full, peeps very upset because they cannot fit into the queue. The queue can only hold max 40 people for the circus and 20 for the simulator. *

Note to next manager: There is some spare cash available to invest into a new ride since the kiddie coaster was sold.

01-29-2016, 02:35 PM
Holding more peeps is a priority as compared to building a new ride so The queues were extended to triple the amount of people allowed in each line. The queues were decorated with new scenery items pertaining to the areas theme.

Construction fences are built where the kiddie coaster was what does it hold?

01-29-2016, 03:21 PM
The negotiations with Gerstlauer are complete and the work begins on the new coaster in the fenced off area. The coaster isn't anything special but its seen as a step in the right direction for Lurkland. A theme for the coaster and surrounding area is still to be confirmed.

The security cameras have seen the vandal setting fire to the circus big top. The vandal was caught and handed over to the police but the big top has suffered serious damage. Fortunately thanks to the early warning no guests were injured.

01-29-2016, 03:44 PM
*Following the initial plan, the new Infinity Coaster, and a small junior coaster both manufactured by Gerstrlauer will be part of the new jurasic area of the park, and effectively increasing the park to three themed areas, Nebulon Sector, 70s Boulevard, and Jurasic World. The works on the Jurasic Area are planned to be finished for post #36*

*Due to the damage on the big top, high winds have completely destroyed the circus; maybe now it's the time to answer the complaints of that animalist groups and place something in it's place, althought rebuilding it is probably the cheapest solution*

*DoctorPelusa proposed to build a replica of Grauman's Chinese Theatre, with a polivalent theatre inside where acrobats may perform circus performances, or movies can be shown, the cost is worriyng the management board, and a final decission hasn't been taken*

01-29-2016, 03:54 PM
*The dark ride inside the Nebulon Sector, had an emergency stop due to technical difficulties with the lighting and chain lift.*

01-29-2016, 04:19 PM
*Everyone was evacuated safely from the dark ride.

Replacing the defunct kiddie coaster a Jurassic themed top spin will be erected behind the previously cleared site. This has been revealed to the public as well as the footers for our Infinity Coaster being placed.

01-29-2016, 05:04 PM
*Bad weather has caused a delay on the works at the jurasic area, inauguration has been delayed for post #37, the junior coaster is already done, but further work on theming is needed on the junior coaster and top spin, a small candy shop is already built between them*

*The park customer care service is filled with complains on the delays, and the lack of a replacement for the circus. The comitee has agreed to take action on circus/theatre topic for next post*

01-29-2016, 05:17 PM
*The manager had a discussion with press whether the classic dark ride in the Nebulon Sector should be removed or not, they have come to conclusion that the ride will seek renovations and will be removed from the Nebulon Sector as a standalone ride named Gold Rush, as its theming will be converted. Construction will begin at Post 38

01-29-2016, 09:47 PM
*Construction of Goldrush begins and will be completed at Post 40*

*The workmen clear the site for replacement of the circus; the tent will be bigger and house more guest coming to see the show.*

*Meanwhile, a food court is being constructed as well a spiral slide.*

01-30-2016, 11:11 AM
Please try to stick to one action and one event only and please try not to post twice consecutively.

* JMR increases the park entry fee to $25 *

* Guests are complaining "ew... look at all this trash!" Outside the foodcourt. We have no bins and no janitors. *

01-30-2016, 12:51 PM
Due to costs of hiring janitors the unveiling of Goldrush has been delayed to post 42

How many Janitors should we hire Ddr vote for 3 one just for the food court, and two for the rest of our park for now.

01-30-2016, 07:59 PM
*Kombiice invites a vip to get more guests in the park*

*One guy noticed that the vip is faked and many people are asking for refund*

02-02-2016, 03:40 PM
Magicart87 thinks there are other ways to make money. We simply can not take guests money without providing more rides for them to enjoy. As such LurkLand officially unveiled the GoldRush coaster with grand ribbon cutting ceremony by VIP #44 and vows to make more rides, somehow.

Guest Morale is up! But so is Guest Nausea. It seems GoldRush is making Peeps sick. Where are those new janitors?

02-02-2016, 03:50 PM
* JMR hires 5 new Janitors and sets them to patrol around outside the GoldRush coaster. That should rid of all that puke. *

* Peeps don't feel so good, perhaps it's from holding themselves in from going to the bathroom for so long? VIP #44 is disgusted with the lack of toilets. *

02-02-2016, 04:02 PM
* DDr thinks that there are plenty of bushes for them to use but I guess we should buy some bathrooms. One by Goldrush, One by the entrance, and one in our space area for a total of three.

* VIP #44 told one of our new janitors that he wants to see more trash cans around the park.

02-02-2016, 04:10 PM
*Magicart decides to charge guests for restroom use to help pay for more trashcans. He installs a coin-op machine on each restroom door. The cost: .50 cents. In less than 24 hours Lurkland has has netted a profit of 700 dollars. With that we were able to order 10 trash cans! At this rate we....

It seems that charging for restrooms has made guests rather angry.

02-02-2016, 04:14 PM
*Now that we offset our cans, DDr decides to stop charging for the can.
* Our bathrooms are poorly decorated though and they stick out like a sore thumb.

02-03-2016, 02:07 AM
*Kombiice decides to decorate the neon blue toilets with leafs, grass and some dirt to gain a tropical theming !!*

*People seam to like it, but some smaller customers build slides on toilets out of dirt*

02-03-2016, 12:03 PM
As tempting as it is to keep the toilet slides ddr builds a giant slide by the infinity coaster.

How should we theme it? People say it looks boring.

02-03-2016, 12:22 PM
* JMR paints the whole slide red and puts long, gray sheets of plastic on the outside of the slide. The slide is also given a sign "The Volcano" *

* A news presenter enters the park, here to give everyone an insight on what this new park, Lurkland is like. -- Let's not upset her. *

02-03-2016, 12:28 PM
*DDR thinks this could be an amazing press opportunity. We give her front of the line passes along with any refreshments from the park she desires.

* Maybe we could get her to take some pictures as an advertisement?

02-03-2016, 01:30 PM
* We got her taking pictures of the new red slide with giving her a coupong ( 2 for 1 entrance ticket )

* Many kids annoy their parents until they finally get into the park. Parents leave the park but paid the entrance fee. Now there are almost just kids *

02-06-2016, 01:33 PM
* Kombiice builds a Merry go round *

* Park gets a lot of money but has a problem with the huge amount of kids now *

02-06-2016, 01:37 PM
Ddr suggests expanding the space area to include a new coaster.

With the influx of children the paths start being littered with throw up from rides.

02-06-2016, 03:52 PM
* Kombiice gets some more janitors in the park *

* The kids trap the janitors and make fun of them *

02-15-2016, 02:50 PM
* Kombiice raises salery *

* running out of money in the kid captured Theme Park *
