    Not sure if anyone else has been following the construction of Baron 1898 at efteling but they finally started testing and it looks really awesome. I really hope that dive coasters are included in RCTW and the ability to have great scenery like on baron

    I really don't like this years dive coasters, they were expensive to build and are too short and not tall enaugh for the money invested. It's practically a drop, 2 small inversions, a turn and a bunny hop, over. Few second of ride time and this is it and if we are hones, everything after the first drop is pretty much crap. It's the same for Baron and Oblivion in Gardaland. The only thing I like in both of them is theming, everything else is a huge waste of money, because you could get much better coasters for the money they invested.

    I am very interested in rollercoasters so I read those daily:
    - http://www.reddit.com/r/rollercoasters/ (subreddit for rollercoaster news, pictures, speculations, articles - it's a fast read as opposed to forums where you have to read through all posts)
    - http://www.reddit.com/r/themepark/
    - http://www.theparks.it/ (Italian, but I read it because Gardlaand and Mirabilandia are my "local" parks)
    - http://www.themeparkreview.com/ (forum for all parks arround the world)
    - http://www.coasterforce.com/ (very good news source)

    Best way for construction updates is typing the ride into youtube an filtering it to "this week" and whilst I agree the rides are short I still think it looks pretty awesome, good rides don't have to be tall and fast...

    So we have dutchies around here? Dutchies Unite!

    No but seriously tho, im a huge fan of the Efteling and I like to see this and ride this track. However, I must agree. The ride is short and after the drop, not much good will come. But I think that you need to have the possibility to have this kind of ride. Short but strong. I think (if you look to the wooden rollercoaster of the Efteling, which is long) Rollercoasters are not much after the drop. None of the Rollercoasters will give you the shocking effect the drop will give you. Only this time, the drop is larger and the "boring" time is shorter. I actually like these kind of Rollercoasters

    Wow! When I first heard of a graphics overhaul, I didn't know what to expect. But Area52 really went all out with graphics! I can't believe how smooth and crisp everything runs! Congrats Mattlab!!

    Hey, wait a minute! This isn't the game? What's this doing in the Rollercoaster Tycoon World forum?
    I propose that there be some "OTHER forum" with a sort of "Community Chat" for this kind of thing.
    That would be a great idea!

    Well this "general discussion" area doesn't necessarily have to be about the game because it is an general discussion area...simple

    Community chat is a graveyard anyway.
