    NEW Flat Ride Preview - The Twister



    For the amusement park purists, we present to you Ė The Twister! This medium intensity ride is perfect for the whole Peep family. What you're looking at is the fully rendered Twister that you'll find in-game!

    It is brilliant! Tempted to give it a 10/10.

    This makes the Orbit Spinner look a little worse, as this seems that next extra step of realism, as this ride can be seen in many places in real life. But I think it is good to have a mix of both to cater for different styles.


    I like how this isn't overly themed to a specific genre and how this ride exists in many places in real life. This ride is nice and generic and can be used in any theme really. I'm really pleased with this!

    You're right. But I confess I'm starting to love the themed rides cause now we can REALLY create themed areas as we have not only themed rides but also themed stalls (and probably restaurants too), themed stations for roller coasters, I wish we had transport rides to connect different park areas.

    Another cool ride, nice to see things are moving along.
    Do these recent reveals mean we are getting close to our next dip into the game? I sure hope so.

    Me too! Small and gentle sqeeks of a ride in operation.
    Those are details I'm looking forward to!

    I like how it looks, but I don't like the animations. The cars should swing and the way the ride starts isn't right. In reality a ride like this starts by spinning and then the arms go up. If you watch 1 video of a ride like this in real life you should notice these kind of things. Nothing that isn't easily improved but I don't get why this isn't perfect yet, considering the game would've released a month ago.

    The fixed entrance and exits suck IMO. I'll miss placing those.

    If I could suggest one improvement: The individual cars need to be able to swing. Right now they look like they remain in a fixed position.

    ^Here's one in Selva Magica that follows the same ride program as RCTW's. (Lift before Spin)

    Never seen that ride start like that. The animation still looks a little bit off, like it's going too fast or something. I guess when the cars swing it won't be such a big deal.
