First, before I get into the construction of my park’s newest ride, I wanted to provide an update on the ride I constructed for my last blog, The Marine Institute Expedition. I have finished the ride! Below is a screenshot, and the video can be found here.
But now, welcome to the Crystal Caverns Expedition!
Players begin by taking a slow boat ride into the Crystal Caverns mine, where they can see various geometric shapes… I mean jewels! I do plan on updating these with some custom shapes later, but for now, they look alright.
One of the key aspects to the Crystal Caverns ride is that it intersects with the park’s train system. In the Crystal Mine area is where riders first see the train (if they’re lucky).
After a brief ride through the lovely Crystal Mine, guests take a wrong turn and end up going down a waterfall.
At the bottom they are brought into a forest (built in a show building behind the mountain). Here they encounter a few bandits napping.
That is until they enter the canyon just beyond the forest, where they find themselves in the middle of a shootout.
The train can see the canyon fight as it passes through the mountain, but it is blocked by the canyon walls for riders of the flume.
After escaping the canyon battle, riders enter the processing center for all those gems we saw earlier!
Things are very calm, just some cowboys going about their daily work, until riders enter a room full of explosives where the two remaining survivors of the canyon battle are shooting wildly.
Plenty of explosions later riders board a lift hill (that will have more water effects later).
There is a section that has yet to be themed following this, but, before the final drop, riders get a pretty awesome view of the park. That wooden behemoth is the Main Street Coaster, and in red behind it is the Marine Institute Adventure (construction detailed here).
Still work to be done, but I’m really enjoying making this one! Like my galleries? Want updates on when new posts are published? Want to feed my ego? Subscribe and share below!
