Coaster Addict – The Dueling Mountain

2017-07-19 (12).pngHello and welcome to another edition of Coaster Addict, the blog where I post pictures from my latest bout of shameless Planet Coaster binge. With the arrival of the summer update, I once again started a new park, sadly leaving the Crystal Caverns Log Flume behind (video of finished ride), and striking out for a new park where I could mix terrain. I knew from the very first path placement that the first ride of this park was going to be a dueling coaster inside a mountain, inspired by Disneyland’s Matterhorn.

As you pass through the main gates, the mountain is immediately visible

Terrain sculpting takes time, but I think it’s starting to look good

WIP shot of the queue building

For the storyline behind my mountain I wanted to keep it simple: Mountaineers climb to the top, are attacked by monstrous snowmen (because my 3d modeling skills aren’t good enough for a yeti), and then escape to the bottom on bobsleds. As a result, I have themed the queue as a sort of a mountaineering hub, with climbing gear, maps, and a few blurry photos of the yeti!

Throughout the mountain, riders have various encounters with the mighty (more derpy than anything) snow beasts, as the coaster careens down to safety.

You can’t see him now, but there’s a snow monster hiding in that darkness…

The train is just resting right?

That’s it for now! The mountain is almost finished, just need to fix the lighting on a few more areas and add some details. I’ll have a video up soon! If you like these blogs and want to feed my ego, subscribe, share, like, etc. Thanks for reading and see you next time!
