Coaster Addict – Haunted House
Hello, and welcome to the latest edition of Coaster Addict, a blog series where I share screenshots of my latest Planet Coaster ride and rant a bit about the story I’m trying to tell. As it is close to Halloween, and Frontier recently released the Spooky Pack, it seemed only right to try my hand at creating a haunted house ride using the new Huntsman track ride.
So, beginning at the beginning! Riders board their vehicles in a long entry room with two crackling fireplaces, a pair of lounging skeletons, and some suspect books that just won’t stay on their shelves.
Next, they are taken to the entryway, where we have a creepy rocking chair, floating candles, and some curtains that mysteeerioouuusly blow without wind. Really trying to hit all of the haunted house tropes here.
The cars curve around a winding staircase and find themselves face-to-face with the haunted library, filled with skeletons trying to manage a peevish poltergeist that just doesn’t like order.
Of course at the end of the library we have the knight’s tomb, because that’s what rich mansion owners do with their extra space right? Keep open caskets of long dead nights? It’s good feng shui.
Of course, no rich mansion is complete without a dungeon, complete with tortured skeletons and “captured spiders”
I say “captured” because the next scene I am working on is the spider room, where the mansion owner’s pets have escaped. Following that will be my next project, the graveyard. I imagine I’ll finish that up this weekend and have a full ride-through video to post next week. For now, here are two shots of the mansion exterior during the day and at night. I really enjoy the purple lighting and the gargoyles.
That’s all for now! If you liked what you read/saw, poke around the website a bit, leave some comments, and subscribe! Thanks for reading, and see you next time.
