    This is my first post in Gaming. I've been playing Roller Coaster Tyrcoon 3 and been trying to recreate Dorney Park as it was seen in my childhood. Dorney Park is a local amusment park in Allentown, PA. I uploaded to youtube taking a ride on Thunderhawk as it was seen then. It didn't even have a name then it was simply known as the The Coaster, the Dorney Coaster or the Yellow Roller Coaster:

    Nicely done. I have fond memories of this game, although I confess I was never really good at designing coasters from scratch.

    LOL that was fun, I was yelping and leaning to the side going around the corners!

    The game is very good at making you feel you are really riding the rides. I've been working on other coasters that I have been on.

    Well done :)

    It's amazing how watching a simulation of riding a rollercoaster on your computer can actually give you that sensation that you are riding a rollercoaster.
