Default Round 3 - Mayhem with Motorbikes

Sorry everyone for letting the contest slip! Ethan and I have been quite busy with other stuff the past couple of months. So, without further ado, here's this round's information...
-------------------------------------

A well-developed amusement park has just signed a contract with Vekoma to build a huge new Motorbike coaster. Instead of a racing theme, they'd like it to have a twist. Whether that be tropical, Wild West, or Sci-Fi, they want a cool, unique theme.

The goal of this round is to theme the coaster realistically. Once again, the key word is realistic.

You may not modify the paths that are given to you. This is the current park path layout, and they don't have the money to reroute it. You are allowed to style it, but you cannot remove them. You can add on paths all you want to however.

The park also needs restrooms and a fast food style eatery. Both the brake run and launch area should be accessible by catwalks.

REMEMBER: You are allowed to change the colors, but you CANNOT modify anything else on the ride.

Summary:
  • You must choose a name.
  • It must be realistic.
  • You must build restrooms and a fast food style eatery.
  • Both the brake run and launch area should be accessible by catwalks.
  • Only track and car colors can be modified. No track adjustments are allowed.

I would really like to participate or at least try to theme it but when I try to download the file all I get is a window that opens with a bunch of gibberish. Am I the only one who has this problem?

EDIT: Nevermind, Safari was acting weird I guess. It works with Firefox.

For future reference safari always attempts to unpack files it downloads (.dat) so use firefox always.

This looks like a nice comp, unfortunately I can't enter because I've got too much going on

Read the rules... It clearly states that...

Rides and other attractions can not be added unless specifically stated in a round's requirements.
Why can't people read for themselves anymore?

You create your own theme. Keep in mind that you must build it realistically, so no floating objects or anything like that.

It sounds like we'll have a good amount of entries this round. If we get enough, we may split the voting into tiers like the Screenshot Contest to give everyone a fair chance.

Eh, I don't think I'll be able to participate. I'm pretty busy with other things (Summer Showdown, Life and the like).

I think I'll be a spectator this time around.
