Universal Studios Florida 1998

Requires RCT3: Soaked! and RCT3: Wild! 8 screenshots 0 comments

Hello folks, this is a little something I'll be trying out. I will be making full, working recreations of Universal Studios Florida. Not only that but I'll be posting loads and LOADS of different versions of the park by year. This is how the park looked in the year 1998.

First things first, Universal has a lot of simulators, especially nowadays. For a working park and to ensure that there wasn't loads of identical simulator rides, I instead have underground roller coasters that make the same motions as the real rides. Pretty neat approach, huh? There are a couple of rides that are different two due to game limitations but I'll go through those below. First, here's a list of rides.

Rides Included:

The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera (Caution, it's an appalling recreation! There are holes in the ceiling, trains always get stuck whenever it breaks down and some other problems.)
Nickelodeon Studios
Alfred Hitchcock: The Art of Making Movies (Cinema)
The Boneyard
Twister...Ride It Out
Kongfrontation (Also very bad, exit's in the wrong location)
The Blues Brothers Show
Beetlejuice's Rock and Roll Graveyard Revue
Earthquake: The Big One (Only for show, couldn't get a proper ride working. The queue line is very badly recreated.)
JAWS!
The Wild Wild Wild West Stunt Show
Back To The Future: The Ride
Animal Actors Stage
E.T. Adventure
Fievel's Playland
A Day in the Park with Barney
Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster
Curious George Goes to Town
Horror Make-Up Show
T2-3D: Battle Across Time

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!! The main bulk of this park belongs to RollerCoaster Creations who set out to make the park without using any custom scenery. I kinda broke that rule I hate to say. I also made it a bit more of a working park for peeps. (Even though they complain that they're aren't enough rides. I didn't really go by any algorithms here.)

VERY IMPORTANT!! I made this park years ago, back then I barely knew how to play the game. As I upload, you'll see how much they gradually improved over time. But this park and most of the other ones from the 90's-Early 2000's are very rough around the edges, with lots of inaccuracies. As I write this, I'm currently up to mid-2008 and the improvements I've made really show, I feel. However, I would consider this park, 1998, to be the turning point. Judging by how well the new entrance and Kidzone turned out, this seems to be when I found my stride and started to make lots more improvements.

ALSO IMPORTANT! INACCURACIES

The Monsters Cafe is kind of floating, but I fixed it later on.
I didn't build Stage 54.
When I built Twister, I wasn't aware that there used to be a longer outdoor section of the queue until after I started building Rockit, so the queue already has it's post-Rockit look.
The exit to Kongfrontation is in the wrong location.
Amity is missing a few buildings.
Only one level of Back To The Future is included.
I accidentally put Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster in slightly too early. In reality, it didn't open until 1999.
E.T. Adventure doesn't fit in the soundstage so I added a section at the back. I hid it with trees later on though.
There are some tiny areas of path where peeps randomly spawn in that get them lost because this park doesn't have a proper entrance being a custom scenario.

IMPROVEMENTS FROM PREVIOUS PARK!

I was very pleased with how the new entrance looked when I built it and still am. I think it looks brilliant.
Woody Woodpecker's Kidzone is here and I am also a huge fan of how it looks.
As said above, this is where I feel everything started to improve. From here, the parks get better and better.

Hope you enjoy! Expect more soon.
