I fancied starting a Matt N style of thread! While watching some of the amazing rides people have come up with in Planet Coaster I was thinking 'wow I wish there was a real ride like that'. In most cases the ride type exists and has existed for 10+ years but looking at RCDB they are mostly simple standard models or clones of the original. Which got me thinking, there's some untapped potential in some of these ride systems. Here's a few that I noticed: Mack Water Coaster and Supersplash There's so many interesting tricks that can be done with a Coaster Boat Ride hybrid. Journey to Atlantis (Sea World Orlando) was Macks first and does a really good job of showing off the ride system. But every ride that's come after it has stuck to a very basic layout: - 1 curved drop (finishing with a block break on small models or a splash down on larger ones) - 1 big straight drop with an airtime hill - a watersplash and a standard boat section (2 on the larger models). There are a few with lift sections as well but only really as a way to save space. The Supersplash model is even more generic with almost all of them being a clone. I'd love to see some more interesting uses of the ride. For example an indoor roller coaster (the car design isn't too dissimilar to Disneylands Space Mountain) with a surprise splash down, boat ride finale. Or a layout like a bobsled (the track already resembles one) that starts high up and slow but keeps building up speed. Mack Suspended Power Coaster Another Mack ride and I can see why this is underused as it has to be a fairly expensive ride system. But there's so much untapped potential. Of the 3 that exist I've been a little underwhelmed by all of them. Arthur is a good ride but I found the 'powered' element to be underused. As soon as the ride speeds up it slows down again. Dragon Gliders looks quite good but is restricted to being inside and so doesn't have much room for Coaster sections either. Universal Beijing's Jurrasic Flyers got me really hyped, especially seeing the huge mountain they've built the ride into. But early reports (I don't think it's actually opened yet) suggest it's just a high capacity version of the Pteranodon Flyers ride at IOA. No dark ride section just a medium speed suspended Coaster. I hope not because if so what a waste of a ride system! Flying Theatres (any manufacturers) Simply put there are too many 'site seeing' types of Flying Theatre. I'd love to see more Flight of Passage and Sky Lions that actually try to tell a story. Why not a Flying Theatre equivalent of Star Tours? Those are the ones on the top of my head right now. I'm sure there's more. What ride system do you think are underused?
