Since the old thread named this was closed. I figure time to start a new one. Does anybody know the species of wood Lagoon is using as they rebuild the new sections of the ride?

If anybody who is at the park and is bored if I could get some pictures of the interior bracing on the supports that would be great so I can make my recreation as accurate as possible.

It looks like regular pressure treated lumber to me which is usually pine pumped full of chemicals.
Stuck at home...bored and annoyed.

Cool. I've got some of that laying around. I'll do some color blending and figure out a color. The picture below is the area I'm looking for images of the supports, so I can make this as accurate as possible.

Custom Supports are beginning to take shape. This requires a powerful machine to do. The wood color I have derived from a picture of the wood color of the ride. My program can take a sample image and recreate the color. Its not perfect but its getting there.


So, I have been thinking, though I would never condone it in real life, I will give Roller Coaster the RMC treatment as soon as I'm done with the full recreation just for fun. So what name would give it and what RMC elements do you think I should include?

Along with Custom Supports, the safety fencing is going in too.

Great work!! That looks awesome! Personally on RMC Roller Coaster, a wave turn would be cool! Maybe a stall on an airtime hill, or a turnaround like Twisted Cyclone for the first turn around? I’m excited to see what you come up with!
