Finished all of Roller Coaster Tycoon's original scenarios and looking
for a new challenge? Below you'll find my first custom scenario
for RCT3, a little place I like to call...
A small town in the south-western U.S. is desperate to attract more
tourists. If only they can win the VIP endorsement of Cami O, it will put
their amusement park on the map. The screen legend enjoys thrilling rides,
but is suffering from a weak stomach due to recent treatments at the rehab centre.
Can you help the townsfolk build exciting coasters that won't cause Cami O
to 'refund' what she eats at the concession stands?
If you decide to try the scenario, you'll find Queasy Canyon
is a moderately large park with plenty of space to arrange rides, but also
some interesting scenery to wind your custom coasters around. Here are some
screenshots to show what you've got to work with.
The Sante Fe train ride starts from town and circles the park,
providing a peaceful way to enjoy the western style scenery.
The cliff faces and water of the canyon provide interesting opportunities for
the imaginative coaster designer.

One coaster, the 'Canyon Carver', is supplied with the scenario.
Another shot of the 'Canyon Carver'. It has the high excitment level and
low nausea needed to satisfy Cami O, but she'll want to ride a
second coaster - your coaster!
A night shot of one of the ranches outside town. The Sante Fe looks
like a ghost train in this lighting, but it's just because of the
Empty land outside of town, just waiting for your touch to
bring it to life.
An overall view of the scenario's park.
The main challenge of Queasy Canyon is to create coasters with an excitment
rating of more than 6.8, but a nausea rating under 2. The 'Canyon Carver'
supplied with the scenario shows it can be done, but you may find hitting
those targets will take some experimentation and re-building while creating
your own coasters.
