New Element has always been about RollerCoaster Tycoon, RollerCoaster Tycoon has always been about roller coasters, and JDP is all about roller coasters. Most of us have been criticized by this Nazi of coaster realism, whether it be an improper inversion or a “cookie-cutter” B&M layout. But despite all of his nagging, he has earned his place among the long list of accolade winners with two Silver wins: Superior Amusement Park and Korsareian Valley. He also helped push the Hurricanes to victory in Head-2-Head 5. Now he graces the front-page once again with his latest Silver, Hutchinson Amusement Park! Read On...
There once was a time at NE when JDP was a complete asshole, but now he has turned into one of the more respected members of the community, always offering great advice, especially when it comes to his strength of realism, something that was showcased heavily in his previous Silver winner, Superior Amusement Park.Nowadays not many people can say they have built 3 parks, let alone have each one win an acolade, but JDP is someone who can, as we award him his 3rd Silver and give you his latest creation, Hutchinson Amusement Park.When you are going to open a 'JDP' park, you know that it's going to be one of the most realistic parks that you've seen and Hutchinson Amusement Park is no exception. Opening onto it's quaint entrance area you catch a glimpse of how JDP works. Using facades, he provides a simplistic look and design, but it works, and he has created something that is highly effective.Straight through the entrance gate you come out into a small square which features the perfectly placed Hutchinson Family Carousel, fantastically framed by silver birch trees and a small water-feature, this just shows how much thought JDP puts into his work. Moving round to the left, he puts in a theme park necessity that is often left out in other creations, a first aid center as well as several midway shops and attractions.One of the special features of this park is a coaster type only ever seen once at NE, a Zierer Tower Launch Coaster. High Anxiety is a great adition to the park and contains the park's only inversion. Combine that with the coaster's launch and Top Hat element and you get HAP's most thrilling coaster.However JDP takes his coaster layout strengths to the next level by building 3 wooden rollercoasters, each based upon or 'built by' a different manufacturer. Wooden coasters are clearly JDP's forte as these three are not only visually stunning but are realistic masterpieces. Overall this Hutchinson Amusement Park is a definate improvement on his previous two winners, Korsareian Valley & Superior Amusement Park and is a must view.Congratulations on your 3rd silver and your first acolade of 2009. So far you have recieved one each year so we look forward to seeing what you bring to the table in 2010. Well done JDP.
