Willowpond Park has been a labor of love of mine that I've fallen in and out of working on over the last three years. I certainly didn't use all that time to build it, as this really took only around ~65 hours to complete. I have to thank YourCoasterNews on Reddit for giving me the inspiration to finally finish this project, having commented on a progress photo asking how the project was going almost 2.5 years after it's been posted. Really owe it to them.
This park followed up on the feedback I'd received for my Historic Adventures Resort project - trying to incorporate a much more realistic park layout, ride spacing, pathways, foliage, backstage areas, etc., so I went for a smaller-scale park to try it out. One thing to comment on is that I did not attempt to figure out curving pathways. That may be something for the future, but it already took three years to motivate me to finish this, and including diagonals was already a step up from where I was.
Willowpond Park was inspired from the few small parks that made a name for themselves building multiple CCI wooden coasters during the 90's/00's (Silverwood, Holiday World, Indiana Beach, etc.), following the trend of a mid-sized coaster then complimented by a larger one. I'd also wanted to try my hand at a G.I.B., as I've seen one done in the manner I did here before (though I haven't been able to find that park, kudos to whoever did it!), and the Skyrocket II & Spinner 380/4 came naturally as other off-the-shelf models that could fit in a park like this. I'm particularly happy with the RMC, which turned out with fantastic pacing and a layout I really enjoy.
Willowpond is a storyline park opening in 1997 with eleven attractions, all of which remain in the park excluding an Antique Car ride that was removed in 2008 to make way for Derecho. Eight expansions have been added starting in 2001 with the latest in 2022. This upload starts you in 2023.
Thank you to everyone who has provided the massive amount of custom content that has contributed to OpenRCT2 and this park, as well as the many parks that have served as inspiration. Hope you all enjoy!
