Monkey Island Fans, help me out here.

I have a side project I'm doing in RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 where I made a Monkey Island scenario through their Scenario editor. It started out as a silly idea around Monkey Rehab (don't ask), but as I started doing the finishing touches on the scenario, I got to thinking about making a finished park full of Monkey Island game refferances.

Thing is, I've never played it. Please don't hate me.

I did do research, so I'm familar with a few of the characters and gags, but I'm not as familar as someone who has played the game. So, yeah, I need your help. What kind of refferances should I have in my completed park as part of the scenario package to show that you can beat the scenario?*

Here's what I plan to do so far:

[LIST]
[*]One rollercoaster titled Le Chuck's Revenge to fill in the token "revenge" coaster most theme parks have.
[*]A triple-racer coaster titled, you guessed, Three-Headed Monkey!
[*]Renaming Root Beer to Grog for all drink stalls. Same goes for the Inflatable Swords at the Pirate Toy stands, which will be called Insult Swords. If the Joke Stand sells Rubber Chickens, they'll get renamed as well to Rubber Chickens with a Pully in the Middle.
[*]A Pirates-esque log flume ride down a voodoo swamp.
[*]Stan's name appearing on various services like first aid stations and maybe a restroom for good measure.
[/LIST]

* = including a finished scenario that you complete yourself is just a way to show that the objectives are not impossible. It's an honor thing.

  • For not having played the games, you already seem to have a good understanding of them! Good plans so far... I will try to think up some ideas, but I have none for now... just wanted to let you know I think your current plans are great.

  • Why don't you play them? You're missing out!

  • 1) Needs more Big Whoop

    2) "That's the second biggest [noun (e.g. Monkey Head)] I've ever seen!"

    Also, Root Beer was a pretty major feature in the first game...

    The games are so old, I'm afraid to buy them used off of amazon and such. Bad experiance with used games no working and then being unable to return them or sell them off to a GameStop-like store. I wish I could find at least the first three in a GameStop-like store, but my area of the US is more fond of shooters than they are of pirate adventure games.

    1. What is Big Whoop? That's still a mystery to me even with all the looking around I've done.

    2. I could just rename all the "Large" items (large drinks, 1lb. hamburgers, large fries, large bag of candy, etc.) to "Second Largest [whatever] ever sold."

    Well, it's not exactly clear what Big Whoop is... in the first game, it's a legendary treasure, as in the second, but then during that game it turns out to be an amusement park of sorts, something which comes back in the third game. You might find some more information on things from the amusement park that you could use, in this article.

  • Yeah, I found screen shots of that area, and will have a "land" called that. But I'm not recreating the Rollercoaster of Death. The Three-Headed Monkey coaster already would cause whiplash to my riders if constructed in real life.:D

  • Zeek, you NEED to include Madly-Rotating Buccaneer and Monkey Mountain.

  • Madly-Rotating Buccaneer sounds like a good name for a ride. I just got to figure out which one.

    Monkey Mountain can't be recreated as much as I would like to have a giant stone head of a monkey in the theme park. My version of RCT3 doesn't like custom scenery. :(

    I also just discovered The Brimstone Beach Club. Why didn't anyone tell me about this before?! I now have a reason to build a pool and a large tanning deck in my park! :D

    Aw. In that case, you should at least name a huge ride "The Second Biggest Monkey Head" to honor it. And put little tiki statues around it, if possible.

    Oh, and you should also throw in a SCUMM Bar and a Planet Threepwood restaurant.
