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.

  • Maybe a Pirates of the Caribbean*-ride?
    Mostly because Ronny.G got some of the inspiration for the game, in there.

    Also, it would be great if the log in the flume-ride looked like coffins, but I guess it would be a little bit weird of them to put that into the game...

    * Not to be confused with the movies.

    That's my VooDoo River ride which features a backwards fall into Hell thanks to the VooDoo Lady.

    I too would hav eliked it if they had coffin log flume boats, but they don't. They do have crocs as an option for boats, which made me giggle.

  • Well, I finished the SCUMM Bar based on the image from the game of the exterior and what wall pieces I had in the game. Unfortunately, the game classifies the building as part of the Western Theme, but that's just the game mechanics for you.

    Thought I'd share as a thank you for everyone who posted in this thread helping me out.

  • Presenting, LeChuck's Revenge. The anchor ride in The Carnival of the Damned.

    Nice!

    Can you post the ride stats. It looks a bit high on intensity.

  • Um, I thought Monkey Mountain was the anchor ride for Big Whoop.

    The game is glitch, or it has something to do with my Cheats Custom Family having the Half Friction cheat on. Without it, the coaster doesn't even complete the circut.

    When it does, the ratings are as follows:

    Excitement - 8.84 (Very High)
    Intensity - 7.23 (High)
    Nausea - 3.56 (Medium)

    Maximum Speed - 75mph
    Maximum G-Force - 5Gs (thankfully it is only for a fraction of a second, or else I would have killed a lot of my riders in real life)

    Total 'Air' Time - 19 seconds
    Total Inversions - 6

    I'm not recreating the park from the game. I'm making a theme park based on information I've found on the game.

    Right now, I'm working on the International House of Mojo.

    Expect it to have a lot of downtime due to crashes.

  • I tend to play Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2 once a year or so. I've played them on all sorts of computers with Vista and XP and win98 and what have you and it always works flawlessly with the SCUMMVM.

    Also, if you are worried about getting stuck the web is full of walkthroughs and then there are forums. You haven't really lived before you've been disappointed by the legendary lost treasure of Monkey Island. Oh, and for your amusement park a recreation of Lechucks ship should be mandatory...

    SCUMMVM is a great program and all, but the issue is not "I can't play it," it's "I don't have the game." There's no way to get them at a good price, and they're not on HotU.*

    *Err... not that I would know.
