Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 came out in 2004, and was received with mixed reviews. Four years later, hobbyists of the game continue to take it to a whole other level. You may have already seen links to the creative ways to devastate
in RCT3. A whole other group of fans, however, have gone on to create highly detailed parks and ride recreations. They use customized textures and mods to create massive architectural works
that require hundreds--sometimes over thousands--of hours of work.
Apologies in advance for the long intros and ride lines for some of these videos. (Yes, even the lines you stand in is a big part of Rollercoaster re-creation for many hobbyists.)

A glowing tribute
to several creations, rousing music included.
Still no word on a complete Disneyland
however--the universal wisdom is that no one makes it past recreating Main Street.
