Red: This is a converted post from the news section, therefore a new date.
Finally after 15 months of (interrupted) development and beta testing, we have released the Grizzly River Run Simulation, our first Disneyland attraction, and we are proud to offer you a new challenge!
May 2007, already a while ago, I visited Disneyland, CA, and got impressed by the ride. At Disneyland Paris, we are still waiting for this kind of attraction, but in France we have a totally different climate, so it's hard to imagine a Grizzly River Run ride over here.
At March 2014 I already had a framework ready for this simulation, but it took me a long time to advance with the project. As I want to raise the bar for myself, it had to be as the real attraction, at least as much as possible. With the help of the beta team and other interested users, we were able to create a new experience. During the BETA phase, the sim was tested more than 3000 times, to get bugs and other annoying issues. So March 22nd 2015 the sim was finally released, and already played 1400 times.
At this moment we are working on a new build, which will be contain some new features:
- First Drop blocking: when the first drop failed or is not active, boats will stop and wait for a fix/activation.
- Second Drop blocking: when the second drop failed or is not active, boats will stop and wait for a fix/activation.
- Loading platform blocking: when the loading platform failed or is not active, boats will stop and wait for a fix/activation.
So the Grizzly River Run Simulation can be played at Themagical and I hope you enjoy our latest addition!
