May 2024 - Virginia Reel Contest!

May 2024 - Virginia Reel Contest!

Hey everyone!

The Virginia Reel is based on an old coaster type where guests sit in a car which freely spins around its axis as it navigates a track! I personally often forget it exists when I build a park, but they can be great fun to build! Now is your time to show me what you can do with one of these rides!


You are allowed to team up with one other person in this round! It doesn't matter if you teamed up with the same person in the previous round!

  • Rule 1: You have to build a Virginia Reel coaster on the map! Your Virginia Reel must mainly use the Virginia Reel Track, but you are allowed to splice in sections of other track.
  • Rule 2: Your Virginia Reel must use Virginia Reel tubs as its vehicles.
  • Rule 3: The deadline for this contest will be on the 27th of May at 19:00 CEST!
  • Rule 4: For this contest, you are only allowed to use objects from the RCT1 and RCT2 base game and their official expansions, OpenRCT2-official objects, and custom objects that are included in the DKSO v1 bench. Custom objects that are not in the DKSO v1 bench are not allowed, so make sure you don't use those. You are also allowed to use a custom palette if you want.
  • Rule 5: The maximum map size for this round is 1600 tiles. This number will be calculated by multiplying the size of the map edges. You could for example make a map that is 40 x 40 tiles, or 50 x 32 tiles. 
  • Rule 6: There is no limit to the amount of opened rides you can have in the park. 
  • Rule 7: Have fun!

How to join

  • Step 1: Join my Discord server. Discord is completely free!
  • Step 2: Build your map and decorate it!
  • Step 3: When you are done with your contest entry, go on Discord, and send the save file to me in a Private Message. For the name of the save file, I want you to simply use the name that you use on Discord. For example, if your discord name is WidgetKitty, for the save file name, use WidgetKitty.park. After you have sent the save file to me, I will look if it follows the rules, and I will check for anything you can still improve. You can resubmit your entry until the deadline of the round, even if I have already accepted it. Please deselect all unused custom objects before sending in the save file!
  • Step 4: Submit a story for others to read in the voting poll! You can do this by writing your story in a Private Message to Deurklink on Discord!

After the deadline has passed, I will put up a voting poll with all the entries. In this voting poll, everyone who is a member on my Discord, including you, will be able to rate all the other entries, and leave a short review.

When the voting period is over I will announce the results in a Youtube video!

Good luck, and have fun!
