November 2023 - River Rapids Contest 3!

November 2023 - River Rapids Contest 3!

Hey everyone!

It's been several years since we last did a contest where we had to build a River Rapids ride! I think it's time to revisit this contest, as these rides are really fun, but also pretty technical to build in a nice way! I have made several tutorials for this ride type, so be sure to check those out! You can also find river rapids in several of my released parks, including Deurklink Megapark, Mount Deurklink and Class Action Megapark!



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 make a river rapids ride! You can use the normal river rapids track, but I recommend making the track invisible and using larger turns! You must use the river rapids boats from RCT2 or one of its expansions!
  • Rule 2: You must hide a Cool Dude object somewhere on your map. Make sure it is (at least) partly visible from at least 1 angle!
  • Rule 3: The deadline for this contest will be on the 27th of November 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 2400 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 60 tiles, or 48 x 48 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 Manticore, for the save file name, use Manticore.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!
