    Hello everyone. I am once again back with a new coaster! And a bit of a change up from Horizon, which was the Intamin double-launched coaster at Kings Island!

    This time I am working on a ride called Aviator, which will be a GCI Wooden coaster!

    A bit of background, I originally wanted to do a RMC coaster, but It was not really my thing, that first layout was abandoned.

    The second layout was designed for a PTC coaster, named Hirosaki, you may know the name already from a previous Invert I designed named Hirosaki. I realized recently that I had already named one Hirosaki, and so Aviator was the name!

    This design that is currently about to be shown is based off the Hirosaki layout! After realizing the PTC layout was not well thought out, I moved onto a GCI layout, and built the layout from scratch. This current layout is the only layout not on paper. But some how it managed to become the best of the 3!

    Now of course, this ride is not anywhere near completion. I'm still trying to work out support issues when it comes to the current set up right now. I'll explain one problem I've been having later that I want help with!

    The very first thing you will notice is the pre-drop. Which was based off of Son of Beast @ Kings Island, which is now demolished to make way for Banshee.

    After that, you head into the obvious drop, and meet an ejector-Air-Time hill! (So far the only real airtime hill in the layout, but I might be adding a few later)

    Next you meet the twistie part. Nothing much to explain, it's just a twistie part.

    This part was designed to be sort of a breather part, but it's still a very quick few seconds that you need to catch your breath before plummeting back down into speed.

    And finally, the last part of the layout currently completed is a Twistie hill! Mainly designed for quick turning purposes, but still a fun section!

    Now this is the part I need help with

    I am trying to get this to work as best as possible, and I have improved it from what it was yesterday, but It still needs a bit of work done to it. Any suggestions on this part?

    More updates to come!

    Don't forget all the little pops of air throughout every GCI coaster. To me you need those and the various other shaping details for your ride to be authentic. Good luck!
    Wow! this part looks wicked. Looks similar to my CCI Wooden Coaster Visonaire.

    Editor sneak peak

    Thought I'd just leave this here for now!

    Have a basic full layout done at this point! It's all about tinkering a few spots now!

    The layout and trackwork looks incredibly un-gci, but it looks good anyways.
    Where is the Out of Control Feeling? Looks Good but not like an GCI
    I have decided to release an Alpha version of this ride to get some reviews and possible changes to make later!

    It's no longer a GCI or any company, it's just a wooden coaster at this point (For your information)
    Here is Alpha of Aviator for testing purposes! feedback highly welcomed!
    Well. It's been some time since the release. Anyone have some suggestions for me to make? (I am literally open to working on the ride, unlike before with how I was with feedback. I am literally asking for it right now for changes.)

    I think you should try to run 8 trains. Maybe you can not get a train crash like I always do.

    Plus add custom bracing since that is very needed.
    @TriNationalism, the ride doesn't look very 'crafted' at the moment. It's too smooth and flowy really. It lacks the wooden coaster rattle, and it feels kinda half-assed at the moment. My suggestion is to (as mentioned before) add in lots of GCI ish quirks and bits in the track. Settle on a manufacturer and try to really convey that image.
    First part of two major layout improvements!

    Looks better already.

    I have to agree with Brawly, that portion of the layout looks great and seems to flow better. Also good to see that you're playing around with reasonable terrain elevation changes, should make for some interesting element opportunities.
