    I have decided to start a contest, called Reach For The Skies!

    The contest goes like this:
    Make a launched coaster that is over 500 feet tall, and has an extended layout (Example: Kingda Ka and Top Thrill Dragster aren't extended because they are short time wise) and has to be at least more than 1 minute long, but not over 2:45 seconds.
    Judges: BetaCoasters, DerMuffinMaker, and the NLE community
    It must pass a clearance test, G-force test, and quality and realism test.

    NOTE: Once entry is done, please whisper to me (BetaCoasters) and DerMuffinMaker containing a private link to download your ride, a link to the pov (If you made one), and pictures that we can showcase on the results.

    The deadline will be 1 week and 2 days after all slots are filled up. UPDATE: COASTERGUY246 Won!
    There is no box to build in, as it should just pass these requirements:
    -Scenery is recommended, but not required
    -No custom scenery (nSeven's Trees, TCM's Rock pack, etc.)
    -No longer than 2:45 minutes
    -Must be a Rocket Coaster
    -Trains have to have 5 cars, and at least 3-4 trains.
    -Launch has to be able to make the train get over 500 feet
    -1 or 2 inversions, an extended layout
    -G-Force must be all clear
    -Must pass clearance test.
    -Custom Supporting is recommended
    -(If you can) Upload a pov to YouTube


    -COASTERGUY246 -Finished, Won for best and only ride submitted! Pov of his entry!

    NOTE: Did you know this actually turned into Bizarro?

    Good luck!
    -BetaCoasters & DerMuffinMaker

    really nice idea , if there wouldnt be that much competitions going on i would join.
    and i would suggest to wait until all the other competitons are finished.(so more people could join)
    i dont want to say anything bad about your competiton ! just my opinion and why i will not join
    i think 2 contests is enough... also, what happened to asking mods before posting competitions....

    ^ I whispered to a mod regarding making a contest 3 hours ago
    • CommentTimeOct 2nd 2015

    -No custom scenery.

    No custom scenery as in nSeven's trees and stuff like that
    just the default scenery items.

    -Theming would be recommended but is not required.

    pls don't recommend themeing if we can't make themeing to theme the ride with.
    ^ Done.

    thx <3
    No problem <3
    I'll join
    Also, why does it need to be exactly 2:45 seconds? We can't make it shorter or longer than that?

    Posted By: BetaCoastershas to be at least 2:45 minutes

    Ok, seems fine.

    Posted By: BetaCoasters-No longer than 2:45 minutes

    It doesn't have to be exactly 2:45 seconds, it just cant be more than that, and it has to be longer than regular strata+ coasters like Kingda Ka because who doesn't like longer rides? So I'll change it to no less than 1 minute long to make it understandable.

    I'll be joining if I can, this seems like a fun and original idea

    I'll join if that is the case!
    Sure Why not. I'll join
    Im in
    • CommentTimeOct 2nd 2015
    I could be in
    Just because you were late by 30 seconds, I'll put in a spot for you cheetah
    Alright, all slots are taken, the contest shall now start!
    The deadline is in 1 week, and 4 days (October 15)

    Let the games begin!

    If you have any questions or comments, feel free to whisper to me.

    just saying, 6 cars seems a bit unrealistic when most current intamin stratas have 5 cars

    DAmn :( Are you sure you can't make another place for me? It sounds like a fun contest.
    Oops! I said 6 cars? sorry!
    And TheDarkStar, I'l see as the contest already started.
    • CommentTimeOct 3rd 2015
    is 4 cars ok
    ^ Sorry, no. it isn't supposed to be compact so there is no need for a shorter train
    so just to clarify - 5 cars is allowed (since thats the realistic amount)
    ^ Yeah, I changed it.

    Can you make the launch rule make the train go up to 1,600 feet? That would be more like reaching for the sky.
    ^ It's a metaphor since there is no names for roller coasters over 500 feet.
    "Polar Coaster" basically.
    • CommentTimeOct 3rd 2015
    ^^I personally go with Tera-Coaster or maybe Peta-Coaster (think Mega-byte, Giga-byte, Tera-byte, Peta-byte, etc)

    ^ I always understood that "Poler-Coaster" was just the model name for the Orlando coaster, not the actual term for a 500-599 ft coaster.
    Yeah I would go with Tera, but people often mistake it for Terra as in terrain coaster.
    ^ Actually the reverse happened when I called my family terrain coaster a Terra Coaster. People can be weird.
    • CommentTimeOct 3rd 2015
    my coaster is 1600 ft tall

    • CommentTimeOct 4th 2015
    Can we use Intamin Mega for lap bar trains?
    Rocket coaster only like the rules said
    So can I join or not?
    Yes you can, I'll add you to the roster
    wooo! Thank you :D
    what date is the deadline?

    I know it was originally only seven contestants... would you be willing to add a ninth? I have a ride for the Theme A Thing contest but doesn't seem like anyone wants to help me theme it... it would work well for this contest though.

    EDIT: Just kidding.. I read the rules wrong so my ride doesn't work for this :/
    I'm gonna have to drop out of this contest. Have way too much non-coaster related stuff to do, and about zero inspiration for this coaster. COASTERGUY246, if you want to defer my slot to Ajax, that's fine by me. :/
