When it's a dark and stormy night, and you want to give your ghoulfriend a real thriller, why not take her for a spin on the ReaperCoaster!

Situated over the River Hades, the ReaperCoaster is the only way to cross since the ferryman got sacked for breaching 'elf and safety regulations. Actually he breached an elf, but lets just leave it at that.

Riding in a perfectly safe and reliable electric chair, well it's safe for dead people. She'll have the ride of her death as she goes around the rusty and busted up track and takes in some fun features. Including gravestones, riding over the busted bridge, through the old mineshaft with a mystery surprise. Past the scary looking, and most likely haunted, witches house. Before possibly shooting across a gap in the tracks.

This virtual representation includes many of the features found on the real one. Including a preset with everything but the electric chair loaded into place. Plus theres a separate electric chair and track.

To place the chair on the track just load it and dial it into place. Depending on the size of your figure, you may need to scale the chair slightly after loading the chair. It's roughly scaled to V3. Also included is a standalone witches house.

Techie Notes:

#1. This is the 1st time I've ever worked with Carrara's terrains and the results could be better.
But it's free so no whinging! :)

#2. To save RAM duplicate textures are used in various places on the model, especially on the witches house and track. However the model has been carefully mapped with lots of material zones, for those folks who like that kinda thing.

    Cheers, thanks.

    Looks like it could almost be a weird board game from the 60s/70s.

    Thanks everyone - hope you're all enjoying it.

    Actually now you've said that - yes it does. Though for once I didn't overtly intend to include any cultural or toy references - guess the subconscious retro-fan was sneaking out again!
