    Dark ride revolving tunnel

    Can someone create a revolving tunnel for the ghost train or other dark ride like they have in the ghost train at Blackpool which is supposed to make you feel live you are turning upside down as you travel through it. Thanks to anybody that can oblige.

    I actually have this and some other carnival dark ride stuff on my to-do list. Do you have a particular style in mind? Example photo? It'd be a relatively simple build, so I can maybe bump it to sooner on my list.

    Oh I love this idea! Maybe a few different versions. Colorable stripes or spirals... Stones - like a cave wall or in a temple. Maybe moving stars? Maybe something spooky like swirling ghosts or skeletons or spiders...

    The one on Duel at Alton Towers would be great. Here's a photo Name:  tromel.jpg

    Ooh, that's interesting, with the brickwork. I'll see what I can come up with this weekend!

    I do like the idea of doing a few other designs, too. Swirling ghosts would be fun!

    I don't have a photo as I do not think any exist, but it would be a tunnel that surrounds the track in black with some sort of spiral pattern or spots or check on the inside to show the tunnel spinning as the car goes through it. That is all I can really say to explain this.

    I get what you're going for, it sounds very much like what I was thinking about making anyhow.

    Here's one I made with billboards...



    So a colorable one like that would be neat

    Hi
    How did you make billboards rotate ????
    Thanks

    Oh the billboards didn't rotate...I created a movie of stripes moving upwards and then I arranged the billboards in an octagon to make the tunnel. It's just an illusion.

    Love that, the billboards really worked well to get the effect!

    I was thinking to start with two of them, one with straight stripes like that, and one with diagonal stripes, both colorable. But I definitely want to make some with cool patterns, like polka dots or the ghosts and stars mentioned above! The brickwork one will be a nice test of some of the material features, too. I THINK I can even make it look like it's being lit with blacklight! Emissives are fun.

    I'm hoping to finish the fishies I'm working on today, and then get started on these tomorrow.

    Your fish looks amazing so far! I can't wait for those! Well...except I can't play in my big park until they fix the framerate bug. But I plan to put them in as soon as I can. ha ha

    All right, got some tunnels for you! See this post over in Completed Items. And I did some balloons for fun, too! I'll probably still do a couple more tunnel designs. They're quite fun, and I definitely want to do a starfield and try my hand at a rock tunnel or those bricks.

    I hope the framerate gets a fix soon too! Glad you like my fish - the animation with multiple moving animals is proving to be a little tricky, but I'm getting there. And thanks for the comments on the tunnels over on the workshop, you're quick!
