September 2010 Hello again! The past couple of months have been full of activity. We'll start of by showing you what we saw on our way here. As you can see in pic 1 there's a truck bringing supports of some kind. We were eager to get into the park and see what was going on. While we were walking down the main street we encountered the park inspector who was too busy to answer any questions. As you can see in the second picture the park is still attracting a large crowd. We got to Destruction and guess what we saw. The park has got a construction crew which has brought track and supports! As you can see in pic 3 it looks like Valley View Park is getting it's first coaster! We still do not know what style it will be but we do know that it won't be a wooden one. We asked several park guests what they thought about the new coaster. Here are some of the replies we received. "When I saw the coaster construction I jumped with joy. I've been up to the theme parks in Gold Coast and they were awesome and it's good to know that New South Wales is receiving a good theme park." Another reply was "Oh boy! Valley View's getting a coaster! I can't wait to see what the park will present to us." As you can see the guests are eager to see what this will turn into. A you can see in pic 4 we walked past the new food stall and it looks like the vendor is still camera shy. We also found the new Lemonade stall which can be seen in pic 5. This vendor is one of the happiest vendors in the park and he loves cup stacking. His name is Walter Doogle. He make the best lemonade we've ever had. After a ride on Destruction we went to ride the Inversion Spinner. You can see that the queue is still large in pic 6. There have been rumors of a new name to be given to Inversion Spinner. We don't know if the rumors are true but we will definitely investigate the matter. Before leaving we rode on the rest of the rides. We hope that you enjoyed this update of Valley View Park. Stay tuned to see what the park's future will be.

Here's the first update of Valley View Park. Please see the first forum before seeing this one. June 2010 The park has undergone several changes during the last few months. First of all the main street has been redone with a brick paving as seen in pictures 1 and 2. Peeps seem to like this change as it gives the main street a more "main" feel to it. Blackbeard's voyage has continued to attract a lot of guests as seen in pic 3. The Castle surrounding it gives the peeps a ride to remember. Pic 4 shows the viewing tower which has started to be demolished as not many people have visited the tower. Mr. Fredrickson says that the park will replace the tower with another ride. As we can see in pic 5 Inversion Spinner continues to attract a large amount of peeps due to the intensity of the ride. It has become the most popular ride in the park. Python is also very popular although we can see in pic 6 that a new sign has been put up. It says to wait for the previous person to arrive at the bottom of the slide before you go down. This has been put up because of some accidents that have happened. In the next pic(7) we can see a new ride that has apparently replaced twister as it was not very popular. In pic 8 we can see a large amount of peeps going to the new ride. Pic 9 shows the entrance to the new ride DESTRUCTION. Pic 10 shows that it is a revolution ride that has replaced twister. The new ride attracts much more people than the previous ride. In pic 11 we can see that the park has been able to buy some new land. The barren field was bought but the owner has not revealed what he plans to use it for. This new property has elarged the park. In pic 12 we see that junior wheel has been practically deserted. It would not be a surprise to see this ride demolished. Pic 13 shows an overview of the park. The future of this park lies in the hands of Mr. Fredrickson.

November 2010 Hello Everybody! We decided to visit valley View Park a couple days ago and boy did we get a surprise. The amount of construction has rocketed sky high in the last two months. we'll start with some pics of the car park. As you can see in the 1st picture the park has begun to make space for an expanded car park as there wasn't much room in the old one. The new car park is just across the road. As you can see in pic 2 the old car park has been asphalted except for a few spaces. All these cars are owned by workers or management. As we got closer to the park we saw the closed sign as seen in pic 3. The reason of this was unknown but we we're determined to find out. Behind the entrance we can see a sign. In pic 4 we can see that it's a logo for the park. It's a scenic picture of trees with Valley View Park written in red. We we're allowed in and went to see the garden. It seems the janitors have to come to the park every now and then to water the plants as can be seen in pic 5. we decided to go see How the rides are going. We asked the man in pic 6 about the new name for Inversion Spinner and we received more information than was expected. Apparently Inversion Spinner will be given a new name, a new colour and it will be relocated.. What is going to replace it is still a mystery but we will do our best to find our. There will be nothing done to Dodgems which can be seen in pic 7. No work has been done on Python or Ferris Wheel as seen in pics 8 and 9 We ran into Mr. Fredrickson before going to see destruction. He stopped us from looking at the construction while we took a picture of Destruction. Pic 10. Mr Fredrickson then let us see what has happened at the construction site. We couldn't believe our eyes. We looked up and saw the start of an inverted coaster! Pic 11. Mr. Fredrickson told us that he was able to contact the popular B&M; company from Switzerland to build a coaster in Valley View park. This makes the coaster the first B&M; in Australia. In pic 12 we can see that there are some fences to stop people from falling out. The first drop looms over the path to Destruction. Pic 13.From the Queue line of Destruction we can see the station of the new coaster. Pic 14. We asked Mr. Frederickson what the name of the coaster will be but he kept that a secret. Form the top of the castle of Blackbeard's voyage we can see the whole coaster so far. As we can see in pic 15 the first hill has been built. It has not been confirmed if there will be any inversions but It will still be exciting nonetheless. In pic 16 we can see the crane working with the track pieces. Mr. Fredrickson said that the park will be closed during Summer break. He hopes the park can receive enough money after Summer Break to maintain the park. He is taking a major risk in this action and he is hoping that the new roller coaster will earn enough profit. Unfortunately we will not be able to talk about Valley View Park until the end of Summer Break. Goodbye everyone. Stay tuned.

I have seen many people on the Atari community forums make a park and tell a storyline of the park and it's owner. I decided I would start this one on Instructables. Remember that this storyline stuff is not my own idea but the park is and the actual storyline of this park is also original. I will be explaining each picture in depth.When I put a number in the text it means you should look at that picture. Fun fact: There are 47 pictures! :-O March 2010 It has been officially announced in the paper that a new theme park has opened on the Spring highway about forty kilometres Northwest of Central Coast, Australia. The funds from several schools and high schools around Central Coast had gone to Mr. Fredrickson to build some kind of entertainment on this small piece of land just after the Trail river bridge. He has apparently decided to build a theme park called Valley View Park. Part of the park can be seen from the bridge as seen in the following picture:1. The entrance can be seen in the following picture.2. It may only be the opening day but it seems people have found out about the inauguration day. People are already coming down the path that leads to the entrance as seen in picture 3. Photographers from local newspapers have been given permission to take pictures and write articles about the new park. Picture 4 shows a camera crew coming across the bridge. Mr Fredrickson has decided to give the camera crew a tour of the park. As the crew enters the park they can see several undercover food stalls as seen in picture 5. There are a few more stalls on the right and an entrance to a garden in picture 6. In picture 7 you can see the rest of the main street including information booths and a bathroom at the end. You must travel through a brick building to get to the garden and picture 8 shows the garden from the inside of the building. Once the crew explored the garden they continued the tour down the main street and found the entrance to main ride of the park which is called Blackbeard's Voyage as seen in pictures 9 and 10. It is surrounded by a castle and can't be seen until the crew enters the castle structure. Upon entering the crew finds out that the ride is a pirate ship ride surrounded by pirate animatronics as seen in picture 11. As they get closer to the entrance of the pirate ship, they get a much better picture of the ride. Picture 12. Mr Fredrickson gave the camera crew a picture of when it had finished being constructed. Picture 13 shows how there are several cannons pointing towards the ship when the ship is in motion. This gives the peeps an experience of being on a pirate ship. Luckily the cannons don't shoot cannonballs. Mr Fredrickson has no plans of relocating it or taking it out of the park as it is the most popular ride and the castle surrounding it brings lots of peeps to the ride. In picture 14 you can see the control booth where the operators are. As the crew exited the ride they saw treasure chest all over he place as seen in picture 15. The exit leads back to the main street so they kept walking and turned right at the entrance of Blackbeard's voyage and saw the top spinner ride called Inversion Spinner seen in pic 16. Before riding the Inversion Spinner Mr Fredrickson wanted to show the camera crew the viewing tower to the left seen in pic 17. Pics 18 and 19 show the flight of stairs and the viewing balcony. After coming out Mr Fredrickson directed the crew to a small garden with an oak tree in the middle. Pics 20 and 21 show the garden. Mr Fredrickson explained that the tree is an endangered oak so he decided to build the park around and keep it in good condition. Pic 22 shows the entrance to Inversion Spinner and pic 23 shows the ride. Pic 24 shows the control booth for this ride. Pics 25 to 27 show the entrance to the Viewing Canopy and pic 28 shows the viewing canopy. Pic 29 shows the bridge from the lookout. People come here to see the the valley and the Trail river which can be seen in pic 30. As the Camera crew exited the viewing canopy Mr Fredrickson took them to the next ride which is a spiral slide named Python. Pics 31 and 32. Pics 33 and 34 show the entrance to the next ride which is a twirler ride named Twister. Pic 35 shows the ride's control booth. Pics 36 and 37 show more of the ride. This ride is not as popular as the other rides so it would not be surprising if it was taken out at some stage. Pic 38 shows the exit of the ride. The park owner then takes the crew to the las ride which is a ferris wheel named Junior Wheel. Pics 39 and 40 show the entrance to the ride and pic 41 shows the ride. pic 42 shows the control booth. This is a popular ride for couples and small kids. Pic 43 shows the park view from the top of the Junior Wheel. After the crew left the ride they headed back to the main street shown in pic 44. Before they left the park they interviewed Mr Fredrickson about upcoming plans. Here is what the park owner had to say: "The staff and I are very happy about how popular our opening day was. We have already been able to determine the most popular rides although this may change in the future. If we get as much money as today for the next few months we'll be able to expand the park and add more rides. We have recieved many questions from guests asking if there is a roller coaster in the park. That may be a possibility in the future. We are now focusing on buying two pieces of land that belong to local farmers. Pic 45 shows both properties. The large property is very barren and the farmer would be happy to sell it at a good price. The second property will be harder to buy because it's owner has had a good harvesting year. If we can raise enough money to buy the properties then it will give us much more land to build on. Any other future plans will not be revealed today." The owner gave the crew a great tour of the park and they plan to publish it in the newspaper as soon as possible. The future looks bright for this new park. Pics 46 and 47 show the park from an aerial view. Be sure to check back every now and then for updates on the park. Any questions will be answered. Please subscribe and thanks for taking your time to read this. The updates won't have to be as long as this one.

Second Update! Sorry it took so long. I had a lot of stuff to do. August 2010 Hello Everyone! It's time to take another look at Valley View Park. The park has definitely received a generous income which has allowed the park to do many things. The park has been able to completely demolish the tower and they have replaced with a ride which wee will declare later on. An overview of the park can be seen in pic 1. As wee entered the park we headed straight to the gardens for a little rest after the drive. After we left we noticed that a part of the brick paving changed colour which can be seen in pic 2. We asked some of the staff and the park has apparently had some vandalism acts which the park has had to take care of. Mr. Fredrickson says that if it gets worse he'll call the police to find the vandals. Moving on we went straight to the new attraction. It is apparently a bumper car ride which can be seen in pic 3. The crew really liked the colours of the ride. In pic 4 we can see that they named it Dodgems. After a some fun crashes we went to catch a ride on Destruction. The ride has definitely maintained it's popularity and the manager is probably going to expand the queue line. The queue can be seen in pic 5. From the queue you can see a new food stall in pic 6. The vendor seems to be shy as he ducked under his counter as people went past. In pic 7 we can see that the area behind Destruction hasn't received a ride yet. However, The manager assures us that the ride will be built by March next year. Mr. Fredrickson has been receiving comments about some rocks that fell from the cliff in the car park which can be seen in pic 8. The manager has started to put aside money to fix this problem. In the last picture we can see the car park which is always crowded. The Manager will also be saving money to expand the car park. As we can see the future of this park seems to be in good hands. We are eager to find out what the new ride will be. The staff were talking about an announcement in a couple months that we managed to hear. We will talk about that in the next update. Stay tuned!

I'm kind of ticked off about a big problem I noticed. The main page in every contest has a big panel for the most viewed instructables posted in the contest. The problem with this is that because a lot of people only click on the instructables they see right in front of them. So all the other instructables no matter how good they are , if they don't have many views , get buried under the most viewed ibles and don't get any views. So the people who don't even need any more views get them piled on and the people with hardly any stay that way. Somebody please do something about this!

I'm just curious as to how people view cloning. Base your response around these questions. Should it be legal in the U.S.? (if you live in another countries please post about your laws) Is it natural? Should it be done at all? What are the pros and cons? Also please be respectful and open minded toward other peoples views.

It can pierce cardboard at fifteen feet away with one band and twenty to thirty feet away with two rubberbands (UNSHARPENED BULLET) I modified the barrel with a new barrel, that may look ugly but if you want i can take off the blue and red connectors that make the humps/ scales of what i call... Dragon Head Knex Gun DHKG well i didn't intend on putting those there but it turned out as a dragon and well, i went with it... the barrel doesn't bend and when or if i do post it, all credits go to Katarukito!

It seems wherever I go, I can never get good publicity, even if I post good work. Some of my 'ibles are well written, yet have less views and what-not compared to some really cheap 'ibles. On Youtube, my Spinafire account doesn't have many views on the videos, and I have put a lot of work into them. How are people like Kipkay and Kiteman, or Plasmana popular? Is there some big picture that I am not seeing?

I don't understand why I supported this web site in the first place. I think it was to see an indestructable that I was interested in but it wasn't their ("their" being the people who demand money ) indestructable. They (the people that take our money) don't post anything that interests me and they won't allow people to view other peoples projects unless we pay. I think it's a rip off that shouldn't be. These people are greedy and don't contribute anything except for a place to view this on the net. A lot of the projects here are crap and nobody here does anything to verify the projects. They started out with a free website and now it's a rip off....
