Highland Lakes was the first
Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 park for Fox Amusements.
Look at how great Highland Lakes is! Just kidding, that is how it
looked when it was originally completed. Check out more pictures of the original
There is a story to the park. Highland Lakes is in Northern California
and started out as a military camp. The land was purchased by an
entrepreneur name Robert who decided to use the land as a camp ground. To
help promote his new venture Robert, or Bob also purchased a few carnival rides
and decided to call his park Bob's Big Fun Park.
Here is the park as it looked at the time. Notice the wooden coaster
way back there... we will get back to that. The brick structures were part
of the military camp and some are still there today.
Here is the park more recently. We changed one or two things over the
We are very proud of the Blue Bunny Creamery Ice Cream Parlor.
The park has a new boardwalk.
Notice the wooden coaster. That is not the same one that is in the
photo of Bob's Big Fun Park. The original woody was moved years ago to
make room for two other attractions. We removed the original coaster and
stored it carefully for some time before reconstructing it on the pier at
SufCity USA. This coaster was designed and built for the new boardwalk at
Highland lakes, it is smaller than the one at SurfCity USA.

We are extremely proud of our Carbon Creek 1880s town. This is the
first themed area we ever attempted. Rotten Luck Willie's Saloon and this
street is new to the town but much of the Carbon Creek area is just as it was
when we first built it with the same rides that have been here since it opened.
You can see Carbon Creek Slough, and Carbon Creek Mine Blast on the mountain
in the background. The concession building to the left was original to the
area as well.
Along with the new street at Carbon Creek is a new attraction...
