Blade Runner 4D Experience (Dark Ride)

Enjoy this incredible ride experience that follows the story of the original Blade Runner movie.

To run the ride, click on the ride track (just to the center left of the opening scene). Then click on the test mode tab, stop the test, and restart, and then click the camera icon.

To see the queue area, click the track and the click the pointer icon in the upper-right of the ride dialog box which will put you way above the ride. Then, click on "Park Management" on the lower-left of the screen, and click the green circle to open the park. Immediately after go to the 3rd icon on the far lef of the Park Management tab ("ticket prices") and limit the number of visitors to 500. There is a bug in Planet Coaster where it does not save this setting and about 4,000 visitors will flood the park!

If you are confused about the story, join the crowd. This is one of the best, but most confusing movies ever made. They even added voice-overs of the original theatrical release at the last minute so people could more easily understand it (but I've kept that out). I suggest looking the movie up on Wikipedia if you want some backstory.

I saved the park with a default sound track that is ok, but I created a mash up soundtrack from various bits and pieces of the movie that I used in my YouTube video. You can download that here:

To save the file go to Documents> Frontier Developments> Planet Coaster> User Music.

Next, open up Planet Coaster. First click settings (upper right icon that looks like gear), and go to audio settings, and change sound effect volume to only 10%, and overall volume to 100% (custom soundtracks are always too low compared to default ones). Now, click on the ride track and go to the customize tab (looks like a painter's pallet) and select the drop down under "MUSIC." With that open, select the folder icon for "User Music" and then you should see the file you downloaded. Select that. Then click on the test tab to stop the ride, and then restart it. Note that after a while, the custom sound track gets out of synch with the ride, so you need to reset test mode to ensure the music is at the right spot. When you do that, it will stay within about 3 seconds of the sweet spot, which is close enough.

I used numerous assets from other people. If you feel your asset was heavily used, please feel free to add a comment saying so. Thanks to all. I have also posted some of the blade runner specific assets (like the spinner vehicle) separately for easy usage.

Thanks - This is my old version of the ride. I redid it at the following link with vastly improved accuracy and visuals - Unfortunately, even on the very highest end computer, the frame rate drops as low as about 11 fps in some sections. It is something to do with CPU rather than GPU usage (as adjusting the graphics settings and resolution didn't help).

i would love to get this, sadly my computer can't run it but i have seen the video on youtube and it stunning to look at. It feels like an actual ride that could be built in a theme park for a big movie company like disney or universal! I highly recommend this if your pc is up to a high standard!

I love you. I'm just starting out on a fully Blade Runner/Cyberpunk themed park (since I'm a huge fan of the films) & saw your creation and oh man, it's so wonderfully good. It would overshadow anything else I make in the park though hahah.
