    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and the largest forum in our industry. Game owners can use our forum to their advatange by promoting/advertising their games to our users and receive feedback/reviews from those members that try their games out. We support developers of all kinds from RPG developers, sim game developers to virtual pet site developers. We want to see more games in our industry come across more success and that's why we try our best to release as many guides/articles regarding online gaming development as we can.
    We're unlike other forums in our industry because we try our best to be there for our users no matter what and give them advice whenever they ask for it. Running an online game isn't an easy task, but with our many resources that we've built since 2011, you'll learn a lot from our online community. Please don't ever be afraid to ask a question on the forums because if you never ask, then you'll never receive an answer to your question and you can only improve by asking other users for help/advice.
    We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are very frequent visitors on our online community. Along with artists, writers and programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our members who are artists sell art in our art marketplace and programmers are allowed to sell their scripts in the programming marketplace. We also allow game owners to sell their game in our general marketplace
    In early 2011, we decided to make a comeback to the internet because in 2010, we had a minor setback and we had to re-launch without any content, but with a lot of time, patience, hardwork and effort, we've managed to rebuild the Virtual pet list community into something better than it was before. We actually registered our domain name on November 4th, 2004, but we were only a directory then and all we had was a basic comments system for users to post things on their favorite games..
    So, what are you waiting for, why don't you join today? If you have any problems figuring out our security code, then here's a hint, it has millions upon users and has been around since 1997.
    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of different games listed, so we're pretty sure that you may find some games that suits your needs as a player of sim games or virtual pet sites.
    If you're still curious about a certain game that you'd like to play, then please check out some of our game reviews that were written by some of our great contributors and our interviews with respective virtual pet site owners, sim game owners, artists, writers and programmers that have worked in this industry.

    Well, I always wanted to see what the world is like, and what everyone has in their city/state, so why don't we share some fun places that our city or state offers?

    I'll start it off by saying we have two six Flags in Texas, one in Dallas, and one in San Antonio.


    This is the Batman: The ride

    This is the Roaring Rapids river ride
    [​IMG]

    Then another ride six Flags offers is the elevator, they call it the Superman of Power
    [​IMG]

    ^^This ride is very fun, I've always like it growing up, especially screaming to people at the bottom of the ride. XD!

    And we also have a place called "Splash Town", but I've never went. I haven't been to Six flags out here yet, either, but I might be going soon.

    So, do you have any fun places where you live? If yes, share some pictures, and links.

    In Holland you have a theme park called ''de Efteling'' it's more for kids than for grown-ups, but since I went so much as a kid I still love it :)
    It has a ''Sprookjesbos'' (Fairytaleforrest) with many old European stories, it's usually one or two statues or moving.. statuethingies and you hear a voice telling the story.
    So I guess it's not much fun if you don't speak Dutch..
    the park has some other attractions and rollercoasters but nothing massive

    The entire country of Holland also has 1 Six Flags. woooooow

    Another theme park is Duinrell which is mostly known for it's Tikibad which has the largest indoor waterslide paradise in the Benelux.

    Right now I can't really think of anything else that you should visit Holland for -.-

    --I tried to put in some links to pictures but I'm not allowed to do that yet :3

    @Toxic Rainbow Kisses I wouldn't want to go on any of those rides at the top of that tower thing, TOO scary! Has anyone ever died up there as well?

    Well seen as others have done theme parks, I will too.

    Ripon has the Lightwater Valley Theme Park.

    We have another theme park in NY which is near Malton which is Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo - best known for its Pink Flamingos.

    But anyway Lightwater Valley.

    The best known coaster is the Ultimate, which became the worlds longest rollercoaster from 1991 to 1999. Its now Europe's longest rollercoaster.

    [​IMG]

    ^ The two drops in the track.

    Rat Ride was the first ride but thats been re-done as Raptor Attack, which I haven't been on yet.

    But my fav ride is Twister:

    [​IMG]

    And there was 1 death in the park in 2001, and she died on Twister.

    Well our city has nothing. Literally. We used to have a club but it got shut down x-X We don't even have a good downtown to walk around in or anything

    Michigan in general doesn't have much, either. Most of us go to Cedar Point or King's Island for fun, but those are in Ohio. We have Michigan's Adventure (another theme park), but I've never been there so I don't know what it's like =P


    That
    Looks
    TERRIFYING ;-;

    I'd ride that roller coaster all day long! I love drops! I won't go on up-side down roller coaster though. Those make me sick.

    Its a good ride yeah, I can't actually ride THAT ride anymore. But when I was on it anyway I couldn't see anything anyway so not exactly missing much.

    Which again, is why I like TWISTER so much more!

    For those that posted rides from theme parks, how often do you go to them?
