I just realised that Cooper's Roost has a train track! I think apart from ships, travelling in a train across the different towns of cool ranch would be cool. 750 coins per ticket. It takes roughly 30-45 seconds to reach the nearest stop. And the train can have a band, and a diner, with Bison Decorations

It is a huge world in need of transportation, uniqueness, and luxury.

Lol I like how you think. Too bad a bad accident stopped all train travel there but it sure would be fun.

Maybe they could make a dungeon out of this, exploring each room of the train until you get to the locomotive. Or, if not, it would be a great place to hang out.

This is true. Anything and I mean ANYthing is possible when Blind Mew picks up his quill.

Great idea Golden Guardian- yet, again.

I would absolutely enjoy traveling through Cool Ranch in a train checking out the scenery. It would be a nice change of pace and a chance to see things from a different view without having to dodge all those pesky Skyway critters and ships. My crew would be willing to pay the gold for sure.

Your idea gave me an idea...how about traveling the Spiral by Hot Air Balloon. You could board an area at the docks or other locations and be whisked off to your next world. I know it probably couldn't be done in the realm of the gaming mechanics, but could you imagine getting a nice bird's eye view of Skull Island, Mooshu, Aquila and the other worlds. I just know the screenshots would be magnificently breathtaking. I would sure like to see the beauty of the Spiral from above.

Again, great idea and the band is an excellent touch!

Yeah, the Zephyr had a really bad accident in Arroyo Grande! I noticed the debris on the Canyon Floor! The idea is good but accidents prevent it.
Better to be safe than sorry!

Great Idea! It's like in Mb in Wizard101. It would be hard for the developers to make, but that would be fun! I would enjoy looking at Skull Island and Cool Ranch from above. Breathtaking.....

I 100% agree, I really enjoy going through the storm gates and seeing the other worlds fly/float by but I can only imagine how the worlds would look as you pass over them- getting a Skarakeets-eye-view! A thing of beauty for sure!

When I saw the tracks of Cool Ranch, I was hoping for an Indiana Jones style mine car chase through tunnels. At least I got to roll a mine car.

Ooh, now that I would so go for...throw in a huge boulder escape scene and I would sit back with some popcorn and practice my whip crackin'- Indy and El Toro style. Gotta love those Professor Jones flicks.

If you end up doing any of the side quests in Marleybone, and there were a few on the Zephyr in Cool Ranch, "M" wants you will find out what caused the wreck of the Zephyr and who was behind it all. Very interesting and a definite side quest if you are looking for one.

i can imagine el toro run away from the famous boulder (probably the most known of all traps in indiana jones). who knows? maybe there could be companion minigames one day and the boulder would be exclusive to el toro

I could so go for that George! I think adding some interactive, companion and crew, based minigames would score big with the P101 following- especially if they were optional, so those who wanted a change of pace could get it and those who didn't care for things of that nature could bypass them. I would be of the change of pace variety and I also would rather enjoy some optional puzzle solving/strategy type elements adding in the future. You know pressure plates, moving objects, deciphering codes and such (kind of along the lines of the LEGO video games).

But you're right, El Toro would so fit the Indy running from the boulder scene...although his overstretched smile might change the dramatic effect and intensity of the moment.

I'll just add a quick response to this thread, pretty much I love this idea along with a lot of other people who responded.Considering how big Cool ranch is, this could help with the travel time through skyways.

Or jet pack you can fly onto armada ships and point the flames toward them and wachem melt And doge cannon balls easier. Cannon balls would break the hot air ballon

I love this Idea, but it conflicts with the plot. there is a side quest we get in MB that sounds like it will be relevant in the main quest line, where we try to discover what happened to the railway industry. To make an unnecessary long story short, most of the tracks and trains were destroyed in an explosion that will help us discover the armada's weakness. You could say that the tracks were repaired, but that would make that quest, and a few others irrelevant, when they provide great back story and insight to the spiral's industrial side, and what the armada does when they're not at war. You could also say that we're riding unsafe, broken tracks, but I doubt that any railway worker would allow that. Besides, if you look up on arroyo grande, you can see huge chunks of track shattered or missing! that's not a train I'd wanna get on.
