Heading down the main path, you first come upon a Speed Bike Jr. Coaster. Not that intense of a ride and more for the whole family.



More of the main pathway, with offshoot paths, places to eat and queue lines for the coasters



Ground level view of this same area

So many details and such a nice, highly tangled arrangement of all the stuff.  I know this is your sneaky marketing plan, so that folks get lost and can't ever leave ;).


BTW, I love that facade over the shops.  It looks like both a gun turret and Darth Vader's hat.

Are of this land where there are many bridges and cross-overs of tracks and walkways.



Smaller entrance to this land from the Dagobah area.



The Ewok Village queue path area is very popular.

Enjoying these updates, End or is turning out great!

Very nice stuff, here Wowman!  And again, you've captured a lot of the look of the wilderness, this time the big woods.  Looks very much like some places in the CA mountains, except for the wysteria vines ;)

Feels more like an experience than it does a park, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing! Looks cool. :)

THX guys...these last two lands were quite involved with all the trees. Working on Naboo now and much more work on buildings, but I think its coming along well.

I love this!  The wooden planks covering the paths is a nice touch.

Indeed.


I hope there are some music speakers tucked away in this area playing tribal drumming tracks ;)

Looking good, Disney should be coming to you for some ideas!

Have you done any more with that underwater Gungan city?  It's my favorite so far, but this is all good.

Re: Star Wars Land - Welcome to the Moon of Endor

yep - working on Naboo right now...mostly the above ground stuff, but will be doing the underwater ride soon. I have played with billboards a bit on it for better effects. I covered the entire water surface (from above) with a reef type photo to make the water look better, but I also covered the underside of the water with a water surface type photo to make it look more even, but more so to block all the moonlight and a shadows from above so that the lighting appears more even. Almost has the effect of an interior ride now, so not sure if I'm keeping it this way as it looses the 'feel' of being under water...more to come later.

that particular one was a download from the workshop. I did all the ones with wood rails.

Here is a more detailed look at the Speed Bike Flyers Jr. This is a less intense family type roller coaster that zips through the forest and canyons of this land.
Here is the inside of the station. Wanted it to have the feel of being like a speeder bike garage/hanger.



This is actually the end of the ride when the cars make their way back into the station.



Another angle of the station



At one point in the ride a trigger sets off an exploding AT-ST that has already been taken down by the Ewoks

Here is the far side turn as it dips in a ravine  and water explodes up along side of you.





more twists and turns



...and the second lift hill



here is where the coaster set off a trigger and the At-ST fires a laser that just misses

Overhead view of this coaster. Sorry about the bad frame rate. I'll figure this out some point in my lifetime.
