This feels very much in line with Tivoli or De Efteling and I love it. I critize everyone for this but be careful with coasters and track shaping. The park looks wonderful but it the rides dont support that then it falls apart a little. Nonetheless, Im in love with the architecture and ideas. The scandinavian area is beautifully crafted. Its about time someone makes a lighthouse in this game!

The fairytale area oozes with charm. The warm lighting works really well. Excited to see more of it... and I'm hopeful the roller coaster in the background has the same realistic charm.

Welcome to the Magic Village!

Many weeks have past since i start my new theme area.
Merrion Towers is a family park, so i want to create a kids area.
I want to make two sections like the Scandinavian part.
So there is the Magic Village and the Magic Forrest.


Here are the pictures of the village.

In the entrance section of the area there is a big magic fountain.
Its a little bit twee, but it must be in a fantasy area. Behind there is a big building with a drawbridge.


The whole Village in its full splendor.

 


At the right sight you can go shopping or you enjoy a coffee on the terrace.
The terrace on the backside in the magic forest.



The entrance of "Grimms Wonder" get an special building. I want to create a different look, so its like some kind of town hall. I want that the visitors know that there is something special.
At night the building get a special look from the light.

On the left side there is the attraction oldtimer. The Station is a wind mill.
The queue get through a barn and then back on the street of the village.


One of my favorite is the design of the flowers, the oldtimer way get nothing special.
But there is the Globe Theater and much flower power.
 
The last picture is the area by night.
 
And i pack the whole new area in a new video.
Enjoy it!

The Magic Village is so charming. i think it's your best land yet. Too bad the flowers around the Oldtimer cars all turn white when you move the camera away. I thought they were rocks. I hope Frontier fixes this.

That village is beautiful and the construction of the square... square surrounded by detailed structures is very European (I'm getting Plopsaland vibes). And of course, that car ride is something special. The gardens are so well designed.

The roller coaster was very fun too. I always love a good Snow White themed ride.  :)

Welcome to the magic forest!

It´s time for the next part of the new fairytale area. 
The pattern for the magic forest was the theme park “Efteling” in the Netherlands.
In my opinion they have one of the best fairytale forests of the world.

 
 We start with the first fairytale “Hansel and Gretel”


 The first attraction in the forest is the chair-o-plane. It was a coincidence that im place that on this place. But i think it’s was a good idea to make it more attractive for the visitors to walk through this area. The entrance should look a little bit elf-like.

 
The next one is “Mother Holle”. At the window there is a little snow effect.
And at the gate there is a gold effect.
 
In the forest there are not only trees, I make some gardening there.


The biggest fairytale is definitely the sleeping beauty castle. There are only shops at the courtyard.
Maby in the future i can place there a new attraction!?


The Tower of Rapunzel, close to the tower there are a lot of shopping stores.


The main attraction is snow white.
The station is close to a little pond, it’s a bit big for a drafts house, but the station is so big.
I want to create a dreamy place with the little pond and the stone bridge.
 
 
 The queue have 3 parts, one is the mine part, than the cellar and at least the garden part.

 
What will the future look like of Merrion Towers?
I want to make a little makeover of the English part, with a “new attraction”.
After that i want to start a new big project. In the video there is a hidden teaser for the new attraction.  :P
Be prepared for some new stuff.

Thanks for all the comments. It‘s almost a motivation to go ahead with the project!  :)

Woah! This is gorgeous! How large is the park? Are you getting a ton of lag in frame rate? It's beautifully detailed. I especially love the chairs and tables at the Foxy Coffee shop patio. How did you make them? They are so detailed but not out of scale.
I think like I live like I work like I love.....voluminous and disjointed. Get used to it.

The magic forest looks superb, espacially the third picture from the 23th of march update is wonderful. Lovely area you´ve created here. The britain area is not bad as well although I like Magic Forest more for now. The front of the new area is detailed and nice but a little bit too "flat", perhaps one or two buildings could stand more forward: you can move the tea building more forward (I don´t know how too express, I hope you know what I mean :D )

This is an awesome park!  You have a great sense of style and I'm very impressed with the architecture and gardening.  Could you please post the link to your workshop page so I can find a few of these wonderful things?

Thank you so much for your good advice. Your right its a bit too "flat", so i move the buildings on the right and left side. It looks much better now.  :yes:

Yes, great, it´s really now, like it! Now I´m interested in the stores, is there any restaurant? Is it possible to buy tea in that tea house? Then you could place a table with chairs in front of the building so that the guests are able to drink their tea there. Perhaps right between the tea building and the very left building you could place it.

No, its the entrance of a new attraction, guess what?!  :D :P
The first building is only the stock of the tea house, there are another building.
