I like the pink and aqua colors of The Plaza; sorta 1950's Florida style, except for the mountains and fir trees in the background. ;)

Hmm. I was going to say- B: Where it is stored, like the livery stables in old westerns where they kept horses. But maybe an aircraft's livery is where things are stored in the craft itself. So, D: Its storage compartment.

That 2nd pic definitely has an Egypt feel to it. Actually, it's just as you said, sort of a combo of Egyptian and other African motifs. Nice. :)

Looks a little better now, Darknight. The track doesn't disappear anymore. Ditto, some of the path covers. And I'm seeing more detail in some of the walls as well. :)

I can see several nods to Disney parks in your entrance: the clock tower, the elevated train track with pedestrian tunnels beneath, and attraction posters inside the tunnels. Your colorful planters look very nice, and I'd like to see more of the Eurofighter queue and station. :)

L is for Luigi's Flying Tires at Disney California Adventure. (extinct)

I really like the floating planters. Little, unexpected bursts of beautiful color.

I know that Harrison Ford had bit parts in movies dating back to the early-to-mid 1960s. And Sean Connery was in movies in the mid 1950s (like Darby O'Gill). Both were quite young in those roles, about the same age. So I'm guessing they are B: 12 Years apart.

There are some enticing views of Revenge of the Mummy here; looking forward to seeing that ride. I notice that some of the track is disappearing in the long shots (and the textures are kinda plain looking); have you tried moving the Draw Distance and Detail sliders up? It would make for even better screenshots. :)

Neat concept for a ride, iEddiez; dividing it up into two show buildings: fire & water, heat & cold, red & blue... (I'll stop now). I like how the track goes briefly outside as the cars leave the station, and the gods of fire and water straddling the track as we enter the building. Excellent use of the spinning coaster to keep us disoriented and guessing as to what comes next. I was going to say that I missed your cleverly funny narration, but this isn't the type of ride that needs it-  fast paced, and it tells its own story. Nicely done. :)

I is for the Indiana Jones Adventure attraction at Disneyland.

I enjoyed the walk-thru, wowman. Very informative and interesting. I was going to say that I liked the queue for Serengeti Swing but then I saw all the other queues and realized that I like them all. :)  So many beautiful and exciting vista points here, especially the view from the bridge that you showed us. Looks like there won't be any Serengeti lions, but I like what I see so far.

NoNoNoNo! Make as many 'mistakes' as you want! Me being a little obsessive/compulsive, spotting stuff like that is what I live for. :P

Hmm. I just noticed that I made a mistake in my post that you quoted: in the last line, there shouldn't have been an apostrophe in "it's". >:(

And to stay on topic- I like how you added the "Train to Egypt" and "To Harambe and Port of Call" pointing to areas off-map. It helps orient us to the lay of the land.

Well dang. Sounds like a 'perfect storm' for Louisiana, unfortunately; getting tons of rain where Nature can't deal with it for now. Take care of yourself, BH. And take care of those in your area. And we'll be expecting to hear from you and the Kerbals on down the road a ways. :)

I like the map, wowman. :)  And it's going to be a hot collector's item one of these days, because the numbers under the Attractions title have differently angled drop shadows (I notice these things; it's a curse). And the registration is completely off on the numeral "1". :P  I'm keeping my copy of the map in a protective plastic sleeve till the price skyrockets, then I'm selling it for big bucks!

Looking forward to Serengeti with it's lions and tigers and bears... well, lions anyway.

Because the Stay Puft marshmallow man will grow to gigantic size and trample the whole neighborhood flat, obviously. ;)

I like that overhead view of the coaster- 4 layers of track stacked on top of each other! And, is that eagle balloon always on top of the Flying Eagles ride? This is the first time I've seen it there, yet it's such a natural place for it. (Sorry, I don't have the game, so sometimes I ask questions with obvious answers.)

I have the generic Montgolfiere ride, planetthrilldude57. But I can't upload it to the CS Depot because it's one of Advanced Rides creations, and they don't want their stuff available anywhere else. shyguy might have it and send it to you if you ask him nicely.

I found It! (Buccaneer). I just uploaded it to the CS Depot. It should be approved shortly. :)

It looked awfully familiar so I looked in my RCT3 archives under: Jonnyears, ImagineerJohn, and Buccaneer, with no luck. Then I looked inside the NetOn and Europa Park add-ons- still nothing. Finally I did a Search throughout my RCT3 archives for "Buccaneer", and voila! Found it as "RR-Buccaneer".

I don't have the game so I'm not sure how you did those appearing/disappearing effects. In-game? Or edited afterwards? I like how you gave movement to the giant mechanical robot using flame throwers, hydraulics, and turning gears; sorta brought it to life. :)

F is for fireflies. The imagineered kind. Seen at Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean, the Blue Bayou, and elsewhere.

Hmm. Obviously, cow and goat's milk is used by humans. I'm almost certain that reindeer's milk is used. So, it's between camels and elephants... my gut tells me that camel's milk is used, so I'll say E: Elephants.

I'm sitting here cracking myself up. :)
Well, at least somebody is. :P

Let's do it again!

A is for America The Beautiful. Disney's 360o theater.

It was fun hearing about the parks you built when you were 8 or 9. They may have been basic and simple looking but I bet at the time, you were still proud of your accomplishment.

Ha. You panned over just in time to see the Friendship Boats colliding.

Why would somebody go to the trouble of making a monorail CTR and only have 2 passengers per car? WHY?!... crazy. Well, I suppose they didn't want to make all the peep sitting points. But still...

I must have missed it but, what is (or will be) in the big yellow dome? Or is it only for show?

I couldn't resist- I copied/pasted that TOT pic into Paint Shop Pro and lightened it, added contrast, etc. just to get a good look at it. :P

Thanks Darknight. You chimed in just as I was finishing my response to cody. :)  I'm sure it's more difficult to make a close re-creation of an existing ride than to simply throw something together with the resources one has on-hand; which is what I do. I don't have to worry if it matches the real-world ride, or not. In most cases, the game engine has too many limitations, and exact custom content isn't always available to make an exact re-creation anyway. So I don't. ;D

That cliff with the waterfall in the Apatosaur/Stegosaur diorama is from MGP's Yosemite set. I use that set a lot in this ride.

Thank you, cody. :)  That last pic in the story, with the Apatosaur peeking around the corner at us, is one of my favorites. He's even smiling at us; well, they always seem to be smiling. When I'm taking screenshots for updates, I take lots of them, sometimes over a hundred; in sequence if I'm riding the ride. Then I pick the ones that best suit my needs. I'm reluctant to throw out the rest, so I've got tons of screenshots taking up space on my hard drive. :n00b:

I love that façade! It has all the classical Greek motifs but it looks bright and colorful, like we're seeing it when it was newly built. It seems to be inspired by the Journey To Atlantis ride façade (only better :)). All the screenshots are very nice but my favorites are the 2nd and last pics.

Thanks shyguy. I've started working on the next update for Lost Imaginarium; shouldn't take too long. I'll keep alternating updates between the two Imaginarium threads.

Quote: "Can you guess what kind of coaster will be added for 1989?!"

If it weren't for the fact that you already had (and removed) a double corkscrew coaster, I would say that. (Like the one that used to be at Knott's Berry Farm). Maybe you're bringing it back?

In the next to last pic, it looks like that peep has a pumpkin for a head. :P  I'll just assume it's an orange-haired lady. But still...

The new Revenge of the Mummy signage adds to the spectacle and grandeur of the entrance. :)
