Nope. Not gonna touch this one with a 10 foot pole, either. ::)

I looked at the screenshots before watching the video and my favorite shot was the nighttime pic with the Sky Whirl off in the distance; looking like a couple of fireworks bursts. Then, while watching the video, you guys showcased that very shot by strategically placing the camera just so. Too bad the ride isn't functional. Nice park, entertaining video. :)

The Rose Lake Odd Fellows, a.k.a. the Rose Lake Really Odd Fellows, put on quite a shindig. The llama races sound interesting. I'm assuming the llamas are genuine Paraguayan llamas from Llama-Fresh Farms? (Monty Python again.)

I like the winding exit queue. It's sort of like a mini Great Wall of China.

Poor Mother Merkel, "...overtaken by ravenous Jackalopes." I can believe it; Jackalopes have "nasty, big, pointy teeth!" (Another Monty Python reference. You can see the clip here:

Quote: "Jeffrey Noble brought his brother for 'Show and Tell' one Friday."

Wow. The humor is suddenly getting a little on the dark side. :ohmy:  Despite the fact that I laughed out loud, I felt a little guilty about it. These types of photos were quite common in the late 1800s/early 1900s. A deceased child (or anyone else) in a coffin may have been the only photo taken of them; photography being still quite new then. This is the first one I've seen with brothers holding hands. Sweet, but very creepy. I can't help but wonder how it affected 'Jeffrey Noble's personality thereafter.

The "Good Sisters of Little Virtue".  Haha. I love that name. I also love how you worked in the names of all the movie killers/slashers; and how you included Cujo, name unchanged, amongst them. The photo of the smoking nuns is too funny.

EDIT- Sorry about embedding the video clip. I only meant to include the URL but I couldn't figure out how. :-\

Lots of good stuff here, guys. :)  I especially like the colorful triangular 'shaders' covering the Vortex queue; modernistic, abstract. Very theme parkish, world's fairish.

Quote: "...I think I promised JB a picture of Little Edna's Big Pie Hole."

Please don't. No really, DON'T!... Ah crap, too late... Nice to see that Little Edna is looking as robust as ever, standing on the porch of her 'restaurant'. It looks awfully secluded; bet you had to call ahead and make a reservation.

Quote: "...getting down and dirty playing with hoses", "...He offered to show Pro. Marvel his collection of horns he had blown."

Nope. Not gonna go there. Not even with a 10 foot pole.

Quote: "...Marvel's signature hand on the hip was just to butch it up with a little attitude..."

Alas, it didn't work.

More really nice screenshots. :)  "The King's Emporium" sounds good to me; plus you already have the crown near the entrance. ;)

The station for Woodsaw is exactly what you would expect for a rustic sawmill; lots of big, thick, heavy, raw lumber. :up:

Quote: "Stand her up next to Little Edna in her Little Egypt costume and the moniker is a perfect fit!"

Yes but... stand the aforementioned battleship up next to Little Edna and it, too, would look petite.

Very nice adobe/stucco buildings. And I like all the bright warm colors. The flags radiating out over the tables looks great.

The sheet music and the wording thereon looks and sounds true to the era. If La Petite Fairy was any more 'petite' she would sink a battleship. Hmm. I foresee a tragedy in the near future; any time performing monkeys are involved, there's always a tragedy.

I love the colorful Southwest/South-of-the-Border buildings and foliage.

In the old maintenance yard pic, I like how the pavement is scuffed up, dirty, and well-worn in places.

Ah. That explains why I never heard of it; there's only about a gazillion types of antelopes (including the Jackalope ;)). And it's like they have a different name for ALL OF THEM! :P

I love this 'old world' architecture. Very nice. :)

I don't know what a Nyala is, but the habitat looks wonderful. :)

I like the broad, open entrance to Adventure Café with the waterfall/fountain inside. And the interior-- Wow! I love themed restaurants that look like they are outside when they are actually inside (or vice versa). But where are all the guests? A magnificent restaurant like this should be full of guests! :)

Hmm. "Alabama O'Keefe". Any relation to Georgia? Perhaps they were next-door neighbors.

I'm (sorta) willing to accept Washington Bruin's unusual appearance as a glandular problem; but Geoffrey? C'mon. (Did you photoshop that pic with Geoffrey clinging to his mom? Hilarious!)

Knowing Tete de Tareau's modus operandi, as soon as I read "take care of them for me" I laughed out loud, imagining the outcome. And then I saw the giraffe-upholstered chair and I laughed even harder. (Some of your best stuff, Wagi.)

I don't think I've ever played 'Hide the Sausage'; sounds interesting. And who is Daisy Lou? Have we seen her before? The charming child looks like she might have cannibalistic tendencies.

I enjoyed watching the construction of the launch area. :)  It was interesting to see your thought process on which objects to use, where to place them, and what angle to make them.

The developers did a nice job with this ride. I really like that last pic. It looks like the temple is actually flying. It's just the right angle, size, lighting, and position in the frame to make it the center of attention and showcase its beauty and excitement.

I was about to say the exact same thing as BH, including the winky face, but he beat me to it. :mad:up:  I want to hear more about Little Edna's Big Pie Hole... at least, I think I do... not sure. :-\

I'm astounded by all the detail I see everywhere! I love all the odd angles. You've created a complete, immersive world here, Zarroc. :up:

Thanks, wowman. :)  Actually, I've been sort of a bad boy since the 'new normal' virus situation. :-\  I've been going (walking) to the local grocery stores almost every day; trying to find this-and-that or picking up prescriptions for myself or my mom. I use the sanitary wipes on the carts before I touch them. And I wash my hands as soon as I get home. But still, I am concerned about getting COVID-19 or just the regular seasonal flu (which is much more likely, and almost as serious). In my condition, my lungs do have a tendency to get congested with fluid (I take a 'water pill' everyday to get rid of excess fluids). I also don't want my 89 year old mom to catch anything from me. So... taking precautions and hoping for the best. But hey, at least I'm getting my daily walking exercises.

Another splendid episode, guys. :)  I really like the interiors of the Nickelodeon, with its reddish glow, and the Rose Theater, with its actors onstage. The lighting is perfect in both of these structures. And all that unadorned wood in the Roller Skating Palace makes it look very realistic; I can almost taste the mood it sets. I enjoyed the roller coaster rides, and the ballpark fits right in with this era. But the bestest, laugh-out-loud part of the video were the upside-down wolves supplying the ears for the mounted Jackalope.

I should mention that I also like how each episode begins, with the small screen growing larger till it fills the whole frame. That's a nice touch. They did that at the beginning of Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines as well, (plus a couple of other movies).

Hmmm. Edna Mae's 'special' seems rather bold (and blue) for such an august publication as the Peepsburgh Gazette. 46 miles per hour?! That's insane! Nobody will ride that deathtrap.

I'm liking this ride already: the low-key, almost hidden entrance off the street; the ornate garden area at the start of the queue; and the twisty stairs leading up to the ride. With all those steps to climb, I think I would go on this ride early in the day before my feet gave out. ;)

Wow. :)  I hadn't seen this project before. It was posted just before I became a SGW member, and just before I finally went from a slowww dial-up connection to cable broadband. Because it took so long to load images, I didn't look at very many back then.

Anyway, I really like the look and idea of this park. Some of those early images remind me of Snow White & 7 Dwarfs woods and cottage, very fairytale-y. With all the dinosaurs available now, you could do the original dino cruise as it appears on the map. Although the dragon idea seems like it would fit better with the enchanted theme of the park (as Wagi said on the previous page). I'll be following the progress of this park. (Hope you haven't bitten off more than you can chew.)

This looks like the type of flyer one would see slapped to a telegraph pole, or maybe even one of them new-fangled 'teleophone' poles. I see the Grand Cocotier has installed the latest in modern marvels. Who would have guessed that we could, one day, talk to someone all the way over in the next town! Wonders will never cease.

I dunno, 16 MPH sounds a little much for me. I might have to pass on the Grasshopper. Although, those 'padded rooms' sound mighty comfy, it might be worth getting a little nervous exhaustion. I like the fancy-schmancy Jackalope in the Peepsburgh Gazette masthead. And the text is once again filled with suggestiveness. I know, I know; I can hear you now: "JB, get your mind out of the gutter." I think my mind prefers to be in the gutter; it feels at home there.

The Grasshopper looks beautiful; with all the white(?) painted wood, lattice, gingerbread, and flowers everywhere. It rivals the Grand Cocotier for elegance.

Quote from JPAlmighT: "I'm getting a serious Kate Mulgrew/Janeway vibe from Nurse Harris.  She's a hottie."

It's that 'bun of steel' hairdo. Makes even red-blooded men swoon at the sight of it.
