My Holiday Inn was praised for the build but criticised for placement. Am I permitted to demolish it and rebuild elsewhere as part of this challenge if I so wish?
Yes, that would be okay.


Challenge #5

The people have really begun to warm up to having a theme park in their town. Tourism is growing and the money is rolling in. But now, the few spots to stay overnight in town are being overbooked and the town is asking that you create facilities to house the growing amount of tourists.

~If you haven't yet, you need to purchase the final plot of land.
~Build facilities for overnight guests. You can build a large hotel, a smaller motel, or camp grounds. It's completely up to you.
~If you already have a hotel on the property, then you don't need to add any more overnight facilities. Instead, create a classic Midway with rides/games of chance/vendors etc.
~If you're buying the third plot of land in this challenge, than you must build one of the above options on that land. If you've already bought all three plots during the last challenges, you can build anywhere, just as long as your park is utilizing all three plots by the end of this challenge.

The deadline for this Challenge is Sat. August 25th. Maximum number of screenshots is 8.

Post any questions here. Good luck to all the entrants.

Play RCT1 or RCT2 or Parkitect. ;)

^But that takes you off the site to your hosting site. If you use the image tags correctly, you get this...

That is me. And you all thought I was a guy. :P

Haven't been following the PP transformation too closely, was disappointed they were going away from the original concept.  Nice to see this ride sticking around as well as some semblance of a vintage theme.
Honestly, the Pixar Pier transformation made only minor changes to the whole look of the land. Although I haven't thoroughly explored the new land, I'd have to say they've made some nice improvements without ruining the original atmosphere.

I don't know how I missed this, but I'm loving it so far. Too bad I can't get the 3D pictures to work. I can't wait to see more.

I love that submarine ride. I don't think I've seen that CTR before. I'd love to host it at the CS Depot (hint hint).

That was a nice little fireworks show. It's always nice to see members post these shows. I've never even attempted to do one myself.

The park also looks very pretty at night.

Golden Zephyr

The Golden Zephyr is located in Paradise Gardens Park at DCA. This retro attraction gives guests the chance to soar high in the sky in a gleaming silver spaceship inspired by the science fiction stories of the 1920s.

This type of attraction, known as the Circle Swing, was a standard fixture of many popular boardwalk parks of the 1920s through the 1940s. The ride represents a past vision of the future reminiscent of the old serial films like Buck Rogers.

At about 90 seconds, the ride is short but sweet, and gives riders a great view of Paradise Gardens and Pixar Pier.

Originally part of the Paradise Pier land, the refurbishment of the area split the land  in two. So now the land that is home to the Golden Zephyr is Paradise Gardens Park, which resulted in the removal of the Paradise Pier lettering across the top of the ride. It now simply reads "Paradise".

Each vehicle is fit with quadruple stabilizer fins, gold and chrome trim, running lights and underbelly strobes. In the background, you can see the Disney's Grand Californian Hotel.

Nighttime is a great time to ride, especially when it's so colorfully lit.

First Europa Park. Now Forest Family Amusement Park. Oh the humanity! :'(

Why are your last pics so small?

Disneyland Resort / Downtown Disney Restaurants (La Brea Bakery)

La Brea Bakery

At the La Brea Bakery you can watch the chefs prepare freshly baked breads, pastries, focaccia, flatbreads, and pastas. The bakery also includes a sit-down restaurant that serves brunch and dinner, featuring an extensive menu of mouthwatering entrees.

The La Brea Bakery is located at the east side of Downtown Disney, right outside the entrance gates to both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, making it a very convenient place to dine outside the parks.

The window displays only a small sampling of the large assortment of baked goods you'll find inside.

This open kitchen affords guests a great view of the tasty treats being prepared.

Fresh baked bread cools on the counter.

One of the chefs prepares some focaccia in the state-of-the-art oven.

Southern California Attractions / San Diego Zoo - Reptile House
« on: August 14, 2018, 12:17 PM »
Reptile House

One of the most popular destinations at the San Diego Zoo is its Reptile House, located in the Discovery Outpost area.

A reptile house has existed at the zoo since 1922, which operated out of the International Harvester Building left over from the 1915 Panama Exposition in Balboa Park. Then, in 1936, a new, much larger, reptile house was constructed, which exists to this day.

Guests have always been fascinated with snakes and reptiles, and the zoo's collection is one of the largest in the world.

Banded Rock Rattlesnake, from southwestern United States to northern central Mexico.

Banded Water Cobra, from central and western Africa.

Blue Tree Monitor, from New Guinea.

West African Green Mamba, from the rain forests of western Africa.

Western Diamondback Rattlesnake, from southwest and northern Mexico.

Woma, from Australia.

To the left of the Reptile House is the largest living species of lizard.

Housed in a separate enclosure is the Komodo Dragon.

The Komodo Dragon can grow up to a maximum of 10 feet and weigh over 150 lbs.

The Komodo Dragon can be found on the Indonesian islands of Komodo, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang, and Padar.

Kingswell Camera Shop

The Kingswell Camera Shop is where guests can pick up their Disney Photopass pictures. The shop also sells memory cards, cameras, film, batteries, frames and photo albums.

The service counter. The camera shop is named after Kingswell Ave., the street where Walt and Roy Disney's first office was located.

Ornate chandeliers hang from the high, vaulted ceiling.

A pair of penny souvenir machines sit in the corner.

This photo of Los Angeles, circa 1920's represents the era when Walt Disney first arrived in town.

A display case featuring Monsters University merchandise.

Various antique paraphernalia adorn the walls, like these antique cameras.

Picture frames and photo albums on display.

Price list of PhotoPass options. I do wonder, in this age of rampant selfie fanaticism, if the PhotoPass program will one day become a thing of the past.

Correct me if I'm wrong judges, but last place still guarantees six points.  So Neitsab, plop a tree into the park and take a picture of it.  Those six points could make a significant difference in the end.
That's correct. You're guaranteed a minimum of 6 pts if you enter.

Dippin' Dots Sundae Shop

Towards the back of the park, behind the Manta, is the Dippin' Dots Sundae Shop.

The menu consists of a vareity of Dippin' Dots treats, as well as assorted soft drinks, bottled water, coffee, and juice.

This SeaWorld exclusive proves that Shamu is alive and well.

I suppose the conveniently located automated external defibrillator (AED) is in case guests OD on the Dippin' Dots treats. :P

Candy Parlour

The Candy Parlour offers a huge selection to satisfy anyone with a sweet tooth.

The shop is stocked full of old-fashioned candies, boxed chocolates, taffy, suckers, and sugar-free treats.

And did I mention jelly beans?

Pucker Powder, brought to you by Snoopy.

Barrels of taffy.

I'm not familiar with Kennywood, but this looks great so far. I especially like the lakefront area where the flume is.

It's nice to see you back with a new park. So far, it looks like a very nice beginning. It's got that small town theme park feel to it.

This looks like a nice, unique project so far. And as for Workshop items, there's no specific protocol on how to acknowledge when you're using them. Some members might only use one or two items in their park, and in that case, they should list which item is from the Workshop, and the author's name, if they know it. If you're using multiple items, then a blanket statement saying your park contains multiple Workshop items is enough. You don't need to list each and every item nor do you need to list all the authors' names.

Or you can simply do what people did before the Time Machine. Just show screenshots of the interior at night.

Congo River Fishing Village

The Congo River Fishing Village is an authentic recreation of an African fishing spot.

Sitting above the Mombasa Lagoon, the fishing village provides a scenic element to the area.

Conical, hand-woven traps catch fish swimming down the falls. These are authentic replicas of traps used by fishermen on the Congo River in Africa.

Above the falls.

You can get a great view of the Mombasa Lagoon from this lookout tower.

Horseless Carriage

Another way to ride up and down Main Street is via the Horseless Carriage.

Making its debut at Disneyland on May 12, 1956, was the red Horseless Carriage.

On Dec. 6, 1956, the yellow Horseless Carriage made its first appearance.

Today, both carriages are still in operation, taking guests back and forth between Town Square and the Plaza.

These vehicles, like all the Main Street vehicles, greatly add to the charm of the land, and help transport guests on a trip back in time.

Did you ride Pirates of the Caribbean? Because "ours" blows "yours" out of the water. But I agree, WDW Splash Mountain is the best.
