*Been away for a bit*

As anyone can see I’ve been away for a bit. So, I haven’t been able to update or add any new posts. Sorry about that, had a few things that needed some taking care of. And I couldn’t commit my time during this little portion. But, I’ll be back with a new post really soon. I’m a bit excited about this one. See you all soon <3

Electrobit City

Anyone who grew up in the 80′s or has any fond memories of playing Nintendo games will love Electrobit City.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Electrobit%20City/128/96/1729

Electrobit City_001At the entrance there is a giant exclamation point. If you click on it you will be taken on a small tutorial that will show you how to explore the areas, and gives you a better idea of what you can do.

Theres a few different areas. A lot is surrounded around Super Mario, you can actually run through the areas just like the video game.

Electrobit City1_001Theres also a cute little bunny friend that you can have attached to you. Theres an area you’ll see him hopping around near the entrance, click on the bunny and hit attach when it pops up on the screen. And now you have a friend who fallows you everywhere you go.

Electrobit City4_001

Theres even an area that is set up looking like a nightclub filled with a giant Nintendo controller, fun laser lights, and a few other add ons.

Electrobit City3club_001

There are so many different areas to explore, where a few of them may not be completely finnished. It looks as though the creators are adding new worlds just like the actual games them selves. Which I think will be very exciting..

Electrobit City2_001

The entrances are hidden in the trees, mushrooms, disc’s, and at the entrances a big door. But make sure to explore everywhere. I was in this area for a long time jumping around, grabbing coins, and finding something new around every turn.

Electrobit City5_001

I loved it, I hope you take the time to jump back into your childhood.

The Corn Field (SL’s Twilight Zone)

The Corn Field

The Corn Field

I ended up finding this location just by chance. Its such a strange mysterious place, this is one of the SL’s uncommonly known places I’ve been searching for.

The Corn Field, was a place created in Second Life by the Lindens. If people were doing too much griefing to others among other bad things little avatars do. They would be sent to The Corn Field. It was basically a prison to SL residents the Lindens would send you there for amounts of time depending on what you did. The only things there is a t.v. that replays 1940′s black & white channels, a little fire pit area, a tractor with a bad attitude, and endless rows on corn.

The one thing, you could not escape, so no tp’ing out of this location to save yourself. Once your bored of all the corn.

cornfield

As of right now, you can see the location on the map when searched for. But, you can not actually teleport into The Corn Field. Apparently they do open it up time to time, for special events or around Halloween. So, keep your eyes peeled never know when they might open it up again. And, send all the bad avatars back to The Corn Field. :P

If, you’d still like to take your chances & travel their yourself, here’s the landmark.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Now I was so excited when I randomly found this location a while back. I happened to find it on a random tp.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Metis/250/199/199

If anyone has seen the movie or read the book, than you will know what this is (hehe). Basically its the scene with the Whale and the bowl of petunias coming to existence for the first time and their both falling from the sky as the whale starts giving names to things he see and feels. While the bowl of petunias has one thought. :P I’ll post up what was said to help those who have not heard of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

“It is important to note that suddenly, and against all probability, a sperm whale had been called into existence, several miles above the surface of an alien planet. But since this is not a naturally tenable position for a whale, this innocent creature had very little time to come to terms with its identity. This is what it thought as it fell: ‘Ahhh! Whoa! What’s happening? Who am I? Why am I here? What’s my purpose in life? What do I mean by ‘who am I’? Okay, okay, calm down, calm down, get a grip now. Ooh, this is an interesting sensation. What is it? It’s a sort of a tingling in my… well, I suppose I better start finding names for things. Let’s call it a… tail! Yeah! Tail! And hey, what’s this roaring sound, whooshing past what I’m suddenly gonna call my head? Wind! Is that a good name? It’ll do. Yeah, this is really exciting! I’m dizzy with anticipation! Or is it the wind? There’s an awful lot of that now, isn’t it? And what’s this thing coming toward me very fast? So big and flat and round, it needs a big wide sounding name like ‘Ow’, ‘Ownge’, ‘Round’, ‘Ground’! That’s it! Ground! Ha! I wonder if it’ll be friends with me? Hello Ground!’ … Curiously, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell, was: ‘Oh no, not again.’ Many have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that, we should know a lot more about the nature of the universe than we do now.”

And for those not wanting to read that excerpt here is the clip from the movie.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h02a2HSB58M

And here is what the whale and petunias look like in-world -

Whale & Petunias

Whale & Petunias

Keep in mind when you tp to this location, it is very high in the sky so you will start falling when you arrive there. So make sure to fly so you dont fall to the ground. But, the whale is very large can’t miss him.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Metis/250/199/199

I hope everyone has some fun with this, I know I sure did when I found it. couldn’t stop laughing, one of my favorite scenes in the movie. Besides Marvin the depressed robot . :P

And, next time I’ll have something a bit different posted up :P

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Fabulous%20Land/100/6/33

All of WED World  is owned and created by Trevor Sleydon, he is one of the nicest people I have come across in SL, very open and welcoming person. You can find him at the parks pretty often, he is very involved with any happening going on. So, if you see him walking around or have any questions don’t be afraid to approach him I’m sure he will have no problems helping you find something or answering a question. He might even join you on one of the many rides.

* Just to note these parks are not affiliated with Disney in anyway, nor do they create any earnings out of these parks. Any donations brought in are put right back into the parks to keep them running. If you love these places as much as I do toss them a few L’s to keep them up & running. Its always sad when anyone’s favorite place shuts down, so lets help keep them going :)

Theme Parks Part -3 – WED World -WEDCOT Center

And, I’m back for another installment of Second Life Disney parks. Its so nice that there are creative Disney fans, who have taken their view point on their favorite parks, or favorite rides. And recreated them in SL for everyone to enjoy, for most of us who are not close to the actual parks we can still enjoy them in-world.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Fabulous%20Land/100/6/33

WED World- WEDCOT Center & Kingdom of Animals - Sky View

WED World- WEDCOT Center & Kingdom of Animals – Sky View

As you can see by the picture above WED World is a much larger park, with plenty to explore. It is actually made up of two theme parks in one. Really fun, there is WEDCOT Center which has the giant globe you see (which is also a ride) rides about the land, sea, and imagination. Also the World Showcase in WEDCOT brings you to different areas of the world, where you can view different cultures and have fun on a few rides while learning something new.

Entrance of WEDCOT Center & Kingdom of Animals

Entrance of WEDCOT Center & Kingdom of Animals

The conjoining park is just as amazing it’s The Kingdom of Animals, where you can visit Asia, Africa, Dinoland, and Kritter Country. Each area is different and can make you feel as is if your actually traveling through Africa to start a Safari.

Monorail

Monorail

With how large WED World is I’m going to split this into two separate post’s which only seems right since there really are two parks inside of the on sim of WED World. When you first land  its just like the actual park you get off the Monorail and head down the walkway to your destination. And the first area I’m going to write on is -

WEDCOT Entrance

WEDCOT Entrance

WEDCOT Center !!!

Just like the other Disney inspired parks, I love this place just as much. I can’t even say how many time I have actually been here. Countless , I try to stop at WED World on the weekends for their parade’s for both parks, the fireworks, and sometimes there is even a story time. Which is a lot of fun sometimes its accompanied with Disney trivia.

Valentines Display

Valentines Display

This is the display in the middle of the park the parades follow right in front down the street. As you can tell I was here around Valentines day. The great thing is no matter what holiday, there will be decorations around the park. It always looks amazing.

WEDCOT Ferry

WEDCOT Ferry

Like my other park post’s I’m not going to put everything in here to take away from exploring things for yourself. In the center of The World Showcase there is a small lake, you can take a ferry from one side of the park to the other. Its a nice peacefull ride and a complete view of the other countries in the World Showcase.

World Showcase

World Showcase

If your the type that gets a bit queezy from being on the water, and can’t find your sea legs. :P
There is also a way to walk around the Showcase. I’ll be posting up a picture of the different Countries and just a little info on each location. The rest I’ll leave up for you to discover.

Mexico

Mexico

Our first stop in the World Showcase is Mexico. I’ve always loved how this building looks, and I have memories of the real one. Every time I would walk past there would always be a cool breeze which was really nice on a hot day in Orlando.

 You can step inside and everything is very festive, there is a nice relaxing boat ride where you can learn a bit about the culture.

China

China

The next stop is China, I’ve always loved the Architecture of the buildings, their just so colorful and amazing. Next to this beautiful structure there is a really fun trampoline, but be careful it’ll bounce you up pretty high.

Norway

Norway

Next stop Norway. This has always been my all time favorite stop I love everything about it, the set up, the shops, but most of all one of my Favorite rides is here. The Maelstrom

Maelstrom

Maelstrom

On this awesome Norwegian boat tour. You get to learn a bit about Norway’s history and the fables about different types of trolls.

Maelstrom Waterfall

Careful, dont want to end up at the bottom of the falls~

USA

USA

And, right next door is the U.S.A. Pavilion where you can step inside and learn a bit of history on the United States, and if you fallow upstairs there is a video The American Adventure. There is also a lovely Carriage outside right now, looks like a perfect spot for a picture. This area has also been a spot where story times have been held in the past. It does move from time to time, everyone in the park is very helpful don’t be afraid to ask if unsure. :)

Morocco

Morocco

Next stop Morocco. This is a great place to snap a few photos along the way. You can try out some authentic Moroccan dishes, learn a bit of belly dancing, and wander your way through the winding store paths. Its beautiful, I love this area.

England

England

And the last of the World Showcase, but certainly not the least is the town-side of England. There is one of the famous red phone booths, a classic pub, little shops, and

Alice in Wonderland Maze

Alice in Wonderland Maze

an Alice in Wonderland Maze, make sure not to lose the White Rabbit. :P

Now that we’ve gone through parts of The World Showcase, its onto the fun, science, imagination rides.

Journey into Imagination with Figment

Journey into Imagination with Figment

This ride Journey into Imagination with Figment, is such a great memory from my childhood. I love that I can still get to see it as often as I’d like here in SL. I wouldn’t want to take any of the fun out of this ride for those who have never been before. So I’ll just leave this as a great trip back into childhood, defiantly not something to pass up.

Horizons

Horizons

There is also Horizons which takes you on a wonderful trip throughout history, creations, and possibilities for the future.

The Land & The Seas

The Land & The Seas

Here we have The Land & The Seas

In The Land Pavilion there are a few things, there is a Lion King Circle of Life video to watch learning about environmental needs and how we can help. There is also the ride SOARIN’ which takes you on a hang-gliding tour all over the place from the Golden Gate Bridge to White water rapids. And a calming boat ride ,Living with the Land teaches all about greenhouses, gardening, and even where our prims come from (hehe) . There is also a restaurant to get a bit of relaxing from running all over the park.

In The Sea’s you can take a tour through the ocean on the ride The Seas with Nemo and Friends. on your trip into the ocean while seeing many different sea creatures you are on a search to find Nemo who has gone missing. There is also an aquarium that you can view at the end of the ride. Very beautiful area, love being able to look at and learn about so many different aquatic animals in one area.

I havent put everything that you can explore , ride, or encounter throughout WEDCOT Center. There is also the Spaceship Earth ride in the Giant Globe near the entrance, do not miss out on that one either. All of WED World  is owned and created by Trevor Sleydon, he is one of the nicest people I have come across in SL, very open and welcoming person. You can find him at the parks pretty often, he is very involved with any happening going on. So, if you see him walking around or have any questions don’t be afraid to approach him I’m sure he will have no problems helping you find something or answering a question. He might even join you on one of the many rides.

Theme Parks Part -2 – Magic Land~

And now back for the Second theme parks post :D

This post is going to be covering all of Magic Land. This had to be the first Disney inspired SIM that I came across after I joined Second Life. I love this place, everything about Magic Land is great. After landing on the SIM, you are set right outside the entrance. It looks very close to the actual park, walk through the little tunnel which on the walls are landmarks to a few other Disney inspired parks, and a notecard on what to do if you want to wear a character costume through the park. Just so other guest do not confuse you as someone who works for Magic Land. Right now Magic Land is celebrating being in SL for 5 years. They have special events and parades going on. There are parades and fireworks here every weekend they have an events list you can checkout in the front of the park, and also the group sends out note cards to keep you updated on events and if characters have been spotted walking through the park.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Magic%20Land/88/111/3706

Magic Land Entrance

And after you step through the little tunnel, there will be City hall to the left of you. Inside City Hall you can get a map, a few souvenirs, and cute Mickey hats :) . Theres also a contact area along with through out the park (trashcans) that you can click on for security if you ever find your self being troubled or greifed by someone.

City Hall

Now that you have your Mickey Ears on , time to start checking out the park. The first area you are going to come across,  will be Main St. There are different shops that you can checkout and items you can purchase, along with a minny theater with Mickey movies playing.

Main St.

Main St.

As you walk your way down the street passing little shops headed towards the Castle.

Cinderella's Castle

Cinderella’s Castle

Once you reach the front of Cinderella’s Castle, There are a couple different ways that you can go. If you turn to the left in front of the Castle you will find yourself headed towards Adventure land & Frontier land. Down these paths you will find The Enchanted Tiki-Room (under-construction),  The Jungle Cruise, and Tarzans Tree House in Adventure land.

Adventure land & Frontier land

Adventure land & Frontier land

Fallowing down Frontier land you will come across shops that resemble the old-time wild west era. You can take a ride around Tom Sawyers island on the Mark Twain ferry boat. Or you can take a wooden raft and run around Tom Sawyers Island exploring the caves. There is also an area where you can catch the Disney Railroad that fallows around the outer skirt of the park.

The Mark Twain & Tom Sawyer Island

The Mark Twain & Tom Sawyer Island

Head under the Railroad bridge and walk up the hill, you’ll find yourself in The Hundred Acre Woods. There’s a Heffalumps & Woozles maze, you can explore Owl’s and Poohs home, plus a couple other attractions.

The Hundred Acre Woods

But, if you would have taken a right at Cinderella’s Castle , you would find yourself in Tomorrow Land.

Tomorrow Land

Tomorrow Land

This area is all about the future and what’s to come. There are a lot of rides in this area, two of my favorites are Star Tours which takes you on a ride and puts you right in the Star Wars movies. The other favorite is Space Mountain, a roller-coaster that sends you flying through space ( its pretty quick, make sure you hold on tight).

Star Tours

Star Tours

The other attactions you can check-out are : Circle Vision, Carosel of progress, Captain E.O., The People Mover, Astro Orbiter, Autopia, 20,000 leagues under the Sea,

Carousel of Progress, Space Mountain, Captain E.O.

Carousel of Progress, Space Mountain, Captain E.O.

And, also in the same general area is The Matterhorn. A roller-coaster that takes you up into a mountain on a bobsled flying past angry Yeti’s. Or hop on the Monorail and take a ride around the park.

The Matterhorn, Autopia, 20,000 leagues under the sea

The Matterhorn, Autopia, 20,000 leagues under the sea

It you went straight through the tunnel under Cinderella’s Castle you’ll find yourself right in front of a sword in the stone. You can try your luck at pulling it out, you never know maybe you’ll get it out and become the king or queen :D

Sword in the Stone

Sword in the Stone

This areas behind the Castle is Fantasy land, where everyone’s childhood memories of our favorite Characters or Princesses are. You can take a ride on Snow Whites Scary Adventure, And sometimes one of your favorite Characters might be around to take the ride with you :)

Snow Whites Scary Adventure

Snow Whites Scary Adventure

Take a flying ride on Dumbo’ the flying elephant , or a boat ride through Storybook land where you can see what your favorite characters have been up to, and right next door take a ride on Casey Jr. Circus Train.

Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Storybook Land, Casey Jr. Circus Train

Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Storybook Land, Casey Jr. Circus Train

And last but not least for Fantasy land, which may be everyone’s old time favorite is Its a Small World. For everyone who knows this ride needs little explanation. But for everyone else, on Its a Small World you are taken on a boat ride traveling through different areas of the world. As these little doll’s sing and dance to the music. Getting a look at different cultures and languages.

Its a Small World

Its a Small World

So, now you’ve seen a few areas that you can visit while spending time in Magic Land. Like always I haven’t shown everything. I never want to take away from the surprises that fall along every corner. This is a wonderful tribute to The Magic Kingdom. They also change the decorations during the holidays , and right now they have an area set up for the movie Frozen. This was the park that I had been Snow White after first joining Second Life, I just hadn’t had the time to keep it up on a regular basis. But, it is still one of my favorite places to go too.

Me as Snow White

Me as Snow White

And with this picture I’ll end my second Disney park post. Anyone who loves anything Disney or The Magic Kingdom. Should head over this way, I think everyone will be pleasantly surprised with how close it resembles the actual park.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Magic%20Land/88/111/3706

In my next post I’ll be following up with the other Disney Inspired park, which is WEDCOT that is set up like Epcot, and a separate area like The Animal Kingdom.

* Just to note these parks are not affiliated with Disney in anyway, nor do they create any earnings out of these parks. Any donations brought in are put right back into the parks to keep them running. If you love these places as much as I do toss them a few L’s to keep them up & running.
