* Twosome for Tata’s fallowup after-event *

I had created a post before hand to let everyone know about this event. And after being there, and how amazing it was. I would love to show everyone a few bits of highlights from the night. To start things off, here is some information which helped this event come about.

ABOUT MAKING STRIDES

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer or MSABC is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting more than 300 communities to finish the fight. Every breast cancer walk and event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to honor those who have battled breast cancer, raise awareness about what we can do to reduce our breast cancer risk, and race money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with research, information, services, and access to mammograms for women who need them.

HISTORY OF MAKING STRIDES

In 1984, Massachusetts cancer survivor Margery Gould Rath wanted to find a way to celebrate fellow cancer survivors by raising funds for the American Cancer Society. Working with a committee of fellow survivors and other volunteers, “Margie” created a “move-along-a-thon” called Making Strides Against Cancer to bring people together in an event to move the fight against cancer forward. The first event, held in Boston, drew 200 participants and instantly became an annual city tradition.

In 1993, the event officially became known as the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, attracting 4,000 walkers at events in Boston and in Manchester, New Hampshire. Since then, Margie’s vision has inspired 8 million walkers to participate in Making Strides events in more than 270 communities across the country, raising more than $460 million to fight breast cancer. Margie remained a dedicated Making Strides volunteer until she lost her battle with cancer in 2001.

The progress we’re making because of Making Strides supporters like Margie is nothing short of remarkable. But it’s no time to rest. That’s why we need your help. More walkers mean the next big breast cancer research breakthrough. More walkers mean free lodging and rides to treatment for breast cancer patients who need it. More walkers fundraising mean more survivors who will celebrate more birthdays.

* Enchanted Tiki Room *

So, I spent this last weekend out doing birthday things. Which was an awesome time. Got back and found out one of my favorite places had added a new ride!!!

Very excited-

Welcome to Magicland’s new

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bracket/195/113/27

The Enchanted Tiki Room ~!

Aviary Photo_130566028479138835

I had posted about The Tiki room before it was finnished in an earlier post of my tour around Disney Sim’s in Sl. So, I am happy to post that everything is finnished. It’ll take you back, because everything is perfectly matched to the ride itself. Kristie Beck and the other builder/creators have done an amazing job.

Directly to the right of the Tiki Room, you can even grab yourself one of the amazing Pineapple Whips, and the best part unlike the real Disney parks you will not be waiting an hour until you get one of your own. Gotta love that :D

Aviary Photo_130566036336571199

After you step through the entrance way of The Enchanted Tiki Room, next to the stairs you will see a small Totem make sure to click on the little guy. He is there to pre-load all of the sounds & music for the ride, and without clicking on him you wont be able to get into the Tiki Room.

Aviary Photo_130566034955227084

When you step inside find your self a seat along one of the four walls, there are benches set up around the room.

Once the doors close your lovely host will come in and let the birds know they have guest waiting.

Aviary Photo_130566009941887433

Sit down, sit back, and enjoy this wonderful show.

Aviary Photo_130566007301732670

Of beautiful colors, very talented birds,

Aviary Photo_130566022553125300

some lively singing flowers,

Aviary Photo_130566026051005247

and even a few totems join in.

Aviary Photo_130566026922073611

This only gives you a slight preview of this amazing show. Everything in here works like clockwork, and brings back some great memories. If you get the chance swing on by to check out the new amusement at Magicland Park.

* The Pharaoh’s Tomb *

I was brought to this place by a friend a while ago. And, I remembered having so much fun walking through the pyramid. Avoiding the snakes & scorpions. The best part this place puts you inside of your own Indiana Jones adventure.

Welcome to the Pharaoh’s Tomb, of The Da Vinci Gardens SIM.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Kalepa/75/134/1964

Aviary Photo_130554040615371416

When you first land in this area you are surrounded by an entire Egyptian themed SIM. You’ll see a Gennie lamp that you can click on to find other areas you can teleport to. The Da Vinci Gardens SIM holds many other themed spots besides this Egyptian area.

As you can see from the picture above there are a few different ways you can be given a tour of this location. If you want to take up into the sky to see a birds eye view you can choose to hop in the hot air balloon,

Aviary Photo_130554039514439145

or my favorite the flying magic carpet. If you want to stay closer to the ground you can choose to take a ride on the golden scarab beetle, tour on the beautiful river by boat, and also

Aviary Photo_130554042134494565

take this guided tour being carried around by these four gentlemen.

Aviary Photo_130554045472180837

You can also find many romantic spots to relax and take photographs.

Aviary Photo_130553509608226412

If you are looking for more of an adventure this place is filled with plenty to keep you on your toes. There spots for you to dig up some buried treasures.

Aviary Photo_130554043064234580

Even Chariot races against your friends.

Aviary Photo_130554035949164948

Now for the reason I love this spot the most. The Pharaoh’s Tomb you’ll find yourself outside of this gigantic pyramid. But, don’t think this will be an easy adventure to get to the Pharaoh’s treasure chamber. You will find many obstacles to get past before you make it there.

Aviary Photo_130554038097870153

Make sure to set your daylight settings to midnight for the best experience. You will come across many trap doors, scorpions, fire, moving & falling platforms, alligators, mummy’s, and many other life threatening things. This pyramid made me feel like I was in my own Indiana Jones adventure. I haven’t had this much fun running through obstacles in  a long time.  Also keep your eyes peeled for golden scarabs a long the way they like to hand out Linden dollars if you choose the right amount :D .

Aviary Photo_130554036898573712

When you survive to the end, you’ll be face to face with the Pharaoh’s tomb in the treasure chamber. Everything glimmering with gold. Don’t forget to click on his tomb, you could have a chance to win some Linden Dollars here also.

Not wanting to ruin the surprise of the obstacles you will come across, I’ve only posted a couple pictures from inside the pyramid. Wouldn’t want to take the fun away from this experience.

I hope you all take the time to check this place out and bring all your friends to join in on the fun.

* The Leviathan Skeleton *

This is a pretty cool location, I had come across it while I was out boating around. I ended up flying right into this island and couldn’t believe what I saw in front of me.

Welcome to The Leviathan Skeleton

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Ahab’s%20Haunt/116/143/23

Leviathan-island_001

As you can see there is a giant dinosaur skeleton on top of this island in the middle of the sea.

Leviathan-island-5_001

From the head all the way to the tail you can see this skeleton is a giant.

Leviathan-island-4_001

There is even a pool that fills the center of the island where you can float around on little tubes.

Leviathan-island-34_001

Different places to relax along the beach.

Leviathan-island-2_001

And plenty of sunken ships, along with other items to explore in the center lagoon.

Leviathan-island-3_001

You might even get lucky to spot sailboats cruising around you, this area of the sea is also used for sailboat races.

Leviathan-island-6,boat-racer_001

I happened to just catch someone nearby practicing for their next up coming race. And they really are cruising fast on the water.

I actually really enjoyed finding this location, and finding it by chance made this all the more fun to write about. The Leviathan island is a very relaxing place to just get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday things, or just to explore. There’s a small pier on the island where you can rez a boat into the water and set out to see what you can come across yourself. They even have a little free sailboat to pickup for those without boats of their own. Its a nice simple sailboat that’s also easy to steer and maneuver around places.

Leviathan-island-1_001

I hope everyone has fun adventuring to this Dino island like I have. See ya next time ~

* Early Halloween *

My most favorite time of the year in Second Life is Halloween. I love all the rides, costumes, decorations, and all the creepy hunts that pop-up. So since I’ve been missing it I’m throwing up a Halloween location.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LandOurs/209/45/601

This place is great the, first stop is going to be The Haunted Mansion.

Aviary Photo_130517523581639094
I love this ride, just brings back so many great memories from Disney.

On the right side as you start walking towards the mansion, there is a giant spooky pirate ship you can also check out.

Aviary Photo_130517535138555148

And if you continue down you will head straight for the Haunted Mansion.

Aviary Photo_130517527393744013

 Just like the real life ride, you can find the entrance with the tombstones along with a waiting time sign ( but you wont be waiting hehe).

Aviary Photo_130517532224457958

Besides the Haunted Mansion there are 3 other spooky areas to explore. The next one we’ll visit is The Zombie Hunt.

Aviary Photo_130517524926377393

And this is just as it says a zombie Hunt. Now to get through the gate their are a couple things you need to know. So don’t miss the big red sign to the left of the gate.

Aviary Photo_130517537803640851

They also supply you with a free Hud and free weapons so you can take out these crazy blood thirsty zombies.

fallowed with a dark maze you can wander through. Enter the little green hallway to the left of Zombie Hunt.

Aviary Photo_130517536199052699

You can also find Lucien Asylum

Aviary Photo_130517623059354823

Step inside this spooky Asylum if you dare.

Aviary Photo_130517624464699169

And last but not least you can ride the Bannon’s Vanisher.

Aviary Photo_130517620666229865

An old abandoned thrill ride, step on at your own risk.

Aviary Photo_130517621837469959

I love this area, gives you a taste of Halloween all year long. So when you need a spooky escape you can always head out to this location for a killer time.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LandOurs/209/35/601

I hope everyone has a great time checking out this early Halloween pick. See ya next time.-

Happy exploring-

* Enchanted Adventures Theme Park *

With it being summer time. I have been a bit busy with vacations and actually enjoying the weather. Which I do not have the chance to do all year round. So, being in the spirit I’m putting out a theme park post ~!

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Enchanted%20Adventures/128/9/34

And today were going to The Enchanted Adventures Theme Park !!!

Aviary Photo_130493653387227099(The first sight from landing)

This place is great, I’ve been to this park a few times over the years. I held off for a while on posting, because I know they have been doing a HUGE restoration of the entire park. Everything about this place looks new and wonderful. So, I was excited to jump in and see how it looks.

Aviary Photo_130493655575612920(outside the landing point)

Right outside of the landing point there are train tracks that lead around the entire park, from the looks this may still be under construction. But, looking forward to hopping on once its finished.

When you head out the front doors, you can walk your way down to the Main Street entrance. First time here? No problem walk to the gazibo in the center and you will find a map of the park, to help out with what you can do here. :D

Aviary Photo_130493664791494783

Walking down Main Street, you will find plenty of shops filled with great items. From stuffed characters toys, actual character avatars, snow globes, clothing, and many other wonderful creations.

Aviary Photo_130493662781305093( statue of Oswald & Mickey )

On the right side a bit down the street you can even find the magical cinema, step on in to catch a flick on Oswald.

Aviary Photo_130493663866462626

There’s even a small arcade with many different games to play, even wack-a-mole. And the main beauty you see at the end of the street of course is. The magical castle!!!

Aviary Photo_130493661503849311

Now, when you walk through the park there are a few different ways you can go. If you decide to go straight through the castle, you can explore the inside. At the top there are beautiful paintings from all of the favorite Disney movies. And, if you head to the back of the castle there is a lovely carousel.

Aviary Photo_130493652148994534

Finding my way around the carousel. I come across a beautiful garden filled with Alice in Wonderland.

Aviary Photo_130493671117955375

This area has three different areas, you can head to the right and see recreations from the movie.

Aviary Photo_130493669678910989

Go straight into a maze, and head to wonderland.

Aviary Photo_130493671974089829

Or go left and fallow the caterpillar through Wonderland.

Aviary Photo_130493674608525328

And, next to the Alice in Wonderland right you can even wander through the Red Queens Castle.

Aviary Photo_130493673323313337

In Enchanted Adventures you can also find a Spooky Haunted Mansion.

Aviary Photo_130493660504923342(step inside, if you dare)

Near the mansion you will also find a very large Pirate Ship, along with a fishing spot.

Aviary Photo_130493667404194427

There is also a Mysterious Island,

Aviary Photo_130493666195515005

Either choose to walk along this walkway near the pirate ship. Or, take the scenic boat across.

Aviary Photo_130493650756039268

If you are a bit more adventurous you can turn left at the boat landing and see where this tunnel leads you.

Aviary Photo_130493668520735234

At the top of the Mysterious Island, you can find a Balloon ride. Which takes you on a tour of this beautiful park. Inside the Volcano is definitely a mysterious place. Filled with danger signs and bright colorful lights.

I really had a lot of fun running around Enchanted Adventures. This place has changed and grown so much since the first time I was here. And, I cant wait to see how much it grows in the future. So, get your family together and swing on by, it’s so much fun.

And beyond what I’ve shown in photos here, there are plenty of things left to explore and experience.
