This post hits a little closer to home. A couple days ago I had watched the movie Hook, which I have loved since I was little when it first came out. I can bet I wore out the VHS that it was on, from all the replay.
So, I thought hmmm…. I wonder if there is anything Peter Pan or Neverland related in Second Life.
At first I had found post from the early 2000’s on a Peter Pan themed location, but sadly it no longer exists, and the second place I found was on MJ’s Neverland Ranch. All which are wonderful, but not exactly what I was searching for.
Then to my surprise, I found a place called The New Neverland, Never Grow Up Adoption’s, and I was super excited. Haha really I almost felt like a child again.
Turns out that my Uncle Scorch (Scorch Lundquist/Warrior) is a Co-Owner along with his family: Elisa Lundquist (wife), Jess Marie Lundquist (daughter), and Ama Kaira Arkright-Optera (mother-in-law) who all help run this location. Along with the builders/employees who have done and amazing job : Kiddo Figga Arkright ,Drewcifer.Woodrunner ,Serenity Remsen . Majority of the building has been done by : Drewcifer.Woodrunner , and Kiddo Figga Arkright. Who by looking at every detail added to this SIM, you can tell heart was definitely put into this location.
This New Neverland is set up amazingly they even went off a map from the book to make the location as realistic to the book as they could. Also worked on the water ways trying to make them as accurate as possible.
When you first land you are greated by every character from the story that you love Peter Pan, Wendy, Tinker Bell, Capt. James Hook, and last but not least Mr. Scheme . To the left in the ocean you can see Capt. Hook’s ship which in the future could host some awesome dance parties aboard ( Def. looking forward to that), amazing Gacha events for the future, paintball, and greedy games also.
Something a bit different here than other locations, but still holds true to Peter’s story. Helping out the Lost Boys. This destination is also an Adoption agency named Never Grow Up (which fits this area perfectly). So, for anyone looking to adopt or even being a foster family this is a great place to head to, with panels for orphans and parents. They also have a medical area for anyone needing a bit of help with the little ones.
As, I walked around from the entrance the first area I found myself looking at is a small bunker where you can play paint ball. I’ve never played before but knowing that its here, I think I may have to try it out.
Next I found a bunch of shopping kiosks down this path, filled with plenty of childrens clothing and different items. A lovely place to go if you are looking to by your little prince or princess something new.
Not too far from the Kiosks is also a Building with shops and some Gacha machines.
There are some cute little camps and tents set up, with a small pillow out front saying (Goodnight Moon)
And, campfires throughout the SIM.
Towards the far end from the entrance, you will find yourself in front of the beautiful log cabin home, for all of the children.
Out front there is a wonderful play area and jungle gym.
As, you walk through the front door you see a very large front room, where a T.V. will be placed. For family movie’s and game nights.
Walk to the right and you will see their beautiful kitchen and cafeteria. Soon, the entire SIM will be all 100% Life HUD compatible. Creating a more life like environment, and making everything more realistic. Where eating, sleeping, bathing are all necessities to stay healthy or the life meter starts to go down.
Also on the first floor of the cabin you will find the rooms for Senior and Jr. guards. They are here to watch over all of the children and make sure they stay safe, so nothing bad happens to them.
Next fallow your way up the gorgeous spiral staircase upstairs, where you will see a lovely open room. Upstairs you can find the children’s rooms. Both decorated one for boys and another separate room for the girls. The beds are these adorable little ships, they even have a small wheel so they can pretend to be sailing across the seven seas.
Each of the rooms also has a patio, with cute telescopes so the kids can stare up at the nights sky star gazing.
The other side also has a very large veranda with a beautiful fireplace, to keep everyone all toasty warm.
Right outside the log cabin you will find a rope bridge that leads to a large hill, and another rope bridge that fallows up to this beautiful floating island. with old ruins, a small fire pit. Looks like an amazing area to sit around and tell ghost stories :) .
Besides the amazing landscapes. I love the beautiful mountains and volcano’s you can see in the distance, along with the glassy water surrounding the island.
The other amazing aspect of this location, if you are looking to adopt or foster a child. They have a process to set up the right child with the right family. To make sure that everyone meshes well and will get along with each other. Which I think is very important when it comes to adopting, want to make sure everyone gets along together :) .
Things are still being built up on the island, so what I’ve shown here are not the only things you will be able to find. Like always I leave things open for you to explore. I hope everyone takes a moment to get fly back into childhood and take a trip to Neverland. I know I love the motto “Never grow up”, its simple and true.
But, you are only as old as you feel.
Toodles , till next time
P.s.- Keep in mind next month they will be hosting a huge bazaar and gacha event. Make sure to check it out, everyone loves Gacha’s :D
