This whole area is filled with so many amazing colors.

Beautiful plants,

Aviary Photo_130602568207995345

and animals.

Aviary Photo_130602566483689925

There are so many areas you can walk through even little paths that may seem hidden.

Avatarenter-waterfall_001_edited

Climb through the levels of a giant tree, see where the Na’vi people sleep, eat, meditate, heal each other, along with many other wonderful sights.

Avatarenter-tree_001_edited

Its amazing being able to immerse yourself into this movie. Everything has been brought to life.

Avatarenter-soul,tree_001_edited

I really loved being able to see the floating mountains. Such an amazing place.

Once you get to the floating mountains, its so beautiful up there. Just make sure not to fall off.

Aviary Photo_130610074454671013

You can also check out the human area, to see the machines that helped the humans turn into the Na’vi people.

Avatarenter-science.humanarea-box_001_editedAvatarenter-science.humanarea-Na'vi-table_001_edited

Along with the rest of the items used by the humans.

Avatarenter-science area_001_edited

These are only a few of the things you can see as you explore this area. Make sure to wear the explorers tag from the entrance. Before you tp into Na’vi territory. Don’t want to be a threat to the Na’vi people, who you can run into while you are here. This is also a great spot for photos, I can’t get over how amazing the colors are. So vibrant.

I really hope everyone takes a moment out of busy days or night. To do a bit of wandering around Planet Avatar. You will  not be disappointed.

Catch you guys next time.

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 😀

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

* 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. 😀

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.

* Never Grow Up *

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.

Hook

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.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/TheNewNeverLand/230/93/22

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.

Aviary Photo_130455557472450243

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.

Aviary Photo_130454728151636619

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.

Aviary Photo_130455558780511614

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.

Aviary Photo_130454722415349205

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.

Aviary Photo_130454750786584647

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.

Aviary Photo_130454753832889809

Not too far from the Kiosks is also a Building with shops and some Gacha machines.

Aviary Photo_130454755389816492

There are some cute little camps and tents set up, with a small pillow out front saying (Goodnight Moon)

Aviary Photo_130454750112956032

And, campfires throughout the SIM.

Aviary Photo_130454752872210406

Towards the far end from the entrance, you will find yourself in front of the beautiful log cabin home, for all of the children.

Aviary Photo_130454729951566087

Out front there is a wonderful play area and jungle gym.

Aviary Photo_130454752014030044

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.

Aviary Photo_130454747092863973

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.

Aviary Photo_130454746427035939

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.

Aviary Photo_130454745300835675

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.

Aviary Photo_130454731237133719 Aviary Photo_130454745853873845

Each of the rooms also has a patio, with cute telescopes so the kids can stare up at the nights sky star gazing.

Aviary Photo_130454748542615778

The other side also has a very large veranda with a beautiful fireplace, to keep everyone all toasty warm.

Aviary Photo_130454747698785100

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 🙂 .

Aviary Photo_130454756281695196

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.

Aviary Photo_130454758586343436

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.
