For those who don't know, I'm currently working on a park called 'Discovery Island'. Released as a series of ride videos, the project currently has 2 parts.

Part 1 - Welcome: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvGGuCPjkIY
Part 2 - From the Earth to the Moon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGEU2_nQKwI&feature=related

The third part was originally going to be 'The Nautilus' or 'Doctor Who: The Ride', however 'The Nautilus' is currently not up to scratch, and Doctor Who: The Ride is repeatedly being delayed, and I'm only about 10% of the way through making it. Instead, I decided to flex my dark-ride muscles with...

Around the World in 80 Days




Around the World in 80 Days will be a slow dark ride across the globe; through ancient rainforests to the greatest cities, from oceans to ice-caps. Unlike most of my rides, this won't have any proper storyline. It's just an experience, a series of scenes. Think Spaceship Earth meets It's a Small World.

I will be using an omnimover RR CTR, and the first scenes, as shown here, are the South American rainforests.

So, if I read this correctly, this will be more in a showcase style rather than focusing on a fixed storyline throughout the ride?
It sounds rather interesting as you haven't been doing this before.

The pictures look very nice and the lighting is beautiful. Nothing to criticize about, keep up the good work!

Precisely. Basically all my rides are fixed stories played out as rides...I kind of just want to showcase some pretty objects this time.

From the jungles of South America, we move onto the wilderness of the American West.

It might be tricky, but have you considered adding some scenes from the Jules Verne novel?

Whilst I have read a lot of Verne novels, I must confess right now I have never read Around the World in 80 Days, so I'd have to read it/read up about it, to know what scenes could be added.

The basics were also covered (sort of) in the seminal Around The World With Willy Fog!
