Great Second Life Destinations: The Journey to the Center of the Earth Ride at Discovery


I visited on the Journey To the Center of the Earth Ride at Discovery (a virtual Disney Epcot Center) and thought that the attraction was one of the best things that Second Life has to offer. The attraction, based on a Jules Verne novel of the same name, is a virtual version of the ride at Tokyo DisneySea, and takes you through an underground fantasy world of moving lava, mineral stalactites, and strange plant and animal life. It is one of several great attractions at Discovery, which is celebrating its first Second Life year and will be opening several new attractions later this Spring. I highly recommend you visit.

  1. Rico and I went tonight -- that was well engineered ride - not jerky for us like many amusement rides often are. THEN we went into a theatre that was showing a Small World after All -- I turned to Rico, asked him how old he thought that film was... he guessed "Oh about fifty years" we then learned it was about the New York World's Fair that opened exactly 50 years ago on Tuesday, April 22.

  2. I love the New York Great Fair of 1939 - there once was another virtualization of it on another world three years ago -- you can see the photography here. Thanks for the heads up I need to go back. http://eddihaskell.blogspot.com/2011/05/1939-new-york-worlds-fair-on-reaction.html
