The Reels Movie Studios

Wed Mar 14, 2012 2:42 am

My 2nd Attempt at a more detailed/themed park (previously Tanner Towers) however my new project is less of a story, and will be more just updates, as i update the park.
As the Name suggests it is built around some old movie studios, whilst also keeping the theme of movies/tv.
The park will have areas based on specific films, which will include more as the park expands...

For Now the parks areas will be..
Thunderbirds
Indiana Jones

*Just to let you know, i have taken the pictures this way as it just how i prefer it fo now until i open the park to guests*
Heres Progress so far...

The Parks Logo..
Image
Entrance from roadway...
Image
Main Entrance, No ticket kiosks yet...
Image
The Advertisments of the Movies that are included in the park, also the movies themes are playin in the plaza
Image
The Old Film Studios left empty, may house rides/attractions in future...
Image
First area based around Tracy Island and Thunderbirds, Main entrance...
Image
Recreation of Tracy Island, complete with the Tracy's House..
Image
Thunderbird 1 Prepares for launch from the Pool... changes may be made to this area
Image
Thunderbird 3 launch from the tower...
Image

Hope you like so far, changes to the pool will be made, and all comments welcome...

Thanks

**OPEN DAY HAS ARRIVED!!!**

So TODAY the park opened its gates for the first time, and although there was some bad weather it seemed the public really enjoyed the park, and everythin went down really well...
-----------------------------
The First guests arriving at the plaza...
Image
Guests arriving for the first time down he main street..
Image
The Old Studio buildings remain unused except for the Arena building which has now also been fenced off for the time being...
Image
Both areas proved populr from the start of the day, Tracey Island was getting crowds almost immedatley...
Image
The crowds eventually arrived in Indianna Jones' Egpt area...
Image
The centrepiece of Egypt, th pyramid is now open and th secret inside can finally be revealed...
Image
As soon as you set foot in the Queue line you are immersed in Egyptian theming..
Image
A BIG clue as the Queue line starts to make its way underground...
Image
When u prepare to board and look up you see where your heading but still aren't sure what to expect...
Image
The park allowed me special access into the area above which is NOT open to guests, but shows the theming as the car is launched upwards then dropped...
Image
Upon Exiting the Secret Chamber you get an amazing view of the Bi-Planes Coaster...
Image
When i was leaving Bi-Plane Coaster a queue had begin to form for what seemed to become quite a popular ride...
Image
The Space Rings in tracey Island Proving popular for Kids/Adults...
Image
I was right in thinking Test Flight would prove popular, and by the queue it recieved i wasn't wrong...
Image
Fantastic view of Tracey Island from the top of Test Flight...
Image
Guest began to leave after a great open day...
Image
Empty Plaza lit up at night with he Pyramid backdrop..

---------------------------------------------------------------
BIG NEWS - STUDIOS ARENA WILL OPEN FOR FIRST TIME TOMORROW!!!

STEPS - THE ULTIMATE TOUR 2012 is at this moment been set-up an tested inside the arena for the concert tomorrow, this will be the test as to whether the park feels the old studio give the correct sound for a professional Concert, if not the park plan to show concerts in a different method...
Pictures will follow...
