5:40 AM - The Magic Kingdom for Roller Coaster Tycoon
David writes...I have a recreation of The Magic Kingdom in Florida that I have been working on using the Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 theme park simulation game.
You can see a screen shot gallery at:http://www.tycoonplanet.com/page.asp?page=home&home=ZetsWDW
Claimed to be "the most realistic WDW creation for RCT2 on the Internet," the technology in Rollercoaster Tycoon always makes things look like Legoland ;-) Here's Cinderella Castle
, for example. (Hmmm, I wonder if someone has done Legoland ni RCT? Prolly...)
I, of course, was trying to find the Haunted Mansion, but it's not there yet (in the screen shots, at least).
For other 3-D recreations of Disney parks, there are two level conversions for Duke Nukem 3-D floating around as well (one that is a game map that has New Orleans Square with Pirates and the Mansion, as well as Tomorrowland, and the other is just a 3-D recreation of the Mansion). You can also find a VRML (virtual reality HTML language, basically) recreation of WDW at http://vrwdw.tripod.com/
Sounds like an idea for a good Disney fan website just tracking the various approaches to recreating our favorite theme parks ;-)
