    Work in progress, but this is a rendering I'm working on for my personal South America project intended for Animal Kingdom.

    This is Auyán-tepui, a prominent plateau formation in Venezuela made particularly famous in the movie Up. It hosts the Angel Falls, i.e. the tallest waterfall in the world.

    The ride inside is called Angel Falls - Voyage Within, hosted by the fictitious ecotourism group "Expediciones Parakupa", and intervened by the power of the falls & the ancient spirit Auyán who guards the entire tepui.

    I'll share the final rendering soon and then discuss more details about my project. :)

    What rendering program do you use. I would love to start learning it. I currently do Sketchup for my own HHN house models.

    Please do! I love making/seeing HHN house renderings. But this is all hand-drawn using a drawing tablet (pick a cheap one up at your local pawn shop near any art school) and Autodesk Sketchbook (which is only $30 for a whole year).

    This would look fantastic if Disney decided to do something similar to this for Up. I think they could create an area in AK with the house on the top of the mountains with the balloons blowing about in the wind and create a ride similar to Fallon with it set inside the house itself.

    I'm getting a serious Cars Land vibe from this which I think is hands down the most impressively themed land any where.

    Great job, mate! :cheers:

    First thing that came to my mind too, was UP. Loved that movie. Maybe the most touching 20 minute opening ever.

    I've been meaning to watch it again, I've only seen it once but that opening makes a Scottish man cry more than he should.

    Anyone that doesn't get choked UP during that opening has a heart of wood....Great movie. Can't understand why Disney never did more with it at the theme parks, short of a foamhead walking around.

    I remember watching UP for the first time and I am one to usually cry close to the end of a movie, but UP had me in tears early on in the film. The movie was fantastic and one I need to watch again soon.

    Small update to the rendering I previously posted:

    angelfalls_rendering_web.jpg

    ALSO I am now currently employed FT at a local fabrication company that creates theme park set pieces and props. This is my very first and confident step into the realm of themed attraction design, and I could not be happier or more excited to be doing what I'm doing! I am working on projects that I cannot share, but that many of you will unknowingly pass by or interact with when a certain themed attraction opens soon. Really exciting stuff.

    I don't even know you, but I'm super happy for you. Doing something you love is the best way to live a content life. I wish to impact the world someday with my art, and for you the same. CONGRATULATIONS!

    Love the idea of having a few art deco facades facing the Universal Plaza tower; they'd complement each other nicely. And what WWoHP additions do you mean? What would you replace Cartooniversal with?

    The main rumor for Cartooniversal is a Animation/Hello Kitty based store, along with a family center.

    I'd keep that as it is, but incorporate a mix of a spanish/art deco.

    As for Potter, some of it is stuff from Osaka, in particular; the fire effects for one being a show at the Tri-Wizard stage like the Osaka, and the other being one from Osaka itself.

    As for Fallon, I'd agree. And that it is feasible that they can do it for a mid to late summer launch. But from what it seems, they are doing something more-or-less cheaper.

    I used one of those supposedly leaked renderings of the upcoming Donkey Kong ride as reference to paint this concept image of what it might look like if the ride was indoors.

    The lights on the cars are a really nice touch.
