New dreams

The Cultus Lake Adventure Park was a very exciting project without a doubt. The park was was enjoyed by thousands of people through the summer months. It went so well that the owners are now in planning for a second phase which is very exciting! That of course means we too are back at the drawing board beginning the concepts for some very cool new adventures. The plans are still too preliminary for a big reveal but I can show one drawing as a teaser...

This is going to be very exciting and very fun! Stay tuned...

One more master plan

The masterplan has been locked down since the beginning of September or so we thought. But in Trinidad things are a little more laid back and casual. A jogging path was built around the property and asfter it was built they did a survey, only to discover that they had built it in the the gerneral location it was supposed to be, up to fifteen feet off course in places, both into and outside of the supposed property lines. Rather than delay the project (even more) with tear-outs and rebuilds of the jogging path it was time for one last version of the master plan. So that I did.

This is the best version yet of the master plan and addresses a few issues that had cropped up in the last weeks. Maybe now the onsite construction can start at last. Here's hoping!

Fondue Friday

Today was declared FONDUE FRIDAY by the crew. I spent much of the day out of the shop but when I returned in the late afternoon the remnants of the cheeze and chocolate fondues were still on the lunch table and the chocolate was all gone. The crew obviously had indulged in an LOT of chocolate and sugar for spirits were very,very high and the work seemed to be going at a frantic pace. The result was that the ship was almost painted by quitting time and looking very fine. The welding crew had done lots of work as well.

The Treasure Quest sign had also been polished off and was looking mighty fine.
By noon on Monday we will be able to begin moving pieces out of the shop to make room for a whole new batch of features.
