No idea, but off the top of my head, I'll just say the owner was looking for a more creative way to show the house. It could actually work. There are people that buy into stuff like that.

Park City Alpine Coaster POV Roller Coaster in the SNOW Utah Ski Resort

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OETp9nCKI3M

I've never heard of, let alone seen a Roller Coaster surrounded by mountains and mountains of snow. Is this a common thing in your neck of the woods? Sh*t, when it rains at Disneyland, EVERYTHING shuts down......even the Horses!!!! With that said, this looks hella fun and would be one that I'd definitely check out for myself in person.

Couple visits 3 Disney parks in 1 day

Pfftt. I'd be impressed if they went to four in one day.

Star Wars Theme Park Expansion at Disneyland


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kV6SroyQbbE

I forgot to post this earlier. This new information about the proposed 50 Acre expansion of Disneyland devoted entirely to Star Wars is great news for me. It's the only thing that would get me to go back to Disneyland. When it opens, I intend to be there opening week. Not going to even try for opening day with the amount of people likely to camp out. But yeah, very excited for this. I'm still trying to wrap my head around where exactly they are going to break ground. It's already maxed out. Did they buy out a few more blocks adjacent to Disneyland?

Photos of an abandoned Disney water park will haunt your dreams

I like these kinds of before and after kind of stories. Kind of surprised that the park looks like this given the fact that Disney still owns the land (I assume they do). Knowing that they usually have a high turn over rate and just move onto the "next big thing", you would think they would have done the same here and created something else to make money off of the land.

Disney Parks Break Ground on 'Star Wars' Land



I was very curious as to where Star Wars Land was going to fit within the park. I figured the natural course would be to expand the park which would mean buying out adjacent land, but even I didn't know if that was doable. Well, from the first image in the link, it clearly looks like they are breaking ground where Thunder Mountain is. I would never have guessed that's where it would be. Hate to see Thunder Mountain fall. It was always one of my fave rides. With that said, I can't wait until opening day for the new site. Gonna be fun.

Take a 360-Degree Look at Star Wars-Themed Land Groundbreaking at Disneyland Park


I like the 360 Tour. It's staged right now with all the Vehicles and Stormtroopers. I wonder if they will update the Tour has progress is made. Make sure to check the sky in the Tour for a couple of surprises.

The Mad Hatter Surprise

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mo83rqYoAeU


Today must be Johnny Depp day since he is popping up all over the news.Really didn't know where to put this. I guess you can call it a Prank and thus belongs in the Comedy thread. But since it takes place at Disneyland......

Disney Quietly Raises Theme Park Admission Prices Again


This is beyond ridiculous...it's f*cking lunacy. $124 for adults for one-day passes? What the f*ck! I'm anxiously awaiting Star Wars Land. But at those prices, I may never go, unless I can secure some free tickets like I use to. By the time SWL opens to the public, it wouldn't shock me one bit if ticket prices were closer to $150 by then.
