Of course, whether people believe me or not doesn't really matter to me.

Yes, I've been critical of this park since it's inception/announcement, and they haven't disappointed me since! lol

I haven't thought that much into it. The park being land locked is one thing the park hasn't done correct and not much can be done now. I do think your a bit over critical of Evermore. They aren't perfect but no park is. I have enjoyed my visits to Evermore.

I'm only critical because ever since it was announced there were, and still are, numerous red flags. Then, there is the raping and pillaging of antiquities from Europe for a bloody theme park, that I find morally reprehensible. I get it, here in America, we don't have many stone structures that date to the 17th century. It's just one of the many things we as Americans don't get. Maybe it's because one of my favorite, and most beautiful places in the whole world, is St. Patrick's Isle and Peel Castle on the Isle of Man, that dates back to the 11th century and was built by Vikings. To touch something that old, to feel it, is a spiritual experience that is difficult to describe, until you do. Then, to see what vandals and selfish, ignorant people, have done to parts of it, to other monuments and places, is infuriating to say the least.

To put it into local terms people in Utah might relate to. Let's say that after the original Najvoo Temple was burned down, and Mormons driven out, that that original surviving structure was sold to some atheists, moved to Las Vegas, and turned into an adult book/video store. How would that feel?

Up by Granite Park the LDS church sold off the old church the pioneers who built the SLC temple went to, an artist bought it and now his son owns it and has a little paid haunt there during Halloween. It's pretty cool. I've never heard a single complaint.

The idea of Europe being ravaged of its cultural identity by a little theme park in Utah cracks me up. Oh what will the British Museum ever do?!?!? LMAO

Is the spiel that you hear while riding the train recorded, or is it said while someone is driving the train?

Also, is the raping and pillaging of Europe part of the interactive experience? Asking for a friend.

It was the town executioner giving the spiel while the engineer was driving. Two people can sit in the engine. If you answer his question at the end correctly I think he'll give you some gold. I didn't actually get the normal park experience on this visit so it's hard for me to say how much pillaging is going on. I think there was at least a little bit.

Ok. I was curious if someone was actually talking, so that is good to know. Thanks. Smile

Gotta collect the gold. Completing the quests is the best part of going to evermore.
