Next up, we have LEP's answer to Britannia - Americana:
Now, after much searching for American architecture (which was harder than I thought) I have concluded that the country has no 'one' distinctive look, and went with a 'melting pot' of different architectural styles found around the country, like a mix of midwest/main street along the main corridor/parade route:
The majority of the area is themed to that of a small colonial town with hints of art deco and mission revival, as seen below.
Seen in that pic is America! in SurroundSight
(a variation of CircleVision) that gives a whirlwind tour through the United States, its cities, its people, and its landscapes. 23 minutes in length, this attraction pretty much serves the same purpose as the one in Britannia back in the States
The next of three attractions in this relatively small area is the Great American Road Trip
. Ride a sports car on a 'road trip' through this light-hearted dark ride recreating in a stylized way major towns and landmarks of the United States. Uses blacklighting heavily:
Finally, we have the thrill ride for the area - Radio Bay Cab
(working title) - an enclosed indoor launch coaster akin to Rock 'n Roller Coaster. The exterior takes inspiration from bits and pieces of San Francisco (complete with a mural of the city on the outside queue). The inside queue, however, recreates San Francisco International Airport. You then take a taxi from the airport to the Financial District (SanFran's Downtown). The driver says he'll get you there as fast as possible (for free, even), turns on the radio and you zoom past (and into, with appropriate breaking of glass) various landmarks (even barely dodging a BART train at one point). All the while the cars will blast music relating to California (strategically mixed to match the track elements), which (depending on your taxi) will vary from something as classic as Beach Boys and/or (covers of) Folk to something as modern as Katy Perry.
If you want a layout pic, I'll do that later (as I failed to take a pic around that time). Though, you may take a look at the same ride (albeit slightly laid out differently) here
Okay, half the park done, 3 more areas left to complete:
