As I searched for Wonderland adventures in the Destination guide, I reflected how I should reread those popular tales of Alice. I was ready for an adventure and to see how the imagination of SL builders portrayed and bought Carroll's story to life.
My first trek was to Dysphoria This sim has been around for a few years, so I was curious to see what I would find. The atmosphere is dark and brooding when you first step up to the Rabbit Hole.
I was excited to take the leap into the rabbit hole. The plunge down to the bottom was exhilarating.
The little trip is not too long and you don't have to sit....you just walk right into the hole! That little feature may seem small, but you really don't need any animations to stumble into a hole!
My mind smiled with reflections of all my childhood memories. I could almost smell the wonderful pages of the book as I looked around. But...and oh so sadly, there is a fee to explore further. A little more than $1.00 in RL, the sim charges $200L to join the group Dysphoria. Because I wanted to give this sim a fair shake and explore the area, I did pay the join fee. Now with that done, I crawled into the little door that would lead me to another dimension!
This sim grew into a heavily wooded and dark atmosphere immediately. I was alarmed but inquisitive to see how this creator interpreted Carroll's world. Although dark and gloomy, the sim was done up with great colors and a few highlights of animate objects. Right away I stumbled upon the Cheshire cat grinning at me from afar.
So, I teleported to the next sim that promised me an adventure similar to Alice, and it did not disappoint!
Enchanted Alice offered that same little hole with a sit function to jump into, which was a bit clunky. The animation took a little start and then I was dropped down the rabbit hole!
This room was planned for fun and guess what? There was no entrance fee!
So, where to start?! The sim was magnificent! It represented everything and more that I recalled from the story! I felt like Alice: startled, amused, delighted, and awed all at the same time. The Madhatter certainly planned a grand party! Each little world showed me new adventures. The sim was crafted with the skill of a designer that really loved Carroll's work and wanted to give the SL community something to enjoy. The scenarios were fun and easy to explore and the transitions from one to another were flawless.
I had fun wandering the black and white checkered world of Alice and getting surprised by a squid monster that trumped the Jabberwocky! Just as I thought my senses were gathered, this crazy sim would teleport me to yet another grand part to walk, stumble, dance, run, and touch everything around me. The worlds provided spacious places to play, pose and enjoy with a friend!
This sim has a complete thumbs up compared to my first search for Alice and her cohorts. I think the only people I didn't meet up with was TweedleDee and TweedleDum, but then that was "Through The Looking Glass!" Hmmm, I bet the Madhatter is hard at work creating the next big adventure for that one! I'll most certainly be back to find out! OHH, I almost forgot to say, that there are plenty of places and things to sit on...
Here are some more exploration picks I collected while having fun in the land of Enchanted Alice.
