TERRA Phase One
The TERRA Project - Phase 1
Welcome to TERRA! Adventure Awaits!
Welcome to a world quite unlike our own. A world full of wonder and adventure just waiting for you to go and discover. Airships and submarines replace cars and planes in a place that magic is not a myth, but an everyday occurrence. All this powered by the discovery of the legendary ether, Aeris. A 'fifth element', higher than earth, wind, water and fire, Aeris can be harnessed for all sorts of unbelievable experiences.
TERRA is a brand new fully immersive theme park experience designed for the young and old alike. Become the Pioneers of the New World and set off on your adventure of discovery in the first three themed areas.
ENTRANCE PLAZA & PALACE HOTEL
As you journey to the entrance, and go through the turnstiles, you come face to face with the TERRA Globe and your first view of the park. Surrounding the Plaza you will find the Annual Pass processing centre, a shop, and the Park entrance to the Palace Hotel.
Moving past this you travel over the Portal Bridge and arrive at the Entrance gates, and the first themed land.
Welcome to the hub of the New World, a busy and bustling bazar, fortress town and SkyPort. Starting in Fountain Square, you can experience Port Trading, the park mega shop that caters to all souvenir needs, the Cheeky Monkey Pub and Restaurant, and the Grand Hall Customer Services building. From here to the left, you can experience the first attraction "The Navigator". Travel on a multisensory experience through space and time led by your crazy scientist tour guide!
To the right, you have the Market Bazar, where you can barter for any number of relics from all over the world. Travel down the the waterport and hop aboard one of the FERRYBOAT RIVER STEAMERS that circumnavigate the world. Or if you're looking for thrills then head to the centrepiece attraction of the area, and park; AERIS.
AERIS is a high speed 'Mega-Lite' rollercoaster created by the Swiss Company Intamin AG. Featuring high speed turns, extreme airtime and a huge number of near misses as you speed in and around the town on your mecha-vehicle. Moving out of the town to the North, the land becomes an arid wasteland full of natural rock formations and monuments.
The Wild Canyon territory is home to the hardy and brave people who harvest the area of its rich resources while battling the elements. Their story is told in the CAVE IN! dark ride, as you travel underground to prevent disaster in this thrilling and interactive ride through the Aeris Mines.
See what happens when the weather attacks in CYCLONE, a twistingly good family ride. For the hungry ones, why not visit TACO THE TOWN, for authentic Mexican cuisine served with a side of fresh puns!
From here you will be able to see the Lightning Mesa Tower, and the CANYON RIVER EXPEDITION. Join the expedition to traveling the river caves, and up the lightning mesa, just be careful when coming across any whirlpools and sudden watery drops in this exciting river rapids ride!
Moving on through the caves that litter the canyon and out the other side, you will come across a very different landscape!
FUTURE CITY ELYSIUM
Welcome to Elysium, an unimaginable city built on the top of a plateau and surrounded by raging waterfalls. This city thrived in the early days of the new world, and became the monument to technology and protection over the rest of Terra during the dark times. Elysium is home to some of the smartest researchers and warriors working to protect and unite Terra.
The centrepiece of the area is ELYSIUM: BLADE RIDER, a launched inverted Rollercoasters from Swiss experts Bolliger & Mabillard. Here you can take on the role of a Blade Rider cadet pilot, training to fly through a series of 7 inversions, through underwater tunnels, tight helixes and over buildings after being launched out of the Blade Cannon!
From here you can also enrol in TERRANAUTS, to become a space pilot and visit exciting new worlds in this thrilling simulator ride. Alternatively visit the STARBITES restaurant for a wide range of food.
The Elysium Plateau overlooks the expansion site for the next thrilling new area of the park, THE BADLANDS, to be completed in the next update and further adding to the narrative of TERRA.
