Well if the park was in Paris...when in Rome.

That's what this is all about though right? I don't suggest accurate scale, but these are exactly the places where you find adventure! The unknown should be represented from every continent, animals to foliage. Personally The Atomic Cafe can be the "North American Oasis" a marked difference from the Marhala Bar or another North African Oasis...making both unique and attractive for different reasons.

I agree you have to get lost in a sense, but money makes the world go round and you NEED funds to travel. In any event I think you need a center for civilization and education. I think you have to celebrate history and along with South American, African, Asian temples there has to be the European Temple which to say is a gothic Church and from North America the Ivy League College.

Taking your lead, I think having a visible peak that is impossible to get to holds some promise.
