Slow Monthly Updates....#TMNewSim Teaser













Hello Friends!

OK....it's been so oddly quite since my last post at the beginning of the new year.  

:: RECAP from January to Now...(April 2017) ::

January: Martijn and the team have been really busy with their personal lives where 'free time' in their schedule had made it difficult to make any new progress on simulation development.  

February: Martijn made some new development to the new 'upcoming' #HTML5 simulation but its not beta testing ready.   Progress has been made from the conceptual design phase to code programming. #TMNewSim

March: Martijn made a new version for back-end testing for the new #HTML5 simulation to version 1.0 . Previously it was only coding of the simulation foundation mechanics. #TMNewSim

April: Social media updated 'teaser' of the upcoming 'HTML5' #TMNewSim simulation for Themagical.  As you can see below image, many of our fans and community members have comments of what could be the next 'new' simulation for Themagical.

We 'thank you' to all our fans and community for playing our simulations!  It is all cause of you who make us keep the 'magic' and 'passion' to keep developing new simulations so you can relive the magic and memories.

Hello Friends,

It's been a busy December month for me personally at my job.  I'm sorry for the late posting due to that and the Christmas holiday break with my family.

:: HAPPY NEW YEAR : 2017 ! ::

Thank you all for your support and patience as we merge  'Ride Sims' simulations over to the Themagical's website.

On January 2, 2017, Disney's California Adventure Tower Of Terror ride attraction will be closing its elevator doors forever!  

Since its announcement back on July 2016, Marvel made a special announcement at a fan based Comic-Con about the replacement of The Twilight Zone Tower Of Terror ride attraction at Disney's California Adventure Park.  You can read that announcement by clicking here.

In place of this attraction will be an all-new ride attraction based off the popular movie 'Guardian of the Galaxy'.

Disney Parks made an announcement for those who want to 'drop by' for one last time before its closure called, 'Late Night Check Out' an experience in complete darkness!"

The Tower of Terror “Late Check-Out” is the opportunity to ride in “complete darkness” after sundown. “Complete darkness” is the ride is mostly the same as what you’re used to, with the exception of the visuals and some of the sound effects being turned off in the mirror and hallway scenes, and silence instead of machinery whirring during the actual drops. And yes, the doors still open at the top.

Guests visiting during the day / night could take pictures at a special photo-op at the 'Late Check-Out' by saying their last goodbye's to the ride attraction.

Happy Thanksgiving USA...Sims News, #TMNewSim, and more!


Hey Everyone!

We are celebrating today here in the "States" have the national holiday of Thanksgiving!
Ah...the second best time of the year to come together with family and friends over a delicious hot juicy turkey and all the fixings. I know this is my favorite time of holiday to enjoy delicious food and fellowship.

Even getting together for a meal is wonderful to enjoy and celebrate as one. Where ever you are at right now, think of things that you are thankful for this year. It's great to reflect on these things and as well to find ways to help others in need. Maybe even volunteering at a local soup kitchen to feed the homeless this holiday season and many other ways to help families who are in need of help to provide a hot meal this holiday and as well daily life.

As the following day after Thanksgiving, is a season where everybody goes shopping like a mad crazy person. This is known where stores around the nation sells items for real less prices and as well make great deals for certain hours of the day! This is called "Black Friday". 



Now for the past 5 years, box retail stores are now opening on 'Thanksgiving Day' by starting at 6pm that day.  This day is now being called 'Blue Thursday' due to the fact of how the stores are opening earlier. I'm not really pleased by how the stores are opening earlier, it kinda defeats the 'Black Friday' shopping specials.


Black Friday is a term where the day after thanksgiving, people will go to the stores very early early in the morning around 1am or so to buy items that are hot ticket items. Local stores like Best Buy, Walmart, Sears, etc... will sell certain products the night of black Friday, people who stand for hours before the store close, just to be the first one to get hands on a hot selling product. People usually shop for Christmas deals already and finding prices that they can afford since we are all still in the economy is weak. So hopefully, more revenue will help stores and as well the people who work there make a decent pay check this season.

::Fun Recaps::

A fun interview recap awhile back in 2009 with no other than Martijn Leseman (Founder/Webmaster of Themagical/Simulation Creator) !

Also early this year, I had the greatest pleasure of talking to Mike Fehnel. General Manager and V.P of Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom in Allentown, PA. Click here to read the article.

Ride Sims Special Announcement of 'Donating to Themagical'.  This new agreement was to receive Ride Sims simulations to be added to Themagical's simulation lineup. This agreement came right after their announcement of closure on August 21, 2016.  You can click here to read the announcement of Ride Sims. 

::#TMNewSim:: Beta News Updates 



Many users have been requesting information in relation to our 'NEW Upcoming Simulation' for Themagical.

We've been testing out a HTML5 version of a current simulation to see the results if it would run the same as our HTML5 Soarin simulation.

There's been some nice progress so far but its still not operational to be played as a simulation.  Graphic design overall is complete for the ride layout, development for the game hasn't been much progress.

Ride Sims simulations have been SLOWLY making progress moving over to Themagical's server side so it can work properly.  We are in touch with the team to make sure transition is smooth as possible so it won't ruin the magic for our guests users.

Keep your eyes peeled on our social media outlets to see new updates on our 'upcoming future simulation'. 

::Count Your Blessings::


For all of those who are visiting us here and as well who are members from the "States", the staff of 'Themagical' team wishes you and your families to have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving day!

Until then!
