Description[]

Notable Locations[]

Blizzard Beach[]

Blizzard Beach was a Floridian beach at the base of Mt. Gushmore which was hit by a freak tropical snowstorm. Following this it was transformed into Florida's first ski-resort only for the Florida sun to melt the snow and ice, destroying this endeavour. After an alligator known as Ice Gator slid down one of the ski-hills like it was a water-slide, this lead the executives to re-structuring it to be a winter-activity themed beach resort.[1]

  • Meltaway Bay: Meltaway Bay is a waterbody at the foothills of Mount Gushmore, presumably being made from the run-off of the mountain's snow.
  • Mount Gushmore: Mount Gushmore is a Floridian mountain with a height of 90 feet. It was the peak primarily used for slope winter sports during the beach's time as a ski resort and also the slope which Ice Gator slid down, sparking the beach's time as a beach resort.

Diggs County[]

Diggs County is a county along the Floridian state-border which during the Cretaceous period held a large number of dinosaurs that were well preserved following the K-T Extinction Event. Millenia later in 1947, it would become a hot-spot for palaeontologist activity leading to the establishment of the Dino Institute.

  • DinoLand, U.S.A.: DinoLand, U.S.A was a roadside town along Route 498 which were serve as home of the Dino Institute. The town itself would turn into a dinosaur themed tourist trap to try and capitalize on the traffic brought by the Dino Institute. This town would also be one of the outposts for the group known as the Wilderness Explorers.

  • Chester & Hester's Dino-Rama: The Dino-Rama is a tourist-trap amusement-park which was founded by an old married couple named Chester & Hester who ran the town gas-station then began profiteering from dinosaur oriented tourism.[2] They were frugal in their business-dealings and made the park in a parking-lot and contained incredibly lacklustre attractions.
  • Cretaceous Trail: Cretaceous Trail is a nature trail outside of the Dino Institute which is home to Mesozoic plant-life and sculptures of different dinosaurs (albeit several are considerably outdated). It is run by the Dino Institute.
  • Dino Institute: The Dino Institute is a building which houses the prestigious organization of the same name. In-addition to making several notable discoveries in the field of archaeology, teamed up with the company ChronoTech to create the time-traveling CTX Time Rovers.
