Not Official by Atari yet! Note: this is not an official Atari post nor is it sanctioned by Atari. Its a theoretical look at the prospective scenery pack only.

Okay...here is a roadmap if I was making it for Retro. Retro should incorporate several things. It could include themes from the Victorian era to the 1950's Midway. Retro is a very broad term. So lets look at what we can have in this expansion pack. OK lets break down the themed sections for Retro.

Victorian Era 1890 to 1919:

This scenery pack would include the scenery to make a haunted mansion like the big haunted mansion at Disneyland. Animatronics scary scenery to go with this. Additional Pirates scenery too. Turn of the century 1900 scenery.

Rides include Horseless Carriage Darkride scenery and car track ride.
Horse and buggy ride.
Trackless Steamcar ride for Main Street scenario. (Note its an invisible track)
Trolley Cable Car, trackless for a Main Street. (Note its an invisible track)
Looff Grand Carousel
A large Theater and Dinner Restaurant Combo. This would combine a preselected ride and restaurant as a first that mass seats peeps. It would be similar to the 3D theater where the peeps go inside and stay at will. The number of peeps inducted on this ride could be quite large.
A Sternwheeler Riverboat ride that is a scenic ride not a ferry.
Victorian Scenery. Pack include mansion scenery and many brick walls and roofs. Balconies.


Roarin' 20's:

Additional Vendor Highlights:

Traditional Generic Food Vendor Booth. (Note, this can be assigned any goods and be incorporated into a building structure)

Sit-In Restaurant Generic. This attraction vendor combo allows peeps to sit inside at tables and or act as a general store stocking many items. The peep count inside this generic structure would allow about 100 peeps at a time.

Additional Scenery: 1930's- 1940's Retro Art Deco Walls, Roofs and Balcony and decorations.



Major Pack Highlights:

Adds Darkness within enclosed structures by default.

These essential highlights are a solid roadmap for successes for a new Retro Expansion Pack. The time to complete this expansion pack would be about 1 year or less. It depends how many resources are funded for the expansion pack.
