I rode the rides, got lost in the mazes, watched the movies, read the notecards, horded the freebies, got stuck in the sticky spots, climbed the stairs, viewed the posters, hopped on the pods, and now the time has come! SL11B opens today and I’ve compiled a list of my favorite exhibits.
First, of course, I gotta make a shameless plug and invite you to see my own exhibit: Philomenaville Welcomes You to the New Century. Imagine it’s a hundred years and change ago, and the wonders of the 20th century are on display at the World’s Fair, and you’ll have some idea what we’re going for. While you’re there pick up our SL11Big Hunt gift as well as a free painting from Elica Bowenford.
Now then! On to the other exhibits!
- SL11B Beguile #10
Drax Files fans will immediately recognize the name Barbie Alchemi. This drive-in movie theater presents the most-watched episode of Drax Files, Creations for Parkinsons, a must-see for anyone who questions the value of Second Life.

3D Republic has a lovely garden. Unfinished at the time I snooped, but definitely a place worth a visit.
- SL11B Spellbound #19
Renaissance Island presents a hedge maze with a twist: explore the maze to get freebies and to collect intelligence on a mission for Lord Lagswell. A few unfinished spots at time of snooping but that’s to be expected. Fun, engaging, and good freebies.
