Great! Thankyou for this!

It couldn't have come at a better time; I'm working on developing a dark ride for a project and I'm at the concept stage. I have a rough idea of my theming (late Victorian/steampunk) and now know what to do next!

I have also been lurking on the haunted attraction idea topic and trying to soak up all the tips about storyline development. This forum is wonderful! Very Happy

I'm not very good at explaining things but...

Steampunk is a fantasy genre based on the premise of what would have happened had we not utilised electricity to run machinery but steampower instead. It's often set in the late Victorian era but involves fantastic technological devices (think HG Wells and Jules Verne).

Victorian Steampunk is one of my favorite styles... I would love to design something in that style!

There is other stuff within the category of steampunk... but I hope that helps to start to get an idea... Personally, I think it's pretty fantastic (but then, I love old machines anyhow).
