Hey y'all,

I'm from Atlanta, and am working (writing for) an entrepreneur who is developing a new theme park, with phase 1 north of Atlanta, GA,which will have model trains, and other miniature moving attractions, based on parks like Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg, Germany.

It is called Mini America, and will feature famous American landmarks across the U.S. I just wanted to let you all know that the development is moving forward, and groundbreaking is planned for 2013. It will be a great park to visit right here in the U.S.A!

I definitely want to abide by all rules/regulations of this site, but also wanted to let you know of an up and coming attraction that you may be interested in.

An article about Eric (the entrepreneur), is here:

His website is here:

Please know this is not a direct solicitation, though he is looking for investors and manufacturers of products in America. I just wanted to send an FYI out there to all those who are fans of model trains.

Thanks for the reply, RW&C. I think it will be lots of fun!

If you ever find yourself on this side of the country in the future, look up Mini America. I think it is going to be a great attraction!
