The Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of Second Life

The Great Wall of Second Life

Can you see me?  I’m standing next to the stairs on the right side.  I visited the Great Wall of China, as re-created in Second Life after finding it listed on the Second Life Wikia.  The scale is simple gargantuan and you get a real sense of the size as you walk up the stairs and along the top side.  It is hollow inside, which is a little disorienting, especially as you can accidentally fall through in some places. It was created by Linden Labs, and crosses several sims.  The individual owners of the sims use the wall in different, and sometimes startling ways, such as this semi dealership.

Some of the other stops along the way, while not pornographic, are a little risque.  Overall, it’s an interesting effort to recreate a significant cultural landmark in Second Life, and the way that other residents have repurposed this space adds an interesting dimension to the experience.

Here’s a slurl to the Jubata entrance:
