The other week a video went a bit viral amongst the Efteling fan base showing off a scale (WORKING) model of Fata Morgana, a dark ride based in the park. It has so far taken the guy 4 years to build and it looks absolutely fantastic and exactly like the real thing. The video is below...

Have you seen any other scale models of park attractions that are extremely well done?

While not spectacular, Cedar Point has scale models of Blue Streak and Mean Streak in their little history thing.. I think.. someone verify.
 
At Hollywood Studios, in One Man's Dream, they have a scale model of The Great Movie Ride! showing off all of the show scenes. At DCA they also had a model of Radiator Springs for the Blue Cellar preview.

I believe at one point SFMM had turned their observation deck into a "musuem" and had models of some of the rides, past and present, up there.

Yup. In the "Town Hall," back in Frontier Town, is an entire museum dedicated to old CP memorabilia. It's actually a pretty good collection.

Included are scale models of Blue Streak, Mean Streak, and the old White Water Landings flume ride. Mean Streak's model is the most impressive.

^I remember checking those out during Coastermania with Snoo, before we found a quiet corner & took a long nap.

SFGA has a scale model from the Marriott days in a gift shop near the gate. Not a super detailed model but kind of cool because of the history.

In Hotel Colloseo at Europa Park they had a scale model of Wodan in the middle of the foyer which was pretty amazing

I just remembered, for Diamondback's announcement, Kings Island brought in Coaster Dynamix to create a model of the ride.

The queue for that weird Europa Park Advert: The Ride thing had a couple of models. I remember it had Euro Sat, but can't remember any others, or if there actually were any others.

Lotte World has a model of Comet Express near the doors if you're heading out from the inside area to the Magic Island area. It's a crap model really, but it's good to get an idea of the size and layout of it.

I don't have any pictures because I don't care enough.

I took a photo of it, but wasn't going to post it because it's not "amazing" :p
