A dream holiday destination with a secret End-ing!
We sat down for a little chat with Sophie over at Mojang to discuss what sort of adventures you can get up to at our Holiday Resort, the 'dream destination' in Minecraft! If you want to read the full article Q&A, please head on over to Minecraft's news page, or click here. See below for some of the best excerpts.
"Become a VIP and explore this enormous, tropical five-star map, complete with a marina, a golf course, luxury villas, ferris wheel, and more! In fact, there is so much to do, see and explore in this tropical paradise that I didn’t know where to start. That’s why I asked Cal from CrackedCubes for some tips!"
My personal favourite is the seaplane race, or the drop tower! The drop tower was the most fun to create. It’s designed to give the player the thrill of going up and down in a drop tower (otherwise known as a big drop, or a gravity dropper). Of course, if you spend too much time on it you might find yourself hindered by a certain, unique effect… But the point of having so many interactive activities is that the player gets to choose what they think is the best thing to enjoy in the map!
"After all those adrenaline-pumping activities, I think we deserve a break. This is a VIP Holiday Resort, after all! What do you recommend, Cal?"
Well, you could could spend the night as a VIP, drive a golf cart to the main hotel for food, take a plunge in the waterpark rapids, grab some lunch, beat your friends at a few holes of mini-golf, and then play against NPCs in the bumper cart track! The experiences are very varied, depending on what the player wants to do at any particular moment. Plus, this world does still facilitate the existing and very treasured Minecraft experience... so if you want to use the golf cart to drive across the End, then you can so long as you take it with you through the portal!

If you place a pumpkin on top of two snow blocks, you will spawn a Snow Golem (snowman). Perfect to decorate your winter base with!
