Own a little piece of the country you love, the United States of America.  Invest to
build a journey across the USA Canada in miniature, the next big attraction in America!

America is a vast country of physical and cultural diversity. So vast that some would say it's impossible to experience in a lifetime. Our vision is to bring all of the United States just a little bit closer, to build a place where people can see and experience our glorious country in all its splendor, in an afternoon.

A miniature adventure from coast to coast to coast!

To be located in Greenville, SC and open in 2019, the Miniature World Of Trains (TM) is a unique, compelling in-door theme park attraction that taps into the universal fascination we have with miniaturizing our known world, and celebrates the beauty and culture of this great country. It will be an immersive journey of discovery through a miniaturized America.

What we've built so far

At the Miniature World of Trains, we will be building a unique and compelling experience for our guests that is unlike anything they have ever seen. We are combining the 19th century crafts of model railways, dollhouse-making and model ship building with the 21st century technologies of miniature lighting, video projection, 3D printing and augmented reality.

The founder of the Miniature World of Trains have established a talented team of model makers and miniature world builders to build the non profit test BETA version in 2013 , and with an non profit investment $500K and 75,000 hours to create a BETA site of three initial destinations, Greenburg
(TM) a fictional city in South Carolina, City of Industry (TM) South Carolina and the Rocky Mountains.. This BETA test was successful and now it is time to move forward with a larger venue.

Our Interstate 85 will be the busiest in the miniature world and in fact is the busiest in the real world Southeast Corridor, with custom autonomous car control system of self-driving cars zipping past each other.

Up until 2015 we where just getting started. Now we have found land to build the permanent version of the Miniature World of Trains. Now, we're just getting started again to build a new. We're building United States from coast to coast to coast following the path of the Continental Railroad from the east coast to the west coast. And we're recruiting builders who share our passion for the United States and that to own a little piece of the country they love.

The Attractions Market - It's All About The Experience

Business is booming in Greenville, SC, a growing market of millions of tourists and 2.5 million residents in the Upstate of South Carolina and centrally located between Atlanta GA, Charlotte and Asheville, NC as well as Columbia, SC. Greenville, SC is the center of this tourist bulls eye with all cities about a 1.5 hour drive from each city.

Starting with PHASE I with the growing fictional city of Greenburg
(TM), SC featuring highlights from the real cities of Greenville and Spartanburg, SC, Folkston Funnel, Charleston, SC and the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Saluda Grade people will be flocking to attractions that offer immersive hands-on experiences such as the Miniature World Of Trains.

Proof of Concept - Highly Rated Attractions

Our first miniature world proof of concept is Miniatur Wunderland, a 70,000 square foot indoor miniature world, opened in Hamburg, Germany, in 2001, which attracted 1.3M visitors in 2016. Miniatur Wunderland has become the #1 rated "thing to do" on TripAdvisor in all of Germany - you can google it - and was just named the #1 tourist attraction in Germany in a survey completed by Tourism Germany of over 16,000 respondents. Comments on TripAdvisor range from "You will fall in love with it. I am sure about it!" to "This will blow your mind!".

Inspired by the launch of Miniatur Wunderland, a number of other successful indoor miniature world attractions have opened across Europe, including Grand Market Russia in St. Petersburg, Russia in 2012, which has a stellar 4.8/5.0 rating on TripAdvisor and Mini-World Lyon in Lyon France, in 2016, which attracted 200,000 visitors in its first year.

The Math - Small is Big

The math in the attractions industry is a straight forward formula......

We're creating an immersive experience that will attract tourists and residents, adults and children, business people and students alike. We will open with 1 region to explore, in one Greenville, SC location. And we'll launch a new destination every other year, to attract up to 500,000 visitors per year. Our revenue will come from admissions, food and beverage, 3D printed and miniature gifts, and corporate and social events. This is a place where people will want to celebrate special occasions.

The BETA Test version in downtown generated 40,000 visitors from around the world in its last year of operation from July 2014-2015. This was done with very little advertising and the lack of parking in the downtown Greenville Falls Park Area of the West End.

Imagine what could have been down with parking in the area!

Small World, Big Media

The Miniature World Of Trains BETA Test has generated numerous media broadcast and media. And this will continue as the Miniature World of Trains LLC (MWOTSC) moves forward.
