Magical Destination for Halloween: The RMK Gothic Ghost Academy

Halloween seaons brings it a time to showcase magic and the supernatural in Second Life.  I will be featuring Halloween Destinations here all this week. The RMK Magic Gothic Ghost Academy is currently a recommended Second Life Destination, and is recommended for a visit.

One of the best parts of  Ghost Academy is the animated entrance skybox. A full moving GIF is included as the last photograph of this post. A lightning storm rages as poltergeists move books and other items in a magical tempest.

Entrance Skybox of the Ghost Academy
Once you jump down to the ground level, you will find a very atmospheric shopping district, and a school for the magical arts. Highly recommended for Harry Potter fans, and other interested in wizardry.

To visit (note:  entrance is a skybox, the destination in on ground level).
