The calliope of progress

The Calliope of Progress is a darkride in Steamland Fun Center, that gives visitors a brief insight in the history of Steamland through a series of animatronics.

Bean and Alva Gunderson, who is posing as Gordie Stewson at the time, visit the attraction in "Steamland Confidential" after they spot the Arch-Druidess going in there. The attraction teaches Bean (and by extend the viewere) that the steam in Steamland comes from geothermal chambers underground. Early mankind used this steam rising from the ground to relax, until one day a monk got caught in on a steam outcropping and got killed by the hot steam, but his clothes where cleaned in the process, which gave people an idea of what steam could be used for. So a village was build near the outcroppings called "Dead Monksburg", which would eventually grow into Steamland.

The attraction also praises Alva for his part in developping Steamland; not surprising considering he is the main sponsor of the attraction.
