It was made out of the old Storytown Village theme park. Ned made this park in memory of Maude. Strange things began to happen when folk stood in front of the Maude statue, as they were seeing their own version of Heaven.
It was later revealed there was a severe gas leak, and orphans tried to light a candle under the statue. Homer and Ned pushed the orphans out of the way, causing a major scandal, and Praiseland was shut down. “Praiseland” is a parody of Graceland, Elvis Presley’s mansion in Memphis, TN.
It later appeared in The Simpsons: Tapped Out as part of the "Praiseland" promotion the game had during the Homerpalooza 2017 event.
