I do not recall any mention of "another place" other than the physical and the spiritual realm in Scripture. In regard to the spiritual, there are only two places mentioned, that I have read; hell and heaven.

1. The Garden of Eden is no more. Sin destroyed that place as it did the beauty and harmony that existed around the globe, in whatever form it had.
2. Possible, but remember, that Enoch and Elijah were sinners who were no less worthy of damnation. By God's determinate council and foreknowledge (predestination) they no different than any other believer, received saving grace and by the power of the Spirit, repented of their sins and believed in Christ, Who was to come. Though they can be seen as 'types and shadows' in regard to the final coming of Christ when those remaining on the earth will be raised, body and soul, to be with Christ, they do not represent Christ whose death and resurrection was forensic, a substitutionary atonement for the elect.
