Islands of Adventure

Welcome to Islands of Adventure.  The big green guy is back!

The new upgrades (including track) have made a big difference

At night the track literally glows.

Next door is Storm Force Accelatron.

Really enjoyed Doctor Doom's Fear Fall.  A very forceful S&S Space Shot.

One of the best rides in the park is Spider-Man.

The section has some great rides, but I think the environment pales in comparison to some of the newer sections of the park.

The next section is Toon Lagoon.

This area has some cool themeing.

The section only has water rides though.  It could really use a new attraction that is not water based.

The newest section is Skull Island.

It is home to Reign of Kong.  Riders board a very large jeep and then travel into a huge cavern where they face monsters and a huge animatronic Kong.

The next section is Jurassic Park

Inside the Visitor's Center (looks just like the movies)

They have some very fun photo ops

The main (adult) ride in the section is the River Adventure.

Moving into the Lost Continent section of the park.

Poseidon's Fury is the main attraction, which is a walk-thru show.

Outside the show arena - there is the Mystic Fountain which talks to and sprays guests.

Inside the arena is the Eighth Voyage of Sinbad stunt show.  It's pretty cheesy to be honest.

The final section of the park is Seuss Landing

This is One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish Blue Fish - and if you don't follow along to the song while you are riding, you will end up getting squirted.  You've been warned.

The main attraction in the area is the Caro-Seuss-el

This custom carousel features whimsical animals from the pages of Seuss's books.

There is also a dark ride in the area themed to the Cat in the Hat.

The main restaurant is Circus McGurkus Cafe Stoppendous.

The final attraction in the area is the High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride.

The train goes right through the Circus McGurkus.

The train goes over most of the section.

You can see almost everything from this ride.

A great day at Islands of Adventure.
