The Tea Monologues | Islands of Adventure

Hello from Islands of Adventure!

We have finally come to my final post of my Florida 2015 trip.

The adventure begins (says the rock at the start) with The Incredible Hulk Coaster.

Fun fact: the coaster has currently been completely dismantled for refurbishment. You can now see the newly released photos here.

Islands of Adventure has the same charm as Universal Studios, but with the added thrill of some of the rides.

For the first time in a long time, the Green Goblin was running around the Marvel section. Unfortunately, this was the only character we ran in to in comparison to a few years ago when the Marvel Universe was out in force.

Toon Lagoon is home to some very interesting looking parts. This is a definite way of getting drenched if you have untrustworthy family members.

If you find anyone who comes off this ride dry then please ask them to tell me how! I threw my poncho on, because from experience I am aware of how wet you get on this ride. Poncho aside, I got soaked. I can tell you, although it was scorchingly hot, walking around with a wet bum is not fun.

Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls is a great ride, especially in the Florida heat. Unfortunately I didn't manage to get on it this time because the queues were ridiculous. 

Jurassic Park is my favourite area of Islands of Adventure. The ride is awesome, and the new Raptor Encounter is hilarious! 

I am looking forward to Skull Island: Reign of Kong being opened right opposite Jurassic Park sometime this year.

Poseidon's Fury is a walk-through we have generally loved for years. The whole thing seems a bit dated now, and the water tunnel didn't work!

Although, this is a quality area for theming. 

Seuss Landing is obviously aimed at smaller visitors, but being a big kid, I enjoy this area a lot.

To come full circle is the Spider-Man ride. I was completely and utterly blown away by this ride, and not just because I am a huge Spider-Man fan!

The whole thing was completely top notch and I cannot fault it in any way!

So for now, that is the last of my Florida posts.

I can now confirm that coming next Halloween will be Florida In Motion, so you can all look forward to that!

Thank you for reading, and I will see you all again real soon!
