This has to be one of the nicest shots I have gotten so far. In it you can see all the way around the lagoon of Universal's Islands of Adventure Theme Park in Orlando, Fl. It was taken from the highest level of 'The Olive', which is part of the Popeye raging river ride. If you look down you will see segments of the rafts going by. Too bad I couldn't get a whole tube in since they moved by before the columns were shot. Anyway, starting at the left and moving right: First is a bit of the Jurassic Park themed area. The crane in the background and the grey wall are there for the new Harry Potter area that is being built and is supposed to open later in 2010. Given the amazing work done in the rest of the park, I can't wait to see what the new area holds, it is bound to be amazing! Next is the 'Lost Continent section of the park where you can see the water side of the Mythos Restaurant. Kind of behind it you can see another crane and the beginnings of a new roller coaster. The new coaster is actually in the Universal Studios Theme Park next door. To the left of that is Seuss Landing, a whimsical tribute to the renowned childrens author. Then comes Marvel Super Hero Island where you can see the green Hulk Roller Coaster and the twin towers of Dr. Doom's Fear Fall. It took a while to get that section since I had to wait for the coaster cars and the tower rides to launch, but it turned out pretty well I think. You can even see some kid screaming as Dr. Doom extracts fear so he can defeat the Fantastic Four. Of all the parks in the Orlando area, Islands of Adventure is my favorite adreneline park. The coasters are super fun, the attractions are amazing in their clever use of technology and the design of the themed areas should win multiple awards. A great park to fill a day with!
