    Toon Lagoon at Islands of Adventure - Pictures

    My picture threads consist of images I have taken that focus on the architecture, landscape architecture, planning, design, and theming of the facilities highlighted. They may also contain short descriptions and commentary, but will not focus on construction progress or special events or memorabilia or food selections or my traveling companions. Hopefully these threads are a good introduction for those who have not seen these places yet. All killer, no filler!

    Toon Lagoon at Islands of Adventure photographed in November 2008:
    Universal Orlando features two theme parks, one of which is the superbly themed and detailed Islands of Adventure, composed of 6 distinct areas around a central lake. Toon Lagoon is a chaotic blend of architecture and several attractions, rendered with appropriately cartoonish pizzazz to celebrate a large assortment of classic comic strip characters as well as some animated ones.

    Shopping and Dining Area:
    A village of clustered buildings serves as the center of this area, brimming with overscaled graphics and humor.























    Popeye and Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges:
    This rapids raft ride is an extensive adventure through a landscape of stylized flumes and sets.











    Me Ship, The Olive:
    Also part of the Popeye area is a play area on a boat which the raft ride circles.









    Wimpy's:
    More Popeye theming, this time a food location.



    Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls:
    The other large attraction in this area is also a water ride, in this case a flume ride with many interior scenes along the route which recounts the comic character's story, as well as a very scenic lagoon with a high-speed chute before splashdown.











    Enjoy!

    All of the shops are so colorful and happening, geomorph. Love your clever alter ego name as well! I've never seen pictures of these shops before. So awesome of you to think to share them. Do you have additional pix... I'm hooked.

    Great pics!!! I absolutely LOVE Islands of Adventure. Had one of the best "theme-park days" EVER at that park.

    Didn't see the Bilge Rat Barge and Rip Saw Falls ride pics until poured thru a again just now. Great crisp snapshots! How exciting these rides appear to be... I would feel as if i were actually riding thru a cartoon.
