  • Favourite area in Islands of Adventure

    Hi everyone,
    Just wanted to start up a discussion.
    Other than the Wizarding World, which area is your favourite area in Islands of Adventure?
    Mine is Marvel Superhero Island. I just live the atmosphere and the music and it takes on a whole other atmosphere once the sun goes down.
    An honourable mention to Port of Entry.

    This is tough, because IOA is so incredible. Marvel Super Hero Island is so incredible, and it really is a different city from Day vs Night. Jurassic Park is so lush and dense, and really makes you feel like you are in a Jungle!

    But... I am going to have to say the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. There is simply no other place like it!

      Due to scale and theme, I'd have to say that Lost continent is my favorite

              They're all pretty incredible but I'd have to say its a toss up between Toon Lagoon with it's hidden trails by Me Ship Olive and JP with it's lush landscaping and its beautiful view from the balcony overlooking the lagoon.
              Current coaster count: 179
              100th coaster: Phantom's Revenge at Kennywood
              150th coaster: Intimidator at Carowinds
              last new park addition: Six Flags Great America

                I love WWoHP, but JP narrowly edges it out for me. The naked coasters in WWoHP are more visually intrusive than the pterodactyl flyers to me, and this is what give JP the edge. Though it could use another attraction...
                Disneyland Wooooh!

                  Port of Entry. I've got a lot of issues with how it is operated (UniExpress/meal plan ads plastered everywhere, merchandise racks pushed out in the street, 3rd party mall vendor, a digital wait-time display that should be analog, etc.), but on an art-architecture-design basis, it's one of my favorite themed areas on the planet.

                    Ill agree with randysavage, an awesome area which gets overlooked so much. The music is awesome and the area prepares you for what, in my opinion, us one of the most well themed parks in the world.

                      Tough one, I like most of them for different reasons.
                      Port of Entry is great (when you get past the annoying photographers), well themed with great music, both as you come in (really gets you going for the day) and as your leaving.
                      Marvel Super Hero, well themed but the music is way too loud, it suits the theming but I cant put up with it for too long, 2nd best ride in the park with Spiderman though.
                      Toon Lagoon is least fave, but only because I'm not a water ride person.
                      JP, theming is outstanding (still get a kick walking through those archways) but there is nothing to do, the river ride is ok, but most of it seems a real wasted opportunity, hopefully the rumours of some major 'refurb' on the area are true.
                      Lost Continent I don't think of as an area anymore but P.Fury is one of the best themed attractions anywhere, period.
                      Seuss, lots of great theming and loads of fun but that music sticks with you way too long after you leave...

                      Best area is definitely WWOHP but Marvel Super Hero would probably be my second choice.

                        Marvel Super Hero Island, but WWOHP is just amazing!
                        The new Star Wars plot summery:

                        Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

                        Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

                        Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

                          This is a tough one. i've said on many occasions that Port of Entry is the best "Main Street" in any theme park in America. Jurassic Park may be the most "immersive" of any environment there because its so overwhelming. Its the only island I can get "lost" in. However, I think Seuss Landing may be my overall favorite. The colors. The design. The music.
