Mythos at Islands of Adventure

© Copyright 2010 Tink *~*~*

The “Lost Continent” section of Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park has taken a hit to make way for the new “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” section. Casualties include:

  • The Flying Unicorn, a kiddie roller coaster, which has now been re-themed as Flight of the Hippogriff
  • The Enchanted Oak, a counter service restaurant that had the best ribs I’ve ever tasted on this entire planet, seems to have morphed into The Three Broomsticks – still counter service but with a decidedly English countryside twist to the menu
  • “Fire and Ice”, the feet-dangling-Erin-terrorizing double roller coaster, as been re-themed to reflect the Dragon Challenge in the Triwizard Tournament, an event around which Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was centered.

Still standing is the “Poseidon” themed section of the Lost Continent, including the award-winning Mythos restaurant. Inexplicably, I have always managed to miss dining at Mythos; one thing or another has prevented me from joining any of my friends and family there, thus far. So, if there is such a thing as a theme park “bucket list”, this would be on mine – lunch at Mythos. I have the feeling I’d better get to it sooner rather than later, before what remains of the Lost Continent becomes truly lost!

    It’s been so long since I visited a water amusement park! This looks pretty spectacular!

    How fun to have a season ticket to DisneyWorld! I’ve never thought about it being a place to hang out just any old time you want.

    I love that image, it is somewhere I would love to go, but I bet by the time I can afford flights and a ticket that I won’t be able to have lunch at Mythos!

    I’m looking forward to staying a month or so in Florida in 2012 and finally getting to Universal/IOA then.

    PS: Enjoying more words with the pictures. :)
