Photo TR: Islands Of Adventure/Universal 05/08

Postby KrakenKing » Wed May 09, 2007 7:45 pm

So yesterday Robbie and I were sitting around his room bored... he had just gotten home from class and I had just woken up (This was around noon). I said "Man, I wish I had my Universal Pass still" his had just expired as well, so we had a great idea... lets renew! We hopped online and ordered our tickets, printed out the confirmations and headed to the park.

The park itself was absolutely dead! The longest we had to wait was 15min for the front row of Dueling Dragons Ice. What a great day to go.

Here's the photos:

Hello IoA... I haven't seen you in about half a year. Good to be back!

Girl: "Can I take your picture?"
Me: "I already have my camera, thanks though"
Girl: "Can you take my picture?"
Me: "Sure!"
DSC00773.jpg
Robbie getting his pass from the unresponsive machines... you had to basically punch the letters to get them to work!
DSC00775.jpg
Off we go to get our pictures taken... but wait... it's closed!?
DSC00774.jpg
So, these are our tickets!? Cheap!

Speaking of being cheap... Flexpay Lol!
DSC00776.jpg
Hi Hulk! Long time no see!
DSC00777.jpg
Signature shot!
DSC00833.jpg
Yay! 10 minutes!
DSC00781.jpg
Or not even... not even 10min for the front row!
DSC00783.jpg
But yeah, it was still as boring as I remembered! Argh!
DSC00786.jpg
I've never eaten here, even though I've been to this park a bazillion times
DSC00834.jpg
On to Dueling Dragons and omg!? A 10min wait!
DSC00788.jpg
But we still skip some of it and use the hidden stairway to heaven...

:-P

Dueling Dragons: Hungarian Horntail

The Hungarian Horntail side and the Chinese Fireball side dueling it out!

Hey... Harry Potter is comming, right!?
DSC00791.jpg
Harry Potter fans rejoice!
DSC00837.jpg
Hmm, to the Flying Firenze? Or to Jurassic Park?
DSC00793.jpg
I've had enough Harry Potter. I'll go to Jurassic Park.
DSC00794.jpg
Me: "I used to go in there all the time and steal pickles" (Hi Julie!)

Robbie: "Oh, is that how you lost your gag reflex?"
DSC00795.jpg
Squinty face in response to what he said.
DSC00796.jpg
Hi River Adventure!
DSC00797.jpg
Hmm, trash bag poncho... And I thought I was cheap!

You don't even get that wet on the ride!
DSC00800.jpg
Time, the ever flowing river, come with us now, to a time before man, when the river flowed through a newborn world, and giants walked the earth. Welcome to Jurassic Park! (OMG Working doors!)
DSC00801.jpg
Why the sad faces?
DSC00802.jpg
We got wet! WTF!?
DSC00804.jpg
An unacceptable amount of wetness...
DSC00805.jpg
A VERY unacceptable amount of wetness!
DSC00806.jpg
We decided to go on Spiderman, you know, since the 3rd movie just came out and all...
DSC00807.jpg
Yay for more 10min waits!
DSC00808.jpg
And just cause we could, we rode this POS...
DSC00809.jpg
With no wait!
DSC00839.jpg
Since we had time, we rode Hulk again, 10min wait still!
DSC00811.jpg
Hello again signature shots!
DSC00814.jpg
Exit. Yup.
DSC00815.jpg
We decided to meander over to USF to ride a few rides as well. Mummy with a 30min wait!? Yay single riders!
DSC00816.jpg
Speaking of Single Riders: Nerdiest coaster shirt ever!

I love it!
DSC00817.jpg
After the Mummy we went through the arcade, who do we see!?
DSC00819.jpg
My friend Maria. "Hi Maria!"
DSC00820.jpg
Robbie's Squinty face for making him play DDR in the arcade.
DSC00821.jpg
My guess was that 50% of the people in the park were in line for Mummy.
DSC00823.jpg
Fish!
DSC00840.jpg
Fish ride had a 5 minute wait, hurray!
DSC00841.jpg
Hi MIB! Sadly, I didn't get max score on you this time...
DSC00826.jpg
Me: "Hey, before we go, do you wanna ride ET really quick?"

Robbie: "Uh, yeahhhhh!"
DSC00827.jpg
I forgot how totally awesome the queue line is for this ride!
DSC00822.jpg
Awww, it's time for us to leave >.<

End.

Yeah. I wish there was video footage of me sucking DDR. Squinty face deserved.

The weather was awesome and the city wasn't covered in a giant smoke cloud like we were today, which was nice.
