Today's update: Florida's Fantasy Isles

I never got a chance to visit Florida's Fantasy Isles. This small children's theme park was located in Ft. Myers. I'm not sure when it closed. The 2 brochures I have of the park don't have dates on them, but I estimate that both are from the early-mid 80's. Looks like the park had half a dozen standard kids rides. Did any of my fellow TPR members ever visit this place? If you did, please share with us your memories. Thanks!

Wow! That is the shortest train I have seen at any park anywhere! One car!
Of the road, but still in a truck...By the way, that's my dog Millie (named after Millennium Force) over there to the left!

WOW! Busch really upgrades their parks over the years. Sea World and Busch Gardens Tampa look like completely different parks compared to the 70's and 80's.

This stuff is all gold, and not just for the amusement park nostalgia factor; I love the "new wave" 80s-style graphics on the early Adventure Island brochures: Hot Pink and Neon Blue! Drop Shadows! Lines in the Background! Everything on an Angle! Classic...

Hello Friends, after a long three-year hiatus, Eric's Brochure Kingdom has finally returned! Today's update continues to look at Sea World Orlando through the end of the 1980's. Highlighted in today's update is the brand new Penguin Encounter that opened in 1988. Figured it is an appropriate time to reminisce, as Antartica: Empire of the Penguins will soon be opening in it's place in a month. Enjoy!
