The Lost Continent is a timeless land of ancient myths and legends; on Islands of Adventure you shriek in fear and delight on the world’s first inverted dueling roller coasters soaring to 125 feet, missing each other by inches.
Hear the roar and feel the ground shake with the rage of the green Incredible Hulk Coaster as it launches from zero to 40 mph in two seconds. I watched in terror as the thing screamed above me. My daughter begged me to ride it with her but I know what my heart can or cannot take. The ride has seven inversions and two subterranean trenches during the 2-minute 15-second run.
Help Jimmy Neutron save the world.

A Kid’s Diary — by Lauren.
Islands of Adventure has the funest roller coaster — the Hulk.
The Cat in The Hat ride, like the books, are so funny.
Jurassic Park is where dinosaurs have gone wild.
Twister had lots of things that blew away. A big cow, a huge truck, and buildings all came at us.
Terminator 2 3-D is so real I had to take the 3D glasses off at times because it got so scary.
Jaws — the attack on a tour boat was really scary.
Jimmy Neutron Blast — casting all of the Nickelodeon's past and present cartoon characters.
Hang ten. . . or five.
Disaster — is a safe but exciting ride and you end up watching the movie that was created and filmed.
Spiderman (the ride) — when Spiderman's arch enemy shoots fire at you on the screen you feel heat! And when Spiderman jumps on your car, you can feel his weight push your car down.
Popeye and Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barge — You will get wet on this ride.
Men in Black Alien Attack — You get points anytime you shoot an alien.
