We figured during this downtime for theme parks we'd share some pics of Islands of Adventure, one of our absolute favorite parks. The park turns 21 today and is officially old to get a drink at Mythos, or Miss Oats as our kids called it during our first visit to the park in 2006.
And that's where we'll start our look back at the park today. Enjoy!! - Gregg

For the second part, we move over to the Islands of Adventure of today, well, a few years ago, just before Dragon Challenge closed.
The park sure has changed over the years. Check out these amazing pics from Matt.
And lastly, we'll leave you with the future, some pics of the yet unannounced Jurassic Park/World coaster. These were taken just before the parks shut down in early March. Thanks to Nicholas for sharing this pics with us.
We hope you enjoyed this quick look back at IOA. We can't wait to get back to the adventuring soon.
