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!

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!

Tonight's edition features Sea World Orlando brochures from the 1990s. This was the decade that saw SWO's first steps in adding mega themed-attractions and rides. With the opening of the Universal Orlando Resort and Disney's Animal Kingdom, I felt SWO moved the park into the league of the big boys. New attractions included: Terrors of the Deep, Mission: Bermuda Triangle, Manatees: The Last Generation?, Pacific Point Preserve, Wild Arctic & Journey To Atlantis.Let's take a look back at Sea World Orlando in the 90's. Enjoy!
