Retro Photo TR: Islands of Adventure 1999


Recommended Posts

Weird to think of this as retro, but I found my pics I took in March/April and may of 1999 while Islands of Adventure was doing soft openings. Notice the BRIGHT paint everywhere!

 

Enjoy!

I went during the soft opening (All Year!) I went along in September, and loved the park, everything was so clean and bright!

 

Although I have to admit, I quite liked the Universal Studios Escape logo, got a Polo Shirt with it on somewhere

 

Interesting to see you worked there, did you work there for long?

I worked for USF/IOA from 1999-2002. I also helped open Universal Studios JAPAN in 2001. But I've been at Disney since 1999.
