Favorite themed area?

Postby Dombot » Thu Oct 12, 2017 5:41 am

What's your favorite themed area or "land" of any park, and why?

Mine's probably Pandora at DAK. Unpopular opinion- Avatar is one of the best movies of the 2000's. I love the story, I love the FX, I love the soundtrack, I love the script... everything. That aside, this place is perfect, whether you've seen the movie or not. Sa'tuli Canteen's bowls are amazing, Flight of Passage is the best simulator ever, and the entire environment of it... you can't miss it if you're in Orlando. It's mind-blowing.

Diagon Alley, easily. The amount of subtle details from the books that made it's way into that land is mine blowing.

Although it now doesn't have any rides other than a show residing in it, I absolutely love The Lost Continent. The facade for PA is so beautiful. I also used to love The Amity Island themed land. It wasn't over-the-top, and that's probably why I liked it.

I love all the themed areas in Epcot, but I just absolutely love Future World. I mean it's funny that I'd choose this because it's not something that is unique or too unique, but I love it. The dome, the pavilions, I like the look of the area

I think you got a little Fun Spot in your Universal. :lol:

My favourite is Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Hollywood.

I love the theming of Diagon Alley and the Wizarding World, but I find the whole area pretty cramped. I can't argue with the attention to detail though.

Some of my other favorites are basically any of the Disney lands not themed to a Dino carnival and Taron's area at Phantasialand.

There are so many between Disney and Universal that it is hard to choose there.

Outside of those parks, SFoG has a pretty amazing Gotham City section
Most of Busch Gardens Tampa - but especially Pantopia (I love that the overlying story includes the shops and restaurants as well,) and any theming that contains Kumba is automatically awesome!

For a major theme park I've been to, Pandora takes the cake on this one. First... it's in Animal Kingdom which might be my favorite WDW park. The whole park is so luscious and textured. Then this amazing fantasy world shows up set into this rich structure. The area is amazing during the day, and a completely different neon world at night (especially after getting a few drinks around the park). Add in the incomparable Flight of Passage, and the area is a slam dunk.

I'm gonna give a (dis)honorable mention to "The Golden Kingdom" at GADV during its first years. The whole area had a nice jungle feel to it, it had giant tortoises, tigers, a pretty great show, and KINGDA KA. The area connected conveniently to El Toro too. The whole area felt like a new and exciting start for GADV when it opened. Unfortunately years of being in a Six Flags park have turned it into a dead end section to access Zumanjaro and Kingda Ka. I was really surprised how run down Kingda Ka looked when I last visited, especially compared to how nice TTD looked around the same time.

Editors note: I really like a jungle theme done well
