Universal Studios Islands of Adventure. Seuss Landing.

imageLast weekend, Doug’s employer had a company picnic at Universal Studios.  The picnic part was at CityWalk, which connects the two Universal Studios parks.  With our tickets (a mere $15 per person!), we received admission to one of the parks, parking and a catered lunch at CityWalk.  We chose to use our tickets to visit the Islands of Adventure park.  We had a blast!  I must say that, after numerous trips to Fiesta Texas and Sea World, and a trip to Disneyland forever ago, I have never been to a theme park like this.  They really got the theme part right.  Walking from one part of the park to another was like walking into another world… a very convincing world.  image

The first and last part of the park that we visited was Seuss Landing.  I love Dr. Seuss.  Who doesn’t?  imageThe Cat in the Hat ride was way fun.  The big kids rode it once in the morning and again in the afternoon so that both parents could ride it.  :)   image Are you hungry?  What do you think?  Try Circus McGurkus for great food and drink! :)imageI love the Truffula trees.  Sadly, some had been chopped down…  (name the book!)

imageTravis got to ride the Caro-Seuss-el.  He giggled the whole ride, and his big brothers were excited that he got to ride with them. imageimageimage This is the sign that hung on the street lights.  :)  We had lots of fun in Seuss Landing.  I just love Dr. Seuss.  Love. 

Tanner decided that he wanted to buy a Cat in the Hat hat as his souvenir of the day.  He loves to dress up in costume, that boy.  :)
