    A hot tub time machine land with BTTF, Jaws, Kongfrontation, etc would be some people's wet dream.

    The area of Toon Lagoon is definetly outdated but the attractions are fantastic! I think the weakest island is definetly LC. It doesn’t even have a ride. Just a really cringy show.

    An overlay of TL would do wonders I feel...But from everhything I've heard, Popeye/Boop merch sells well, the rides are well liked, and it is recognizable enough to somewhat relevant

    LC, although a neat idea, suffers without the Merlin Woods section

    Can't say how badly I wish they had been able to remove one of the stores (Dervish and Banges? Zonko's?) and push the entrance just a little bit back...

    Of course, that still leaves HE, and the Dragons incident probably would've still happened. :(

    Merlin Woods was cool, but I feel that's nostalgia talking

    Financially speaking, it probably would have made more sense for them to take more of LC, not less.

    What is the likelyhood that toon lagoon will still be around as an actual themed land once fantastic worlds open?

    Toon Lagoon will still be with us by then.

    Lost Continent though...

    I hope Toon Lagoon never leaves.

    On a somewhat related note, does Bullwinkle ever do meet and greets anymore? A cast member recently told me that he’s only out during very crowded times nowadays, but I haven’t seen him at all in ages.

    Toon Lagoon is especially great on a hot day. We dress for the ride's wetness, and ride Popeye, Dudley, and JPRA in JP multiple times. The day we spent last week, in oppressive heat, riding the water rides was our most fun day in the park....by far. What a blast. ..And we're not young people either.....And we always get a kick out of the comics scenes....and the many, many people, of all ages, that do photo ops with them.

    The heat has certainly been extreme of late so I’m sure water rides felt great :lol:

    First trip ever to Florida with nary a trace of clouds or rain....but hot hot. I can't imagine being there this week with those mid to high 90 temps. When we got out of the car to get gas in Savannah yesterday, the 100 degree temperature smacked us right in the face. :lol:

    This is the worst time of the year in terms of heat. Right before the Summer rainy season, but it’s still extremely hot and the humidity only makes it worse. Yesterday was 97 with a feels like temp of 105 at one point.

    We come every year at this time, plus Fall. Hottest weather I can recall. No clouds to cut the sun's rays. We spent a 'lot' of time in the RP and CBBR pools. :lol:

    Hottest I can recall for this time too, tbh. It was at the point where the parks weren’t enjoyable in any way.

    Record temps this week. Never been this hot this early. Heat index of 106 in Daytona today. We better get rain soon or the space coast is gonna burst into flames.
