Yet another 90’s travel brochure (we’re almost done with them, for now…), this time an Adventure Island brochure from 1993.  I’ve never been to AI, and have only been to its sister park, Busch Gardens once, so this doesn’t bring back any nostalgic memories like the Pleasure Island/Disney Marketplace ones have.  But its still cool looking back at these and seeing how things have changed in the last 25 years.  For instance the two big draws in this brochure, the Tampa Typhoon and the Gulf Scream are both gone (closed in 2005, demolished in 2014 [where they just sitting there for nine years unused?]), and replaced by the Colossal Curl, a tube slide that opened in 2015.  I may have to check this one out next time we go to Busch Gardens (which, based on my previous record, should be about 2053).
