Flew out of Flint, MI to Orlando on 01/31/01 with my fiance Joey. Got to IOA at about 1:00 after getting rental car. Had been to this park last May and loved it! Weather was high 70's and cloudy and there were no waits! I had forgotten how cool Hulk's launch was! This coaster is in my top 5 coaster for sure! Also did Dueling Dragons a few times. I think I liked Ice better this time although I love it on Fire when the Ice train goes right below you. Didn't get to ride in the front because fiance is big and has to use the special seats in the 3rd and 6th rows (I think). Tried the Flying Unicorn too--not too bad. This was something new since it wasn't open when we were at IOA last year. Also did both of the water rides this year for the first time too. Had a blast on both of them but got super wet! Good thing it was pretty warm out! Did Dr. Doom this time too. Pretty cool but short. Spiderman was awesome as ever! Did just about every ride in the park and were able to finish the park by 6pm closing time. Got alot of pics of us with characters too! :) Loved the lack of lines in the park! Definately will be back to Florida around this time next year too!

The flying Unicorn to me does not look like a kiddie coaster. I really loved the park it has to be my fav. It was my first time I went there on January 2-7 and it was cold about 60 degree's but I thought it felt pretty good I'd rather have it a little cold then 100 degree's. But that didn't stop me from going on the water rides.

It was cold Jan. 2-7? It seemed like 80 degrees for me. Maybe it's because I'm coming from Michigan, which is so cold(except for today).
