Toon Lagoon

On KEN P.D. SNYDECAST #178: Advise And Dissent Ken and Dana talk briefly about Toon Lagoon at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure.

Ken remarks about how "cheap" looking it is.

Here is some info from Wiki:

Toon Lagoon is geared toward both kids and adults, and is based on the characters of King Features Syndicate and Jay Ward. The area focuses on water-based rides (hence the name) and features 3 counter-service restaurants: Comic Strip Cafe (offering Italian & Chinese Cuisine, Burgers & Dogs, and Fried Chicken & Fish), Blondies (home of the famous Dagwood), and Wimpy's (only open during peak seasons) & All On Mulberry Street.

 The Island is rigged with dozens of water props that squirt at visitors and can be interacted with if so desired. In addition, visitors have the option of further soaking those who are riding on board water rides by squirting them with water guns, activating water cannons, and more.

 Yeah, it's not that well themed. But hey, where else can you see Cathy spread eagle on a mound of ice cream?:
