5. Hogsmeade Stamp

4. The Fountain

As you journey through the Lost Continent at Islands of Adventure keep an eye out for the Mystic Fountain.

It can be found just outside Eighth Voyage of Sinbad stunt show and he is rather cheeky. He will spray unsuspecting onlookers with water, crack jokes and riddles, as well as set quiz questions.

3. The Transformers Elevator

Despite Transformers: The Ride-3D being constructed in a brand new building, there still was not quite enough space to house the attraction.

In order for it to fit comfortably into the area, the ride had to be constructed over two floors. This means that guests will need to be transported between floors. To do this there is an elevator which takes guests to the different levels.
