For the last couple of years, it has seemed that the Lost Continent at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in Universal Orlando Resort had been abandoned.

The two attractions on the island– Poseidon’s Fury and The Eighth Voyage of Sinbad– have been closed for more than two years and the land has essentially been used as an overlap between Seuss Landing and Hogsmeade.

As a matter of fact, the only thing happening in the Lost Continent has been holding an overflow line queue for Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike, housing several shops, and giving Guests an extravagant dining option in Mythos, which has been named one of the world’s best theme park restaurants.

However, last August, Universal Orlando Resort opened the All Hallows Eve boutique in the Lost Continent giving Guests an opportunity to purchase some of their favorite Universal Classic Monsters and Halloween merchandise.

Now, as Mardi Gras returns to Universal Orlando, the All Hallows Eve Boutique has transformed into the All Hallows VooDoo Boutique and has added some crazy Mardi Gras merchandise and fun party-themed decorations to its repertoire for Guests to experience.  If you’re visiting Islands of Adventure in the near future, you can head by the All Hallows Eve Boutique for Mardi Gras celebration gear and much more.

Universal Orlando describes Mardi Gras as “Florida’s Biggest Party:”

Forget about your inhibitions. Forget about who’s watching. It’s time to let loose at Universal’s Mardi Gras. This ain’t no fancy tea party. The beads are back. The parade and concerts are back*. And every day and night you can enjoy food from New Orleans and dishes inspired by diverse tastes and flavors from from around the world**. It’s Florida’s Biggest Party, and it’s the loudest, wildest blowout this side of the Bayou.
