I enjoyed both of the version of the Kungaloosh. And definitely enjoyed them both. The first was certainly a little less oversweet and palatable. On the hotter visits, the early one was more refreshing for sure. The later recipe certainly went down a little too quickly as it was more like a daquiri. Regardless of which recipe, I enjoyed many nights at the Adventurer's Club and still cherish my memories there as some of the best in quite a few visits to the World.

I must say I never dug into the Adventurers Club info before but I interested in the drink recipes. Found these for a Kungaloosh, which I thought was just an AC saying no clue it was a drink. Never did any research on this place. Old Kungaloosh Recipe -- Circa 1997 1 1/4 ounce vodka 1 1/4 ounce Malibu Rum 3/4 ounce Midori (melon liqueur) 2 tablespoons pineapple juice 1 splash cranberry juice Mix well. 'm New Kungaloosh Recipe -- since 2000 or so 1 cup Daily's Strawberry Daiquiri Mix 1/4 cup orange juice 1/4 cup Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum 1/4 cup blackberry brandy Toss it in a blender with enough ice to make it slushy. Which one will they use? I would assume the premixed daiquiri wins unfortunately. With that you'll have an overly and powerfully sweet strawberry mix with orange juice, Spiced rum and blackberry brandy. Never had brandy let alone blackberry kind to know what this would do to the taste other than add a flavor. Don't have blackberry brandy but I do have raspberry schnapps for a possible substitute. But overpowers drinks if using that much. Could probably improve that by using Triple Sec or Blue Curacao instead of OJ and Captain Morgan Private Stock for smoother flavor. The first one sounds good. With the vodka base, a coconut rum, a melon liqueur (gives the drink color and some flavor) , pineapple juice and a splash on cranberry? surprised it was not Grenadine but if Roes's is used it's just red corn syrup. This one I would like to try at home but I need to get some Midori. Seems like a good excuse to have it on hand also. So who had the green ones and who had the purple ones? Which is better? Guessing on colors based on the liquors, correct me if I'm wrong. @21stamps @DavidS1234

We've been to HHN 2x and loved it, but it was at least 8-10 yrs ago. Really looking forward to it this year. Never went to CitiWalk after - so will have to check that out! (But how does anyone have the energy after closing HHN at 1am? If I could only be 21 again for one night. I just can't party like that anymore. :hilarious::hilarious: :hilarious: We have friends who do FF in KW every year and they keep asking us to go...I love KW, but I look at the pics and videos and those crowds look a wee bit nuts for me. Maybe one day...:D

Definitely do it when you can. We used to do Fantasy Fest in Key West and HHN back to back. So much fun. I always thought CityWalk was a good time, and but yeah after HHN is some of my best memories there.

No, but I REALLY want to. It's on my list of must-do-one-day. I always look forward to all the bootleg videos though, especially of the Bill and Ted show. I didn't even know Citywalk does something special for HHN!

Have to been to HHN? Imo City Walk is better than Pleasure Island was.. especially Halloween Horror Nights. I haven't been there since 2009 :(

Loved PI. :inlove: But never made it to Adventurer's Club - so that one will have to be a YouTube experience.

I would have loved to see Disney's take on adult nightlife before the area became an open-air mall.

21stampsJun 24, 2017

Yes! It was a lot of fun! That was back in my adult only Disney days.lol

The_JobuJun 24, 2017

Like most things I've never experience, I associate all my knowledge of it from the Simpsons...

The_JobuJun 24, 2017

Did you ever visit Pleasure Island when it was open? It looks grand.

21stampsJun 24, 2017

Darn, I miss all of the good stuff.

The_JobuJun 24, 2017

Awesome! I just saw this great doc last week and now this. Really makes me wish I could be there.
