As the proud winner of the Mythological Creatures Essay Contest, I am now on the ferry to Mr. Prospero's Island of Mythical Beasts. #PUMPED

Prospero's Island
@IslandofBeasts

Welcome, my lucky few first guests, to the pre-opening event of my marvelous island of mythical beasts! Where fantasy becomes reality!

Park just opened and Prospero's a no-show. I bet I'll find out what's up. Then I'll be a rich man.

As a fan of Greek mythology, I say the three-headed hellhound is a thing of beauty. #Cerberus

So far today I've seen the faerie glen, the goblin village, and the pegasus stables! #howcoolisthat!

@IcanChanChan Carrie, do you see any statues that look like park staff in Medusa’s lair?

Carrie Chan
@IcanChanChan

I do. They look so real. That’s really clever.

It would be, except those weren't there before. I think you should get out of there. FAST.

Wait! Who turned out the power! I did not okay that!
