The Lost Continent was once among Islands of Adventure's largest areas, until its medieval Merlinwood section was repurposed intothe Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade, leaving only the Arabian and Ancient Greek portions intact. What's left of Lost Continent is extremely well themed, and features the park's only attractions that aren't tied to a licensed intellectual property. Lost Continent can be reached directly from Hogsmeade or Seuss Landing, or on busy days via a bypass bridge to Jurassic Park.

The best attraction in Lost Continent may be the Mystic Fountain, an interactive talking fountain out in front of the entrance to Eighth Voyage of Sinbad. A castmember behind the scenes controls the fountain and is able to talk to and hear from anyone who approaches. Many kids seem mesmerized by it. Parents can grab a quick snack or drink while the little ones are entertained by the fountain mere steps away. The park's second First Aid station is also located here, behind the coin vendor.

The Lost Continent has one counter-service restaurant and one sit-down restaurant.
