Went to Universal for a one day trip. We hadn't been in 5 years. Lots of new stuff that is really good. However, they have implemented and strictly enforce a policy for some rides that includes riders having nothing on their body. Everything has to go in lockers followed by going through metal detectors and wanding. This is really stupid.... More

This place is big & beautiful, but if you're not prepared that can spoil it all. Especially for our out-of-country visitors, FL is HOT & HUMID. Dress in light colored, lightweight clothes & comfy, well-worn shoes. I saw people faint w/heat exhaustion, bring your H2O! Then hit the ground running (figuratively) & be prepared to stand in line. Stay on-site... More

Well we live in Orlando so its very advantageous for us to purchase the annual pass. We mainly use it for Mardi Gras and its also a boredom breaker for those days with nothing to do. City Walk is a must do. Come and enjoy.

Universal Islands of Adventure had some very exciting areas but there was little shade and almost no areas to rest. For that reason I would not return. There are other activities which are less expensive and provide better service.

Would avoid Popeyes Barge Ride or do it last. You get absolutely soaked from head to toe. I thought this would be a great way to cool off on a hot day. It was but then you have to walk around the rest of the visit in wet clothes. Love roller coasters but it jerks around to much and caused... More

Two of our girls like riding roller coaster so this place checked off all of the boxes! Other rides were fun, but the roller coasters were the biggest hit. Be sure to go to the shows. Its a chance to escape the heat and sit down for awhile. You do a great deal of walking at this place. Its a... More

Great Park! I recommend getting express pass and a park hopper! The theming of this park is great it's like you step into completely different worlds as you are walking though! The Hulk was great! The dulling roller coaster was great (even though the orange train was not running. The Harry Potter Rides were GREAT!!! Also if you are a... More

Less then 15 minutes per line, with the exception of Harry Potter. Not too crowded but go early. Around 12:30 people started flooding in but we just switched to the other park.

This is my husband first trip to Orlando. We originally wanted to go to orlando universal but we accidentally went to the island adventures. It seems that this is common mistake and the people that work there are pleasant and have no problem helping you get to the park you originally wanted but my husband decided to pay more to... More

Jurassic Park was my favourite area in this park, especially the ride itself. I went on Wednesday and with fewer people, I was able to jump on the ride twice with only a 5 minute wait time. The themes are great, rides and shows are fantastic, but the food could be a little healthier. Shops are expensive for souvenirs and... More
