We only did the family rides as there were various levels of risk taking and adventure between the 5 of us. All the rides were Great! and we spent the whole day doing them

Everything was well signposted so it was easy to get around the park. Our party was mixed ages and there were loads of things we could do as a group or as individuals. We were there just a couple of days ahead of the opening of Diagon Alley so were able to have a "preview" trip on Hogwart's Express which... More

we have visited Islands of Adventure three times and it has always been great. I have to say that almost all the staff at Universal seem to be having a great time especially in the Harry Potter section they get into character (even at a till) and have fun with the guests!

We have season passes because it is just so much fun! There is so much to do and see. The rides never get old, and the butter beer is a fun treat to share (it is pretty sweet to drink alone) every time we go I feel like a little kid the night before.. even though I have been here... More

I loved this park. The Harry Potter part is fantastic. I enjoyed the Butter Beer too :) If you have a pass for both the parks then I would definitely recommend getting the Hogwarts Express which travels between the both parks. It is a different experience each way. As for Islands of Adventures, my personal favourite ride was the Hulk.... More

September is a great time to visit from a crowds point of view. We had a wonderful 3 days in Universal and covered allot of ground. In addition to Harry Potter there are some great water rides so prepare to get very wet. Still not brave enough to do the hulk but there is so much to do here. Hogwarts... More
