Such a good place to go for old and Young people. It is busy this time of year because it's the holidays, longest wait would be +2hr.

Will never forget the rides and the looks on the kids face. Qs were massive especially the Harry Potter train trip, but worth it in the end, get there early 08.30 allow time for bag searches etc. and you will enjoy .

A great park to visit. The aim is to get the best out of any of the parks and so you need to plan ahead. Buy the tickets in advanced so no long queues on the day. Download the app so you can check wait times on the day. Get there early and jump on the popular rides before the... More

If you love roller coasters & fun rides, then this park is for you! We loved the Hulk & Harry Potter coasters! The Spider-Man 3D ride is amazing! And the Jurassic Park ride is sooooo much fun!! But, be prepared to get wet!! We would absolutely come back!

Spent a full day at Universal Islands of Adventure with our grandchildren (age 3 and 10). Something for them both. Our older grandson loved the Marvel and Harry Potter areas while our younger grandson would have spent the whole day in Dr Suess World. I was sceptical going in believing its was for older children teenagers and over, and there... More

We did both parks in one day. If you are there for the rides this is the better one than Universal Studios. Definitely invest in the fast pass tickets if you want a short wait.

This was a fist time trip to Universal with my two nephews (9 and 10). They absolutely loved it!! There are so many different things to do in the park that you feel like you're entering a new park in each area. I can't say I would recommend this place for very young children. The roller coasters were the boys... More

Disney is the best place of littel ones and great for family photos, however, as a local, I can promise you that your children will have more fun at Islands of Adventures and Universal Studios. Here's why: (1) SpiderMan, a very exciting 4D ride (2) The Hulk, an adult size roller coaster (3) Meet and great Marvel Super Heros (4)... More

Better than Disney! We enjoy City Walk, Margaritaville, and ColdStone. Sit with friends at the Lone Palm.
