This was our third trip to Universal/Islands of Adventure and each time has been simply awe inspiring. Several rides are similar, but all are fun. The attention to detail throughout the park is fantastic and with the latest edition - The Hogwarts Express and Diagon Alley- well, the train made me cry just a tiny bit due to its utter... More

We had a good time. My wife is into Harry Potter and she really had fun in potter world. A lot of rides but we didn't want to wait in lines so we get to ride everything. We will try more next time.

Only thing I didn't like was that they kept us waiting in line for the Harry Potter ride for about an hour only to tell us that the ride was closed. Other than that, it is amazing! It was a rainy day and my sisters and I still had a blast.

My adult daughter and I went for her birthday and had a blast. Hogsmeade was amazing and we enjoyed everything. The Harry Potter area was really cool, but; the butter beer was terrible and overall the food was not great in that part of the park!

This was our third trip to Orlando. We had been to Disney on two trips visiting all the parks and to Universal Island of Adventure once before. We bought 2 day Universal ticket and because of the cost we felt obliged to use it. I don't think this park has changed much since we last visited it . The Harry... More

If I had to choose between Universal and Disney for an older child, it would definately be universal, but one 3 day pass was more than enough. Be sure to eat before you go in as the prices inside are outrageous. First you walk what seems like a mile just to get to the shops then you choose which park... More

The park is showing it's age. We much preferred Universal Studios, but enjoyed the Harry Potter attraction and Marvel Comic section. A few other areas were under construction. This park is a better choice if you have young kids. However, beware, the Hulk roller coaster is intense!

perhaps better suited for younger kids, the only part of the park we enjoyed was the Harry Potter section

Get ready to have a blast, it is easy to go around its larger than Universal Studios but very nice to roam, don't waste your money on a express pass, especially if your main reason is to beat the Wizardry World of Harry Potter, the Forbidden Journey does not had a espress line and the other two attraction are never...
