We waited quite a while to experience the Gringots ride (wait times were 2 hours plus) and the ride itself was a bit of a let down. The Hogwarts castle ride has the gringotts ride beat hands down. That said, Diagon Ally was neat and they now have interactive wands that the kids can use throughout the Hogsmeade and Diagon... More

Waited in line for an hour just to collect tickets, guy was not bothered at all but used it as a selling point by saying 'would you like to purchase an express pass as this is the shortest line you'll be I'm today'!!!!! Charming!!!! He was wrong and we didn't wait more than 40 minutes for any ride. This park... More

We had a two park two day ticket so we visited both parks. The rides were great, 3D rides were all great especially the Transformers and Simpsons. The Minions and Shrek were good too. The Mummy was great it is an indoor roller coaster. The Hulk roller coaster is awesome if you like coasters gotta check it out. Harry Potter... More

This is aimed at older children although there is Dr Seuss area for younger children. Fantastic park though with much bigger rides than Disney. Harry Potter world is fantastic and is the busiest area of the park. In September, we could wait anything from 5-50 minutes for rides like Harry Potter, Hulk and Spiderman. Warning: you will get VERY WET... More

Although the lines the way too long, we loved the new Diagon alley and Escape from Gringott's ride. Great special effects. Go the singles line to safe time.

I visited Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios on a one day, two park pass. We really wanted to see the Harry Potter sites and a two park pass is the only way unless you go on separate days. I thought the price excessive ($136 pp) and was not impressed with the array of attractions. The Harry Potter area was... More

Hulk is excellent. Harry Potter dragons excellent. Spiderman excellent. Poseidon's Fury poor. 8th voyage of Sinbad good. The water rides absolutely soak you. Not had chapped legs for a long time!! The 2nd Harry Potter is very good but a big queue. The problem with the universal is the lack of characters. There are less smiles around the park. Lacks... More
