This Park Desperately Needs Some New Rides

My family with 3 kids (ages 20, 16 and 14) have annual passes and we have gone two times this year. We love the Harry Potter, Marvel, and Jurassic areas, however there is really not enough to do for the entire day. Admittedly, we have stayed in the Royal Pacific (an Universal hotel) which gives us the express pass thus... More

So much fun, we would love to go again. There's a little something for everyone there. A lot of walking and standing in line, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes.

Opposite from what universal studios is, adrenaline packed, fun ,fast paced full of rollercoasters if you are looking to test your heart for a whole day go to this park, best bang for your buck around but beware, arrive mad early or at 6:00pm cuz it gets mad crowded, easy pass or fast pass (don't remember the name exactly) is...

Thrilling rides, amazing amusement for kids, can't go wrong! It's everything you want in a theme park! Only thing is the food options aren't the greatest... pack some snacks!

We absolutely loved our visit to Island Adventure. It will be cherished for a long time. Nothing bad to say, everything was just perfect.

My wife, 5 kids and I all had the best time ever at a Universal. We went on a day that most of the crowds seem to leave around 2:00pm. After that, it was great... it felt like we had the place to ourselves. We didn't wait in any lines. The park was clean, people were friendly and the food... More

If you are into Harry Potter then this is the place you must go. Make sure you get a park hopper pass so you can ride the Hogwarts Express to Diagon Alley.

Loved all of Harry Potter. Totally like the movies. However, there wasn't much else to do unless you were with young kids. We (senior citizens but young at heart) bought a 2 day pass but 1 day would have been sufficient. You do need a hopper though as Harry Potter is in both islands.

Too commercial. Was appalled that you are charged $5.00 for an air dryer to dry your clothes after Jurassic Park ride. If they moved Spiderman, Harry Potter and Jurassic Park over to Universal it would have been much better. Not enough to do for the cost of the park. Too many shops, too many restaurants, not enough things to do.

If you are a Harry Potter fan, this park is soooooo worth the money!!! Where else can you step into your favorite book and LIVE like the characters? You can fully immerse yourself if you want to. Buy a Hogwart's robe, an interactive wand, a butterbeer, some Bertie Bott's all flavor beans, and more. (Bring your credit card, LOL) Be... More
