Tons of fun rides & for the roller-coaster fanatic, it's a dream come true! The Hulk is my fave. Some other great rides not to miss: Harry Potter, Spiderman, Popeye (careful, you'll get drenched on this one!) & Transformers. If you stay at one of the Universal Resort hotels, you have an automatic fast-pass to all the attractions. Also, I... More

My fiance and I got park to park tickets to both the standard Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure--I definitely prefer Islands of Adventure! I am biased because I loved the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (which is incredible) but the superhero sections and Dr. Seuss land are also fun and interesting. Citywalk is also a lot of fun, especially... More

Universal's Islands of Adventure is a great amusement park that has it all! There are rides in all thrill levels, and you get to meet all your favourite Universal characters. The highlight for many visitors will be the Wizarding World of Harry Potter which is part of the theme park. Here you'll find restaurants, shops and rides all set in... More

I was pleasantly surprised over how much fun we had! The Dr. Seuss area brought back memories of my childhood, the Harry Potter area was intriguing, and the Jurassic Park section was true to the book and movie. We had a great time and would likely go back!

We spent one day at islands of adventure - primarily to visit the Wizarding world of Harry potter. It was phenomenal - well worth the money. So much detail was put into the castle - and the castle ride was one of a kind. Hogsmede was wonderful as well. Fish & chips at 3 broomsticks were very good and we... More

This park was incredible. The Marvel part of the park had some awesome rides. There was no line for the Fearfall ride so we went on it twice within 20 minutes! The Hulk was a thrill. Also, as a huge Harry Potter fan, the best part of the park for me was Hogsmeade. (Get a butterbeer outside, because it costs... More

Loved Hogsmeade - the frozen butter beer is a lot nicer than the cool one. The ride in Hogwarts castle is out of this world. As Harry Potter fans we are really looking forward to going back when "London" is finished

This park is more for the adventure and coaster lover but it is a very well done park. We went mainly to see Harry Porter and loved the way they had themed everything. We did not ride the ride because of the warnings for back problems, etc but did enjoy our day walking around and taking in all the sites.... More
