“Roller Coaster Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

If you like Thrill rides then this place is a must!! The roller coasters and other rides are out of this world! They are far superior to the ones in the UK.

“Great place for teens”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

As an adult well past my roller coaster riding years, I was a bit bored here. The kids loved it though! Got the, " I chickened out" t-shirt.

“Best for thrill seekers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

The newest of the Universal parks, and definitely THE park to visit if you are looking for more roller-coasters and thrill rides. I guess more aimed at teens/young adults rather than the family themed Disney parks.
If I was to visit one park in Orlando it would be Islands of Adventure.

“This is the place to take your TWEENS & TEENS!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

This is a great fun and exciting park to visit and play. But it is NOT for your younger family members. They are to small for the rides! Its great for the tweens, teens and young at heart. Even if you are not fond of Harry Potter or Super Heros the rides are thrilling, as are the shows.

“Good Alternative to Disney”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Fewer crowds than Disney with plenty to do at a more relaxed pace. The Harry Potter section was amazing. There is a great playground with water guns that my 4 year old granddaughter played with for about an hour. There is a talking fountain in front of the Sinbad attraction that is hilarious and shouldn't be missed.
