“Well organised however expect to queue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Two parks on the same site when you include universal studios - we bought buy tickets for a family of four for about @ $600 for two parks. Pricey and in our opinion not as good value as the Magic Kingdom. Queuing put us off many of the rides together with lack of information about the rides that were not visible to help members of our party make informed decisions to ride or not. Termination show was a must and a great experience. Harry Potter area was also one of the high points.

Car Parking was an additional $16 (unnecessary charge) and there was a long walk from the car park (moving walk ways help to make it easier). Car Parking was well managed.

“Excellent ....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

My kids were able to go on all the rides this trip, and LOVED every minute. The car parking charges (of $16) were a joke on top of the entry fee ...

“Great fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Good park for the older kids. Serious thrill rides but very little rides for the little ones.
Would recommend for ages 10+.
Clean facilities and good food. Worth the money for us.

“So much better than Disney!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Great rides if you buy the express pass, it will cut down the lines by 50-80% but there is a fee for it! This enables you to pack in as much as you can in a relatively short space of time. We waited for the Harry Potter Ride but not really for anything else. The food is pretty expensive but the rides are better than those at any Disney World park. The Hulk is amazing, duelling dragons is great, Spider-Man is great, Cat in the Hat is great too, flight of the hippo griff is brilliant, Jurassic Park is ultra wet! This park has lots of appeal but is expensive. $722.00 for a family of three (2 adults and 1 7 year old child) with access to both parks and express passes. It isn't much more expensive to buy more days! The real result is that we created some great family memories!
