Fun fact: Islands of adventure was designed by ex-disney imagineers working on animal kingdom. This park is great, with the theme of written works with Kong as an exception. It's fascinatingly fun. The themed lands are fun but are in fact well themed each with great attractions like hulk coaster and harry potter. All the rides are in fact great... More

I love this park so much. With the train making it easy to park hop, you are able to experience Universal as you never have before. Islands of Adventures new ride, King Kong, is amazing. I truly enjoyed it. The Harry Potter area is incredible and you will want to have a second ticket to go to Diagon Alley which... More

The new chocolate factory was very cool to look at and we enjoyed ourselves out in front of Margaritaville having a few drinks and enjoying that beautiful Florida sun. You could walk around the lake which is relaxing and has plenty of shopping as well as every type of restaurant you could imagine. You do have to pay for parking... More

Absolutely love this park. A lot of fun, clean, and everyone was friendly. Free lockers to use while on rides! Love it! Refillable cups, dining plans. My son had a wand pick him just like the Harry Potter movie. Definitely will come back.!

It doesnt get bigger than kong. It breaks down a lot. We got in line when it was just reopening so the line was cool. The second time was very long but a man behind a wall scared u soooo much that it was worth it. The pretend driver was different our second time and that kept it interesting too.... More

But we could never miss the Rockit and men in Black These two rides are enough of an excuse to visit Island of adventure Then take some time to stop bye and eat a delicious ice cream Sunday together with some churros. What a nice way to expend three hours around. However, Universal needs to do something quick about their... More

Every time we come here we always have fun and make the comment how advanced the rides are and how they make Disney rides look pathetic. Don't get me wrong, I love Disney but that's more of the nostalgia of it but they don't update like Universal does and makes them look like they are in the stone age. Most... More

I can only give this a low rating as we weren't told that 2 of the attractions were closed, & like many others we arrived early to take advantage of short queue's, & found most cafe's & restaurants don't open until 11 to 11-30am, there was small kiosks but apart from coke, no sugar free drinks, I'm sure this won't...
