Great Park with lots to do for all the family, reasonable prices for food and drink within the parks and on city walk. Downside is long queues on some rides and after paying extreme amounts for tickets in first place refuse to pay another $60 each for fast passes once your here.

This is a fun place to take your kids, but it's a phenomenal place to let loose and be kid again for adults. They have exlierating rollercoasters and rides for all ages.

Went to Universal's Islands of Adventure this past week.If your wanting to do the King Kong attraction don't wait in line until you have done every thing else or you will be very disappointed.The attraction is beautifully made but the ride itself was very disappointing,lasting only two minutes to watch him fight a dinosaur.

My family and I spent the day here. I couldn't believe how realistic the rides were. Some of them were like being in a movie. The grounds were very well maintained and even the bathrooms were clean. Be prepared to pay for parking but don't get the expensive parking. It didn't make a huge difference. Also, we didn't get to... More

This was a family outting with my husband's side. His family is pretty chill with schedules, so most of the time it was just the two of us. Had we not had fast passes, I think I would have had a very different experience. May wasn't a wildly busy time to be here. We had a three day hopper-pass to... More

We had 2 week passes for the 2 universal parks and 2 disney parks this was the best by far. The park looked brand new, and clearly update rides regularly. There needs to be more obvious vegetarian options here though but other than that, we had a fantastic time. We loved the Harry Potter experience and the rides there, and... More

We did Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Universal and lastly Islands of Adventure - This was definitely the best was to do the parks as the ride and experiences got better each time we went to a new park! Don't miss out on Ripsaw Falls and the Rapids... Or Jurasic Park - Our Favourite ride - 3 times on those! haha

Don't know what's gone wrong here. We visited Universal studios for the first time last year (2015) There are some fantastic rides. Hulk, Spider-Man and Harry Potter stuff. We saw they were building a new ride Skull Island. We returned this year (2016 September) we made a 'Bee Line' for the ride, thinking it's going to be amazing, right, it's... More
