We'd already spent a couple of days across both Universal parks, but the queues were really long after 11am. I went back with my son for opening time and we managed to do all of the big thrill rides (Hulk, King Kong, Harry Potter, Spiderman and even Popeye and Bluto's barges (you will get soaked) before lunch. A great park,... More

We went with a large group of kids 12 and under. When we went the crowds were very manageable everywhere except the Harry Potter world. The 3d rides made most of us sick, but the big coasters are completely awesome. The highlight was the bluto raft water ride. So much fun! There were all the usual theme park complaints, like...

I thought Disneyland had the cleanest park but Universal Orlando proved me wrong. The park is well taken care of and the rides are fun. If a ride warns the patron that they will get wet, believe it. Hogshead Village was well done. It was worth the pricey ticket to make it a "park-hopper". Hogwarts Express takes patrons back and... More

As part of 2 parks this is generally more aimed towards the younger child (no matter how old you are) Great fun and some really good attractions. The newer attractions do not fail to impress; the older ones are not quite so good. Universal have certainly mastered the are of the "virtual" ride with Harry Potter and Kong. Absolutely fantastic.

We all enjoyed our 2 visits here. Our Grandchildren loved it and really loved the Superheroes. Our Sons loved the rides! The Staff were all very helpful and really seemed to enjoy their work, even in all the heat!

Make sure you get fast passes we never waited longer than a minute for any ride. The characters were fantastic with our 4 year old. Staff on site were great . What a great place.
