So we were there for 2 days and enjoyed it mostly (2 super hot days in July). The best rides are at the far end of the island, so it's quite the journey on a hot summer day. Best to start by walking all the way (with frequent water and A/C breaks) to the King Kong Skull Island Ride first... More

This is where the big kids come to play!!! Islands is a great park every island has wonderful rides for all to explore. It is a little pricey but worth the money. Definitely on busy days get the fast pass and also they have single rider lines easy for the person that wants to ride sooner .

Had a great time. Was not able to ride the new King Kong ride due to the ride being down and 90 min wait times due to the ride being down, that was the only disappointing thing maybe next time.
