Must be considered as one of the best parks in the world, lots of varied rides for all sorts of ages. Each section is themed very well and you can very easily spend all day here without realising how quick the time has gone.

At 4 different rides the express lines were longer than the regular lines. So we spent $269 for express passes for nothing!!! (Universal Adventure Island)

The ONLY thing that made this a 3 star rating was Harry Potter. The rest of the park was a waste of time and money.

I actually love universal more than disney the rides are more for adults compared to disney, if you give me a choice and have no kids going then universal gets my vote. No long lines and not crowded

The Hulk Roller Coaster is the first thing you see -- and it is amazing! The Spiderman virtual reality indoor ride is scarier than you might think -- and loads of fun. When my son was younger he absolutely adored the Dr. Seuss land (Cat...More

A mix of great rides (Spider-Man, shrek, Jurassic park) , middling experiences (monster make up , terminator) and downright awful (twister). Not really a universal movies experience....simply a series of theme park rides

If you are a Harry Potter fan this place will blow your mind. Top tip is if you can go on a ride on your own then as a party join the single riders queue. It took me 20mins to get on the ride x...More

Please remember to wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared to stand in line for each ride 30-60. Get the express pass. My family rode every ride except the hulk #2 afraid. The Harry potter castle tour was long and boring. Be prepared to pay...More

I would eat before you go, it's cheaper and probably a lot nicer.
I'm struggling to find a definitive and up to date answer regarding the use of GoPro cameras at Universal. I have a chest strap and head strap - am I allowed to use my camera on the rides if it is securely strapped?

We did not see anyone with the GoPro cameras on their chest. On some rides, they require people to go through metal detectors, so they probably won't allow the cameras on those rides. They are really strict about wallets and... More
