By far our best park

We absolutely loved the Harry Potter World as well as the Cat in the Hat land and the fantastic rides like the Hulk. Don't miss this park.

June is a really busy month. Lines were long. Not a lot of things for a 4 year old to do. Multi day passes are a must. The kids will tire out and get cranky before you get to more than 2 or 3 attractions with the long lines.

This park has some impressive attractions but it also has attractions that need updating. I think that it is guilty just like the others with respect to overcharging for every little feature.

As I am sure you will hear, there is a lot of walking. That being said, it is smart to look up the map online prior to visiting and plan out your visit. We went through each attraction and took a family vote as to whether we all wanted to go. We plotted our course to be able to visit... More

Don't know whether we lucked out with it being a week day but we went for park opening and got on everything before noon with only a 5min wait for each - we had no fast track/express... More

Fun park to visit, but know that it is small. Harry Potter is very cool. The ride is intense! If you stay in a Universal Resort, be sure to use you early admission to visit HP! For all other rides express passes are a nice to have! We felt like we walked on every ride with no wait. This parks... More

Took my 9 year old grandson. He had an awesome time, especially on the water rides. The park is clean. Food ok but too expensive.

We visited here twice in 2011. The first time we visited was mainly for the Harry potter ride & Hogsmead village. The park has something for everyone. For the little ones you have the Dr Seusse area with the Cat in the hat ride, One fish two fish ride the high in the sky ride and a play area. For... More

Our whole family enjoyed this day. We had planned which rides we wanted to stand in line for. The Harry Potter castle was fantastic and brought to life all the books we had read. We did a dining option here, although a bit repetitive many times it's just ok. And really nobody was hunger except for wanting to return to... More
