    I LOVE this place! The Hulk roller coaster has been one of my favorites for years! I’m a roller coaster fanatic. The new Jurassic World VelociCoaster is unbelievable!!! I had a three year old and a baby with me and there were many things for them to do and see as well. They have the cutest Dr. Seuss area for kids. If you are a Harry Potter fan this place is a must see. Unfortunately, Harry Potter and the forbidden journey ride was down during this visit which was super disappointing! This is my favorite of the two Universal parks.

    Animal Kingdom is amazing. Love kilimanjaro safari especially seeing the baby elephant. Like festival of the lion King show. The gorillas are amazing. The tree of life is outstanding. Would recommend to anyone who likes Disney and animals. A really good fun day out.

    I had an awesome day here. The Simpsons area is amazing. Enjoyed all the Minions things especially Minions mayhem ride. I would recommend going to Universal to anyone.

    So many people go after the big parks, and they miss out on old time fun. They may not have all the robots and dramatic effects, but they are consistent on a good time for a family.
    You can visit for free with an armband the gator venue here at the park. We were so pleased to see Lucas introducing us to muffin, it was a great experience. Had a chance to meet Emma who took care of us in our bill at Johnny Rockets, when we made a mistake. Everything is so pleasant here when you communicate your needs.

    The place where dreams come true. From entering the park to leaving it felt like you were in the magical world of Disney. We entered the park at opening and left at closing clocking up some serious step counts when we were there.

    The food is pricey but you expect that. The usual tat was brought from the gift shops.

    The family loved it and created those special family moments that will last a lifetime.

    Sea World is amazing the work they do for all the animals they look after. I could have spent all day with the Manatees. I enjoyed feeding the sealions

    We had a lovely day here. We were lucky enough to get a family cabana, which was worth doing for a private space, it also came with unlimited soft drinks. It is a shame that Blizzard Beach was closed as we used to love visiting both Disney water parks, I hope that they can have both parks open at the same time soon. There are some really fun attractions here, the water coaster is great fun, as well as some raft rides and body slides. It is a shame that they got rid of the shark pool as I loved this experience! As much as I love this park, I have to say that Volcano Bay has the edge over this one!

    I like Blizzard beach. It isn't as popular as Volcano Bay but it being a little less busy is part of the attraction.
    Free parking.
    Excellent coffee.
    Some excellent food choices and ...
    Relatively cheap lockers !
    Ideal for all the family.

    It is run down compared to Seaworld and discovery cove. Half the all day eat and fine places were shut which meant long queues for food. Overall we had a great time . The wave pool and rapids were fab and no issues getting a sun lounger

    Flight of passage might be the best ride EVER! Everyone has to experience this at once in their life. The river boat ride is very relaxing and chill.

    I took my 9 year old son to the Orlando Watersports Complex as part of our spring break road trip. He did the required one hour safety training which taught him how to ride the cable and use a knee board. Once he passed he was able to then keep using the knee board or upgrade to a wake board for an additional 4 hours.

    My son had a great time at the park and spent nearly 3 hours riding until he got too tired.

    A few notes: When you fall off the cable you must swim to shore and then walk back to the start. Depending on where you fall, this can be a very long walk. On our trip it was really windy which made walking back with a knee board or wake board difficult as it acted like a sail. For smaller kids this may be difficult to do. I had to go help my son bring the boards back to the start.

    They do have food onsite and it was pretty good in case you forget to eat before arriving or stay there all day. There is really nothing else nearby food wise so plan ahead.

    Visited here today for the first time, as a gift for my son.

    A brilliant experience in the pouring rain, the new brit guy Dan was great with my son and his cousin.

    We're looking forward to returning soon.

    Airtime and B&M, what else can you expect. Best coaster restraints in the world, one of the best hyper layouts and super smooth. Might compare to Fury 325 if it was taller.
