“Harry Potter!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

We went here with 1 ride in mind - Harry Potter, it was amazing. A bit scary at times but well worth the wait. Our wait time was just over 60 min but the line was always moving so it did not feel that long. The misters in line were a nice touch as the day were there it was really hot.
My niece decided at the last minute that she could not go on the ride but enjoyed walking through the castle.
Hulk ride , my nephew loved this, went on it twice.
Jurassic park, fantastic!

This park is great if you like coasters, i think we will pass on it next time.
The other thing I did not like were the long wait times some rides were over 60 mins. We expectated a long wait for Harry potter but we did not get to see everything due to the long wait times. We did Island of aventure in the morning and Universal studios in the afternoon.

“Better and cheaper than Disney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

We paid $147 for a 3 day visit to Universal and Islands of Adventure (tickets bought at the Official Visitors Bureau). We liked Spiderman best, and in fact it is better than before, full HD and a few tweaks here and there.
Doctor Doom is fun, as the build-up is quite scary, but the drop is no worse than the Tower of Terror at Disney.

Loved it, went back 3 times!! Sorry I missed the Jaws ride, but loved everything they had to offer. Early November a great time to go, the lines weren't too long and the weather was great.

“WOW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

we bought a two week unlimited ticket and must have used it 7 or 8 times in each park. There is so much to do - rides, shows, food and just walking about taking pics - i'll be back.
