What can you say that hasn't been said before? The place is fantastic and keeps on getting better, the only downside is having to pay for fastpass options.

Stayed at an onsite hotel so we had fast passes for a couple of days. Our daughter loves Harry Potter and was moved to tears when she saw Hogwarts. Couldn't use fast pass on forbidden journey ride but it's well worth queuing for. Loved all the rides here, especially the water rides. Butter beer was lovely and we ate at the three broomsticks which was lovely too.

My family and I (3 kids under 12) went to Island of Adventure july 15th we really enjoyed ourselves . Island of adventure is very different from universal park in the sense that you have more roller coasters and water rides. The rides at IOA are truly awesome and well thought out. You have plenty to see and do as I referenced in my review on Universal express passes are needed for rides like the Hulk and Spider Man. You unfortunately cannot use express passes for the Harry Potter ride and the line averages 120 min. But hey you can have everything. Overall you and your family will not be disappointed plenty to see and do for all ages.

First thing when you get there....excellent ride. Spiderman is very good also. We were not adventurous to ride Hulk nor the Dragons, but have a try if you are fearless!

Now that one of my kids is older he can get on all the big coasters he couldnt last year! Quick pass is definately worth the extra 100 bucks.
