This was our fourth visit to this park, the last being 6 years ago. We went straight to Harry Potter and had only a 45 minute wait. On exiting the ride the wait had gone up to 70 mins! It was brilliant if a little scary but definitely one to do. We ate in Captain Americas diner and the food was ready quickly and really tasty. Prices were reasonable as well. Spiderman was better than I remembered but I think they have enhanced it in some way. Cat in the hat had only a 15 minute queue and was also good. The drinks in Harry Potter land were more expensive than in the rest of IOA for some reason. The shops had lots of different souvenirs but we found chocolate bars to be fairly expensive. All in all one not to miss.

Ridculous queues for the rides and no fast passes included in ticket price. They have to be paid for as an extra. Disgusting but Harry Potter was great if you can get into the park early

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.
