Had a lovely time here, some awesome rides, especially Spiderman and the Popeye water ride!

Of course food etc is expensive, but you'd expect that! We packed our own lunch.

Rides suitable for all ages!

Probably wouldn't visit again, feels like somewhere you don't need to go twice. If I do go back it will be for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter only!

Great park with some great rides!! Poisedon needs changing to something else so wouldn't bother with that - a bit odd! Harry Potter world incredible and the butterbeer which also felt a reasonable price for a theme park! Ride in castle very clever!

This park was BY FAR my favourite. I wasnt sure what to expect but it exceeded all my expectations. We started off in the comic book hero section after walking down city walk and taking LOTS of pictures and headed straight on to Hulk. We got there for opening, which I recommend at EVERY park, its WELL worth getting up early for and not queuing at all for! (We went in Sept, out of school hols) Theres so much to look at anyway while you're queuing, theres water towers and air con, you dont really notice it, or we didnt anyway. Hulk shoots you forward through a tunnel and out onto a fast paced, high speed coaster which was great! We then went on a few Xmen themed rides and headed on to my fav 3d ride, Spiderman. OMG, amazing. Im saying no more. Then came the water rides. WOW. in the uk, where it says on rides that you may get wet, and in certain seats you can avoid it? Not here. Bilge rat barges with Popeye, absolutely soaked. And im talking like you jumped into a river. But if you wear swim shorts and a thin t-shirt, you should dry off within an hour. The weather is that hot, you will be glad of the refresh! I wouldnt recommend wearing denim, or black. You will melt! Then we headed through Jurassic Park, which was cool, then came TWWOHP. This is the most popular part of the park, so will be busy until about half and hour til closing. Its very cool, HP stuff everywhere, shows, animation rides, be sure to get a picture in front of the castle. It looks amazing! If you would like to queue for a wand to 'choose the wizard' you will be waiting HOURS. We went past several times and it was always a LONG wait, I just bought a wand in the nearby shop. The dragon race ride was amazing too and worth queuing for the front. Then is the Sinbad kind of world, which we found a bit boring, and the Dr Seuss land, which is the kids area. very colourful, and I recommend a cupcake from the shop if you have a sweet tooth. All round GREAT park, lots to see, do, shop. BTW, prepare yourself for a shock on some of the souvenirs. A TINY key ring will cost you $5 or more, but I suppose its all for the cause?
