We go here everytime, we go to Florida. Love the Spider Man ride. Favorite. Great for all ages. Lots of walking, and very hot in the summer.

“Harry Potter is great, the rest just so-so”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

We had one day to visit one park and our 13-year-old son chose Universal's Islands of Adventure so he could see the Harry Potter exhibit. That was lots of fun and I'm glad we went, but as for the rest of the park, it's all just shops and a few rides. Give me Disney any day of the week over Universal.

“Great theme park!”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Our family of four (10 & 7 year old kids) had a great time at islands of adventure. The Harry Potter section was very impressive, even for my kids who have not been exposed to this story. Lines were not terrible, even though it was one of the first weeks of spring break. My daughter was not tall enough to go on a few of the rides, but really enjoyed the ones she could go on. Both raft rides were a big hit, but be prepared, we got soaking wet.

The Hulk roller coaster was my son's favorite and was a good ride. We liked the retail areas, and the themed areas to visit.

Overall, we were very pleased with booking a two park, two day, plus Blue Man Group weekend at Universal instead of going to Disney.

“Great time”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

If amusement rides are your thing then a stop at Islands of Adventure is a must. Disney is nice, but for thrill seekers, there are more options here,

This attraction was well worth the money spent. The longest time we spent in line was for the Hulk Roller Coaster Ride which was around 1 1/2 hours. The rest of the rides were less than an hour wait. In our families opinion, the Harry Potter 3-D ride was the best one there followed by a close 2nd of the Dragon Challenge Roller Coaster Ride. This park had several different areas from movies; marvel, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, Dr. Seus, Toon Lagoon and the Lost Continent. All these areas featured some excellent rides. Will warn you, all the water rides, you will get wet. Everyone will get wet that rides on them. The food prices were actually a little better here.
