The employees here seem to be grouchier than at USF. The locker attendant at Forbidden Journey reminded me of a TSA employee: grouch at everyone and herd them through. The Seuss trolley operator told us what lines to get in. All five of us were confused by the way she phrased the instructions. Let me point out that we are... More

This place focuses on superheroes and other movies characters: meet the Marvels is not to be missed. Spiderman simulation is fantastic as well Jurassic Park meet the raptor: it seems very very real ! Get ready for water splash as well if it's hot and you are in the mood.

It's just hipper than Disney and touches more brands of genres. I love Disney. It's feel good. It's fun. But the rides are let's just say quite physical. Islands of Adventure has state of the art technology on a number of the attractions. To name a few. If you love Harry Potter it's so good. The rides are great. The... More

It's always challenging planning a trip to any of the major amusement parks and picking the right time to go can make or break your trip. Based on my most recent visit, February seems to be ideal. The park wasn't crowded and I didn't wait any longer than 15 minutes for any one ride. The Hulk is fantastic both during... More

We covered both Universal Studios and the Islands of Adventure in 2 days with a focus on rides. We did all of them except Kong that had almost 2 hours of wait for most of the time. In the evenings the wait time is like half hour for Kong/Skull Island, but we were too tired by that time. Highly recommend... More

We love this place. However, it's ridiculously expensive. You guys have to make it a lil easier in the pocket. We are absolutely sure you can afford to. Thank you :)

This was our second trip to Universal and we still loved every minute of it. The Hogwarts Express is new to both parks and it was very magical. Harry Potter is amazing and you will not be disappointed.
