Out family of 9 visited the park and Universal over Thanksgiving. It was wonderful. The rides were great and we traveled between the two parks via the train and it was so so easy and quick. Can't say enough great things about the park. Favorite for our family was surely Harry Potter and the adventure that goes along with that... More

We spent 4 days between the two universal parks. The train between them should not be missed! There is always a line for the train but it is worth it. You are entertained the entire way. The rides are fun, Universal employees coordinate the lines by adding single rider lines, and several rides have video entertainment while you wait. The... More

Just my opinion but so much more bang for your buck than Disney World. The attention to detail throughout both the parks was stunning. There is plenty to do for both big and little people. The food was even good for a theme park and not too terribly expensive. Will definitely be going back!

We had a wonderful time in the islands of adventure park. We spent 4 days between wet n wild, universal studios, and the island of adventure. The guys in the arcade are awesome. We left with tons of prizes, stuffed animals , and candy. Can't wait until next year.

It's mostly 3D theatre experiences, but Harry Potter was amazing. A few good rides. Beautiful to look at, but not enough to do

The customer service is always stellar. The rides are phenomenal. The food is average but I don't go for the food. I both the 2 IOA pass and tried to do it all in one day. I was exhausted and it rained in the evening which causes the outdoor attractions to close. I never even touched any of the inside... More

Waste of money. Most places are for eating or shopping. Big area for small kids. I expected more from this place.

There are lots of interesting rides! I went there on Thanksgiving and wait time at each ride was fair (all less than 60min), and there was an app that you can check wait time for all rides. Also most rides had stories which avoid you to get bored while waiting. I shouldn't talk too much about it - you should... More

My Husband and I absolutely love Universal's Islands of Adventure! It is a great park for both kids and adults. We love that we can ride roller coasters, drink, watch shows, and ride more rides all at the same time. We went on one of the most busiest times of the year and the lines weren't that bad! I think...
