We had a good day here. Used the early entry (8am start) Ro explore the Harry Potter part but found that the best time to be there was actually about 9am when the early rush had dropped off but before all of the general entry people had made it to that part of the park. Old tip but a good... More

Had a great time experiencing the newest Universal Studios attractions. Transformers is a terrific ride with great visual effects. Diagonal Alley was worth losing Amity and the Jaws ride. Escape from Gringot's is a roller coaster ahead of its time! Definite must sees! Looking forward to Jimmy Fallon's Race Through New York to open in 2017 and Fast & Furious... More

Until they added a Harry Potter section to Universal Studios, this was my favorite park. This park has more thrill rides and coasters and is geared more toward older children and adults. The Dr. Suess area is good for the smaller kids though. The Hulk is one of my favorite coasters anywhere, such a smooth ride. Everything in Hogsmeade and... More

Rides here were enjoyed by multigenerational family. I thought 1 full day wouldn't be enough time for this park, but it was.

Universal has 2 parks, Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios. Both are fun, each with their own themes. Islands has Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, Dr. Seuss Land, Super Hero Island and the HULK Rollercoaster. A lot of the rides are 3D simulators which are REALLY fun. Universal has rides such as Shrek, Minion Mayhem, Rip Ride Rocket, Men In Black.... More

Great rides. Get fast pass. Worth the extra $'s for quick entry to all rides. Staff were friendly & helpful. Plenty of shopping options. Plenty of food options, but not healthy options. Great for all ages.

Get the unlimited Express pass when you visit this theme park to avoid queuing for too long. It would cost additional 50 dollars for that. I believe the park has increased the price of entrance tickets as compared to when I last visited a few years back. Enjoyed the new Kong ride, it was really cute. At the same time,... More

Harry Potter World was the best part of Universal for us! Loved all the details, magic, shops and rides! The Hogwarts Express was amazing! It's worth buying the park hopper so you can take the train to Islands of Adventure and Hogsmeade. ***IF YOU ARE PRONE TO MOTION SICKNESS*** *The ride "Escape from Gringotts" is a wonderful ride and not...
