  • Already knew the park but without the new King Kong attraction. Everything done to enchant the visitor with too much reality is security.

  • The theme park is excellent, definitely recommend at least devote two days to this park since it has different areas furnished according to different productions from Universal Studios. The attractions are very good, abundant experience and technology 3D and/or 4DX. A remarkable area, and more remarkable is Hogsmeade and Hogwarts, the nightly show Castle is great and more enjoying it accompanied a butter beer, definitely a "must" to visit this park. The most recommended: island of Kong, Hulk, Hogsmeade.

  • Me and my wife attended universal studios. Its not as busy as the disney parks which means at the time of year the max wait time was 25 minutes. Which was great. The park is clean and tidy and the sta...  more »

  • Had a blast at universal. The lines go by pretty quick not fast but you won't be in line for hours. In 1 day we were able to get on all the rides and also had time to Eat and look around. Everyone who works there are awesome. One of my favorites places I had more fun here than i did at Disney land. I would for sure go again no doubt
  • So much fun!!! We were deciding between Disney and Islands of Adventure for our summer trip but decided that this was going to be more grown up fun and I’m glad that we did. I highly recommend that you download the app so that you can see the wait times for the rides throughout the day. Also, get there early to get through the popular rides with much shorter wait times! There were lots of places to grab quick bites to eat and many CLEAN restrooms so you never had to wait in line. It rained on and off most of the day but we bought ponchos and while waiting for the rides to open back up we ate and shopped for souvenirs. I loved that the preferred parking saved us minutes of walking especially at the end of the day when we were exhausted and really liked that there was a lot to do even before you paid to get into the park. There were lots of restaurants, movies and shops if you want to enjoy the atmosphere and people without paying to get into the actual park. I think it would be great for a fun date night if you’re spending any time in Orlando.
  • Best park ever! My personal favorite and would recommend it above universal studios. The Harry Potter world is AMAZING! If you visit you MUST stay for the light show at night time, truly magical! I also recommend the Spider-Man ride, the reign of Kong & Jurassic world. I highly recommend that you get the express pass, it’s so worth the money you pay for. Truly an awesome experience.
  • Had a great time, went for my birthday/Labor Day weekend! Of course there were crowds however, the fast pass was worth the extra spend. From 1 pm to closing we waited in zero lines! As always, The Hulk was our #1. First time experiencing, Poseidon, wow! Was not at all what we were expecting and it blew us away. Talented actress & great effects!
  • This park is awesome. Safe, clean and fun! We spent a day at the park and everything about this place from the parking lot attendants, to the ride operators, the ticket sellers was outstanding. We were afraid that Islands of Adventure would be too 'Young' for the 12-13 year old crowd, but they had a lot of fun. Us adults did too! Everything about this park is about attention to detail. We rode just about everything on a Sunday, which to me seemed like the least busiest day. Never felt unsafe for the girls to Explore around and 'do their own thing'. There is security cameras everywhere in the park. Take advantage of the 'free hour for lockers for rides that go upside down like Hulk, etc. Great time at the park! Can't wait to go back.
