Universal Resort Orlando - Islands of Adventures (USA) Reviews
Newest Review: ... as the hulk, xmen and spiderman. Throughout the day there are loads of characters heading through the island available for meet and greets. There is a Hulk rollercoaster, which is quite intense and not suitable for small children. (This rollercoaster also featured in the film house on haunted hill). Another of the main attractions in this island is spiderman which is a 3D simulator ride - this ride is incredibly clever and one not to be missed! The next island you come too is toon lagoon. This is based on some of the famous comic characters - such as pop eye! There is a good selection of shops and places to eat in this area and i think t... more

Islands of adventure is the second of the two parks in the Universal Orlando resort. It was opened in 1999 after a major expansion project. The theme park in my opinion is nothing short of brilliant! To be honest its a more aimed at Adults and older children than the Disney parks but kids of all ages will enjoy it. Islands of adventure is split into 5 "Islands" plus the port of entry, arranged around a picturesque lake. Port of Entry is the parks entrance area, it has a couple of places to eat, a shop, a place to pick up photographs and most importantly it has an attraction information board. If you go clockwise around the park the first island you ... Read the complete review

This theme park is amazing! The park is divided into different "worlds" Marvel, Jurassic Park, Dr Seuss' landing and The Lost Continent and Toon Lagoon...and they have left nothing out. One of my personal favorites is the Jurassic Park area. They have the 4x4s out of the movies and the huge model T-Rex coming out of the vegetation (which is also themed like Jurassic Park.) You even enter this world through the Jurassic Park gates! There is also the Welcome Centre from the movie there, or a copy of it, which houses a few shops, eateries and some interactive exhibits. The Incredible Hulk Roller Coaster is not to be missed! If you like ... Read the complete review

We have been Three times now and always have a great time. If you are a frill seeker this is the best park in orlando for you as the rides are amazing. The incredible hulk ride is our favourite you can't imagine how fast you set off on this. Spiderman is a great ride / simulator I get motion sickness but was fine on this. Love the duelling dragons and Jurassic park river adventure (keep your eyes open for some real scares). Be warned the water rides here are great fun but you might as well go swimming you will get very wet, fine when it is real hot but not so much at other times, we always pack a plastic poncho from the supermarket, you get people laughing at you ...

Islands of Adventure Theme Park in Orlando is one of the best theme parks that I have ever been to. While is was not cheap to get into the park (it was over $50 for just myself), I will say it was well worth it. My favorite ride while I was there was the Incredible Hulk Rollercoaster. You start your journey heading up a steep hill in a tunnel and about half the way up you speed up really fast causing you to fly through the tunnel and into a corkscrew. Very fun. I also loved the Spiderman ride. It was an indoor ride that was three D and it was amazing. I could ride it ten times in a row and not get sick of it. We did have to wait in line for a while ...

We always visit Islands of adventure when we go on holiday to Orlando. There is something there for the whole family, whether its a gentle ride through Dr Suess' cat in the Hat or a rip roaring adventure on duel where two roller coasters go at the same time and get extremely close to each other, you'll be sure to have a fun time at Universals Islands of Adventure. My personal favourites are Spiderman which is a kind of simulater ride but you do actually move around back and forth in a cart. The big screen grafics make you feel like you are really jumping and swirling between skyscrapers in the city, its a bit jerky but an absolute thrill. The other ... Read the complete review
