Universal Studios Islands of Adventure (Orlando) Reviews
Description:Universal Orlando Resort, Florida.
Newest Review: ... called The Incredible Hulk! This was probably my most favourite roller coaster in Orlando. We queued for a front seat which took about half hour longer than the regular queue, but it was well worth it. It takes off at high speed, has loads of loops and reaches speeds of 65 mph! Another favourite in Marvel Super Hero Island was 'The Amazing Adventures Of Spiderman'. You wear 3D glasses and sit ... more

I recently returned from 2 magical weeks in Orlando, Florida. During our stay we visited many theme parks, including Universal Studios Islands Of Adventure. There are 2 Universal Studios parks in Orlando - the original Universal Studios (which first opened in 1990) and the newer Universal Studios Islands Of Adventure (which first opened in 1999). This review will focus on the newest Universal Studios park. We caught a taxi from our hotel and back again. There is a taxi rank right outside the parks and we didn't have to wait for a taxi. Car parking is also available for $15.00 per vehicle, per day. Universal Studios is nearby all the other main ... Read the complete review

As part of our fantastic family holiday of a lifetime to the amazing World of Disney in Orlando we also paid for 14 day flexticket plus passes to Universal Studios parks as part of the package bought through Virgin Holidays. Our tickets allowed 14 day continuous access to Universal Studios, Universal's Islands of Adventure, Aquatica, SeaWorld Orlando, Wet n'Wild Orlando and Busch Gardens at Tampa Bay. These tickets were £203 per adult and £191 for children. So for 6 of us were quite a lot of money! My wife had researched Universal Studios quite a lot before we arrived in Florida and despite visiting the park 20+ years ago with her son and parents wanted to ... Read the complete review

I have been to Florida a number of times and each year I spend less and less days at the theme parks. However, if there is one ticket that I always purchase it is a ticket to Universal's Islands of Adventure theme park. I'm not sure this is the best park for families with young children but if your kids are aged 9 or over then this park is superb. The park itself is one of two Universal parked, the other being Universal Studios, and is by far the best. It is split into five different lands, each with their own character and rides. My favourite ride is Hulk which has an incredible start but there are just so many good rides. When going to ... Read the complete review

If you like theme parks you'll love Islands of Adventure at Universal Resort, Orlando. Whereas the Disney Parks are more catered toward the younger family with small children, Islands of Adventure is definitely where most of the "white knuckle" rides are in Orlando! Possibly the only park with scarier rides is Seaworld. And with the addition of a new land, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, this summer its now even bigger and better! I was lucky enough to go here 2 days after the new Harry Potter land opened - it was madness! People queuing for hours and hours just to get into the land let alone queuing to get on the rides! All well worth it ... Read the complete review

I am a theme park junkie, and when we went on holiday to Florida in October 1999, I was delighted and ovewhelmed with the huge variety of attractions to satisfy my need for thrills! Universal Studios Islands of Adventure was, by far, my favourite of all the theme parks we visited, in my opinion, outdoing Disney, Seaworld and Busch Gardens, although these parks were also awesome. Universal Islands of Adventure opened in May 1999, as an aditional park adjacent to the hugely popular Universal Studios. The two parks are seperate attractions, although you can get tickets that allow you to hop between parks, but you would not see everything in one day. When ... Read the complete review
