Universal is amazing, so much to see and do, Our favourite area had to be Harry Potter, it is truly magical. The Simpsons area has been expanded since we were last there and is great!

My son and husband had an absolute blast at Islands of Adventure. They can keep going ride after ride. However, I am only able to enjoy in smaller doses. They love the thrill rides such as the Hulk coaster. While my favorites are Dr. Doom,...More
