Probably the best park I ever visited. The great rides like King Kong, Jurassic park, Harry Potter and more. But the small ones are really good to . You should definitely try "The Dudley's do right's ripsaw falls". It's the best tree-trunks water ride I ever did.

We took our grandson here and we all enjoyed everything from the ride on the Hulk to the many other attractions. Betty Boop and the Simpsons and Spiderman and many more, lines were long but we had a great time.

I prefer this side of Universal however both are a lot of fun. The Islands of Adventure has the super hero section, King Kong, Jurassic Park, Dr. Suess, HARRY POTTER and some other attractions I cant remember. We enjoyed the sections I mentioned above the most- if you have kids, toon town would probably be a blast for you. Get... More

My favorite parts of Islands of Adventure were the Super Heroes (I love Captain America), Jurassic Park, and the new King Kong ride. Growing up in the 60's I watched all of the original King Kong movies, and Skull Island did not disappoint, in fact we went on the ride twice at my request! We also went on the Jurassic... More

We went the week of Thanksgiving and had a blast! Make sure you get park to park tickets if you want to ride the Harry Potter train. Also, I recommend the fast pass if it is a busy time. We never waited more than 20 minutes in any line except Harry Potter rides (fast pass does not apply to these).... More

This is a smaller park, and you dont really need a full day to see most of the attractions... we did NOT have small children, so we only spent about 6 hours, and that was enough time to see all the attractions. the park was not crowded and we did not have to wait more than 10 minutes on any...

Our of all the theme parks, this is my favourite. Firstly, the walk up to IOS is exciting. There are loads of restaurants and shops and the atmosphere is so exciting. There is security who check your bags so you feel very safe. This park has the best rides. The Hulk coaster is amazing and the new King Kong ride... More

Check online for best days to visit with least crowds. Our kids were just old enough to ride the bigger coasters but not all. Rides did shut down at 5pm due to "risk" of thunderstorms Buy the all day food package -- worth it as one drink was $4.50
