Had a cracking time , went 3 times in our 2 wk hols from U.K. Harry Potter is amazing as is hulk,Spider-Man ,Kong and Jurassic park . Had such a laugh on water rides ( Popeye and Dudley do right ) but you don't get wet - you get drenched !

We got a 3 day 2 park pass for universal and had a great time. Our passes included one hour early admission and you should definitely use that time if you get the package. Harry Potter was very busy but fun. Try the butterbeer and buy an interactive wand to cast spells in the park. The guys loved the hulk... More

This is definitely in my top 10 greatest amusement parks and the second visit for me. Overall this is a great place for all ages and even worth your time if you have teens. Price: Prices are a bit you to be honest but that's only if you compare it with European prices. For the total you got a full... More

We loved the Harry Potter part of the park. As most reviews are directed towards that, though, I thought I'd write about something else. Our longest ride wait was for the King Kong ride. We stood in the dark, winding line for well over two hours..much longer than predicted. The ride is spectacular, and worth the wait, but in retrospect... More

We came to Universal in October to escape Ohio. My brother, sister in law, and I do a trip every year together. Universal was fun to experience but the wait times for rides were ridiculously long. Even when you thought the line was about to end, you turned the corner and there was another line. We attended the halloween horror... More

The jewel in the crown is 'The Forbidden Journey', the single best ride we've ever experienced, but elsewhere the park has a variety of top notch roller coasters and other attractions.

This is a late review of a day there in October 2016, the day before Hurricane Matthew hit Orlando. It rained all day which was no big deal as it was warm and so getting wet on the Barges, Ripsaw Falls and Jurassic Park River Adventure did not matter too much. Take a towel! The Park also closed early by... More
