"Awesome rides, less accommodating than Disney"
July 2019
Universal has awesome rides, the Incredible Hulk ride is outstanding. The wizarding world of Harry Potter is super well done and fun. They don’t let you take a backpack cooler inside which sucked, and the kids directing parking don’t know what they’re doing, but those are minor complaints. Escape from Gringots ride is also amazing.

"First time at Universal"
July 2019
Bought a 2 day 2 park pass; checking in through kiosk was quick and easy (but you must have a credit card matching the name on the order); Wish we had bought the express passes as the lines were 90 min plus wait so we didn't get to do as much as we wanted to. Would like to go back and spend time at City Walk. Didn't even know that was a thing until we were there. Beautiful park, kept very clean.

"All the marvel Characters was amazing"
July 2019
Universal Studio Florida was the best theme park, we have ever visited.
My Two sons' and I can't wait to go back again this summer on our next family vacation.
Universal Studio Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure went above and beyond to make sure every child had amazing experience.
When Captain America and Spider-man at Universal's Islands of Adventure, walked up to my son and gave him a high five.
My son almost, passed out he is a huge fan of Captain America and Spiderman
He was so star struck, by his favorite marvel super hero.
And then we, rolled the spider-man ride inside of a theater it was awesome.
To every marvel character, who went above and beyond to meet with my son.
Thank You, he has so many amazing memories to last a lifetime!

This was my first visit back after all the new shops, and rides have been added in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. And I was not disappointed. The shops, and the rides where beyond what I expected. But the Train was the best.

Now I really liked the park, Amazing Spider-Man brilliant, but I couldn’t tell you what the rollercoasters were like, I didn’t fit the seats, why is it that Sea World, Busch Gardens and Disney are able to cater to larger guests but Universal do not?

"Best amusement park in my life"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 13, 2019 NEW
Orlando’s Universal Studio and Island of adventure were the best parks I have ever been to. We bought a 2 park 2 day (park to park) ticket. Whit this type we could ride the Hogwarts Express, which itself is an attraction, between the two parks. First we wisited Island of adventure. As soon as we stepped through the parks gates our jaw dropped: the scenes are amazing. We felt like children again. The rides were fantastic. We felt thrill and adrenalin before and during the rides. Even the waiting areas are really amazing so even if you have to stand in line, you got lots of things to see during. We were there on a saturday and sunday, but we had to wait for only one attraction (maybe because it’s the newest): Hagrid’s magical creatures motorbike adventure. But the waiting area has lots of different scenes so that hour that we spent waiting wasn’t boring. A lot of waiting areas are inside with air conditioning. We really liked this attraction and a lot more (Hulk, Revenge of the mummy, Harry Potter and the forbidden journey, Rip Ride) these we tried at least twice, because we could, nobody counts ☺️ I would really recommend it for everyone, all the attractions, even the ones that may seem not that interesting have something to add to the experience. I could write a lot more of these two days but it wouldn’t reflect how great it was. Orlando is amazing as well, the restaurants, the people living there only add to the greatness of the whole thing.
