  • My ‘just turned teenager’ son loves it. The thrill of the rides gave him satisfaction. I just wish less quick turns on simulation i was dizzy after.  more »
  • This was the perfect way to end a week with our girls. We did a Disney Cruise and then decided to add 3 days at Universal Studios. It was great! The girls loved it (2 Tweens) - my husband and I loved ...  more »
  • Universal's Islands of Adenture is a fun park for an older crowd than Disney's Magic Kingdom. The different Islands are very well made, of course, with Harry Potter at the top followed by Marvel (if y...  more »

  • Amazing place for people of all ages. So much creativity. Team has taken lots of effort to make this place a wonder. If you are fan of Harry Potter and fantasy you will definitely like this place. The shows are amazing. The place is very crowded during holiday season so plan accordingly.
  • We had a grand time and everything was amazing!! It was an unforgettable time for my wife and I. Greatest thanks to Celina!! She did a caricature of my wife and I to add to our 10 year anniversary memory! Truly a gifted artist and wonderful person! Just watching her study our faces and asking us about our time there made the picture truly remarkable! The park staff was truly cordial amidst the masses at every attraction. I don’t know how they do it but everything was a wonderful experience to partake. Thanks for the memories!!
  • One of the best places on earth. I couldn't believe that I reached this place. This is like your dream land which you have only dreamt about. This place everything to make you happy and feel excited. It is a wonderland which you will never forget. Universal Islands everywhere in the world are like that, be it Singapore, Orlando or anywhere. Amazing, Awesome, Beautiful, Tremendous place to be in. You will enjiy here with your friends and family.
  • This place is amazing and great to take kids of all ages. The Harry Potter attractions, buildings, shops, etc were mind blowing! They did such a good job! The rides are fun and with the Unlimited Express Pass, The wait is minimal if you even wait at all. The reason I only rated as 3 stars is because the Unlimited Express Pass was significantly higher priced than what I had seen online. Not sure if it was because of the dates attended? And after paying the astronomical charge for the pass, there were still a few attractions you couldn't even use it on. Pricing for food, beverage, and souveniers is absurdly high, but anyone who has come to one of the Disney or Universal theme parks, knows this already and can plan accordingly. Great trip overall, just gouged the bank account!!
  • This park, along with Universal Hollywood Studios, are my favorite amusement parks hands-down. My mom and I had a great time experiencing world-class entertainment, modern high-tech rides, and a pleasant atmosphere. The staff were friendly and managed the large crowds well. The rides are thrilling and fun. It is amazing what they can do with rides now. I would come back to the park in a heart-beat.
