  • I've never had so much fun in my life! Two days full of adrenaline, happiness, wildness and joy! Island of Adventure has it all! I recommend a Park-to-Park ticket and take advantage of it during the week. This resort will enjoy both child and adult! Thank you for an exceptional experience!
  • Great place to take kids and teens as well as parents can have a great time. Lots of character meet and greats. Reasonable food prices, although I'd recommend going to a local place for better food. Rides are really spread out so be prepared to walk a lot. There's a Harry Potter train you can take to get to universal, much like a tram. Recommend to get there early and leave once it gets hot. Then go back later at dusk. Incredible to spend time in the evening with the fireworks, lights, cool breeze. Tends to get really busy so be prepared to wait on lines although wait times are usually much quicker than posted on the app or at the ride. So don't get discouraged. Bring in some snacks and water bottles to help save some money.
