Absolutely love island of adventure it's one of my favorite parks to visit while in Orlando. Loads of different restaurants to eat in around the park and reasonably priced. Lockers are available to rent thought out the park, some at the rides are free but you can only use for a limited time. Each land has their own personalized gift... More

Great time on last night of Synergy. Park was opened exclusively to conference attendees 7-11pm. The staff at IOA went above and beyond. They had street food vendor's to the 9's. The highlight was riding Spiderman with an open Heineken making an awesome ride into an amazing experience. Only complaint is this park will not even consider letting empty seats... More

We had a great time spending 3 days at the Universal parks. Although we can for the Harry Potter experience, we enjoyed all the other things the park had to offer. Great rides and atmosphere and themes were integrated so well into all aspects of the park. Plenty of places to stop and sit if needed. The one thing I... More

Once you get past the turnstiles, you have entered Port of Entry, this area has a history and a story to tell. Voices can be heard from the upper windows, many things to shop for when you return, for now you are on your way to many adventures. Turn right, turn left, which way to go when you reach the...

You will be running from one adventure to the next! Whatever your thrill level is there is something for everyone! My absolute favorite is Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey! I hate high speed rides, coasters and this fit in my comfort zone. The big disappointment was the cost to eat at the marvel restaurant... $15 for a burger, fries... More

We visited the Islands of adventure several times during our recent stay in Orlando and as usual it did not disappoint. The ride times were great and we managed to do them all several times

The park has been kept up and had some additions since our last visit. We enjoyed our visit here. The new Kong attraction is pretty darned cool. The world of Harry Potter is still worth the visit and immerses you into the story. The Jurassic Park area needs some serious updating. Where is Jurrasic World?? The new effects (old effects...

Plenty to see and do. Roller coaster are brilliant. Popeye thunder river be prepared to get soaked, and I mean soaked. King Kong ride enjoyable. Hubby rode the hulk 4 times but I steered clear. Plenty of places to eat on Universal City Walk. Lovely fish restaurant.
