Hi there! Thank you for your review! I'm thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your visit to Universal's Islands of Adventure! I agree, those attractions are amazing! I love all of the detail that goes into the queues as well! Make sure you ride the Jurassic World VelociCoaster next time, it's my favorite! Thank you again! See you soon! - Victoria

A disaster
Sep 2021 • Family
Universal Orlando - do not go !!!! Severe maintenance problems at three main facilities in the park (Haggrid , velocicoaster, escape from Gringot). Waiting times for more than an hour and a half to each facility, ending with a message that the facility has technical problems and is therefore closed. Half of the day was spent waiting aimlessly. No compensation. No consideration. Management and maintenance issues. In addition to the lack of a limited number of guests allowed to enter therefore the place is blown up. they offered an express pass for a future visit to the facility (Of course if you fund the cost of entry and all the other expenses to get there ...). Save your money and hours of frustration and nerves. I have been to other sites in the past and know well how to compare this "experience" to another experience.

Fun way to spend a day
Sep 2021
In early September 2021 I decided to pay a visit to Universal Studios and Islands Of Adventure.

The Port Of Entry is the first thing you see when entering the park and had several shops and restaurants but not much else. Marvel Superhero Island is the only place to find the main Marvel characters in Florida. I didn't ride Hulk but the Storm accelerator ride was your typical spinning car ride but themed to X Men and fun. The Spiderman ride was fun but a little jarring when the animation in the queue and preshow had the animation of the Spiderman cartoon from the 90s but the ride itself had modern CGI animation so it will catch you off guard a bit.

Toon Lagoon was nice throwback to old comic strips and older cartoons like Dudley Do Right, Popeye, Blondie, Betty Boop, and Rocky And Bullwinkle

The only thing in Skull Island is the Reign Of Kong attraction but it was a fun ride.

In the Jurassic park area you can take a river ride around the are and has an area for smaller kids in Camp Jurassic. You can also meet a raptor and there's the E-ticket Velocicoaster.

The Lost Continent has what is considered one of the best theme park restaurants but the Posideon's Fury stunt show wasn't running at the time.

My favorite area of the park was Suess Landing themed to Dr. Suess. Who doesn't love Dr,. Suess? There a a One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish spinner ride and a Cat In The Hat dark ride. The Caro-Suess-el was down when I was there but the elevated trolley ride around the land gave a great view of the park.

The main draw here is The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter Hogsmeade. You can see Hogwarts castle and going inside for an exciting flight with Harry and pals. Flight Of The Hippogriff is a fun but short coaster and Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure was a fun ride through the Hogwarts grounds. You don't have to be a Harry potter fan to enjoy this area.

All in all I doubt I'd make this a destination again but a fun away to spend a day in the area.

This seems to be the perfect time to visit. Low wait times, short lines for dining and shopping.

I really appreciated the discounted tickets for military active and retired. It's the absolute best I have seen ever! I've shared the information about it with my friends, online social groups, and the corporate veterans association I'm on the comity of. I'm trying to squeeze in another trip this year, because wow!

Come on a weekday not in the summer for a perfect day
Sep 2021 • Couples
Amazing park experience. Came around when it was “4/10” on crowd calendar, and the peak time I saw for a ride was less than an hour. VelociCoaster was the best coaster I’ve ever been on, absolutely wonderful. Love the speed up. Hogwarts was magical (loved the butter beer), and I really enjoy the water rides, and they WILL GET YOU SOAKED. Was disappointed by the shows and meet with a raptor though, but they’re very small. Hulk and Spider-Man STILL great. Love the gimmicks and surprises from Hagrid ride, even if it probably leaves it down more often. GO FOR HAGRID AND VELOCICOASTER FIRST
Really enjoyed all the park employees’ service. Was very fun, would come back!

Thank you Universal for not requiring masks. Compared to Disney, it was like a night and day experience. Seeing our children’s smiling faces on rides was definitely a plus and everyone was more cheerful and enthusiastic. This will definitely be our choice for our next vacation.

THANK YOU Universal FOR NOT REQUIRING MASKS... we were able to breathe oxygen and loved every minute in your parks!!!
Aug 2021
So nice to see that only 25% of the people in the parks were actually wearing masks. We were so thankful that masks were encouraged but not required. THANK YOU UNIVERSAL MANAGEMENT FOR ALLOWING people the CHOICE OF masking up or BREATHING OXYGEN!!! WE WERE ABLE TO BREATHE AND HAD A BLAST AT BOTH PARKS!!!

Always amazing!
Aug 2021
We’ve been here several times, but each is special and different. Velocicoaster was by far the best coaster. My daughter and her boyfriend rode on it over and over. The lines and wait times were incredibly short…10 minutes if that…which was perfect for us. While I waited for them, I had fun at the discovery center. Lots of activities to play around with, like doing “ultrasounds” on dino eggs. I did, however, agree to go on Hagrid’s Motor Bike Adventure after some peer pressure. As a non-coaster rider, what a thrill! I did scream most of the time, but a happy scream. The ride did have a malfunction, but it really wasn’t a big deal and we got to re-ride right away. We did 2 super full days at both parks and always have a great time. The $900 price tag for 3 of us is a shocker, but what can you do? The memories are worth it

Fun but mostly for older kids
Aug 2021
We went with our 9 and 5 year old. The 9 year old was below 54 inches so she couln't go on everything. The 5 year old was below 42 in, so she could not go on most things. If you go with kids 10+ years old, then its safe to say they can get on most, if not all rides.

FYI, the express pass does not apply to Hagrids, Velociraptor and Ptyranadon rides.

Be prepared to get soaked on Popeye's water ride.

The park does close all outdoor rides if there is threat of lightning, which was about 30 mins every afternoon when were there

Great for thrill seekers
Oct 2020
Islands of Adventure is the place to go for thrill rides. All of the roller coasters are excellent. Hagrids Motor bike adventure is worth the wait. I'd wait 2 hour again for that in heartbeat. The hulk is also still a great ride. There are other fun rides as well and it's overall just a really fun time.
