Had an amazing time . Plenty to do for all the family, the queues were longer than normal as we went in the Easter holidays. My personal favourite ride was the hulk

We enjoyed this park more than Universal Studios. The Harry Potter ride was very well done and we are not fans, but really enjoyed the ride. Most areas of the park have some very cool things to see and do.

Very disappointing that there’s several rides ( including the new Harry Potter rides) that if you are a certain height or shape you can’t go on. I’m on the larger size so knew I would have problems but my husband was willing to join our daughter on the rides ( he’s average build) but being just over 6ft he was too tall. In this day and age and technology the rides should be more accommodating for all. So we didn’t get to go on the ripesaw falls, two of the new Harry Potter rides and because I’m the one who usually does the big roller coasters with my daughter ( no problems at Disney) my daughter was getting upset for me as I couldn’t get on that we gave up. So it was an expensive 14day ticket each we only visited twice

We still wish our Guests to make meaningful memories while they vacation with us, and I apologize this was not the case on your trip. I will document your feedback to share it with our management teams. If you would like to discuss this in greater detail or provide additional feedback, please reach out to our Guest Services department at 407-224-4233 option 4 or email GuestServices@universalorlando.com.

This was such a fun park! We went in July and there was something for each of us!
I'm not a big roller coaster fan, but my friends are. So they had a blast while I spent most of my time running around the Harry Potter section. We both loved the Jurassic section! The hot, humid weather really helps transport you.

I do wish they would do something about the Hogwarts Express. I was really disappointed that you had to have a ticket for both parks to get on it.

If you like our love Disney... Be ready to be disappointed. This isn't the organized chaos Disney is equipped four. Here it's just chaos!
The food is terrible and it's the same crap throughout both parks... Popcorn, hotdog, coke, churros, and pretzels.
Park may be open till 10 but expect everything to start shutting down at 9!
Not enough workers to help move traffic along through the park. At Disney people assist with areas to keep from having bottlenecks. Not here.
Upside, I love the Hulk!!! Kong was awesome as well.
