Intense Rides! – i love this place! the rides are way awesome and definately a great place to go with a group of friends and one of my favorite places in florida. the scene there is beautiful and food and staff are pretty great.
Awesome....IF you haven't been Disneyfied – If you have a open mind, and haven't been brainwashed by too many Small World rides, this is the park for you. I've been to WDW (18) trips since it opened, but now I go to Universal Orlando. IMHO, the parks are for pre-teens and up, the resorts are gorgeous and affordable, and the Preferred Annual Pass is the best deal there is for a theme park anywhere. Definitely my #1 reason to go to Florida.
Thrills a minute – This park is full of thrilling rides. Words cannot describe how exciting Hulk, Dueling Dragons, Spider Man, etc. are. Staying at an on-site hotel gives you front of the line on every ride. City Walk and Universal Studios are very close to walk over to. The Spider Man character is really great to kids and plays the part perfectly.
Excellent – I went here Thanksgiving, and it was really fun. Not the best park I've been to of course (nothing beats Cedar Point) but it's definitely up there. The Hulk was cool (but again, not the best I've ridden).
Families get their fill of adventure on five islands inhabited by superheroes, cartoons and dinosaurs at this theme park. – The Appeal
Universal Studios' Islands of Adventure is an enormous, thickly decorated smorgasbord of thrill rides and fantasies come alive. The entrance, appropriately called the Port of Entry, gives a strong indication of what to expect from the park: incredibly detailed buildings, towers, festive flags, vibrant colors and streets filled with vendors and performers.
Facts and Features
There are five islands in all: Marvel Super Hero Island, Toon Lagoon, Jurassic Park, the Lost Continent and Seuss Landing. With shows like "The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman" and rides like the Caro-seuss-el, the park keeps the entire family busy.
GREAT PARK!! – I ONLY HAVE 2 WORDS TO SAY ABOUT THIS PARK. THE HULK!!! THIS RIDE IS THE BEST ROLLER COASTER THAT I HAVE EVER BEEN ON. PREPARE FOR AN UNEXPECTED, BUT NICE SURPRISE ONCE RIDE STARTS. THE DAY WE WENT IT WAS VERY HOT OUTSIDE SO I WAS A LITTLE FRUSTRATED WITH LINES, BUT THATS SOMETHING YOU HAVE TO EXPECT. OTHER THAN THAT, THIS PARK IS GREAT!! THE DUELING DRAGONS ARE COOL TOO. I SUGGEST GETTING ON THE ICE DRAGON, I THINK IT GOES FASTER THAN FIRE DRAGON.
Great Rides, Good Atmosphere – The Islands of Adventure designers certainly got one thing right--the rides. Too bad they didn't realize that theme parks are more than just rides. We bought the 5 days for the price of 2 for our family of 5. Only 2 of us (my older son and I) even came back for the 2nd day. Wasted $120. It was a bargain though since we all had such a great time at Walt Disney World.
(OK, the Jurassic Park area was great but that was really it).
ORLANDO'S BEST PARK!!! – This is the best park in Orlando..HANDS DOWN!! Great rides, fun atmosphere. This park broke the mold of Orlando's theme park industry. The park is family oriented, but the thrill rides here are actually THRILL RIDES! THE BEST rides are here. I just hope they keep expanding on it and add more roller coasters. I think its a shame that the "roller coaster capital" is in Ohio and not in Orlando, the "theme park capital of the world", where I personally think it should belong, especially where the "World's Best" rollercoaster is located. When you have a good thing going, try to keep it up and surpass ALL of the competition.
Islands of Adventure – The best theme park I've ever been to.
The HULK is the best roller coaster you could ever ride in your life!
Sunshine – Islands of Adventure has the world's greatest roller coasters. THe Hulk, Spiderman, and Popeye wer my favorites. Jurrasic Park was also exciting. My kids loved Dr. Seuss Land.
