We loved our Universal visit! The absolute best. They really know how to do it up. Can't wait to go back. You'll want to go to both parks.

My son is 8. He was never that excited about Disney when we would go. We figured we would give Universal a try now that we felt he was old enough to enjoy it. So we did this for his birthday and he was happy to go. When he got there and got to see everything there was to do... More

Lines were long, tickets were expensive, place was crowded. I wasn't overly impressed but did like Universal more so than Disney

As a family, we enjoyed the Islands of Adventure more. I have two younger preteen girls who do not enjoy the virtual chases experienced in most of the Universal rides. The dueling dragons at Hogwarts is probably the most fun rollercoaster. The Hulk, the Flight of the Hippogriff and the Ripsaw Falls were all favorites as well. Again- fast passes... More

The Seuss trolley operator told us what lines to get in. All five of us were confused by the way she phrased the instructions. Let me point out that we are... More
