Great park for pre-teen and up. Only downside for us was that one of the roller coasters had a 54in height requirement and our child is only 53in. She was disappointed, but we just told her we'd have to come back, which she thinks is a great plan. Really fun park to visit. Lots of walking if you want to... More

Visited on Christmas Eve. To my surprise, it was not overcrowded. The wait time fir rides were less than 45mins. Affordable options for food.

We loved everything about our trip to Universal, well recommended if you have kids around the 9 upwards age but I suppose there could be things for younger ones. It is so hot there in August but a lot of queueing is indoors or under fans, go on a water ride to cool down!

That is for sure and the best part I visited. You must try the Hulk roller coaster, the dinosaur attractions and the Spiderman.

Loved the Harry Potter rides and Hogwart's Express. Great to have the fast pass as there were rain showers and we could duck into rides quickly when it started raining. Teenagers loved it--will go back.

Universal was so fun! So many rides, shops, restaurants. You name it, the have it! Lines were short, the park was clean, and it was amazing. Every inch of the park is amazing.

This was our 1st visit to Universal! We Ubered from the hotel. Our Uber driver was knowledgeable of the area and got us in quicker by an alternate route than if we had driven in and dropped us off at the front entrance. The first security guard we encountered got our day off to a good start by calling attention... More

We always go to Disney and this is not Disney - the customer service is not the same. However the Harry Potter area is amazing. The rides are mostly 3D simulator types in this park which is cool but more actual rides would be nice. We also enjoyed the dr Seuss area.

Harry Potter at adventure park Orlando is one of the newest attractions, to see this go early as very busy even in low season, As for value for money it is very expensive, for an exsamlple a key ring from Harry Potter is $14:99 plus tax they want you to pay for extras on top of the ticket price. You... More
