This theme park is my hands down absolute favorite. If you enjoy thrill rides this is a must. The best roller coasters in O-Town. Great rides, beautiful scenery and even excellent in park food.

We love universal! We go every October. I have a 17 year and a 10 year old who couldn't imagine going anywhere else. They like it more than Disney.

My kids loved Universal. We went during March break so it was very busy but we managed to do everything across the two parks in two days. This one has Hogsmede so was a lot of fun. I think the non Harry Potter attractions are better at Universal Studios so it is good to do both parks. We got the... More

Unreal, a must do. If you're traveling with teens, forget Disney, go here. Once you step into the Harry Potter area, you truly feel like you've been transported to one of his movie sets.

We really enjoyed the Harry Potter theme and the ride inside Hogwarts was fantastic. When the warning sign at the water ride says you'll get wet! They mean it!!! We had bought the "first in line" passes in advance but we didn't need them because the park wasn't busy. So we could have saved almost 200 bucks. Besides the passes... More

When we went, we got tickets to both parks and had plenty of time to do everything we wanted in each park. We were even able to go back and forth a few times.
