Once you are in there it feels like you are on different world, being a big fan of Hogwarts my favorite part is the Harry Potter World they did a wonderful replica from the movies,, every time we go we have lots of fun, I just wish food was cheaper and lines were shorter though hahaha

Now that Universal has included the Harry Potter rides with the fast pass then it makes our time here worth while. We went during the middle of tourist season and never had to wait longer than 15 minutes.

There is lots to do but the combo of heat, "roller coasters", 3D and not eating/drinking can be a bad mix.
A very early start and going at breakneck speed day one made us slow down and really enjoy the park on day 2. Even the areas meant for younger kids were enjoyable to walk through.

Hi, Allyn!
Thank you for your review! I am glad to read you enjoyed our children play areas, and were able to slow down a little bit and enjoy your second day with us. I hope you had the chance to explore the amber mines in Camp Jurassic, one of my personal favorite walk through areas. I do, however, want to apologize if anyone in your party ended up not feeling well due to a combination of heat, attractions, and not eating or drinking. I personally like to recommend purchasing a Coca-Cola Freestyle Cup that allows you with unlimited refills throughout the day on date of purchase to keep hydrated. I apologize if this information was not properly presented. I have taken the liberty of formally documenting your feedback to pass along to the appropriate teams.

Hadn’t been to universal in a few years but it’s still my favourite park by a long way. Great mix of rides for everyone! I love all the different “islands”, couldn’t pick a favourite as they all are equally amazing. Loved the updated hulk ride, still my favourite ride in Florida! The new king ride was really good too, the new technology available and the quality of the screens these days makes the simulators almost feel reel! Love the water rides, got absolutely soaked on them, super fun!! Can’t wait to go back!
