Universal's Islands of Adventure
One of the best theme parks in Orlando, Islands of Adventure is a first-class journey of rides and attractions. Here, superheroes zoom by on motorcycles, roller coasters whiz overhead, and plenty of rides will get you soaked. Five remarkable islands filled with all your favorite comic and cartoon heroes come to life on high-speed roller coasters, out-of-this-world children rides, and groundbreaking 3-D attractions. Go wild on the Hulk and Dueling Dragons rides, before finishing on the state-of-the-art Amazing Adventures of Spider Man.
One of the best sites for kids is the Mystic Fountain, where a talking fountain delivers a sassy chat with children, while soaking them with his waterspouts when they least expect it. At Seuss Landing, kids can frolic in the interactive play area with squirty triggers, or take a gentle train ride above Seuss Landing on the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride. Take a break in one of the many on-site “island” restaurants or browse the shops for souvenirs.
Halloween Horror Nights - It’s Never Too Soon to Start Panicking.
On select nights in September and October, your worst nightmares will take shape as Universal Studios Florida® theme park is transformed into Halloween Horror Nights®, the nation's premier annual Halloween event. Purchase a 2 or 3 Day combo ticket to visit both Universal Orlando theme parks and the award winning Halloween Horror Nights!
3 days is perfect to go thru Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure so this was a good deal, 3 for the price of 2!
We purchased 2 day tickets to go to both Universal studios and Islands of Adventure. One tiny downfall was we had to commit to the first visit date. Naturally, hurricane Isaac dropped rain everywhere but if you did not go the tickets were voided. So we adventured out in the rain with our ponchos. Surprise surprise everything was open. only thunder and lightening will they close it down. second day we were able to go within 14 days before they expire.
Islands of Adventure at Universal is awesome! Good value for money with the 2 Park hopper ticket. If you can try to stay at one of the Universal resorts you also get complementary Front of the Line passes for most of the rides at the two parks. This will save you a lot of time waiting in queues.
Universal’s Island of adventure is located north of the International Drive resort area. The resort is directly accessible from Interstate-4 via Exit 74B, which empties eastbound onto Universal Boulevard and westbound onto Hollywood Way. Its five 'islands' include Marvel Super Hero Island, featuring The Amazing Adventures of Spider Man (which really is pretty amazing); the dino-happy Jurassic Park; the ersatz-mystical Lost Continent; newest attraction The Wizarding World of Harry Potter; and the kid-friendly Toon Lagoon and Seuss Landing.
