My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
It was OK at Universal. Overall, I would rank it 2nd bottom of all the major parks in Orlando, just above Islands Of Adventure. Not sure what it is, but it just cannot compete with the Disney parks. Some great attractions though. The Mummy gets better every time, and Jaws is still fun, as is Shrek. The MIB is beginning to pale now. We would have given the park a miss this trip, but the Simpsons ride drew us in. It was good but not great. It is basically the Back to the Future ride with a new coat of paint. Having said that, Matt Groening and the team have pulled out all the stops to ensure the time spent before the ride is not wasted. Some great new Simpsons footage is part of the buildup to how the ride plays out. Loads if "in jokes" for fans as Sideshow Bob returns to the fray.

My Review
A good way to get around and get some info and detail on the area as you go. The quality of tour guides can be a bit mixed though. We did the uptown loop and the guy had a real bee in his bonnet, he was really angry about something and seemed desperate for tips. So much so it spoiled the ride somewhat. We jumped on and off 2 downtown buses and both were much better, more informative.

My Review
Good value if you can do all the attractions that the pass allows. We could only manage the Empire State and the Circle Line. Even so it still worked out around what we had paid for the whole pass. It is convenient as well but we did not really come across any queues.
