  • I love this theme park, but I especially love Halloween Horror Nights. It’s one of the best Halloween events in the USA. I have traveled all over the nation for Halloween events and it’s always in my favorites. The production value of the haunts are movie set quality. The theme park itself is super fun! They have interesting shows and the best stunt show ever. They have great characters and fun food options. The rides are good. The studio tour is the best attraction and unique to anything you’ll find at other theme parks.
  • The price is pretty steep for what you get at Universal. The experience is great, but there is just not a lot to do at the park. The studio tour is amazing! One of my favorite things. The newer Jurassic World ride is nice. The changes were good and it is an attraction worth experiencing. If you purchase a ticket it is worth getting a partial season one for not much more to be able to come back. Definitely a better value that way.
  • I haven't been to Universal in over 15 years and I felt like I was visiting a whole new park. The Harry Potter world is incredible. I love the interactive wand spots, shops and rides. I loved the updated studio tour "ride" and Jurassic World. Hit Harry Potter and Jurassic World first thing in the morning. Jurassic had a 300 minute wait for quite some time in the afternoon. It would be nice to see more vegan and vegetarian options. All they had for an actual meal was a veggie patty option for the restaurants serving burgers. If you want breakfast at the park, Harry Potter world offers a veg option. As for the crowd, I went on a Monday and it was still crowded as hell. Maybe a Wednesday would be better? If the express passes weren't so damn expensive, we would have gotten those. With that being said I would go back.
  • I cant get over the virtual rides! Absolutely AMAZING!!!!. Wheelchair access was awesome. Workers helping us care for my sister while she embarked and disembarked the rides was awesome! Thank you so much! The last time we were here was 30 yrs ago and so much has changed, I'm truly amazed. Thank you for a fabulous time! Keep up the great work!
  • The park is definitely a one day trip. You can do almost everything in one go if you are smart about it. Many cool features of the park that aren't in Orlando such as the studio tour. There is definitely some areas that I think need to get updated such as the Simpson's ride. A great place to spend a day on vacation. Pretty good pricing for the ticket, but don't plan on any food deals once you get inside. Harry Potter, The Mummy, and Jurassic Park are for sure the highlights of this location.
